Books have been written on this issue, and the disquiet and squabbling about where the "hot" slots are installed in the casino are still there – over 60 years after the slot machines were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The quintessential rule is that the best slot machines were placed just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that individuals walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners … be infatuated enough to come into the casino and play. Our reasoning is that this is not so anymore.

Nearly all of the mega casinos presently are gigantic complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot games close-by any entrances.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be energized 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 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!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
