Volumes have been set forth on this topic, and the controversy and discord about where the "hot" slot machine games are installed in the casino are still passionate – over sixty yrs after slots were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the most favorable slot games were placed just inside the main entry of the casino; so that potential gamblers walking by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be possessed to come into the casino … play. Our deduction is that this is definitely no longer so.

The majority of the big name casinos these days are grand complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot games in close proximity to any doors.

Yet another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be energized 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 the slot machines 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 games.
