Books have been written on this topic, and the conflict and discussion about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still passionate – more than sixty years after slot machine games were 1st installed in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the best slot machine games were installed just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that potential gamblers walking by would see actual jackpot winners … be attracted to come inside … play. Our belief is that this is definitely no longer so.

The majority of the mega casinos presently are giant complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot machines close to any exits.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot machines are placed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Importantly though, we find that this also isn’t 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 slots 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 slots.
