Posted by on Apr 1, 2015 in Stuff | 0 comments

Movie themed slots are nothing new in the online gaming industry. Software companies and casinos alike are constantly trying to innovate by making partnerships with famous movie / video game companies for exclusive rights to famous characters and brands. These partnerships are great for players as well since they will get to enjoy playing their favorite slots within a well defined and well beloved movie universe.

UCF Jedi Knight vs Westboro Baptist Church

Posted by on Jul 30, 2014 in Stuff | 0 comments

Here is a true Jedi doing good in the world.

Emanuel last week...
