The Reel Life

21 August 2008

In Legally Blonde, Reese Witherspoon's character, Elle Woods, plays a Harvard law student, who, along with other law students, is helping her professor defend Brooke Taylor Windham, a famous fitness instructor. Elle is one of the few people that believe Brooke is innocent, and in defending her to the others that work on the case, she drops this piece of wisdom:

"Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't."

The Reel Life would like to believe that same sort of thing applies to playing the slot machine online. Playing the slots online is fun. Fun makes people happy. And happy people don't get into screaming matches and moon people.

OK. So most of you didn't see that last part coming. But it really happened.

Fort Hays State University debate coach Bill Shanahan got into ugly screaming match with University of Pittsburgh debate coach Shanara Reid-Brinkley at the Cross Examination Debate Association (CEDA) event this year. The two yelled and screamed profanities at each other, and at one point, Shanahan mooned Reid-Brinkley. If you don't believe us, check out the video below.

But remember, if these folks had known how much fun playing online slots were, this might have never happened.

Banker loses his shirt

Graham T won £152,657 when he recently hit Jackpotjoy's Deal or No Deal progressive jackpot.

"I'm still a bit shocked," Graham said. "It's the kind of thing you think happens to everyone else. I think the best word for it is disbelief."

It didn't take long for him to share the news though. "I let my wife know first, and she had to go to work, stunned and dazed.

"First plan of action is to reduce the mortgage, that'll make a real difference. I think we'll spend some of it, give some away and save the rest. My favourite game was Double Bubble but not anymore. Nothing can beat Deal or No Deal now."

Slotland player hits $168,947 jackpot

Historically, Slotland's progressive jackpot is hit fairly regularly – about once every six weeks – for just over $100,000. But lately, it's been taking a little longer to be hit, and that's made for some big winners.

This week, MRSSMITHS hit Slotland's progressive jackpot for $168,947 while playing the Booster slot machine.

In March, a lucky Canadian player won $195,083 in Slotland's biggest progressive jackpot victory. He was playing Treasure Box, one of the most popular slot machines on the site.
