Hi so as a long time player of Tower Unite, I think its time we had a talk about the Casino experiance as a whole.
What this post is not: “Asking for jackpot wins 100%”
(Let me just clear that up first before any comments about this, this is not my point!)
And this will lightly touch upon the post here: Wheel of Money Rigged? but with alot more added so bear with me.
So, as someone who has played Tower Unite over a couple years, We need a serious and open discussion about the Casino experiance as a whole. I know that I am not the only one who has felt that the user experiance has gone down with this. After speaking to several friends and other users, The general consensus is that things need to change or be removed.
When I first started Tower Unite, I used to love the casino, i still love the artwork and the machine ideas and the style. But The issues now are too big to ignore any longer (and i appreciate the hard work the devs do, you guys rock btw, this isnt a hate post.) The first issue is the hard topic of the “It’s Rigged!” complaints. Time after time this is the biggest comment & Complaint that i have seen and experianced. I understand that casinos need some rigging because we cant have non stop jackpot wins otherwise they would not be fun. To see the machines like W.O.M “jerk” to skip a high value or a jackpot to go to nothing is not a fun user experiance. To know that you can invest hours and hours into the game to see "nothing, 10, 20 or 50 all the time but never a 600, 750 or a jackpot is extremely boring and not fun as a user experiance. With triple diamonds, it used to feel like we had a fairly decent chance of winning a jackpot there but recently that hope has faded. Spin to win (with this being the only thing that has the odds displayed btw,) Feels lackluster, “Spin to win” just feels like “Spin to only get 200 potatoes, Hula dolls or cacti” As a user experiance it feels like you will never win a projector or a piano or the gold bars.
This in turn makes it feel like “what is the point in playing these games” Which is noticable as the users playing the casino i have witnessed has dropped (before the arcade, which is fantastic btw! came out.)
So i am not saying we need to be able to win the jackpots 24.7 100% of time. What i am saying is that the Casino needs an overhaul to make it feel fun. Lets not forget that Tower Unite is a game first and foremost and it should be fun. People generally don’t like to go somewhere and leave feeling like they’ve wasted time and effort. If i have 2-3 hours free, and if i am a player who needs units but has done all the golf maps, zombie massacre, etc; then surely the casino should feel fun.
And again this is not just my personal feelings, this is the feelings of a lot of the TU community that i have spoken and interacted with. I fear that if the casino is not overhauled soon, then it might aswell be removed from the game as it is no longer fun.
The last thing i will say though as i dont want this to seem like i am having a moan or a shout at the devs (who work bloody hard!) is that the improvements overall to Tower Unite have been amazing. So thank you so much for the hard work you put into the game. Please take this post as a chance to hear some feedback as a general statment of feelings and not a complaint, but more a chance for open dialogue between players and the devs as i really want the fun back in the Casino again.
