        I've seen a lot of the onlines with the "Stop" button to be used to "Skill Stop" the slot.

        I never really used it, thinking the "Feature" was a skill stop as I watched a thing about making and the RNG of the slots being a "Forgone" conclusion. Once you drop in coins, the answer is already chosen, you just wait for it while the reels spin.

        So anyone ever think this is a useful button?

        I have never used this "STOP" feature.
                I believe as you do that once the spin button is hit, it is already decided what the outcome will be by the computer, or in the land casino the random number generator.  The only thing the stop button would do for me is lessen my playing time, and I dont need any help doing that. 
              How about that turbo spin button, ? That thing is crazy with how fast it is. Again, just lessens your playing time, in my opinion.

        I never use it either, well I have a couple of times, and call me superstitious, but even though I know it's a RNG calling the shot, I still can't help but feel like I'm messin with fate, so I don't.  Basically want as little choice in the matter as possible. I do the same thing if I'm playing BJ too. The fewer decisions I make the less likely I am to get in my own way.

        YES!! I use it every time i play slots... But not like going all crazy but more like trying to predict where the bouns spot my be. so when you think its coming PRESS STOP. beacause the computer only gives out BOUNS ROUNDS once in a full moon. But I must WARN you! Its very AddiCitiVe. Once you start pressing the stop button You'LL Always press it. SO ya. I also noticed that when i press stop and i win something, the prize amount is alot higher then if i didnt press stop and the slot machine picked for me. but it all comes down to you. I rather PICK MY PULLS then the computer, because YouR playing against the house. Best way to see if your a STOP BUTTON PERSON is to just try it  out BETTING PENNIES.....enjoy

        And the definitive answer is... Sometimes.

        Different games it works great to use the stop feature, some it has no advantages at all.
        The question here is in whether hitting the stop button alters the outcome or frequency of winning spins. it takes some practice but in a nut shell I can consistently (8-10) hit bonus rounds in games like Hidden Riches, London Inspector, Green Light and Achilles. Also do well with Paydirt, Coyote Cash, Ceasers Empire, Honey to the Bee, and Haunted Opera.

        My method involves watching the screen and stopping the reels the second my mind caches the flicker of three or more bonus/wilds on screen at same time. This is not to hit on that stop, just to "freeze" the  reels in a likely configuration. Then with two to three spin/stops for those reels to pop around there is the bonus .

        If you watch any individual reel you will see the bonus/wild cycle through on a consistent pattern. each reel has its own pattern  and spin speed so I can usually "set up" the bonus by stopping a reel after the first reel stops on its own allowing the next reels to advance to a bit of a different configuration.

        The whole point is it takes practice. For me, I went into free mode and spent a couple hours of stop and go playing on a variety of games until I felt comfortable trying it out for real (well a free chip, I am not completely insane). It worked and I made the playthrough. Tried another free chip at a different casino... made the playthrough.

        So to sum up, yes I do believe you can influence, to some extent, the outcome of spins based on using the stop button... But it is influencing a future spin... not the one that is spinning.

        Hiya Gene,

        I do use the stop button when i see there is no way im going to win. By the 3rd reel i hit stop. I also get very anxious if 2 symbols come up and im waiting for the third one to pop...........i hit that STOP button real fast!!!!!!!
