Slot Corner

A narrow opening or groove in a surface, often used for inserting a fastener. Also called slit, slot, notch, or aperture. 1. (in computer science) A space on a motherboard in which an expansion card can be installed. 2. (in gaming) A place in a game from which players can select the number of coins they wish to bet per spin. 3. (in sports) The position on the defensive back team tasked with covering a wide receiver or other fast receiver in an offensive formation. The slot corner is generally physically well conditioned and has the athletic ability to keep up with the fast-moving receivers in today’s NFL.

4. (in aviation) A scheduled time and place for an aircraft to take off or land as authorized by air-traffic control: The new airline got 40 slots at U.S. airports.

5. (in football) A spot in a defensive formation, typically the fourth of five defensive backs. The slot corner is responsible for coverage of the slot receiver, so this player must be able to run fast and play off-man. This position is usually a high priority for college and pro teams seeking a strong defender.

Some strategies claim to improve the chances of hitting a jackpot by switching machines after a certain period of time, or after receiving some nice payouts (under the assumption that the machine will tighten up). Unfortunately, these tactics are useless – the result of every spin is completely random and previous results have no bearing on future outcomes.
