Volumes have been stated on this item, and the conflict and disagreement about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in the casino are still on-going – 60 years after one armed bandits were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the very best slot games were positioned just inside the entry of the casino; so that individuals going by would see real jackpot winners and be keen enough to come inside … play. Our philosophy is that this is not so anymore.

Practically all of the big name casinos presently are gigantic complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slots close to any entrances or exits.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machines are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. Importantly though, we find that this also isn’t 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 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 games.
