Books have been set forth on this issue, and the bickering and disagreement about where the "hot" slots are placed in a casino are still on-going – more than sixty yrs after slot games were 1st installed in casinos.

The traditional rule is that the very best slot machines were put just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that folks going by would see jackpot winners … be drawn to come into the casino and play. Our reasoning is that this is no longer true.

Many of the mega casinos these days are huge complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ slot machines in close proximity to any exits.

Another standard rule is that loose slot machine games are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. However, we find that this also is not 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 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!

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