The Reel Life: Lottery movie ticket edition

8 March 2018

Alabama gubernatorial candidate James Fields has a novel idea for what to do with the state's lottery revenues: He wants to send pre-kindergarten kids and their parents to the movies, because, he says, Alabama needs more family time.

Now, our politics here at The Reel Life (and at Casino City more broadly) are reasonably simple: We're in favor of regulated, legalized gambling. We're definitely not in favor of blanket prohibitions, and we're not really in favor of completely unregulated gambling either, because we think customers should have some protections from and recourse against scammers. And we generally try not to bore our readers too much with our editors' political views on non-gambling-related matters, a task that has admittedly gotten a bit harder upon the election of the former Casino King of Atlantic City to the Presidency of the United States.

But… we're really not sure what to make of this proposal. It seems nice? But also, it seems like a giant giveaway to the movie industry, and should the state really be doing that? Also you're not supposed to actually talk to your family members while the movie is playing, which is why some of us actually don't go to the movies with our parents anymore, ahem.

We're admitted really curious to see more details of how this proposal might work, like who gets to decide which movies qualify and who would be eligible for the subsidy, even though it's quite unlikely the proposal will ever become reality. For one, Fields is running as a Democrat, and — the surprise election of Doug Jones notwithstanding — Alabama is a heavily Republican state, so Fields is a longshot to win. For another, Alabama politics are bananas on a level that makes New Jersey look clean — the current governor, Kay Ivey, became governor in 2017 after former Governor Robert Bentley resigned amid multiple felony accusations that seemed to be making their way toward impeachment — so even if Fields wins, who knows what sort of interesting shenanigans could crop up to derail things?

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

Golden Euro Casino, a deluxe online casino catering to European players, is celebrating St. Patrick's Day by doubling deposits and by giving free spins on Lucky 6, its favorite Irish slot game. It's also giving players €5 to play on Treasure Tree, its most popular scratch game.

"Isn't it funny how we all turn a little Irish at this time of the year?!" said Golden Euro manager Adrian Berger. "Suddenly everyone's favorite color is green!"

As a tribute to the luck o' the Irish, Golden Euro will double players' deposits beginning Monday.

Getting them in order and on one line can add extra grouped wilds, turn Pot of Gold symbols wild and multiply prizes up to 5x.

In addition to online slots and table games, Golden Euro Casino also has a selection of scratch card games. This weekend, the casino is giving players a €5 freebie to try the Treasure Tree scratch game.

Treasure Tree is a colorfully animated game where players click on bags of money hanging from the Treasure Tree's branches to reveal win multipliers. They can win up to 25x the triggering bet or up to 25 free games when three of a kind are found. Prizes are tripled during free games.
