The Reel Life: Gator wrestling edition

22 August 2017

Tim Williams, the dean of gator wrestling, is retiring from wrestling gators, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

"Dean of gator wrestling" is not a euphemism for anything; Williams' job for the past 27 years has been in public relations and entertainment at Gatorland, where he started off doing alligator-wrestling performances. He eventually moved into teaching younger alligator wrestlers, and developed most of Gatorland's entertainment department, which now runs several shows. Williams also works with outside media, such as television, to bring alligator-based edutainment to the masses.

Williams will still be around for special events at Gatorland, but plans to spend most of his retirement at his house on a little lake. The lake, he says, is also full of gators, because it's still in Florida. Guess the guy really, really likes alligators—we're pretty sure we'd be tired of them by now and would move somewhere completely lacking in gators, but to each his own.

Williams has no plans to wrestle these gators, because there's some stuff you just don't do for free.

This summer, Jackpot Capital Casino players are competing with each other for $280,000 in Picnic Hunter casino bonuses. They're discovering picnic baskets filled with goodies as they visit America's favorite National Parks. Exploring the Rocky Mountains, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone, 300 players are winning weekly bonuses up to $800 each.

Jackpot Capital Casino players earn frequent player points when they play any of the hundreds of games from Realtime Gaming. They're listed on a scoreboard according to their points ranking, and every week, the top 300 players get $30,000 in bonuses.

"We recently increased the maximum weekly bonus in contests like this to $800 each," said casino manager Oliver Smith. "Competition among players for the top bonuses has really heated up since then!"

Frequent players win top bonuses, but anyone can win random draws every Friday for another $5,000 in random weekly bonus draws.

The Picnic Hunters casino bonus event continues until 1 October 2017. Contest details and current points scoreboard rankings are available on the website.

Jackpot Capital Casino offers hundreds of slots and table games from Realtime Gaming (RTG). The glittering new Gemtopia slot with its two free spins bonus features arrived just yesterday.
