The Reel Life: Nightmare before Christmas edition
7 Dec 2017
A 20-year-old student at the University of Alabama did a very, very silly thing last week: She posted a picture of herself in a Christmas tree costume, and said that if it got 1,000 retweets, she'd wear the costume to class for the rest of the semester.
At last count, the tweet has slightly more than 31,000 retweets. Further photos of the student looking embarrassed while wearing the Christmas tree costume in class have also been shared widely.
It is, truly, the most wonderful time of the year. Remember not to ruin it for yourself by making any ill-advised bets with the internet.
Get in the fast lane, Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!
It's a winter wonderland at Intertops Casino Classic this month as players compete with each other for top prizes during the $240,000 Winter Winnings casino bonus contest. Every week until 29 January, 300 frequent players will win bonuses up to $500 each, and many more will get bonuses in random draws that even occasional players can win.
Intertops Casino players automatically earn points when they play any of the casino's slots and table games on their desktop or laptop computers or in the mobile casino for smartphones or tablets. A live scoreboard shows everyone's current points ranking.
"Competition between players can get pretty intense, especially over the weekend," said Intertops' casino manager. "If you can move up a few spots on the scoreboard, it can make quite a difference to the bonus you get on Monday!"
Those that make it to the top 20 each week will be entered in a final draw for a $1,000 cash prize. There are no wagering requirements for this prize, so it can be withdrawn any time.
Christmas slots like the brand new Swindle All The Way will be popular during the holiday season. And later this month, Asgard, Realtime Gaming's epic new Viking-themed slot with four bonus features, will make its debut.
Swindle All The Way is a 25-payline slot featuring two comical burglars with plans to steal presents from under the Christmas tree. It also has two progressive jackpots that can be randomly won after any spin. Three or more scatters trigger a bonus game where players can win up to 60 free spins with up to 33x prize multipliers if they can find the robbers hiding on each reel. Other Christmas classics at Intertops include Naughty or Nice?, Santastic! and the Santa vs Rudolph trilogy (Rudolph's Revenge, Santa Strikes Back and Return of the Rudolph).
Asgard is an all ways pay game with Golden Wilds that double payouts. Three or more bonus symbols trigger a choice of up to four features that award up to 30 free spins with prize multipliers, extra wilds or "morphing" symbols. The Thunderbolt Feature, which turns up to five reels wild, can be triggered at any time.
Winter Winnings contest details and current scoreboard rankings are available at the Intertops Casino Classic website.
