Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Volumes have been set forth on this matter, and the bickering and discord about where the "hot" video slots are positioned in the casino are still passionate – over sixty years after the slot machines were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the very best slot games were placed just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that persons going by would see actual jackpot winners and be stirred to come into the casino … play. Our belief is that this is no longer true.

Practically all of the big name casinos these days are huge complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slots near any entrances or exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Notably however, we find that this also is no longer a universal rule.

What casinos found over the years is that people walking down the busy aisles were frequently on the way to somewhere else. If they played the slots at all, they would simply put in their loose change because they happened to be walking by. Win or lose, they would very often not stop to keep playing. And the last thing a casino wants is for someone to win a jackpot by playing only a few coins and then not stay to put it all back in!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machine games.
