Books have been set forth on this topic, and the debates and interchanges about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still bubbling – more than sixty years after slot machines were 1st installed in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the most favorable slot games were placed just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that fun seekers going by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be possessed to come into the casino … play. Our persuasion is that this is definitely no longer true.

Most of the big name casinos nowadays are massive complexes … it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slots near to any entrances or exits.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slots are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Interestingly 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 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!

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