The Slot Collection by Bonaldo


A slot is a narrow opening for receiving or admitting something, such as a coin or a letter. A slot may also refer to:

In the computer industry, a slot is an empty or reserved position for installing a peripheral device such as a memory card or an expansion board. Slots are generally located on the motherboard, although they can also be found on expansion cards, in external enclosures such as cases and USB hubs, and in some laptops.

The slot collection embodies the extensive formal and technological research that has always underpinned Bonaldo’s designs. The slanted top and legs create a geometric interplay that highlights the structural elements in the design. The result is a simple yet elegant table that plays with the concept of minimal shapes articulated in space.

A specialized wide receiver position in the NFL, the Slot is lined up near the center of the field and typically has great speed. They are also good at running precise routes because they must be able to avoid being hit by defenders who can anticipate where the ball carrier is going. The Slot is also used as a running back on pitch plays, reverses, and end-arounds.

The Slot is an essential part of the offensive blocking game because they line up in front of most defensive positions. They must block (or at least chip) nickelbacks, outside linebackers, safeties, and sometimes even perform a crack back block on the defensive ends. On running plays that go to the outside of the field, the Slot will often need to seal off the defense and act as a big decoy.

Each machine has a pay table that lists the number of credits the player can win if a certain combination of symbols lines up on the reels. These tables are usually printed on the face of the machine or, in the case of video slots, listed in a help menu. The number of possible combinations and the corresponding payouts can vary greatly from one machine to the next.

To play a slot machine, the player inserts cash or, in “ticket-in, ticket-out” machines, a paper ticket with a barcode into a slot on the machine. Then the player presses a button or pulls a lever to activate the machine and spin the reels. When the reels stop, they are rearranged to show new symbols and the player is awarded credits according to the paytable. Depending on the theme of the slot, the symbols can include items such as fruits, bells, or stylized lucky sevens. Some slots have bonus features that align with the theme and reward players for completing specific tasks. Other slots have progressive jackpots that increase with each spin of the reels.
