The Reel Life: D.A.R.E. and DUIs edition

11 August 2011

D.A.R.E. is an educational program that seeks to prevent drug and underage alcohol use by children. The Reel Life remembers our D.A.R.E. officer, and we’re pretty sure he never got a DUI.

According to TV station WAVE, a police officer in Seymour, Ind. was arrested last week and charged with DUI after he swiped a parked car and then hit a tree in his pickup truck.

A police officer getting a DUI is a newsworthy story, but it’s not a Reel Life story. What makes this story Reel Life approved is what Officer John Newcomb was towing behind his pickup truck: A trailer that said D.A.R.E.

Newcomb is a “School Resource Officer” in Seymour. According to the Seymour Police Department website, he is “responsible for seven schools, acting as a mentor and providing students with a role model.”

To top this story off, Newcomb claimed his dog, which was in the truck with him, was a distraction and actually caused the crash.

The Reel Life has blamed the dog on many things, including tough sessions on the online slots. But blaming the dog on a DUI is definitely a first.

Wake up and smell the flowers

A $140,000 win last week at Win A Day Casino is making a wish come true for a player who’s always dreamed of having her own flower shop. Lizzie J won $140,461 on August 3rd playing the game-show-inspired Win A Fortune slot machine.

The jackpot winner, known as SWEETGAL on the site, says the first thing she’ll do is pay off her credit card debt and then she’ll make a personal dream come true.

“I’ve always dreamt of opening my own flower shop,” said the winner. “I never really thought it would be possible but now it is! I still can’t believe it!”

The win was announced yesterday on Win A Day’s Facebook page and congratulatory messages from fellow players have started pouring in: “Congrats” “Wow, I can only imagine…” “Way to go SWEETGAL!”

Win A Day’s progressive jackpot can be won on any of its slots games but this is the first major jackpot win on Win A Fortune, which only launched last fall. Win A Fortune brings the thrills of America’s favorite television game show to an exciting new one-of-a-kind slot machine. It has a nail-biting double-or-nothing Double Bonus Round and a Fortune Wheel that gives additional Wild symbols with multipliers.
