Paddy Power PLC released tips on How to Choose the Right Bingo Game Online

Picking the Right Bingo Game

As experienced bingo players know, there are many different versions of Bingo. Players often take the time to practice and try out each and every bingo game before they decide on their favorite, and it’s much better fun to experience some new versions rather than be conservative and stick to one game! Here’s some information and tips that might help you speed up the process and help you choose the bingo game that’s perfect for you.

Traditional Games

So if you like simple, basic bingo and want to stick to the classic and well-known games, then traditional bingo games are the choice for you. Traditional bingo games have simple patterns such as vertical lines, horizontal lines, diagonal lines, winners circle and four corners. These types of games keep it really simple, which is absolutely perfect for beginners.

Something New and Exciting

Do you want a new twist on the traditional game? If so, you should check out pattern bingo. Now pattern bingo has many of the features of traditional bingo games, but with one unique exception. Rather than making a basic five-in-a-row bingo win, players are required to complete complex patterns, such as “Hangman”, “A” or “Starburst”. These games can present a fun challenge for players who are looking for something new, and give experienced bingo players renewed interest in their game!

A Twist on a Favorite

Finally, if you’re looking for something entirely new when it comes to playing bingo, you might want to check out Deal or No Deal bingo. If you’re a fan of the television show, you will great fun playing in this unique, and very different online bingo game. Just like the famous television show, you will be assigned a box with a mystery prize. Throughout the game, you will receive calls from the mysterious banker who will make offers to buy the box from you. It’s up to you to decide whether to take the banker’s offer or to stick with your original choice containing the secret jackpot prize. The excitement builds as the boxes available to choose from begin to get smaller… and especially so if it starts to look like your first choice might contain the big jackpot!

The rise of the mobile casino and gaming on the go with casinos like Royal Vegas

Online casinos have filled the gap where land based casinos could not deliver, but now mobile casinos are taking over from online casinos offering players the chance to gamble on the go at any time from almost anywhere.

Times are changing and the internet has provided an entire online world where life has been simplified and everything can be found at the click of a button. There is almost no need for a person to leave their house now, with online shopping, online banking and any information needed at the tip of a person’s fingers. The same goes for online gambling, players no longer need to leave the comfort of their own home to enjoy a wide variety of top class casino games. But casinos have thought ahead and incase of that moment when players do leave their house they can take the casino with them in the form of a mobile casino app on their smartphone or tablet.

Players are able to find the same excitement and entertainment from mobile casino as they do online casinos and even land based casinos. Often players will migrate from an online casino to its own brand mobile casino as many online casinos do offer a mobile counterpart.

Players that are new to the casino will be able to claim a new player welcome bonus if they sign up online or via the mobile app, these mobile casino bonuses are also competitive and enticing. Royal Vegas mobile casino for instance offers players a $1,200 FREE welcome bonus split across three deposits, this is something a land based casino would never offer.

The games on offer are the same: table games, slot games and others, although online casinos seem to offer the most variety with some brands having over 500 casino games on offer. The ease of playing these games at home means people no longer have to get into their cars, drive to the casino and sit in a room full of strangers and smoke whilst mind numbingly spinning the reels. They can actually do other things while they play by setting the slot game to auto spin players can get chores done, watch their favorite television shows or even take a shower to hopefully return having won a huge jackpot. Then why would players use the mobile version if playing online is the way to go, how about when standing in a queue at the store, on a long train journey or waiting for the dentist these are some of the examples listed by players that enjoy this on the go style gaming.

The mobile casino is not a new concept and has been available to players for a few years, but what is new is that more and more people are now using this method for casino playing. Even people that are not huge casino enthusiast are playing the occasional game of mobile poker or roulette. A prime example from not so long ago is Sen. John McCain who was caught playing some mobile poker during a senate hearing, this just shows there is always time for a quick bet and the mobile casino has made it even easier.

Players interested in this ‘new’ version of gambling can sign up at their usual online casinos mobile version or even download an app from iTunes or GooglePlay. What is nice about getting the casino from an app store is that players are able to read reviews and learn from others experiences. For players that are interested in learning more about this on the go gaming they can visit www.royal-vegas.com and click on the mobile page.

Hello, My Name is Paul Smith

This November, London’s Design Museum presents an exhibition dedicated to the work of celebrated designer Paul Smith, reports LondonTown.com.

