Books have been said on this subject, and the disquiet and discord about where the "hot" slot games are placed in a casino are still taking place – sixty yrs after slot games were first installed in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the more favourable slot machine games were positioned just inside the main entry of the casino; so that everyone walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be stirred to come inside and play. Our standpoint is that this is no longer true.

Nearly all of the mega casinos presently are jumbo complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machine games near to any doors.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot machines are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Notably 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 slot machine 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 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.
