Books have been set forth on this matter, and the conflict and disagreement about where the "hot" video slots are located in a casino are still bubbling – more than 60 yrs after the slot machines were 1st installed in casinos.

The standard rule is that the superior slot machines were located just inside the main entry of the casino; so that potential gamblers passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be challenged to come into the casino … play. Our resolve is that this is definitely no longer so.

Just about all of the mega casinos presently are monstrous complexes and it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machines in close proximity to any entrances.

An additional classic rule is that loose slot machine games are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Notably 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 very 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot machines.
