Am I really the only person who says "slotting?" It's just easier to write than writing, "Gambling on slot machines," and I cannot be the only person who says slotting. ;)

Yes.

You could even go with "slot play," as in, "How was your slot play today?"
"Dealer has 'rock'... Pay 'paper!'"

Most, unless they are your very best friends, should not ask about your slut play today...

I say "slotting" all the time... but only because it's a backgammon term. :)
