Books have been written on this issue, and the disquiet and disagreement about where the "hot" slot machines are located in the casino are still ongoing – more than sixty yrs after slot machine games were 1st placed in casinos.

The classic rule is that the very best one armed bandits were put just inside the main foyer of the casino; so that fun seekers walking by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be inspired to come inside … play. Our speculation is that this is not so anymore.

Just about all of the major casinos presently are gigantic complexes … 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 to any entrances or exits.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot machines are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Importantly though, 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 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 philosophy about where to place the loose slot machines.
