How Often Will My "Time Played Updated" trigger fire?

The "Time Played" value for each game updates every 30 minutes or when the game is exited, whichever comes first.

For example, say you're playing a game for 75 minutes. Steam's API update data 3 times: at 30 minutes, 60 minutes, and 75 minutes (when you take a break). The Zap will fire during the first poll after each update.
