Books have been set forth on this matter, and the bickering and discord about where the "hot" video slots are placed in a casino are still ongoing - over sixty yrs after slots were 1st placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the better slot games were placed just inside the entrance of the casino; so that potential players walking by would see jackpot winners and be stirred to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our conclusion is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Many of the big name casinos today are humongous complexes and it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have the 'loose' slot machine games close-by any entrances.

Another standard rule is that loose slot games are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. 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 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 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 slot games.
