What Is a Slot?
The noun slot is a shortened form of the noun’slot’, which originally meant to provide a slot or cut a slot. A sense that arose around 1888 is “to drop a coin into a slot”. Another meaning was “to take a position or fit something into a slot.” Today, this usage of the word has no practical use. In hockey, the slot refers to the area between the faceoff circles and is sometimes referred to as a scoring area.
The HTML element’slot’ is a member of the Web Components technology suite, which allows for a separate DOM tree. The element includes ‘global’ attributes and ‘name’ attribute. The name attribute indicates the ‘name’ of the slot. To use a named slot, simply write #header=”data”.
When creating an utterance, a user can specify multiple slots, or none at all. A bot then identifies the slots in the utterance and maps them to the appropriate entities. For example, ‘rooms’ can map to a built-in slot type, ‘nights’, or ‘date’. Custom slot types are also supported, such as location slots. A user can also specify a slot’s name and map it to a custom entity.
The pay tables on a slot machine display how much credits you will receive if a particular combination of symbols lands. Pay tables are printed on the machine’s face, although older models may include them on the underside of the wheel. Video slot machines generally include them in a help menu. Some pay tables are even listed on the screen’s help menu, so players can easily view them. There are some variations between different versions of the pay tables, but the main ones are listed below.
