Dictionary of Slots Terminology

Coin Door


The front door that can be opened for access to the cash box. Early machines used a wooden door, while later games used metal. The condition of this door can tell you a lot about how the game was operated. If the coin door has extra metal, locking bars, or gouges from attempts to pry it open, the machine has had a hard life.

Hopper


The bin inside a slot machine that holds the coins/tokens for payouts.

Hopper Fill


When a slot machine runs out of coins/tokens to payout a winner, attendants must refill the hopper.

One-Armed Bandit


Another name for slot machine.

Spin Cycle


The spin cycle is when the game is eating your coins/credits as you attempt to improve the scores/features. "Spin" comes from the flashing lights that sequence around the back-glass.

VLT


Video Lottery Terminal.
