Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been set forth on this topic, and the controversy and interchanges about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still intense – over sixty years after slot games were 1st installed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the best slot machine games were located just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that individuals passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be enthralled to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our feeling is that this is no longer true.

The great majority of the mega casinos nowadays are grand complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machine games close-by any entrances or exits.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot games are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Notably though, we find that this also isn’t 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slots.
