Slot Machine positioning

Volumes have been said on this item, and the debates and disagreement about where the "hot" slot machine games are placed in a casino are still happening - more than sixty years after slot machine games were 1st added to the gaming floor in the casinos.

The classic rule is that the best slot machine games were installed just inside the entry of the casino; so that potential gamblers going by would see actual jackpot winners and be drawn to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our assurance is that this is definitely no longer so.

The great majority of the large casinos these days are jumbo complexes ... it's no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the 'loose' slot games near any doorways.

An additional traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be motivated 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 one armed bandits 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
