The Reel Life

24 Jun 2009

Every now and then The Reel Life needs some alone time. Playing the online slots can be quite stressful, so sometimes we go out and take a walk. Or maybe play golf. But when we go out, we make sure we tell someone where we'll be and what time we expect to be home. If we plan on crossing an international border, we're damn sure we're telling someone about it. The governor of South Carolina might need a refresher course in these basic manners.

In a story that gets stranger and stranger by the day, Gov. Mark Sanford went missing on June 18. His wife Jenny said she had not talked to her husband when he left and did not know where he went.

Sanford's staff reported on June 22 that the governor was hiking along the Appalachian Trail. Suspicions on this story grew when Sanford's SUV was spotted at Columbia Metropolitan Airport.

Well, it turns out that Sanford didn't go hiking on the Appalachian Trail. In fact, he hadn't gone hiking anywhere. Instead, he went on an impromptu trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

According to The State, Sanford "said he decided at the last minute to go to the South American country to recharge after a difficult legislative session in which he battled with lawmakers over how to spend federal stimulus money."

Sanford said he had considered hiking on the Appalachian Trail, but decided to go in a completely opposite direction.

"But I said 'no' I wanted to do something exotic," Sanford said "...It's a great city."

The Reel Life realizes that sometimes you just need to get away. Just make sure that people know where you are going away to, especially if you are in charge of governing a state.

Sore throat leads to big payday

The Reel Life also learned this week that skipping Bible study can pay off financially. Slotland's newest slot machine produced their latest progressive jackpot winner when NYNYMAN won $169,923 playing the new Megaspin slot.

Having woken up with a sore throat, NYNYMAN had called in sick at work and had decided to take it easy that evening rather than go to his usual Bible study group. Although he has a few favorite games at, it was the new Megaspin that caught his attention as he sat down to play that night.

"When I spun 3 Wild Stars I started jumping out of my chair, thinking I'd hit the Big One. I was actually only halfway to winning the jackpot. Now I had to spin the Mega Reels and get 3 more stars. Impossible, I knew, but I was hoping for a nice multiplier on the Mega Reels, at least, to make that $150 win even larger."

"The first spin on the Mega Reels brought me a cherry, grapes and a star that gave me another chance to try to multiply my $150. Three more spins brought me three more losing combinations, but each time there was a star somewhere on the reels to buy me another chance."

"The next spin seemed to go in slow motion. I watched as the first reel stopped on a star and then the second reel stopped on another star. When third real also stopped on a star I realized I'd won $169,923 and I couldn't stop shaking."

The $169K win means NYNYMAN and his young bride won't have to worry about getting by on one income once their baby arrives next spring.

Congrats to NYNYMAN, and good luck with the baby!
