Volumes have been set forth on this matter, and the conflict and disharmony about where the "hot" slots are installed in the casino are still rampant – more than sixty yrs after slot machines were 1st placed in casinos.

The classic rule is that the superior slot games were positioned just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that fun seekers going by would see actual jackpot winners … be smitten to come into the casino and play. Our belief is that this is definitely no longer true.

Almost all of the major casinos these days are immense complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machines close to any exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slots are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Interestingly though, 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 slot machine games 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.
