Volumes have been set forth on this topic, and the bickering and arguments about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in a casino are still rampant – over 60 years after slot machines were first placed in the casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the most favorable slot machine games were put just inside the door of the casino; so that casino fanatics going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be captivated to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our presumption is that this is definitely no longer true.

The majority of the big name casinos nowadays are immense complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slots near any doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slots are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be galvanized 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 one armed bandits 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
