The Reel Life: Space vodka edition22 February 2017
In light of the developing commercialization of space flight, some of us have gone and added "booze cruise 'round the moon" to our list of things we're going to do when we hit that really massive jackpot.
Unfortunately, the BBC has brought it to our attention that alcohol is banned on all space flights, and is likely to stay banned, probably forever.
The BBC article says that this is not because drinking in space gets you drunk faster, because it doesn't, nor is it because NASA just hates fun, although we're not sure we believe them.
The official story is apparently that alcoholic compounds can mess with the water processing systems used on spacecraft, which is boring enough that it's probably true.
In 2007, reports were made at NASA that some astronauts had shown up to launch having crammed in a last drink or five during their last hours on terra firma, but these reports were not substantiated.
Back in the '60s, Russian cosmonauts operated under less strict rules than NASA's astronauts, and brought vodka into space in little tubes like toothpaste.
This gives us an idea, and so, until we hit our massive jackpot and booze is un-banned in space, we're just going to play online slots and drink Russian Standard out of little tubes so that we feel like astronauts.
Get in the fast lane, Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!
Intertops Casino, one of the world's very first online casinos, has just re-launched its website with a modern new look and an all new instant play casino. Its download casino, offering hundreds of real money online casino games from Realtime Gaming, has also been given the same new look.
The new instant play online casino requires no download or installation, so players can enjoy their favorite games in seconds. There are around 90 of the newest and best slots from RTG, as well as dozens of video poker games and a complete selection of table games like roulette, blackjack, pai gow and baccarat.
The new website makes it easier to browse the growing game selection and to keep track of current bonus offers, like the introductory bonus for the new Megaquarium slot. Megaquarium is a coral-reef themed game with a series of bonus games that culminate in a Mega Bonus game with lots of extra wilds and random prizes of 5x to 500x the triggering bet. Until 28 February, players can claim an introductory deposit bonus up to $900 that includes up to 77 free spins on the new game.
"I've been playing at Intertops Casino for many years," said one player. "When they told us they were changing things I thought, oh dear, I won't be able to find anything now. But I was wrong — the new website looks great and everything is actually easier to find now!"
Players visiting Intertops' new website on a smartphone or tablet are automatically re-directed to the special casino lobby for mobile devices. Mobile casino games, with their big buttons, are designed especially for the smaller screens of smartphones and tablets.
To celebrate the re-launch of its website and the re-design of its casino, Intertops Casino is doubling a deposit, up to $500, until the end of this month.
