What is a Slot?


A slot is a place or position in a series, sequence, etc. A slot can also refer to a position in an organization or hierarchy. The word slots is derived from Middle Low German slo, and the meaning has evolved to mean a “slit or narrow opening” in which something may fit or be placed. This meaning is still used in some languages, especially English.

Slots are one of the most common casino games and there are many different types available. While it is easy to jump straight in and start playing, it’s important to take the time to read the pay table before making any decisions. The pay table will give you all the information you need about how much you can win for landing certain combinations on a payline and any additional features the slot has. It may also include details about the Return to Player (RTP) rate, betting requirements, symbols and jackpot amounts.

Series slots with Periodic Input are similar to other regular Series slots but the values they contain are not solved for each timestep. They display in the same manner but there is a special ornamentation in the column heading to indicate that the value set is periodic input. In addition, they have an option to compress repeated values which can be useful when working with large numbers. These slots also have a configuration option to show the Selection Statistics in the Slot Dialog.
