Slots – The Building Blocks of ATG Personalization

A slot is a dynamic placeholder on the page that waits (passive slot) or calls out for content via a scenario (active slot). A slot can contain an image, text, a button, or any other type of dynamic content. Scenarios work with slots to specify the content that will appear in the slot and with renderers to present that content.

Slots are the fundamental building blocks of ATG personalization. They define how ATG will present content to the user, and they can be configured at several levels:

There are many different types of online slot games. Some feature a progressive jackpot and others offer a fixed prize amount. These bonus features are designed to give players an incentive to choose slots over table games such as blackjack and poker.

In a slot machine, a player inserts cash or, in “ticket-in, ticket-out” machines, a paper ticket with a barcode and activates it by pressing a lever or button. The reels then spin and stop to rearrange the symbols. If the symbols match a winning combination on the pay line, the player receives credits based on the payout table.

When playing a slot machine, the player must keep track of several factors such as the number and type of symbols, the number of paylines, and the potential for winning. These details are often summarized in tables called pay tables. The table will indicate how much a player can win, the minimum denomination required to play, and other important information.
