We Are Waiting For a Slot


If you’re flying a commercial airplane, there is nothing more annoying than when the captain says, “We are waiting for a slot.” You checked in, cleared security, queued to get on board, struggled with overhead lockers and finally got settled into your seat. But then the plane sits there for ages, burning fuel unnecessarily while you wait for it to be cleared to take off. Then, the reason given is, “We’re waiting for a slot.”

In casinos, slots are typically grouped together and marked with denomination, style and brand name. Many machines also display a helpful HELP or INFO button, which will walk players through pay lines, jackpot frequencies and bonus games. If the machine you’re playing doesn’t have a HELP button, you can ask a casino attendant for help.

In football, a slot receiver is the third-string wide receiver who catches passes from the quarterback and is often used on short downs. The great ones can even be used in trick plays, such as end-arounds. If you’re looking for a game to play that has a good payout, try to stick with the lower denomination slots – this will give you more spins and a better chance of winning.
