What is a Slot?


A slot is a narrow opening or groove in something. For example, you might mail a letter through the mailbox slot in your post office or put a disc into the CD/DVD drive of a computer. There are countless other examples of slots, and they can be found in all sorts of places.

It’s important to remember that the results of any slot machine spin are completely random and cannot be controlled by the player in any way. This is one of the main reasons why players should avoid chasing a jackpot that they believe is ‘due’. The odds of your pressing the button at exactly the right one-hundredth of a second to win are incredibly minute, so it’s never worth the hassle!

Whether you are playing a traditional fruit-machine type game, a 3-D slot with multiple paylines or an all-way-pays game such as 243-ways or 1024-ways, the payout table provides all of the relevant information you need to play. It contains information on the symbols, winning combinations, payouts and other features of the slot, and is accessed by clicking an icon or link usually placed near the bottom of the screen.

Some online slots have added bonus features that can also be accessed via the paytable. For example, some games feature a fish-picking mini-game where you can select a fish that may reveal a prize. These extras are not available on a traditional land-based slot machine, and they add an element of fun to online slot gaming.
