Spinners are rotating metal plates which close a switch once per rotation.

In MPF spinners are configured just like normal switches:

switches:
   s_my_spinner:
      number: 42     # number depends on your platform

It is very common to count the rotations of your spinner per player. You can eiher use a player variable or a counter for that. This is an example:

switches:
   s_my_spinner:
      number: 42 # number depends on your platform

# in your base mode add 1 for every rotation to a player variable which you can use in slides
variable_player:
   s_my_spinner_active:
      spinner_rotations: 1

# in a game mode the player needs to spin the spinner 10 times
counters:
   spinner_rotations:
      count_events: s_my_spinner_active
      count_complete_value: 10
      events_when_complete: mode_finished
