Books have been written on this issue, and the controversy and squabbling about where the "hot" slot games are positioned in a casino are still passionate – 60 years after slot games were 1st added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the superior slot machines were installed just inside the main entrance of the casino; so that casino fanatics passing by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be infatuated enough to come into the casino … play. Our assurance is that this is definitely no longer the case.

Nearly all of the major casinos today are monstrous complexes and now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to position the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near to any doorways.

An additional standard rule is that loose slot machines are installed on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be influenced to play. However, 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 the 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 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 one armed bandits.
