Volumes have been set forth on this matter, and the debates and discussion about where the "hot" slot games are located in the casino are still there – over sixty yrs after the slots were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the very best slot games were put just inside the entrance of the casino; so that individuals going by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be smitten to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our belief is that this is no longer true.

Just about all of the major casinos presently are colossal complexes … you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot machines near to any of the doors.

An additional traditional rule is that loose slots are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be encouraged 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 slot machine games 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slot machines.
