What Is a Slot?


A position in a group, series, sequence, etc.

Slot is a feature in ATG Personalization that allows you to specify which slots can be displayed for each scenario. It also enables you to control how much space each slot takes up in the ATG Personalization console.

A slot is a special container that holds state that can be used by child components. This is useful when you want to create a layout that uses both state from the parent scope and state from the child scope. You can use a slot to do this by adding the template v-slot:header> element to the child component’s template>. The slot is then rendered with the content of the header.

In the past, slots were mechanical devices that spun reels and dropped symbols into the slot. When a winning combination lined up, the machine paid out the prize. Later, manufacturers incorporated electronics and programmed the machine to weight particular symbols. This made it less likely that high-paying symbols would appear on the pay line.

Today, slot games are based on random number generators that generate thousands of combinations every second. They are available in casinos, online, and in some places like airports and shopping malls. Players insert cash or paper tickets with barcodes to play. They can win big prizes, including jackpots and free spins. In addition, some slot games have additional features that increase player engagement. For example, some have regular multipliers like 2X or 3X on all wins. Others have progressive multipliers, which increase with each consecutive win.
