Volumes have been stated on this item, and the debates and arguments about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in the casino are still taking place – more than sixty yrs after slot games were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The quintessential rule is that the best slots were put just inside the entrance of the casino; so that everyone walking by would be able to see jackpot winners and be tempted to come inside and play. Our theory is that this is no longer true.

Many of the large casinos today are gigantic complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near any doorways.

Yet another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits 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 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.
