There's a new slot machine in the casino in which you frequently gamble away all of your money!

Slot Machine

There are heads of animals above each slot... A pig, a parrot that rotates after each spin and a umkrabbit. Maybe the slot machine isn't random and there's a unique pattern for each slot?

CSV Version:

Slot 1,Slot 2,Slot 3
UJL,OIC,EJA
ZCQ,CQE,ZHT
LCI,FHJ,PEW
BWI,MQU,QZU
ELC,BJR,RPX
LAG,GWM,TQM
BRS,RXD,WRD
EAS,OAM,UTY
KCY,JHF,XWN

What is the pattern for each slot?

In addition to @mkinson's answer, finishing the second slot:

The difference between the last letter of the one slot and the first of the next is 0, 1, 3, 7, ... going forwards (2n-1-1).

Partial answer to the second slot:

Begins with subtracting 6 letters from O to I, then 6 more from I to C. Next it's 12 letters between, then 24, then 48, then 96, etc.
