Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been set forth on this issue, and the disquiet and feuds about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still rampant – 60 yrs after the slots were first installed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the more favourable slots were located just inside the main entry of the casino; so that persons passing by would see jackpot winners and be attracted to come into the casino and play. Our slant is that this is definitely no longer the case.

The great majority of the large casinos nowadays are super-colossal complexes and now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slots close-by any entrances.

Another classic rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be influenced 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 the slot machines 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot games.
