Volumes have been stated on this item, and the controversy and face-offs about where the "hot" slot machine games are placed in a casino are still taking place – over sixty yrs after slot games were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the most favorable slots were placed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that people walking by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be titillated to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our viewpoint is that this is definitely no longer true.

The majority of the major casinos these days are grand complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slots near to any entrances or exits.

Another standard rule is that loose slot machines are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Nonetheless, 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 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot games.
