I've never heard of "slot pull" but If I had to guess, it may be like a slot tournament.
A slot tournament is when you sign up, they give you special machines to play on, it's always max bet and unlimited amount of credit, however you only have a limited time, maybe a minute or so to try and win (score) as much as possible.
Only the top scores will end up on the board and depending on the type of tournament it is, they could have any amount of winners, with one grand prize maybe.
I hope that helps.

Default slot pull

As I understand it, a "slot-pull" is a privately organized event with cruisers who agree to chip in a set amount of money each and each get a set number of slot pulls. The total amount won will be divided among the players. I haven't participated in one yet, but am signed up for one on an up-coming cruise.

You are right Jackie! This question was asked in 2008, so hopefully they found their answer elsewhere.. I have only done one, and they are usually formed in a Roll Call, not sponsored as an activity offered by the ship like slot tournaments are. I think we all put in $15 each, used a $1.00 Wheel of Fortune machine with a max bet of $3.00 so we each had 5 pulls. The winnings if any are divided among the players. Usually someone is designated to handle the sign up and collect the money beforehand. I think someone usually informs the casino and they sort of oversee the event. The rules can vary of course.
