How to Create a Slot Ticket in BigQuery


A slot is a thin opening or groove in something. It’s used to hold letters and postcards in the mail. It can also be a hole in a board or other material that is used to store a piece of information.

A slot-based ticket allows your audience to book appointments with one of your advisors for a fee. You can create multiple ticket blocks and assign them to different advisors according to their availability. The tickets can include custom fields, such as the customer’s billing account or currency. This information will not be visible to your audience in the event page but will show up on automated confirmation emails and PDF templates they receive after purchasing time slot tickets for your event.

Time slot based tickets allow your customers to purchase tickets that are valid for a set amount of time. For example, if you’re hosting an event where attendees can book appointments with career advisors for a certain period of time, you can create time slots based on the availability of each advisor. This will help you avoid overbooking advisors and allow you to maximize the number of appointments you can sell.

Depending on the type of ticket you’re creating, you can ask your attendees to fill out custom fields that will be sent to them as automated confirmation emails and PDF tickets after they buy time slot tickets for your event. This will make it easier for your customers to provide you with accurate information and make their experience more seamless.

To use a time slot ticket, select the Time Slot Ticket from the Cost and Tickets section of your event. Then, select the billing account, currency, any promotional codes you’ve created and tax options. Finally, you’ll be asked to give a name for your first ticket block and add any additional information you’d like to share with your audience.

If you’re using an on-demand pricing model, BigQuery automatically recalculates the number of slots each query needs, based on its dynamic DAG and query workload. When a query requests more than the slots it has available, these slots get queued up and executed as they become available.

In addition to recalculating query slots, BigQuery re-allocates or pauses slots as needed. When a query needs more slots than are currently available, BigQuery uses speculative execution to accelerate query progress.

Pay table – A slot machine’s pay table displays details of symbols, special features, and any jackpots. It may be displayed permanently on the machine or it can be shown by a series of images that are triggered via a touchscreen.

The pay table is a useful way to find out what symbols will be on the reels and how much you can win from landing three, four or five of them. It’ll also tell you how many paylines the game has, and any betting requirements.

RTP – A slot’s Return to Player percentage is the average amount it will return to you in the form of winnings over time, compared to how much you’ve wagered. This can be a good indicator of whether the machine has a low or high variance.
