RGB Matrix slot machine game

Recommended Posts

I have started to develop a slot machine based an 8x8 RGB matrix. I intend this to be a learning experience, and I am going to focus on the logic and control of the game.


Tiva C Launchpad

TLC5947 breakout from Adafruit

8 PNP transistors

8 1k resistors


As of right now, I have 2x2 sprites in 6 colors representing the symbols on the reels. Each 'spin', I populate an array representing the matrix with randomly chosen colors of sprites and place them in the matrix. Then I set a random number of rotations where the symbols spin and then slow down and come a stop. As of right now, all three reels spin and stop at the same rate, but I plan to update that to be more slot machine like. I also have not implemented any sort of win detection mechanism.

Here is a short video, but it looks much better in person. The scrolling effect is much smoother and realistic.
