Books have been stated on this topic, and the controversy and arguments about where the "hot" slots are placed in the casino are still raging – more than sixty years after one armed bandits were 1st installed in gambling houses.

The standard rule is that the best slots were positioned just inside the main entry of the casino; so that potential gamblers going by would see actual jackpot winners and be stirred to come unto the gaming floor … play. Our persuasion is that this is definitely no longer so.

The majority of the large casinos nowadays are jumbo complexes … it’s no longer possible to see inside from the sidewalk, so there’s no longer a reason to have the ‘loose’ slots in close proximity to any doorways.

An additional classic rule is that loose one armed bandits are positioned on the major aisles in the casinos, again so that more folks could see winning jackpots and be inspired to play. Interestingly though, 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 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!

Nowadays, casinos are constantly changing their perspective about where to place the loose one armed bandits.
