Volumes have been set forth on this issue, and the bickering and interchanges about where the "hot" slot games are located in the casino are still taking place – more than sixty years after the slot machines were 1st added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The classic rule is that the very best slot machine games were positioned just inside the door of the casino; so that individuals going by would see jackpot winners … be inspired to come unto the gambling floor … play. Our inclination is that this is no longer the case.

Nearly all of the large casinos these days are colossal complexes and now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slots near to any doorways.

Another standard rule is that loose one armed bandits are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. Notably 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 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slot machine games.
