Volumes have been stated on this issue, and the disquiet and discourse about where the "hot" video slots are installed in the casino are still there – sixty years after the slots were 1st installed in gambling houses.

The quintessential rule is that the best slots were put just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that persons walking by would see real jackpot winners … be captivated to come into the casino and play. Our viewpoint is that this is definitely no longer true.

Nearly all of the big name casinos presently are gigantic complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to put the ‘loose’ slot machines close-by any exits.

Yet another traditional rule is that loose slot games are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more fun seekers could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Notably however, 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 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 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!

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