This is just the way your PC / Laptop displays things, the actual reel layout (when symbols display fully stopped) is a true reflection of possible hits, line wins, scatters etc.
What you/we see scrolling past is not a true reflection of reel bands.
Another example of this quickly is DoA, on the 5th reel especially you can see 2 scatters right next to each other as you start/stop the reels, something you'll never see when the end result is shown via the reel strips.
Hope this makes sense lol.
It makes and in another it doesn't. That's why I bring it up. I used to download and play slot emulators and all the reels bands would virtualy spin and be visiual in true reflection to the reels bands.
