Volumes have been written on this subject, and the conflict and arguments about where the "hot" one armed bandits are located in a casino are still rampant – more than 60 yrs after slot games were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the superior slot machines were positioned just inside the door of the casino; so that casino fanatics walking by would be able to see jackpot winners and be infatuated enough to come into the casino and play. Our belief is that this is definitely no longer the case.

The great majority of the mega casinos nowadays are huge complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot games near to any doors.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot games are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Nonetheless, 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 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!

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