class App extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
        this.state = {duration: 4000, slot1: 1234, slot2: 'hello', slot3: '2351'};

    componentDidMount() {
        setTimeout(() => this.setState({duration: 1000, slot1: '4321', slot2: 'world', slot3: '1234'}), 5000);
        setTimeout(() => this.setState({duration: 4000, slot1: '1234', slot2: 'hello', slot3: '2351'}), 7000);
        setTimeout(() => this.refs.slot.spinTo('prize'), 12000);
    render() {
        const symbols = ['๐Ÿ', '๐ŸŽ', '๐Ÿ', '๐ŸŠ', '๐Ÿ‹', '๐ŸŒ']; // can't use emojies in SlotMachine because some of them are comprised of 2 chars
        return (
            <View style={{flex: 1, justifyContent: 'center', alignItems: 'center'}}>
                <View style={{height: 200, justifyContent: 'space-between', alignItems: 'center'}}>
                    <SlotMachine text={this.state.slot1} duration={this.state.duration} />
                        width={45} duration={this.state.duration}
                    <SlotMachine text={this.state.slot3} range="012345" renderContent={c => <Text style={{fontSize: 25}}>{symbols[c]}</Text>} duration={this.state.duration} />
