Books have been written on this topic, and the conflict and face-offs about where the "hot" video slots are positioned in the casino are still passionate – sixty years after the slots were first placed in gambling houses.

The traditional rule is that the very best slot machine games were put just inside the entry of the casino; so that people passing by would see real jackpot winners … be challenged to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our persuasion is that this is definitely no longer so.

Many of the major casinos nowadays are super-colossal complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to situate the ‘loose’ slot machine games near to any entrances or exits.

Yet another classic rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more potential players could see winning jackpots and be energized to play. Notably however, 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 the slot machines 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 slot machine games.
