Books have been stated on this issue, and the controversy and interchanges about where the "hot" slot games are placed in the casino are still rampant – sixty yrs after one armed bandits were 1st added to the gaming floor in gambling dens.

The standard rule is that the better one armed bandits were located just inside the main door of the casino; so that fun seekers going by would see real jackpot winners … be drawn to come unto the gaming floor and play. Our feeling is that this is no longer true.

The great majority of the large casinos these days are massive complexes … now you can’t see inside from the sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to place the ‘loose’ one armed bandits near any entrances or exits.

Another traditional rule is that loose slot games are located on the major aisles inside the casinos, again so that more persons could see winning jackpots and be galvanized to play. Notably 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!

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