What is a Slot? A slot is a hollow depression in wood that’s shaped like a mouth or is used to receive something sliding in. This word originated in late 14c. It’s also a synonym for deer, whose track is followed by bloodhounds. It has many definitions, including deer track, and has several meanings. Slot is also used in a gambling context. In gambling, a slot is used for a reel-like device that gives a payout.
A slot is also a prime spot for a winger or defenseman to take a shot. The high slot can be the perfect spot for a slap shot by a defender. In addition, a center or winger can put their stick out in front of the goalie to redirect the shot. The goalie must react lightning-fast to stop the puck. The goalie must also be aware of these two possibilities when facing a slot shot.
Whether the slot is passive or active, it’s an important part of the overall design. If the slot contains dynamic items, the content will be determined by a scenario. The scenario will either use the “Add Items to Slot” action or use a targeter to fill the slot with content. The scenario element will then refer to a specific item in the repository. In addition, a scenario may refer to a content repository. Both slots and scenarios work in tandem to deliver content. A renderer is a necessary part of the process.
