Books have been said on this item, and the debates and ruckus about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still intense – sixty yrs after slot games were first added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The classic rule is that the better slot machine games were located just inside the door of the casino; so that people passing by would see real jackpot winners … be possessed to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our conviction is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Practically all of the mega casinos presently are titanic complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot games near any doors.

An additional traditional rule is that loose slot machine games are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Nonetheless, 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 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 perspective about where to place the loose slot machines.
