Books have been said on this subject, and the conflict and disagreement about where the "hot" video slots are located in the casino are still rampant – more than sixty years after the slot machines were 1st placed in gambling dens.

The standard rule is that the best slot games were positioned just inside the entrance of the casino; so that casino fanatics walking by would be able to see real jackpot winners … be infatuated enough to come inside … play. Our disposition is that this is definitely no longer so.

Most of the mega casinos nowadays are jumbo complexes and you can no longer see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ slot machine games near to any doors.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot machine games are installed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Importantly 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 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 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!

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