Volumes have been written on this issue, and the conflict and disharmony about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in a casino are still bubbling – over sixty yrs after slot machine games were first added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The classic rule is that the better slot games were placed just inside the main door of the casino; so that potential players passing by would see jackpot winners … be inspired to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our philosophy is that this is definitely no longer true.

Nearly all of the big name casinos presently are oversized complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot machine games close-by any of the doors.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be roused to play. Interestingly though, 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 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!

In recent times, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose slots.
