A Woman Won £1 185.25 After Making Her First Deposit At Platinum Play Bingo

Platinum Play Bingo has added yet another big winner to its growing list of happy high-rollers: xsannex won £1 185.25 after making her first deposit.

Platinum Play Bingo has recently seen a large number of Progressive Jackpots being won in their three 90 ball bingo rooms. The most recent win came just yesterday when xsannex won the Progressive Jackpot in the Friendship Room in just 42 calls on lucky ball number 20.

This is what she had to say about her unexpected win: “… I am so happy to win this PJP. Now I can pay some of my debt, and there will still be left over for a little fun. I am a very new user to this site… and will enjoy playing bingo at Platinum Play Bingo.”

The most astonishing part is that xsannex had registered on Platinum Play Bingo over a year ago. However, she decided to make her first deposit after she received a special offer via email. Moments later, whilst playing a scheduled PJP game in the Friendship Room she hit the Progressive and got to bank a massive £1 185.25.

Hotels.com sponsors The Hotel Inspector on Five

Hotels.com, the leading accommodation website, has taken up the sponsorship of seven episodes of Five’s eight programme series, The Hotel Inspector, which shows on Mondays at 9pm on Five. The goal of the campaign is to help promote the Hotels.com’ promise to help its customers “wake up happy” and drive brand awareness amongst the show’s ABC1, travel and internet-literate audience.

The current series of the show follows the award-winning hotelier Alex Polizzi, and granddaughter of Lord Forte, as she visits failing hotels and bed and breakfast establishments around the country and by giving advice and suggestions tries to get their owners to reform them into profitable ventures.

The new spots will build on Hotels.com’s existing advertising creative, made by agency Lambie Nairn, which aims to bring the brand to life for travellers. The consumer benefit of the fact that Hotels.com has hundreds of its own ‘hotel inspectors’ who personally review hotels for the website will be brought to life in the campaign – making it the only destination for travellers in search of the perfect room, whatever the break.

The spots will feature a range of destination references as Hotels.com helps inspire those looking for summer sun hotels.

Matt Walls, Marketing Director at Hotels.com, said: “As well as offering exposure to a core audience interested in travel, The Hotel Inspector is exactly the right fit for us. We have one of the largest teams of hotel inspectors in the industry who personally review and recommend rooms for our customers, so the association with the programme is spot on.”

About Hotels.com
As part of the Expedia group which operates in all major markets, Hotels.com offers more than 100,000 quality hotels, B&Bs and serviced apartments worldwide including New York hotelsRome hotelsEdinburgh hotels and London hotels.

Art Exhibition “CONTROL” at SOMArts Cultural Center, San Francisco

The South Bay Area and Peninsula Chapters of the Women’s Caucus for Art in conjunction with SOMArts Cultural Center present an exhibition titled “CONTROL”, curated by Karen Gutfreund, displaying the work of California women artists. The exhibition will be held August 6 – 29, 2009 at SOMArts Cultural Center, San Francisco. The opening reception and opportunity to meet the artists will be held at SOMArts on Thursday, August 6 f r o m 6 – 8 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

“CONTROL” includes artwork by 79 emerging and professional women artists. The 94 works on display cover a broad range of media, including painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and video installation. Organized around the theme of control (or lack of it), the show explores the artists interpretation of all methods of control: internal, external, positive, negative, over life events and over technology, empowering or dehumanizing, politically correct – or not.

This collection of work addresses many issues, including statements on war, politics, ethnicity, gender identity and stereotypes, domestic violence, religion, money and the environment. ”Regardless of the artist’s media, their individual work speaks to the uniqueness and strength of their message on “Control” says Karen Gutfreund, curator.

The exhibition was organized by the South Bay Area and Peninsula chapters of Women’s Caucus for Art, a national organization. The work was juried by members of Guerrilla Girls West, a group of women art activists in gorilla masks, who have been protesting the lack of inclusion for women artists in museum and gallery collections since 1987. The Guerrilla Girls West stated they “chose the work based on artistic quality, perceived relevance to the theme of Control, and relevance as seen by typical exhibition visitors”.

About the Women’s Caucus for Art
Founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA), WCA is a national member organization unique in its multi-disciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students /educators, and museum professionals. The mission of the Women’s Caucus for Art is to expand opportunities and recognition for women in the arts.

WCA is committed to education about the contributions of women, opportunities for the exhibition of women’s work, publication of women’s writing about art, inclusion of women in the history of art, professional equity for all, and respect for all individuals without discrimination and support for legislation relevant to our goals. For more information visit: www.nationalwca.org.

About SOMArts Cultural Center
The mission of SOMArts Cultural Center is to promote and nurture art on the community level and foster an appreciation of and respect for all cultures. Established as a nonprofit in 1979, SOMArts was born f r o m the passionate activism of the Neighborhood Arts Movement—a trailblazing initiative in San Francisco that demanded art for and by the people, outside the circles of high culture, and supported financially by the city. In the early years of Neighborhood Arts, the city’s program provided performance space and much-needed technical support such as sound, lighting and poster printing to arts and cultural groups who did not have access elsewhere. For more information visit: www.somarts.org.

