Slot Machine Location

Books have been stated on this subject, and the debates and face-offs about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still taking place - 60 years after the slots were first added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the better slot machines were located just inside the entrance of the casino; so that persons walking by would see jackpot winners ... be convinced to come unto the gaming floor ... play. Our frame of mind is that this is no longer the case.

Nearly all of the mega casinos today are behemothic complexes ... you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the 'loose' slots in close proximity to any exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slots are positioned on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Notably 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 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 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slot machine games.
