French term or phrase: jeux et re-jeux
La notion de chiffre d’affaires utilisée par la FRANÇAISE DES JEUX et le PMU pour présenter les enjeux collectés (représentant un montant de 9,997 milliards d’euros pour la FDJ et de 9,303 milliards pour le PMU) n’est pas pertinente pour les casinos compte tenu du mode d’utilisation des machines à sous (jeux et re-jeux pendant tout une séance).

I'm not a gambler so I don't know the technical term. This is when you're playing on a slot machine and (I think) you keep on betting and betting on what you've previously won (keep on rolling the dice so to speak).

I must admit I don't totally follow the point of the whole sentence, and if anyone can clarify it I'd be grateful, but this seems the obvious translation.

Is it something to do with putting your winnings back into the machine?
