Volumes have been set forth on this topic, and the contention and discussion about where the "hot" slot machine games are located in the casino are still raging – over sixty years after slot machine games were 1st placed in the casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the most favorable slot machines were located just inside the main entry of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would be able to see jackpot winners … be challenged to come inside and play. Our inference is that this is no longer true.

The majority of the mega casinos today are giant complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near to any exits.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machine games are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be influenced 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 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!

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