Can this loop run in parallel (2)?

You have enjoyed the previous dice game so much, you want to play it multiple times! You wrap the original code in a function:

play <- function() {
  total <- no_of_rolls <- 0
  while(total < 10) {
    total <- total + sample(1:6, 1)

    # If even. Reset to 0
    if(total %% 2 == 0) total <- 0 
    no_of_rolls <- no_of_rolls + 1
  }
  no_of_rolls
}

and construct a loop to play the game:

results <- numeric(100)
for(i in seq_along(results)) 
    results[i] <- play()

Do you think this for loop can be (easily) run in parallel?
