Slot Machines - Good and Bad Locations

Written by Tom McBroom

Although no one will ever truly know whererepparttar casinos are likely to placerepparttar 142341 loosest slots, we do have some suggestions based on research, staff experience in casinos, and talking to various casino personnel. These suggestions are simply that: suggestions. They may or may not apply to a particular casino. Plus, casinos are notoriously subject to changing their procedures ifrepparttar 142342 players get too lucky!


Here's where our research and experience indicate thatrepparttar 142343 best machines may be located:

* One row in fromrepparttar 142344 major aisles. Lots of people can still hearrepparttar 142345 jackpots andrepparttar 142346 casino avoids customers walking downrepparttar 142347 aisle with no intention of playing slots except forrepparttar 142348 odd coin or two onrepparttar 142349 run.

* Near food and snack bars. The reasoning here is thatrepparttar 142350 sound of jackpots will encourage people to eat faster and get out to playrepparttar 142351 slots.

* Generally, any location that is highly visible from other slot machines. People tend to spend more dollars when they see other slot players winning.

Slot Machines - Does Location Make a Difference?

Books have been written on this subject andrepparttar debates and arguments about whererepparttar 142340 "hot" machines are placed in a casino are still raging 60 years after slots were first installed in casinos.

The classic rule is thatrepparttar 142341 best slots were placed just insiderepparttar 142342 door ofrepparttar 142343 casino, so that people walking by would see jackpot winners and be enticed to come inside and play. Our opinion is that this is no longer true.

Most ofrepparttar 142344 major casinos today are giant complexes and you no longer can see inside fromrepparttar 142345 sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to haverepparttar 142346 loose slots near any ofrepparttar 142347 doors.

Another classic rule is that loose slots are placed onrepparttar 142348 major aisles inrepparttar 142349 casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. However, we find that this also is no longer a universal rule.
