The Reel Life

11 June 2009

Admittedly, the Reel Life has hit some bad streaks while playing the slots. But we've never run into the kind of cold streak that has made us turn to a life of crime. And if we did, we're pretty sure we'd be better at it than these two recent clumsy criminals.

First we present 38-year-old Randall Walker and his partner in crime Jason Dietrich, 35. At first glance the two culprits seem to be pretty suave as they not only succeeded in robbing a Daytona Beach, Fla. Bank, but got away with the loot and made it to the getaway vehicle. Unfortunately, one of these two geniuses forgot to hit a gas station while planning the heist because the Jeep Cherokee they were driving ran out of gas not far from the bank. The two abandoned the car and fled the scene, but police used the registration to trace it back to Dietrich. The pair now face bank robbery charges and are being held on $50,000 bail.

Speaking of negligent bank robbers from Florida, it doesn't get much worse than the case of William Strickland. The 49-year-old decided the rob a Pensacola bank last week and thought it would be a good idea to prepare for the heist while standing in the bank's parking lot. Someone spotted him putting on a wig and a trench coat and alerted the bank manager. When Strickland walked into the bank and off duty policeman was waiting for him and wasted no time in putting him under his control. The best part is that once Strickland was apprehended he was found carrying a toy gun as a weapon.

Fast start for Intertops' Red Casino Just two weeks after Intertops opened the new Intertops Red Casino, Christopher T won a $200,090 jackpot playing the T-Rex slot machine. Known for their quick processing, Intertops Red Casino has already started paying the lucky winner.

Intertops recently launched its RED Casino on the RTG platform in order to continue serving its American players. The lucky winner started with $300 and had been playing on the T-Rex slot machine all evening until he was up more than $70,000. He didn't even win one of the many lucrative progressive jackpots, but played a regular slot game.

"I decided to take a break. But after a while I wanted to continue my winning streak and finally ended up with $200,090!" said the winner. "Maybe I should use some of my winnings to go to Washington and check out the dinosaurs at the Smithsonian!"
