When you sit down to play slots, how many hours do you normally play?
And how many spins?

On a single machine? Usually less than two minutes and probably twenty, or so, spins.

Suspension words! What the heck man?
20 spins? You're that lucky?

Some of them take fewer spins, on average, than Golden Egypt. 100 spins on GE is probably also a lot for a single play; not Earth-shattering, but unusual, in my experience.

I was kind of joking to the effect that I only play slots for AP-purposes, anyway. It's probably more than twenty spins per machine, unless you count all of the various machines I, "Check," and end up taking zero spins.

I can also say that there is one machine where you would never take twenty spins (on an individual play) and would rarely take more than three. There's another machine where it would be very unusual to take more than ten, but it has happened sometimes due to very unusual combinations of events.

My local casinos don't have Icy Wilds anymore, but that was a machine where you would most typically only take 1-3 spins per +EV situation.
