What is a Slot?

A slot is a narrow opening or groove in something, for example a hole to drop coins into a machine. It can also refer to a position in a sequence or schedule. We use the word slot to mean a particular place in a program, for instance, ‘the next available time slot’ or ‘the slot for the upcoming meeting’. Finally, it can refer to the gap or notch in the wing of an airplane that allows air to flow over the upper surface and maintain a smooth flight.

A number of different types of bonus features are included in modern online slots. Some of the more popular ones are free spins rounds, sticky wilds, re-spins and cascading symbols. The rules of these bonus features are usually explained in the pay table.

The Pay Table

A payout table is a list of possible payouts from a slot machine based on specific symbol combinations. It normally shows a picture of each symbol, together with how much you can win if you land (typically three, four or five) matching symbols on a payline. It may also highlight any special symbols, like the Wild symbol, and explain how they work.

A slot is a container for content used by the Service Center. A slot can be filled with different scenarios, each of which can have a number of properties that determine how the scenario will behave when it is fed to the Service Center. It is generally recommended that you only use one scenario for a slot as using multiple scenarios can lead to unpredictable results.
