The Reel Life: Delayed gratification edition

12 July 2016

The Reel Life has a great respect for scientists. Conducting scientific research can be a very slow process, often taking years to get any usable results. Scientists must be very patient people. Like, really patient.

For example, in 2000, two scientists made a bet on whether the first person to live to 150 has already been born. This means the bet won't be settled until the year 2150.

We like a good sweat as much as anyone else, but this seems like a bit much.

The two scientists, both of whom work on anti-aging technology, each put $150 into an investment account that could yield as much as $500 million by the time 2150 rolls around. Of course, $500 million in 2150 dollars might be worth a lot less than $500 million in 2016 dollars. Or we could all be paying each other in virtual Pokémon by then; who knows.

Neither of the scientists themselves intends to be alive in 2150 to collect on the bet. The Reel Life feels that this largely defeats the point of betting, but perhaps that is why we are an online slot reviewer and they are scientists.

If you'd prefer not to wait almost twice the current average human lifespan to see if you've won a bet, can we suggest playing some online slots?

Get in the fast lane, Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!

Golden Euro Casino, a popular online casino designed especially for European players, is hosting a freeroll slots tournament this month that will award a €1,000 prize to the winner. The tournament is being played on the Loose Caboose slot from Realtime Gaming.

There is no registration fee for this freeroll tournament. To enter, players simply play the designated tournament game. The player who achieves the highest score by the end of the month will receive 1,000 euros in their account.

"With summer here, we're seeing more and more of our players playing our games on smartphones and tablets," said Golden Euro manager Robert Miller. "Wouldn't it be great to win a €1,000 slots tournament while you're enjoying summer at the park or beach or in your backyard?"

In Loose Caboose, three or more Caboose symbols trigger free spins that have a special Gold Bonus symbol which doubles winnings.

Scatters also trigger free spins in Golden Euro's newest game, the new all-ways-pay Carnival-themed Samba Sunset. In this game, though, three or more scatters during free spins triggers Super Games where more Wilds and more high-value symbols are added.

Until the end of the month, Golden Euro will double players' deposits (up to $100) and give them 10 free spins on the new game.

Golden Euro has hundreds of games from RTG. To play on their desktop or laptop computer, players can download software or enjoy instant-play games online. The most popular games are also available in the mobile casino for smartphones and tablets.
