Gambling on Slots Slot Machine positioning
Feb 062021

Books have been set forth on this subject, and the controversy and feuds about where the "hot" slots are positioned in a casino are still rampant – over 60 years after slot games were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the most favorable one armed bandits were put just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that fun seekers going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be enthralled to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our leaning is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Many of the major casinos presently are herculean complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slots near to any exits.

An additional traditional rule is that loose slots are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. However, 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 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 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!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machines.
