Brian Christopher will oftentimes do a few rapid spins if the game isn’t cooperating with him. A player wonders if there’s relevance to it:

Are three rapid spins that important? If a win depends on the microsecond you press the button, it’s impossible to press the button at the same interval. Kevin S.

Ultimately it’s a neutral decision – we’ll never know what the outcome would have been if Brian kept spinning at the same normal rate otherwise.

There’s no cycle or rhythm to a slot, so changing up timing is more for us than for the machine. Humans are superstitious and like to feel in control of the game, which is probably why people slap the screens and bang the buttons too – it’s a way of attempting to feel like there’s some control in an outcome that’s determined inside a machine and not by skill.

In Brian’s case he’s also filming his play for others to watch – dead air and dead spins aren’t the most exciting. Rapid firing is a way of changing up the feel of the moment and keep things interesting for us too – and those times when he manages something exciting, it comes as a quick surprise too.

So as a player we don’t necessarily have to do any rapid firing or change our timing. But mentally just like shaking things up when things are getting stale, so can changing up the spin pacing for a bit. Just keep in mind rapid firing is also placing more bets on a game that works in favor of the casino, so constant rapid fires is, over time, going to deplete a player’s bankroll faster.

But aside from that, it isn’t going to necessarily be any better or worse, and from that perspective it’s also harmless – do what makes you feel the best and have the most fun, because ultimately playing slots is supposed to be entertainment.
