In a slot game, players insert cash or, in ticket-in, ticket-out machines, paper tickets with barcodes into a slot or hopper. The machine then activates reels that display symbols, and if the symbols line up on a winning payline, the player earns credits according to the payout table. Symbols vary with each machine but classic icons include fruit, bells and stylized lucky sevens. Most slot games have a theme, and bonuses, jackpots and other features align with that theme.

During the design phase of slot development, artists produce the initial sketches, wireframes and mockups of your game. They can also use this time to create the game art for characters, backgrounds and other important visual elements.

Once the design of your slot is completed, it’s time to begin the testing process. Thorough testing results in fewer bugs and glitches when your slot is released to the public.

A slot is a dynamic placeholder that either waits for content to be added (passive slot) or calls out for it (active slot). Like renderers, slots can be used in Offer Management panels. However, it’s not recommended that a single slot be fed by more than one scenario; doing so may lead to unpredictable results.
