Volumes have been set forth on this subject, and the bickering and discourse about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in a casino are still ongoing – 60 years after slot machines were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The classic rule is that the very best slot games were installed just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that folks walking by would see real jackpot winners and be infatuated enough to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our resolution is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Just about all of the big name casinos nowadays are giant complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slots near to any exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot games are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. 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 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 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 slot machines.
