The pay table is the table of credits that you will receive if certain symbols line up on the reels. Some symbols represent multiple symbols, so it’s helpful to know how many different types of symbols are represented. The pay table is usually printed on the machine’s face (in the case of older machines, above and below the wheels), while video slots display it in a help menu. Some modern slot games also feature bonus features that can increase your odds of winning.

A slot in a hockey game is a rectangular area that extends toward the blue line. It’s the fourth position on a flying display.
