Character Movement Reels
Caesars Slots’ Long John’s Treasure Map offers an extremely novel base game in which players spin a mini reel set to move a character across a game board. Instead of traditional pay lines, the machine uses symbols on the board to award currency and bonuses.
To win the jackpot, players must move their character to the other side of the board without falling off the sides. This clear goal creates a sense of progress and risk that results in a fundamentally different experience from machines with traditional reel sets.
We interviewed Caesars Slots‘ Vice President of Game Design and Director of Game Design for additional insights on this unique machine.
