The Reel Life: Shoe bandit edition

27 March 2014

Christopher Miller is the real-life version of Herbert I. "Hi" McDunnough (Nicolas Cage) from the classic 1987 Coen brothers film "Raising Arizona."

Miller was arrested in 1999 for attempting to rob a shoe store in Toms River, N.J. and was sentenced to prison for 15 years. But he apparently did not learn his lesson. Just one day after being freed from jail, Miller went back to the exact same store and tried to rob it again. He is, of course, back behind bars.

"I have no idea what he was thinking," a local officer said. "We thought it was extremely strange ourselves that he would just rob the same store a second time so many years later."

The Reel Life doesn't think this is strange at all. Leaving "Raising Arizona" references aside, haven't our parents always taught us that, "if at first we don't succeed, try again." Miller is never going to become a successful shoe bandit if he decides to quit after failing just once. Shoe banditry takes practice and repetitions.

According to a woman who was working at the store, Miller seemed determined not to botch the holdup this time around, and was particularly aggressive with the workers in the store. She said Miller was "more menacing" this time around.

That's the spirit, Christopher Miller! Next time, go back in there, but with even more determination! They'll be waiting for you for 15-25 years (pending good behavior).

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

Innovative, full-service games provider Yggdrasil Gaming, has unveiled Robotnik, its third video slot game following the successful launch of Jokerizer and Winterberries, with a number of its partners going live with the title today.

Robotnik is a high variance video slot based on a modern interpretation of Strauss’s Blue Danube and Stanley Kubrick’s cult science fiction feature film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’.

The game centres around the 3D character Robotnik who suddenly appears on the screen to unleash ‘wilds’ and a host of intriguing bonus features. It is being heavily promoted in the Nordic market on television, print and online media.

Robotnik follows hot on the heels of high-roller slot games Jokerizer and Winterberries, the first two titles in Yggdrasil’s growing casino portfolio.

Yggdrasil Gaming, that specialises in slots and lottery games as well as pooled progressive jackpots, has recently signed content deals with Unibet Casino & Games, Video Slots, Mr Green, Leo Vegas and Vera & John Casinoin order to provide them with its full suite of 25 ground-breaking games as well as its rapidly expanding roadmap of new offerings.

Fredrik Elmqvist, founder and CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “Our casino portfolio is growing rapidly and we intend to step up the pace even more between now and the end of the year. The appetite for Jokerizer, Winterberries and now Robotnik has been phenomenal and we’re very grateful to our partners for embracing and promoting them.

“We’re a fast-moving and highly agile business and have a strong pipeline of new casino content that will be available to the market very soon. We can’t wait to show you,” Elmqvist added.
