Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been said on this issue, and the disquiet and interchanges about where the "hot" one armed bandits are located in the casino are still rampant – more than sixty years after slots were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the very best slot machine games were located just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that potential players going by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be stirred to come inside and play. Our theorem is that this is no longer true.

The majority of the mega casinos nowadays are titanic complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machines close-by any doors.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. 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 very 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 slots.
