Volumes have been stated on this topic, and the disquiet and disharmony about where the "hot" slots are placed in a casino are still intense – sixty yrs after slot games were 1st placed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the most favorable one armed bandits were located just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that potential gamblers going by would see actual jackpot winners … be stimulated to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our presumption is that this is no longer the case.

Most of the big name casinos presently are super-colossal complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machine games close-by any exits.

Another standard rule is that loose slot machine games are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be roused 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 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!

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