How much $ bet per hour would depend on what level coin you are playing. Most -EV games are all over the place, from as low as a nickel all the way up to $100 coins.
Most casinos set up the machines so the games that pay close to 100% can only be played at low denominations. Realistically, +EV games are not really found higher than the quarter level anymore. So you are only wagering $1.25 per hand on these games.
What you are looking for is how many hands per hour someone could play. However, that will also very depending on how easy the game is and how experienced they are. These are all guesses, but just to give you an idea I would say...
300/hr for a new player
500/hr for a casual player
700+ for experienced players staying 100% focused.
