Books have been said on this matter, and the bickering and interchanges about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still ongoing – over 60 yrs after slot machine games were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the most favorable slot games were put just inside the door of the casino; so that persons going by would see real jackpot winners and be drawn to come inside and play. Our assessment is that this is no longer true.

Nearly all of the big name casinos these days are mammoth complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot games in close proximity to any entrances.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot machine games are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Importantly however, 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 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!

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