What is a Slot?

A slot is a narrow opening in something. You can use a slot to put in coins to make something work. You can also use it to put mail through. The word slot is also used to describe a position or place in a schedule or program. For example, you might have a slot in your calendar where you can visit someone. You can also use it to refer to a place where something happens, such as a meeting or event.

A slot in a computer or other machine is a place where data can be stored and retrieved. It is similar to a disk drive or hard-disk space, but it is much smaller.

In a slot machine, players insert cash or, in “ticket-in, ticket-out” machines, a paper ticket with a barcode into a slot and activate it by pressing a button or lever. The reels then spin and stop to rearrange symbols, which may match a winning combination on the pay table. Depending on the game, symbols can range from simple fruit or bells to stylized lucky sevens. Most slot games have a theme and bonus features aligned with that theme.

When creating a slot in the Offer Management panel, you must define the slot property to specify how the content should be filtered. You should only use one scenario to feed a slot; using multiple scenarios could produce unpredictable results in the offer panel. If you need to set up multiple scenarios for a slot, you must assign it to a reservation at the lowest level in the resources hierarchy (project, folder, or organization). Then, you can assign jobs to that reservation to use its slots.
