Volumes have been stated on this issue, and the controversy and feuds about where the "hot" slots are positioned in a casino are still on-going - more than sixty yrs after slot machine games were 1st added to the gaming floor in the casinos.

The standard rule is that the better slot machines were positioned just inside the main door of the casino; so that casino fanatics walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners ... be smitten to come unto the gambling floor and play. Our deduction is that this is definitely no longer so.

The majority of the mega casinos nowadays are herculean complexes ... now you can't see inside from the sidewalk, so there's no longer a reason to have the 'loose' one armed bandits close-by any doorways.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot machines are put on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be encouraged 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 one armed bandits 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!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose slot machine games.
