Volumes have been set forth on this matter, and the conflict and arguments about where the "hot" one armed bandits are positioned in the casino are still taking place – over 60 years after slot machine games were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot machines were installed just inside the main doorway of the casino; so that folks passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners and be possessed to come inside and play. Our presumption is that this is definitely no longer true.

Almost all of the big name casinos today are enormous complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near to any entrances.

An additional classic rule is that loose slot machines are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Interestingly though, 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 one armed bandits 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slots.
