I searched for "games of slot machines" and "rounds of slot machines." However these phrases can be easily mistaken for other meanings.

What's the correct way of saying an individual game (one game = pay one time)?


If you look on the Wikipedia article for slot machines, it seems that the term round is used in the context that you are asking about, whereas games appears to mean the types of game that various machines offer. Also, the Wikipedia article and other sites always talk about bonus rounds, but never bonus games.

  • So you'd say "Five rounds of slot machines"? – alex Dec 18 '17 at 14:59
  • The usual preposition is on. – Mick Dec 18 '17 at 15:02

You could call the individual attempt on a slot machine a pull.

You've earned five free pulls.

  • So you'd say "Five pulls of slot machines"? – alex Dec 18 '17 at 14:59
  • I'm not quite sure what you want to say with "of slot machines". You could say "five pulls on the slot machine". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Dec 18 '17 at 15:07
