A narrow opening, groove, or channel, used for receiving something, such as a coin or letter. Also used figuratively to refer to a position or slot in a sequence or series. (From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition)

The space in a machine where coins or paper tickets are inserted for activation. In conventional mechanical machines, the reels stop when a winning combination of symbols appears; the machine then pays out credits based on its paytable. Modern machines, called video slots, may offer a variety of themes and payout systems, such as progressive jackpots and multiple ways to win.

When you’re playing a slot machine, try to stay calm and play responsibly. It’s easy to get carried away by the thrill of the spinning reels and the anticipation of a big win. But remember that luck is a huge factor in the odds of hitting a jackpot and that you’ll most likely lose more often than you win. So, play responsibly and set limits on your spending. Also, pick machines based on what you enjoy most about them—whether that’s simpler games with one payout line or ones with a wide range of bonus features.

A small, open space on a page or web site where content can be placed. In Content Studio, a slot is a dynamic placeholder that either waits passively for content (a passive slot) or calls out for it using a targeter (an active slot). Slots work in tandem with scenarios and renderers to deliver content to a Web page.
