What is a Slot?

A narrow notch, groove or opening, as a keyway in a machine or a slit for coins in a vending machine.

A position in a group, series or sequence, as of a job, time or activity. He slotted his CD into the player.

In a video slot machine, one or more reels are shown on screen. Each reel may have a single or multiple symbols that appear on each spin of the reels, and the player’s goal is to line up winning combinations of symbols on the pay-line(s).

There are many “how-to-win” strategies floating around online, but these only give players the illusion that they can control the game. Electronic and online slots use randomizing software to decide which symbols will land on the reels. So, even if you play on a game with the same theme, different developers’ games will have a slightly different RTP (return to player).

In hockey, a high slot is the prime location for a defender to take a shot on net. A well-placed one-timer from the high slot can slip the puck under a goalie’s pads for a score. There are very few things more exhilarating in a game of hockey than a well-placed slap shot from the high slot.
