As slot machines continue to incorporate elements from other genres, designers have to strike a balance between introducing new mechanics and maintaining the flow of slots play. Two new machines from Lotsa Slots and Slotomania, Lemur Lovers and Roundtrip with Lucy, provide great examples of how to achieve this balance.
