Volumes have been written on this subject, and the disquiet and disagreement about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in the casino are still there – 60 years after slot games were first placed in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the better slots were put just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that fun seekers passing by would see actual jackpot winners … be convinced to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our philosophy is that this is no longer the case.

Many of the mega casinos presently are super-colossal complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot games close-by any exits.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot machine games are located on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Importantly however, 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 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!

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