AbstractThe intensity and enjoyment of a gaming device with a rotary body structure containing one or more symbol-carrying rotary reels is enhanced by selectively highlighting special symbols on the rotary reels in unique ways. The selective highlighting of these special symbols is achieved in ways including the use of phosphorescent, fluorescent, or otherwise luminescent symbols, the use of stereoscopically processed symbols to achieve three-dimensional effects, the use of stereoscopic symbols to achieve animation effects, the use of selective backlighting for the special symbols, and the use of special control means for the selective backlighting of the symbols.
