Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

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

The classic rule is that the superior slot games were put just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would see real jackpot winners and be titillated to come inside and play. Our estimation is that this is definitely no longer true.

The great majority of the major casinos these days are immense complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ one armed bandits close to any exits.

An additional standard rule is that loose slots are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Interestingly though, 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 one armed bandits 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
