The Reel Life: Closing time edition

13 March 2019

Two people in Tempe, Arizona were arrested last week for doing a couple of shots at a bar.

You might be wondering: Uh, isn't that perfectly legal? Were they underage? Did Arizona reinstate Prohibition without telling anyone?

Fortunately, Arizona does not have Prohibition. What it does have is a concept called "operating hours," which means at some point the bars close.

The two arrestees, a man and a woman, either did not understand or did not consider themselves bound by such rules. They broke into the Blasted Barley—which, by the way, is an awesome name for a bar—poured themselves some drinks, and, according to the police report, tried to pay for them but were mysteriously unable to find anyone to take their money.

The police claim they found about $89 worth of empty alcohol bottles in one of the thieves' backpacks. The police did not explain whether they meant $89 for the bar to buy it from the supplier or $89 for customers to buy it from the bar, which would be several bottles' worth of difference.

Get in the fast lane, Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!

A week-long slots tournament awarding $2000 in prizes starts Monday at Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes. From 11-16 March, players will earn tournament points playing four popular slots from Betsoft: Reels of Wealth, Stampede, Tiger's Claw and Dragon Kings. The player with the most points wins $400.

“Tournaments are a win-win,” noted Intertops Poker’s casino manager. “There’s nothing like having a good time playing slots and then get a tournament prize on top of your winnings!”

Slots players earn one point for every spin (min. fifty cents) on any of the four featured tournament games. On 16 March, the 16 players with the most points will split $2,000 in prize money. (Prizes must be rolled over at least once in order to be withdrawn.)

After every winning spin, Reels of Wealth awards a re-spin with wins multiplied up to 3X.

“Reels of Wealth is one of our most popular games, so we often feature it in tournaments,” said the casino manager. “I think surrounding themselves with all the luxurious stuff you can buy if you’re rich inspires players to win!”

Stampede is one of Betsoft’s most beautifully illustrated games. It has some great features that have led to lots of big payouts. It’s a 1,024-Ways-to-Win game so all winning combinations, no matter what line they’re on, pay out. Wilds can multiply wins up to 3X during the free spins bonus round triggered by Scatters.

Chinese myths come roaring to life in Dragon Kings as four dragons use their unique powers to protect ancient China’s seas. The king of the dragons appears only on the centre reel, doubling wins and opening the door to four tiered jackpots.

Tiger’s Claw is a 3-4-5-4-3 slot. Extra symbols on the middle reels creates extra chances for winning combinations. When a Tiger’s Claw holding a glowing orb appears on each reel, up to 96 free spins are triggered. Free spins can be re-triggered for a total of up to 240 free spins.

Players all over the world enjoy the busy poker rooms at Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Casino as well as the large selection of slots and table games in their casino section.
