The Reel Life: The modern hobo edition

27 August 2015

Being a student these days is pretty expensive. The Reel Life should know -- we were in college not too long ago. (Spin It Up University. It's accredited, trust us).

So it only makes sense to try to save a bit on living expenses. That might mean living with several roommates, or not paying for cable, or limiting the amount of times you go out on the town.

But one German woman has taken "cost cutting" to an extreme -- and we totally dig it.

Leonie Muller, 23, pays £240 a month for a monthly season ticket on the train, and that counts as her rent payment. Yes, you read that correctly -- she lives on a train.

Every night, Muller, a student at Tubingen University, packs up all her belongings and takes them with her on the rails. She is a true modern day hobo, and a successful one at that.

"I really feel at home and I can visit so many more friends and cities," Muller told The Express. "It's like being on vacation all the time. I read, I write, I look out of the window and I meet nice people all the time. There's always something to do on trains."

If you think Muller sounds crazy, you're probably not alone. But in this economy, who could blame someone for thinking outside the box to save a little dough?

Now, Leonie, you should think about using that extra cash to play a few slots ...

The thrills of Las Vegas come to Slotland today as the unique online casino unveils its latest one of a kind game, the new Vegas Vibes slot. Bringing the bright lights of The Strip to computers and mobile devices around the world, Vegas Vibes is a glitzy five reel, twenty payline slot game with stars of The Strip like Elvis and Cher on its reels. Its bonus round awards up to 15 free games with a 3X bet multiplier.

To celebrate the debut of the new Vegas Vibes slot, Slotland is giving players a $25 freebie and up to 200% match bonuses this weekend.

To claim a $25 Freebie players simply enter bonus code “25FREEBIE” on the casino’s homepage. Bonus code VEGAS200 can be used to claim a 200% bonus (with 20X wagering requirement) and VEGAS100 doubles deposits with just a 10X wagering requirement. These bonus codes are valid August 21 – 24, 2015 only and must be entered before making a deposit.

During Vegas Vibes’ Free Spins, the wild symbol becomes an Expanding Wild covering its entire reel to create more winning combinations. Hitting five Elvis symbols with a max bet placed wins the casino’s progressive jackpot which has already climbed back to over $115,000 after a recent $149,625 win.

“This one’s somewhere between a penny slot and a premium game with special features, like Gods of Egypt,” said manager Michael Hilary. “Vegas Vibes has a low betting range, but unlike penny slots it’s tied to our big jackpot, and it has quite a generous bonus feature.”

Slotland now has 35 real money online slot games, all available only at Slotland and all compatible with most mobile devices.
