Volumes have been stated on this subject, and the controversy and face-offs about where the "hot" video slots are placed in the casino are still rampant – more than 60 years after slots were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the most favorable slot machines were put just inside the door of the casino; so that potential gamblers passing by would see jackpot winners and be influenced to come into the casino and play. Our determination is that this is no longer true.

Practically all of the major casinos today are colossal complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot games close-by any entrances or exits.

Another classic rule is that loose slots are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be motivated to play. Importantly 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 slots 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot machine games.
