    Do you ever press 'stop' (if available) when playing slots, or do you always let them ride?
    If so, why? Save time, for luck, boredom, or something else?

    I do occasionally, normally when a slot is annoying me and I just want to get away from it :D

    A lot.

    I always play on "fast play" or "turbo mode" when available.
    At RTG i get to play around 120 spins a minute this way :D

    It depends a lot on the software/slot. RTG slots don't enchant me, so I usually do. I sometimes do in the B&Ms if I am a hurray to play.

    But a lot of what I pay 50 cents to a $1, I want to see.

    Yes, I do it quite a lot on RTG, and to a lesser extent on NetEnt.
    It's mainly to save time - all I want is the bonus rounds and so if the scatter (or whatever) hasn't hit on the first reel or 2 I just want to get on with the next spin!

    If I do get the symbol I want I do prefer to let the other reels spin at normal speed. I know it doesn't make any difference to the final outcome, but it adds to the drama and excitement of the games for me. :thumbsup:

    I occasionally use full turbo mode - but not very often.

    I almost never use the Stop button , Very occasionally when I am bored. but in that case I just stop gambling , because when I get annoyed I can not think and almost always loose.

    Same with me, the fun part on most slots is the free spins features, so I want to get them as quick as possible :lolup:

    I probably would more often, if I could utterly convince myself that it genuinely does not matter one iota whether I do or don't, because the outcome is decided as soon as I press 'start/spin'. :oops:

    When I find myself stopping slots it's because

    - Frustration, desperate for a bonus round
    - At the end of clearing a WR
    - Boredom

    lol it's usually frustration and time to find another slot:mad:

    add me to those that stop to *enjoy* the bonus rounds fully. Online I am always turbo mode and generally playing multiple sites at a time. The ability to just auto play and then bounce from bonus round to bonus round on the multiple screens is a big rush.

    I do the same thing in B&M casinos. When I hit a big drawn VP hand, say 4 deuces in DDB and I know its a big win and I want to really savor it and see how many kickers I can get to really pump up the win, I go slow and enjoy every little *ping* that adds to my win.

    I am sure it drives people around me crazy -- but its my pleasure.

    Guilty..:oops:

    Especially on RTG, when I get 2 scatters I usually cant resist hitting that spacebar..
    And then hope for the scatterbells to ring!!:D

    LOTR also has this stop funktion, but I only use it in case of 2 rings..
    It usually eats my balance fast enough already without speeding things up like that!;)

    Same here. If a slot is giving me nothing but garbage spin after spin, frustration builds and clicks get faster. Click click f@#$ click click f@#$ next! :D

    Once in a while I stop them just goofing around trying to stop it on a third scatter (I know it doesn't work that way).

    Absolutely, it's the only way I've been able to win at rtgs which is why I also feel it's too much hard work. lol

    No, it doesn't work that way, but it can be fun fooling yourself into thinking that it does work that way.;)

    I am different because I actually enjoy seeing the reels spinning and spinning, I find it strangely theaputic. Ever since I was playing UK fruites at the seaside I have always enjoyed seeing the reels spin as much as the wins. On a slot I really like such as Enchanted Garden or Scary Rich 2 I really appreciate the graphics and sounds.

    I could never pump them on turbo for bonus rounds as I don't really play slots for the money, it's more like a donation thing with me!

    Me, too. I am a low roller and want my money to last (entertainment?) but on occasion I hit stop. My computer sounds like it's guts are being torn out! I do not like that sound or feeling.

    I tried turbo play at 3Dice a while back and didn't care for it either. Slow and easy for this old broad!! :D

    I didn't notice that myself, but I'll test it out. What I did notice however was on Viking's Treasure (NetEnt also) - as soon as you press stop, any winning that will result are immediately added to your balance (even before the reels actually stop).

    Why "hurry up" the disappointment? I get off while waiting to see my third bonus symbol. And when it doesn't show up I abuse my mouse to hurry up and get a next bet screen. :D
