Books have been set forth on this subject, and the bickering and discussion about where the "hot" slot games are installed in the casino are still on-going – over 60 yrs after one armed bandits were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the more favourable one armed bandits were put just inside the entrance of the casino; so that potential players passing by would see actual jackpot winners and be stimulated to come inside and play. Our estimation is that this is no longer true.

Just about all of the mega casinos presently are magnificent complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machine games close-by any doorways.

Another traditional rule is that loose one armed bandits are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged 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 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 very 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 one armed bandits.
