The Reel Life

25 March 2010

The Reel Life likes to give back the community when not playing the online slots and one of the things we like to do is donate blood. But we haven't donated nearly as much blood as this Australian man.

According to the Daily Mail, 74-year-old James Harrison has been donating his extremely rare type of blood for 56 years and has saved the lives of more than two million babies. He is called the "man with the golden arm" because he has an antibody in his plasma that prevents babies from succumbing to Rhesus disease.

Harrison has been giving blood every few weeks since he was 18-years-old. He has donated 984 times.

Just after Harrison started donating it was discovered that he had a rare and life-saving antibody in his blood. His plasma could treat Rhesus disease and since then it has been given to hundreds of thousands of women. One of those women is his own daughter, who had to have an injection after the birth of her first son.

Harrison continued to donate blood after his wife Barbara passed away.

"I was back in hospital giving blood a week after Barbara passed away," he said to the Daily Mail. "It was sad but life marches on and we have to continue doing what we do. She's up there looking down, so I carry on."

The Reel Life salutes James Harrison. Now if only we could have "the golden arm" when it came to the slots.

Get in the fast lane grandma, the Bingo game is ready to roll!

Progress indeed

7 Sultans Casino was the place to be last week as the online casino saw two players hit big progressive slot jackpots.

Michael K., a player from Germany, won a staggering € 41,161 on the Fruit Fiesta three-reel progressive slot game.

Just a few days earlier, Richard B. took home a major payout of $26,177 on the Cash Splash five-reel progressive slot machine.

Who says progress is bad? Congratulations to both!
