Regular Expression - Check for multiple /

Hi,

Using regular expressions, can someone show me how to search a text column to identify multiple "/" ?  

For example;

This is a test comment/                   ---> Do not want this one because only single "/"
This is another/ test/                       ----> I want this one because it has multiple "/"
This is yet another test///               ----> I want this one because it has multiple "/"
Yet again                                            ---> Do not want this one because there are no "/"
