Slot Machine Location

[ English ]

Books have been stated on this item, and the disquiet and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in a casino are still bubbling – over sixty years after slot machines were 1st installed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the more favourable slot machines were put just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that folks passing by would see actual jackpot winners and be infatuated enough to come into the casino and play. Our sneaking suspicion is that this is definitely no longer true.

Just about all of the large casinos presently are massive complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot games in close proximity to any of the doors.

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