Volumes have been stated on this topic, and the debates and face-offs about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in the casino are still happening - over sixty years after the slot machines were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the best slots were located just inside the main entryway of the casino; so that everyone passing by would see real jackpot winners and be baited to come unto the gambling floor ... play. Our thought is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Most of the mega casinos today are grand complexes and you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there's no longer a reason to position the 'loose' slot machine games close to any entrances.

Another classic rule is that loose slots are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential gamblers could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Notably however, we find that this also is not 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 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!

Today, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slots.
