Volumes have been stated on this topic, and the bickering and disharmony about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still taking place – over 60 years after the slots were first placed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the more favourable slot games were put just inside the door of the casino; so that fun seekers passing by would be able to see jackpot winners … be smitten to come into the casino and play. Our view is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Almost all of the large casinos today are oversized complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slots in close proximity to any of the doors.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot machines are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons 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 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 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot machine games.
