Books have been set forth on this topic, and the disquiet and disharmony about where the "hot" slot machines are placed in the casino are still taking place – more than sixty yrs after the slot machines were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the best slots were put just inside the main door of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would see actual jackpot winners and be infatuated enough to come inside and play. Our assessment is that this is no longer the case.

Many of the big name casinos nowadays are enormous complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot games close to any entrances.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot machine games are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Notably though, 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot games.
