What is a Slot?

Articles about slot

A narrow opening in a machine or container, such as one used to take coins. In computing, a slot is also a location in a motherboard that can be used to hold expansion cards (such as an ISA card, PCI card, or AGP card). The slots on a computer are arranged in a standard pattern, with each of the four corners containing one of them.

In casinos, a slot is a machine that pays out the most money to a player over a specific timeframe (usually 1 hr). These machines are usually high volatility, meaning they don’t win often but when they do they pay big. It’s a good idea to test the payout of a slot before playing, putting in a few dollars and seeing how much they pay back over time. If it only returns about ten dollars over the course of an hour, that’s probably not a good machine and you should move on.

In software, a slot is a dynamic placeholder that either waits for content (passive slot) or calls out to get it (active slot). A slot’s contents are dictated by a scenario that uses the Add Items to Slot action or targets a repository using the Slots in Repository action. Generally, it is not recommended to use more than one scenario for the same slot in the offer management panels because this can lead to unpredictable results.
