I have played this before and it paid "ok", but the bonus was not easy to get. Pechanga took it out and replaced it with video ones, so I can't play it anymore. The payouts were not that great. Also I think all slots are RNG and stopping the reels won't matter because once the spin button is pressed the first time, game probably has it determined. How I know is because when I do press again during a spin, the symbols I saw when I pressed the button again was gone.
