Slot Machines - Good and Bad Locations


Although no one will ever truly know where the casinos are likely to place the 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 if the players get too lucky!

THE GOOD LOCATIONS FOR SLOTS

Here's where our research and experience indicate that the best machines may be located:

* One row in from the major aisles. Lots of people can still hear the jackpots and the casino avoids customers walking down the aisle with no intention of playing slots except for the odd coin or two on the run.

* Near food and snack bars. The reasoning here is that the sound of jackpots will encourage people to eat faster and get out to play the 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.

THE BAD LOCATIONS FOR SLOTS

Here too, the suggestions, while based on research and experience, may or may not apply to the casino you are in. With that disclaimer, here is where we feel the tight machines are located:

* Near table games. People at table games, especially blackjack, have no intention of playing slots and the noise of jackpots going off will simply irritate them and perhaps cause them to leave. This same rule applies to machines near the sports betting areas.

* Near show or ticket lines. People in these lines are not going to get out of line to play slots. For the most part they are done gambling for that time and the sound of jackpots is wasted on them.

* Any remote or low traffic areas. Remember, casinos like for the most people possible to see a jackpot when it's won to encourage them to play.
