Volumes have been said on this matter, and the debates and interchanges about where the "hot" slot machine games are installed in the casino are still passionate – over 60 years after slot machine games were first placed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the best slots were installed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that everyone going by would see actual jackpot winners … be stirred to come into the casino … play. Our deduction is that this is no longer the case.

Most of the major casinos these days are monstrous complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machines in close proximity to any of the doors.

Another standard rule is that loose slot games are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Notably though, we find that this also is no longer a universal rule.

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 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 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!

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