What Is a Slot?

A slot is a narrow opening, typically in a rectangular shape, in ice or field hockey. The word is related to the Middle English word slod, which was derived from Old French esclot, which is of uncertain origin. The word also has cognates in the German Schloss. Although it may have been derived from the French word slod, the modern meaning of slot is attributed to its English origin.

While many slots can represent a variety of symbols, some can only be represented by one. The pay table on a slot machine tells the player how much money they’ll win when their symbols line up. The pay table is displayed on the machine’s face or, on older machines, above and below the wheels. Modern video slot machines have a help menu where you can view it. In addition, the pay table is easy to access by pressing “help” when playing.

Once a user has created their slots, they can map utterances to them. Select the utterances tab and double-click on a word or phrase. Select the slot name. The selected word or phrase will then appear with a colored underline, indicating the slot’s value. Editing the slot information allows you to change its value. Finally, you can delete a slot by selecting it on the Slots tab.
