Slots and Utterances



There are two basic types of slots: built-in and custom. Each type has a defined set of information. For example, flight codes or numbers can be mapped to a custom slot type. Similarly, phrases found in utterances can be mapped to a built-in or custom slot. The slots can be added to a Utterance by selecting the Slots tab and entering the name of the slot. In this way, a user can create new slots and map them to utterances.

A slot is a narrow opening in a computer’s motherboard, which connects to the processor. This was created to make upgrading a processor easier. The first slot was released by the Intel Corporation in 1997. In 1999, AMD released a similar type of device, called a Slot A. The AMD Slot A is incompatible with the original Slot 1 but compatible with the latter. In addition, Intel released Slot 2, a larger version of the Slot 1 that could be used with Pentium II processors. However, the slots are no longer used in new computers. They have been replaced by sockets.

In the 1980s, slot machine manufacturers began to incorporate electronics. They began programming the machines to weigh certain symbols. In addition to the paytable, symbols are also used as a determinant of when they are paid. A single symbol can win the player a maximum of one of these credits. While the pay table has changed significantly since then, a few things remain the same. One of the main differences is that a single symbol can represent many different types of symbols.
