Do you stop the slot roll or let it stop on its own?

I've been a loyal 3dice player since I started playing online over a year ago. Loyal as in have never played at another online casino (EVER). I've branched out recently for various reasons and recently started playing at Grande Vegas who have great customer service and almost as quick payouts as 3dice and managed a $2,800 withdrawal on my third deposit. I'll keep 3dice open and will likely deposit occasionally. It feels nice though to have other options at casinos that you can trust will pay you in a timely manner.

I'm not sure what the games at Grande Vegas are called, RTG(?) Anyway, the ability to spin and then immediately hit spin again to stop the reel dead in its tracks is new to me. I'm finding that I hit better when I do stop it before it stops slowly on its own. Does anybody have any thoughts on that? I can't tell if by stopping it quickly, it just clicks into what it would have, had I not stopped it. Is that the case?

It ends up being the same, the spin is determined as soon as you hit the spin button, you can just get more spins in.

Pressing the "STOP" button on the slot only does one thing........it makes you lose faster.

It has absolutely NO effect on the outcome as it has already been determined by the server before it is sent to your computer.

Lol, I knew that! When I saw the title of this thread I knew you were going to chime in. You should probably keep that statement as a macro for easy, one keystroke dispersal.

I let the spins stop on their own. I hate when I accidentally press the stop button, I feel like I'm being robbed of playing time. I play purely for entertainment, with the chance of winning.

I've seen this with some of the RTG slots like paydirt and the land casino slot ducks in a row. I don't see that game at land casino any more but some may remember it.

anyway if you look real close when stopping the reels you can actually see the symbols change, that proves the outcome is determined when you press spin. Its really noticible on that ducks in a row slot.

Like others have mentioned - The outcome is the same ...

I for one absolutely cannot play at normal game speed. I play RTG on Turbo, NetEnt and MG on Quickspin.

I find it horrifically slow and time consuming to play and let the reels roll.. I go in for one thing, to try and win. IF I don't, then at least I didnt spend the last 30 mins on my $100 hoping to hit something when I could have been done in 10 :)

Lots of people play for the entertainment - I am entertained even on Turbo Play :)

In the US the on-line casino scene, for the most part, has devolved into something more resembling an old fashioned arcade. If I go into 'Fun 'N Games' at the local mall with $100 to play pac-man and space invaders I want a full days entertainment from that money!

I personally have not been able to win with any regularity since the UIGEA.

Sure I've had a couple of bright spots but more for entertainment with the odd slight chance.

Where I live I have about 10 B&M casino within a 2 hour drive, that's where I get serious! There's a buffet on the line there!
