This a slot machine that resembles the real slot machines played in the casinos ! To create the project, you need to insert three image boxes into the form and program them so that they will display a set of three different pictures randomly when the user presses on the spin button. It involves a randomization process. Next, a timer needs to be incorporated into the procedures so that the program can produce animated effects. In addition, you can also insert the Microsoft Multimedia Control so that it can play sounds in synchronization with the spinning of the slot machine as well as when the player hits the jackpot. You can design any interface you like. We have created an interface as shown below:
The most important part of the program is the spin procedure, the code is as follows:
The three random variables a, b and c will be randomly assigned the values 1, 2 and 3 using the RND function. Based on these three random numbers, three different pictures will be loaded into the three image boxes randomly using the LoadPicture method. Animated effects are created by putting the above procedure under the control of Timer1, which will call the spin procedure after every interval until it fulfills a certain condition. Sounds are also added using the Microsoft Multimedia Control to make the game more realistic and interesting. The amount won is controlled by the If….Then statements
It is important that you define the correct path for the LoadPicture method, otherwise the program will not be able to run. For example, our path is C:\VB program\Images\grape.gif, you need to create the necessary folders and have the necessary image file if you wish to copy the program directly. If you place the image file in a differently folder, you need to modify the path accordingly. For example, if your image file is in D:\VB program\Images\grape.gif, then you need to modify the LoadPicture method to LoadPicture("D:\VB program\Images\grape.gif").
