The pay table of a slot game shows how much you can win if you land matching symbols on the reels. It also lists the different types of symbols that can be used in a game. Some pay tables use animations to help you understand the information. You can also find a list of bonus features, which are mini games that can be triggered by special symbols.

A slot is a dynamic placeholder that either waits for content to be added (a passive slot) or calls out for content using a targeter (an active slot). It can be filled with content from one repository type, such as media-image, or with multiple repository items, such as a scenario and a content offer. In general, it is recommended that you use a single scenario to feed content into a slot because using multiple scenarios can lead to unpredictable results. Slots work in tandem with renderers to deliver content to the page. They also work in conjunction with ACC, which provides a way to manage content through slots and scenario-based targeting.