About the Guerilla Girls West
Inspired by the Guerrilla Girls in NYC (founded in 1985), the Guerrilla Girls West was founded in 1987. The independent Northern California group, all professional artists and/or art educators, took the name Guerrilla Girls West, continue to wear the gorilla masks for public appearances, and maintain tight security. For several years, when the Chronicle’s Pink Section printed all the calendar listings, artists’ names were tallied and percentages of male and female artists were calculated. The ten best and ten worst galleries (in terms of gender balance) were published and awards (little wind-up gorillas for the good guys, ripe bananas for the bad guys) were personally delivered by a pair in masks.

More information on CONTROL:
The curatorial committee endeavored to create a pertinent and timely exhibition for California women artists with a theme that would stimulate the artists and viewers alike into meaningful dialogue. Control indicates power and strength for some and alternatively a sense of vulnerability and helplessness for others. The work in this exhibition reflects a myriad of interpretations on aspects of control and its significance to the artist.

What does one control? What controls the individual in life, body, temperament, destiny, society, religion, family and addictions/desires? What does a sense of power over ones environment look like and what comes to mind if that power or control is stripped away? How have political, social or economic controls shaped ones life and the lives of others? In what ways does the media and popular culture dictate and control? And how much control does one have to exert or to yield in order to survive?

The artists examine the juxtaposition of internal and external controls placed on our bodies, our minds, our lives and thus how we react and manifest these controls into our psyche and ultimately our art. “Control” talks about these crucial issues in the world and mirrors each artist’s individual experience. In this context, the message matters as much as the medium.

The response to the call for art was extraordinary! We received entries f r o m 171 artists with up to three works each. The work and statements were well thought out, personal and very moving; to me each was a gift that alternatively made me laugh and made me cry. The emotional honesty and strength of the works on themes of gender roles, consumerism, war, ethnicity, religion, body image, political and cultural power, motherhood, domestic abuse and family life, sexual identity and mind control are a testimony to the creative spirit of these artists, says Karen Gutfreund, Curator.

32Red Online Casino launches €1.3 Million Grand Slam of Slots

32Red, the award-winning online casino, has announced that it will be running its biggest ever online slots tournament this summer. The Grand Slam of Slots boasts a total prize pool of €1.3 million and a top prize of €1,000,000.

€1.3 Million Grand Slam of Slots

Slot tournaments first came to online casinos in 2008 as an entirely new way of playing online slots and have been popular ever since. Players join a tournament based on one of three online slot games which are available and play the slots as normal. However, instead of cash being awarded from certain combinations on the reels, players receive the equivalent payouts in points instead. The sum of these points establishes their position on a leader board which, when the slot tournament is finished, determines the amount of the prizepool the player receives. The higher up the leaderboard players finish the greater the prize. In this case, players in the Grand Slam of Slots battle for €1.3 million and can win €1 million for finishing in the top position.

Head of Marketing for 32Red, Mark Quayle, said, “The Grand Slam of Slots is one of the biggest gaming events we’ve ever been part of and is a great chance for players to experience these great games, the amazing Tomb Raider* online slot and become the first slot tournament millionaire in the process.”

He added, “There are 481 winning places in addition to the massive €1,000,000 top spot, where players can win runner-up prizes worth up to €50,000. That means a ticket to the Grand Slam of Slots has a 20% chance of being a winner. In true 32Red style we’ve added 32 €1,000 bonus prizes that will keep the tournament exciting and competitive throughout the leaderboard and not just at the top. Players can even pickup a €1,000 prize in 8328th place.”

Tickets to Grand Slam of Slots are not available to buy; instead 32Red will be offering competitions, leaderboards and more to allow players to secure their seat. The final will take place over 9 days between Friday the 23rd October and Monday November 2nd which allows for an unlimited number of rebuys. Quayle pointed out, “Rebuys are going to be pivotal to anyone serious about hitting one of the bigger prizes. The opportunity for more credit and time will boost leaderboard scores and could be the difference between finishing below the payment threshold or in the money. For those wanting to practice their slot tournament skills, 32Red runs daily tournaments and even free slot tournaments from inside their online casino.”

Lottery.co.uk Launches Online Games

Lottery.co.uk, the UK’s most popular independent lottery website, has announced the launch of a new range of games that give players the chance to have fun and win big money at the same time. With massive cash jackpots worth over £1,000,000 up for grabs, the new instant win games at Lottery.co.uk are sure to be a hit.

All of the games have been created by leading online gaming company CryptoLogic and feature some of the most impressive graphics, animations and sound effects ever seen in online gambling games. Even better, Lottery.co.uk allows visitors to try the online games for free, so players can see for themselves what all the fuss is about without risking a penny of their own money.

