The slot is the area of the net where a player has the best chance to score without deflection. A shot from the slot is more accurate because of the clear, straight line to the net. The low slot also allows players to shoot wrist shots without getting caught up in defenders. It is important to be aware of the defenders, because they will try to make the slot look like no man’s land.
Payback percentages on slot machines
Payback percentages on slot machines are a measure of how profitable a slot machine is. Higher denomination machines have higher payback percentages than lower denomination machines. For example, a five-cent machine with a 94% payback percentage will pay back 94 cents for every dollar spent on that machine. By contrast, a seven-cent machine with a 75% payback percentage will pay out only 25 cents for every dollar wagered. Payback percentages on slot machines vary between casinos.
