Books have been said on this matter, and the conflict and disharmony about where the "hot" slot games are located in the casino are still passionate – over sixty years after slots were 1st placed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the better slot machine games were positioned just inside the entry of the casino; so that fun seekers going by would be able to see jackpot winners … be challenged to come into the casino … play. Our sentiment is that this is definitely no longer true.

Almost all of the major casinos these days are titanic complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slots near to any doors.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Importantly though, we find that this also isn’t 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slot machines.
