Books have been stated on this subject, and the bickering and squabbling about where the "hot" slot machine games are positioned in the casino are still rampant – more than sixty years after slot games were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The traditional rule is that the better slot machines were positioned just inside the main door of the casino; so that folks going by would be able to see actual jackpot winners and be captivated to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our position is that this is not so anymore.

Many of the mega casinos nowadays are grand complexes … you no longer can see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near any entrances or exits.

An additional classic rule is that loose one armed bandits are put on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be motivated 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!

These days, casinos are constantly changing their philosophy about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
