What is a Slot?

A position or spot in a series, sequence, or organization. Also called berth, billet, and position.

A slot can also refer to:

A machine that displays a set of rotating reels with printed graphics and gives you the opportunity to win money by aligning certain sets of symbols on a pay line, which is typically located across the middle of the screen. The winning combination determines your payout and how much you can bet next time you play. Unlike other gambling machines, which use dice or cards, slots are based on algorithms and random numbers generated by the machine. It takes split-second timing to hit the jackpot, so if you see someone walking away from a slot you’ve been eyeing, don’t assume it’s “due.” In fact, casinos often place hot slots at the ends of aisles to attract customers and encourage them to spend more money.
