So ive been playing a bit of slots here lately, and ive noticed that most of the RTG slots have a "stop spin" function after the spin is initiated. Ive done some a messing around with it to see what, if anything, might change in terms of payout amount and payout frequency. I dont think ive noticed too much of a difference other than the fact that ones bankroll will probably deplete at a much higher rate.
that being said, does anyone know if there is a true advantage in using the Stop Spin function? or is it purely for the sake of time saving?

It's an illusion of control. The result of your spin was determined the split-second you pushed the "spin" button. All the rest is theater, except during some Bonus Rounds, a second spin or start or random picks will be further controlled by when you press that button/touch the screen.

Most land-based slots have the slam stop feature too. It's just for the sake of the impatient, it has nothing to do with determining the outcome.
