The Reel Life

4 September 2008

Mark down the date, because it's a first. The Reel Life is speechless.

In addition to bringing you the very best in online slot news each week, we here at the Reel Life also try to inform our loyal readers of some of the more "off beat" news stories out there in this crazy world we live in. But this week's attempt at finding one of those stories ended up with us cringing behind our keyboard.

First, let's hear from the boorish perpetrator of this bewildering report. Here's what the 20-year-old U.S. resident from the good old state of Washington had to say when he was caught committing an act that landed him in front of a Snoho¬mish County Superior Court judge:

"Thank you for catching me. I need to stop and I can't do it alone…Once you start, it's hard to stop."

So what offense is this man talking about? Is it his problem with alcohol and/or drugs? Nope. Is it (gulp) playing online slots? Guess again. Is it eating a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos? No sir.

No, the unfortunate answer is (brace yourself) "flashing baristas at drive-through espresso stands." Now, that is one phrase we never in our (reel) life thought we'd ever be forced to type.

But just when you think we've hit an all-time Reel Life low with this story, guess again. It gets worse. According to the news report below, (brace yourself again) this sort of incident is not a first for Washington. It's a recurring trend:

If you're looking for a witty retort to this shocking development, don't waste your time. We're not even going to try and make some sort of wise comment. (You know, like asking whether or not these sickos tend to "froth" at the mouth when pulling off this despicable act).

Because, like we said, we're speechless.

Cheers to you!
We now go from an appalling story concerning one of our favorite beverages to a more pleasing report about another beverage we are quite fond of: beer.

As the annual 16 day festival of Oktoberfest approaches, an estimated six million people will descend upon the Bavarian city of Munich to celebrate and drink an incredible 1.2 million gallons of beer. 'Oktoberfestbiers' are the beers that have been served at the event since 1818, traditionally brewed in March and allowed to ferment slowly during the summer months.

With that in mind, the folks at are helping players get in the beer swilling spirit, providing some financial bonus along the way by releasing a new slot game called Quest for Beer. The 5-reel, 25-payline game has a maximum jackpot of 2,500 coins. Players can wager anything from $0.01 to $125 per spin, making it perfect for beginners and those more seasoned.

It's the game-play of Quest for Beer that really starts to entertain, with colorful graphics depicting kegs of beer and plenty of Viking paraphernalia. As for something you probably wouldn't find at Oktoberfest, the game also features an axe throwing bonus game to take you even closer to the huge jackpots.

With no deposit necessary, players can play for one hour on a selection of exciting casino games at Golden Tiger Casino with no financial risk, using no less than $1,500 of the casino's money to make as much back as possible. Any money that the player wins after the 60 minutes free play can be taken into the casino to try and hit another jackpot - one of which was sitting at a cool $3.7 million earlier this week.

Call it beginner's luck
Congratulations go out to Canadian Sylvia P who joined Joyland casino on Aug. 5 and then a mere three weeks later was a multi-millionaire. Upon signing up, Sylvia received the $25 free signup bonus and then deposited real money into her account. Last week she won a tidy $4,188,719.98 playing the Beach Life Progressive Jackpot.

"Now Sylvia knows the phrase 'Enjoy the winning feeling!' is not just a Joyland Casino slogan," said Mia Collins, Joyland Casino's Client Manager.
