The Slot element allows you to create a container for the content that is used to fill a slot in the ATG Service Center. A slot can be either a Media-image or a Scenario, but it is recommended that you only use one scenario per slot. Multiple scenarios can cause unpredictable results, unless you have carefully configured them.
When most people think of casinos, they picture high-stakes, high-risk bouts of chance where fortunes can be made and lost in the blink of an eye. However, the prevailing image of casino gambling is changing. Schull says that video slots are becoming the dominant force in the industry, generating more profits than all other casino games and accounting for up to 85 percent of total casino earnings.
Slot machines have been around for decades, but modern technology has allowed them to become much more sophisticated. When manufacturers incorporated microprocessors, they could program the machine to assign different odds to each of the symbols displayed to the player. This meant that a particular symbol would appear to be “so close” to a winning combination, even though it might only occur once on the reel displayed to the player. It also allowed for larger jackpots and more exciting games, while still keeping the percentage payback and the odds under control. Aside from the technical advances, there has been an enormous shift in the psychology of slot machines. Psychologists have found that players reach a debilitating level of addiction to these games three times faster than they do with table games like blackjack or roulette.