Although the Paul Smith brand is now known around the world, with stores in 16 countries, it sprang from the very modest beginnings of a 3mx3m Nottingham boutique, which Smith opened in 1970. A space of exactly the same dimensions kicks off this new exhibition, a message to aspiring designers and entrepreneurs that it is ok to start small.

From there it takes us on a tour of Smith’s mind, creativity and influences, encompassing the importance of his wife Pauline (who, he says, taught him everything), behind-the-scenes footage from this year’s Paris menswear shows, and iconic pieces from past Paul Smith collections.

One of the main talking points, however, will be the recreation of Smith’s Covent Garden office, known as ‘the stockroom of silly things’ on account of all the random objects that more than fill it (including several bicycles, cycling memorabilia, wind-up toys, china rabbits and an endless assortment of bizarre things that fans and famous friends regularly send him). Far more than just clutter, these are the things that give the designer inspiration, often popping up in his trademark style of what he calls ‘classic with a twist’.

The exhibition runs from 15 November until 9 March 2014 and is open from 10am-5.45pm daily.

The Design Museum is at Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD (www.designmuseum.org). Visitors can find, and book, cheap London hotels in the area via LondonTown.com.

Spencer – Poignant Memories of War

British artists Stanley Spencer’s poignant memories of war are leaving their permanent home at the National Trust’s Sandham Memorial Chapel to be exhibited at Somerset House next month. This exhibition marks the National Trust’s first major art exhibition in London for 18 years. Stanley Spencer: Heaven In A Hell Of War opens at Somerset House on 7th November and runs until 26th January 2014. Somerset House is a grand house located on the Thames by Waterloo Bridge. It is within a short distance of numerous London hotels and tourists looking for hotel rooms in London should visit LondonTown.com, which offers the latest and best deals on rooms in the capital.

The exhibition is part of many events scheduled to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. It will a series of large scale canvas panels from one of the most original and acclaimed British painters of the 20th century. They are usually on display at a chapel that was built to house the products of Spencer’s artistic genius. Spencer painted scenes of his own wartime experiences, as a hospital orderly in Bristol and as a soldier, also on the Salonika front.  His recollections, painted entirely from memory, focus on the domestic rather than combative and evoke everyday experience – washing lockers, inspecting kit, sorting laundry, scrubbing floors and taking tea – in which he found spiritual resonance and sustenance.

Peppered with personal and unexpected details, they combine the realism of everyday life with dreamlike visions drawn from his imagination. They describe the banal daily life that, to those from the battlefield, represented a ‘heaven in a hell of war.’ For Spencer, the menial became the miraculous; a form of reconciliation. The paintings, which took six years to create and were completed in 1932, are considered by many to be the artist’s finest achievement. As well as being one of Britain’s most important war artists, Spencer was a key figure in the development of figurative art in 20th century Britain and this exhibition provides an opportunity to look up close at his accomplished paintwork, sensitive use of colour, and masterly still-life.

The capital catches fire with Hunger Party Games

As London prepares to host the world premiere of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, eager fans can get in on the action with The Robin Collective’s brilliantly bonkers Hunger Party Games. LondonTown.com talks exclusively to the events and experimental food company’s founder Robin Fegan to find out what the nefarious Game Makers have in store.

Please can you tell us a bit more about the Hunger Party Games.

Robin Fegan: In celebration of the release of the second Hunger Games film, The Robin Collective and Indeedy Incorporated are holding a unique party at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club on 15 November. [The singer, presenter, DJ and] our own queen of the Capitol Jess Indeedy will reap contestants to fight in this year’s Hunger Party Games.

Will the contestants be shot at with arrows and forced to forage for their own food?

RF: Not exactly. Every ticket holder’s name will be put into the reaping. Throughout the night, people will be selected to compete in murderous parlour games, and cannon blasts will salute the fallen.

In between games, the victors will be celebrated and there will be dancing. Because this is a Quarter Quell, the last game of the night will see all the victors compete one last time.

Yikes, can you give us a hint as to what the murderous party games might involve?

The Game Makers are currently busy coming up with the most devious and evil games imaginable like Musical Killing Chairs and Pass the Parcel… of death!

How should contestants dress?

They are encouraged to wear outfits representative of their district. For example, glasses without lenses for the Shoreditch district, or obnoxious red trousers for the Chelsea districts. The reaping will be random so we won’t favour any districts.

What made you decide to hold a Hunger Games-themed event?