The range of games that can be found at Lottery.co.uk includes traditional casino games such as roulette and blackjack, as well as scores of jackpot slots to try, along with three games which have become particularly widespread in the online gaming world:

Bejeweled is technically a slot machine, but it doesn’t look like one at all. Instead it looks just like the Bejeweled puzzle game on which it is based. The idea is to match different coloured jewels to win prizes – the more jewels a player matches, the more they can win.

Jenga is another slots game that is based on the ever popular non-gambling game.

Cubis completes a trilogy of 3D puzzle games, and takes place on three boards positioned horizontally and vertically to create a ‘corner’. Each board consists of 25 squares in different colours. When players spin the ‘reels’, the Cubis blocks are refreshed and prizes are won by getting combinations of matching squares. Cubis blocks with special powers make the game even more interesting.

These three games are just the tip of the iceberg, and if players explore the games at Lottery.co.uk they are sure to find at least a handful of titles that appeal to them. Whether it’s a slots game based on a Marvel Comics character such as The Incredible Hulk, or a game with a seven figure progressive jackpot, the games on offer will keep visitors entertained – and on the edge of their seat – for hours.

“We wanted to give our visitors some new opportunities to win potentially life-changing sums of money and have fun at the same time,” said Sam Weren, spokesman for Lottery.co.uk. “There are more than 50 games available right now, and even more will be added in the future. We can’t wait to congratulate our first big winner.”

The Ultimate Blackjack Experience At Vegas Palms Online Casino

Vegas Palms Online Casino has various forms of Blackjack available to players. They cater to every blackjack player’s taste in Blackjack.

Vegas Palms Online Casino gives novice players a chance to practice first, before real money comes in to play. Players have the option of registering a guest account where no money is exchanged, but they still get the opportunity to try out all the games the casino has to offer.

vegaspalms

Online blackjack is one of the easiest casino games to learn. The only skill needed in order to play blackjack, is the ability to add. Players need to reach the closest hand to 21, without exceeding that total and still obtaining a higher amount than the dealer. When a player exceeds 21, it’s called a “bust”. This is bad for players because their chips will begin to disappear quickly.

This card game is fast paced and the player is playing alone against the dealer. There is no strategy on the part of the dealer, so a novice player and experienced player are playing with the same odds.

There are no formal rules for blackjack. Depending on the casino, the rules vary. However, players will always be dealt two cards. Players will then have to decide if they want more cards, depending on the dealer’s cards.

Players looking for the ultimate Blackjack experience, seem to prefer playing at Vegas Palms Online Casino.

About Vegas Palms:
Experience all the live riveting Vegas action right from the comfort of home with Vegas Palms Online Casino. Online gaming enthusiasts are given the opportunity to out both classic casino games as well as captivating newer ones, all with advanced graphics. Players will remain enthralled for many captivating hours of superb gaming play, as they are guaranteed online gaming in the safest and most secure gaming environment ever, while capturing all the exclusive jackpots on offer.

Lottery.co.uk Announces Launch Of Euromillions Application

Lottery.co.uk, the UK’s most popular independent lottery website, has announced the launch of a free EuroMillions lottery application. The application, which can be used with the iPhone and iPod Touch devices, delivers a wealth of information that will prove useful to any EuroMillions player.

The EuroMillions lottery application can be downloaded for free directly f r o m iTunes and, as soon as it has been installed on an iPhone or iPod Touch device, users will be able to access a number of useful features, including a EuroMillions Results feed that is u p d a t e d within minutes of the EuroMillions draw every Friday night with all the information about the latest draw. It also includes the EuroMillions lottery numbers and a complete breakdown of the prize values that will be paid out.

Users with a EuroMillions lottery ticket for a previous draw that hasn’t been checked yet can utilise the Check My Ticket feature. All players have to do is enter the numbers as they appear on their ticket and then press the Check My Ticket button. They will then see how those numbers fared in previous draws. Not only could this help players to claim a prize that they didn’t know about, but it could also help users to decide whether or not they want to play those same numbers in the future.

Should the user decide that they want to change their EuroMillions numbers, the EuroMillions lottery app features a Random Ticket Generator. When the player has come across a set of numbers that they like, they can then visit the Euro Lotto site and purchase the tickets.

The EuroMillions lottery application also gives access to the results of every single EuroMillions draw that has taken place since the game was launched in 2004. To access those results, users can press the Results Archive button and they will then be able to see the results for last six months or for any of the previous years.

The fact that the EuroMillions lottery application for the iPhone and iPod Touch is being given away for free to anyone who chooses to download it might surprise some, but Lottery.co.uk spokesman Sam Werren commented that the site is proud to be doing just that: “Lottery.co.uk is proud of being at the cutting edge in the lottery industry, and our main concern is to get the latest lottery results into the hands of as many people as possible,” Sam explained. “Making this genuinely useful application freely available to iPhone and iPod touch users will help us to achieve that goal – and help EuroMillions players check their tickets within minutes of the draw taking place.”
