A slot is a position within a group, series or sequence. It is also an opening or a position where something fits or can be placed easily. The Slot collection by Giuseppe Vigano for Bonaldo consists of a console table and coffee table that are united by their minimalist shapes articulated in space. The collection reflects the extensive formal and technological research that has always characterised the company’s work.

A lot of people love playing slots because it’s easy: just put in some money, line up some identical symbols and you can win a lot. However, there is a bit more to it than that, and knowing some key tips can help you play better and have more fun.

Start with a plan: Decide how much you’re willing to spend and stick to it. Make sure that it’s money you can afford to lose and that you’ll only go in with the amount of cash you can comfortably spare. This will help you stay in control and prevent you from chasing that ‘due’ payout that never comes.

It’s random: Every spin of a slot is controlled by a computer chip that randomly selects numbers within a huge spectrum of possibilities. This is why you can’t ‘trick’ the machine or affect its outcome by stopping or resetting the reels. There are a few games that involve skill like IGT’s Reel Edge series, but they’re the exception and not the rule.

Know when to walk away: Don’t keep playing if you’re losing. This can lead to a vicious cycle of trying to break even and costing you more money in the long run. Instead, decide in advance when you’ll stop playing and stick to it.
