Slot Machine Location

Volumes have been stated on this item, and the disquiet and arguments about where the "hot" video slots are installed in the casino are still bubbling – more than 60 years after the slot machines were 1st installed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the better slot machine games were positioned just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that individuals passing by would see real jackpot winners and be keen enough to come into the casino … play. Our frame of mind is that this is definitely no longer true.

Most of the mega casinos today are monstrous complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot games near any entrances or exits.

An additional classic rule is that loose slots are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Importantly however, we find that this also is not a universal rule any more.

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 slot games 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machine games.
