Books have been set forth on this issue, and the bickering and interchanges about where the "hot" one armed bandits are installed in the casino are still bubbling - 60 years after the slot machines were first added to the gaming floor in casinos.

The quintessential rule is that the best slot machines were installed just inside the main door of the casino; so that everyone walking by would be able to see actual jackpot winners ... be enthralled to come inside ... play. Our theory is that this is definitely no longer so.

The great majority of the mega casinos today are behemothic complexes ... it is not possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there's no longer a reason to put the 'loose' one armed bandits close-by any entrances or exits.

Yet another standard rule is that loose slot machine games are placed on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be energized 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 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 slots.
