SpinnerGame has to implement these three public methods:

void keyPressed(KeyEvent e)
          Invoked when a key has been pressed.
 void keyReleased(KeyEvent e)
          Invoked when a key has been released.
 void keyTyped(KeyEvent e)
          Invoked when a key has been typed.

Or you could create an inner class that extends KeyAdapter.

KeyAdapter is a convenience class that has "default" implementations of the key... methods.

CEHJ is right, but I just want to give you some more detail.

keyPressed is invoked when a key is pressed down.
keyReleased is invoked when a pressed key is let up.
keyTyped is invoked after a key has been pressed and released.

Only reason I went into more detail is because I've seen a lot of people rack their brains over the differences.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

Split between CEHJ, jimmack, zechariahs and InNoCenT_Ch1ld