We’re big fans of the books and Katniss’ struggle against the Capitol is very much a metaphor for our struggle against non-Hunger Games-themed events.

How would you sum up the event in 10 words?

RF: ‘May the odds be ever in your favour,’ Caesar Flickerman.

The Hunger Party Games will be held at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club on 15 November from 9pm to 2am. Tickets are available from www.therobincollective.co.uk.
Competition: Win a set of tickets and the complete book trilogy

We are giving away two sets of tickets to the Hunger Party Games along with copies of the complete book trilogy. To enter, visit www.therobincollective.co.uk and then email us to let us know how many partying tracker jackers there are on the website.

The competition runs from 22nd October to 5th November 2013. Email your answer to competitions@londontown.com, along with your name and contact details. To be eligible to enter, you must be aged 18 years or over. Winners will be selected at random.

Discover Video Games Coaching Activity Through The First Global Esport Coaching Website

As the eSport phenomenon is growing all around the world, eGG-one school, the leading french video games coaching website, launches its international version.

To most people, video games coaching may sound like a strange idea. But in the world of competitive gaming, being advised by the best players has been a reality for quite some time now. eGG-one school was created to solve this need.

eSport is growing Recently, eSports has gone through tremendous growth, incurring a large increase in both viewership and prize money. Last Friday night, the #1 eSports games League of Legends held its World Championship Finals from the sold-out Staples Center in Los Angeles. Pro-gamers competed for more than $2 million in cash prizes in front of 12,000 fans. A record 5 million people from around the world were watching the previous edition.

eGG-one school, the first video games coaching website Knowing that players were already giving online private lessons for 10$-40$/hour, eGG-one school, launched the first video games coaching website. eGG-one school has decided to propose coaches from every eSports game on a fully automated platform. For students, the platform provides the easiest way to book a lesson with the most suited coach. For coaches, a fully automated payment and reservation system has been developed.

With 5200 hours of coaching bought last year, eGG-one school has had an unexpected success. More than 130 000$ have been paid to the coaches on mainly four eSport games (League of Legends, Starcraft 2, Counter-Strike: GO, and Street Fighter IV). For coaches, the platform allows them to share their passion, experience, knowledge and to secure a nice remuneration doing it. For students, private lessons are the best way to make quick progress and to become better gamers.

Since we were only active in France at first, we decided to launch our international version one month ago. We hope our project will allow gamers from all around the world to connect through this coaching activity!

For more informations, please discover our League of Legends coaching (http://school.egg-one.com/en/league-of-legends-lessons) section and our Starcraft 2 coaching (http://school.egg-one.com/en/starcraft-2-lessons) section.

Los Angeles Pastor Writes Self-Help Book!

Alja Thompson was an accomplished R&B recording artist with the 1980s band, General Caine, and has four albums to his credit with CBS Records. During the height of his career, Alja got involved with drugs, which devastated his life and ultimately led to his incarceration. It was a galvanizing reality. Totally defeated, he began a quest for truth and encountered the Christian-Judeo God along the way. It proved to be an event that completely changed his life.

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, young Alja learned to play music at the age of three. “In fact,” he explains, “I don’t remember life without music. Eventually, it became my life.” As a young musician he played the drums, marching in the world renowned Mardi Gras parades of New Orleans and also performed with jazz ensembles on the Mark Twain River Boat while sailing down the Mississippi River. In his late teens Alja’s music career advanced to Los Angeles, California, where he performed with James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, War, Rick James, and The Silvers, and finally became a member of the funk-rock group General Caine. Throughout his music career, Alja felt that something was missing; convinced that his life bore a much greater purpose.

Today, Alja Thompson is the founder and senior pastor of Sanctified Army Ministries, in Los Angeles, California. He holds a degree in Theology and is called by God to break down the strongholds of poverty and human suffering with the love of Christ through his warm, gentle affection for people. As a result, Pastor Thompson has written his first book, entitled Victory Over The Mind. Of the multitude of Christian and secular, self-help books that you’ll ever read, Victory Over the Mind is a truly splendid accomplishment. Follow along as Pastor Thompson delves into scripture to unveil the power that God placed within us. Victory Over the Mind is an awesome adventure, an excellent teaching accessory for the classroom setting and a must-read for anyone struggling with a restless mind.

Find Alja Thompson’s Victory Over The Mind at … Amazon Books Alja Thompson!
