Volumes have been stated on this matter, and the debates and disharmony about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still there – over sixty yrs after slots were 1st placed in the casinos.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot machines were installed just inside the main entry of the casino; so that individuals walking by would see jackpot winners … be aroused to come inside … play. Our conviction is that this is definitely no longer true.

Many of the mega casinos nowadays are super-colossal complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slot games near any doorways.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machines are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Notably however, 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 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!

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