DOG FRIENDLY Top Floor 2 bdrm/1 bath IN-UNIT laundry! Central a/c, granite countertops, dishwasher $1525 Edgewater

2020.11.26 16:51 thePalestGirl DOG FRIENDLY Top Floor 2 bdrm/1 bath IN-UNIT laundry! Central a/c, granite countertops, dishwasher $1525 Edgewater

I got a job offer out of state and have to end my lease early. I have lived in this apartment for 2.5 years and I would absolutely stay another year if I could. I need to find a subletter to take over the lease for Jan 1 (or later, if you have a flexible move date). I currently pay $1525 a month.
This is a dog-friendly building, there are no weight or breed restrictions. If you have a dog in this city you know how hard that is to find. But don’t worry, there are no mean dogs in the building — right now there are only 2, and one is some kind of micro puppy, the other is a very friendly couch potato.
Apt is top floor! No upstairs neighbors! There is in-unit laundry! Central heat and a/c, dishwasher, granite countertops — everything was gut rehabbed before we moved in. It gets great light and sun year round. Tenant pays electric and gas (heat) utilities.
There is a small back porch that gets a lot of sun — my dog literally spent all summer out there suntanning.
Neighborhood:
This is technically West Edgewater.
It is 0.8 mile walk down Granville to the Red Line. Whole Foods is exactly 1 mile away. Cermak Market is 0.7 mile north. Warren Park is 1 mile north, a giant park for walking the dog, running, or golf. Target is 0.6 miles away. Emmerson Park is across the street, with tennis courts and a playground. Clark St Andersonville shops and restaurants are 1 mile away.
Metra is building a new station on Ravenswood Ave — not sure when this will be done, but it’s something to look forward to.
I have a dog and we walk all over and know a ton of the neighbors, it is a friendly neighborhood. I know all the tenants on this side of the building and everyone is friendly, some are long-term 2+ year tenants.
Free street parking.
Cons:
You can take over my lease from Jan 1 to June 30, 2021 or sign a new lease with Cagan Management. They have been surprisingly great landlords, when I have an issue they literally fix it within 24 hours. My rent was only raised $25 in the 2.5 years I have lived here (and my neighbor negotiated his rent with them, so everything is negotiable).

2020.11.18 00:01 andrewluckswife Trip Report! 11/7/20-11/14/20

First, though I have been to WDW a couple times, it had been several years (2003 and 2009) and so much has changed! I lurked this sub regularly to get tips and found it hugely helpful! A huge thank you to the pros out there who contribute!
Like so many people, my trip plans changes pretty drastically post-covid. This was a 30th birthday trip that I planned with my boyfriend and family and I was admittedly bummed out about my "dream trip" getting modified. Our original planned group was 14 people, only 5 ended up going. We had reservations at Port Orleans Riverside and ended up choosing to stay off property since POR was closed and the savings ended up being really meaningful. We also decided to shorten the trip by a few days since our group was so small. BUT, all in all, we had a really great time.
General/Covid Stuff: I was very impressed with how well Disney handled Covid-related restrictions. They were properly staffed to manage and guide crowds, watch for mask violations, etc. I felt safe and didn't once feel like I needed to "escape". I saw a lot of various feedback about postponing trips until after Covid-restrictions are gone, and general feedback was mixed on this topic. My official takeaway is that if you're expecting specific experiences, you are likely to leave disappointed. There's obvious things missing like big parades and firework shows, and some smaller things like pre-ride shows being removed to allow for distancing. If you go in with an open mind and minimal agenda, I think it's enjoyable. I personally preferred the reduced crowds and experiencing the parks without a timeline. With that being said, I did notice a few angry guests who seemed frustrated by changes to rules, specifically. For example, I watched a lady FREAK OUT on a cast member when there weren't any more mobile order spots available within the hour at Flame Tree BBQ. I gathered that she had the day planned pretty thoroughly and was upset by not being able to walk up to the window and order (like perhaps you used to be able to??). Either way, if you have any specific plans in mind (no matter how small) it would be wise to research new protocols as I gathered a lot has changed mid-pandemic.
Hotel: We stayed at the Mystic Dunes hotel a few miles from the parks (not Disney affiliated at all). It was very okay. We had a three bed three bath (with two kitchens!) and the extra space was really nice. It ended up being cheaper for our whole family to stay there than a single room would have been at POR so we definitely got great value out of it. The guys in the group appreciated the on-site golf course. It was clean and comfortable, but dated and the service was pretty poor.
Transportation/Entry Deets: Our hotel didn't have their park shuttle running, so we rented a car. Most parking lots were allowing cars through about 45 minutes before park open and you could get through the turnstiles as soon as you got to the front. One quick note on this and on-site hotel value: it did seem like hotel transport was running a bit earlier than self-parkers were let in. We were one of the first cars in line each day but still were met with pretty big crowds at rope drop. This leads me to believe that many people are either ubering, or park access is slightly earlier if you're staying onsite. So, though fastpasses are gone, this seemed like a good perk for being able to get a popular ride or two knocked out before the park was truly open to everyone.

Crowds: In terms of people **in** the parks, it didn't seem overly crowded to me. I was able to move around freely and never got panicked about lack of social distancing. Ride wait times, though, got pretty long. Hollywood studios especially was hour-long waits for most everything we wanted to ride, even at rope drop. For the rest of the parks, we found success in being present at rope drop and wait times were more manageable first thing in the AM. By afternoon, most everything had 40+ minute waits and 90+ for popular rides. With fast passes gone, I'd recommend arriving to the parks at rope drop with 1-3 rides you really want to do and plan on just having longer waits for the rest.
Magic: Disney magic was in no way gone for me! The newer rides (FOP and Rise as standouts) are incredible and so well executed. It was nice to get to see the classics again and compare them to the latest and greatest. The cavalcades were very cute and the Christmas decor was as breathtaking as it's ever been. My whole family enjoyed our trip and can't wait to go back again in a few years (and see the full-blown experience so many rave about on here!)

2020.11.11 21:00 Jesssofiax My (27F) and Boyfriend (27M) saying he doesn’t want to touch me, acting so cold to me

We were going to a waterfall on Sunday. We woke up late, and I kind of got upset at myself as I wanted to wake up at 8 not 12. I slept in with him. Picked at me and said, “why can’t you just wake up and go shower and get ready without me being up” then, I said “because you turn to watching porn (or whatever he hides on his phone) the second I’m in shower”. Put me down and said “I’m Jess, I get insecure the moment a guy watches porn. Every next boyfriend you date is going to watch it”. Took it as a stab he doesn’t want to marry me (we’ve been together for 6 years). Before he went we got in a debate that I said I never had gone to the falls, when I have told him that I have. Kept being persistent that I said that and trying to fight me on it. Drive there, he gets so angry having to get a lighter off highway since I shouldn’t take the lighter out of the car and drives like a maniac and frustrated whole way finding a gas station. Then tells me to look at a guys license plate, when I do look out window, happens to be the timing of his window and he gets angry and says, “oh but you can look at guys”. I get sometimes insecure that he stares too much at women and is all cute/smiley/laughing when a woman that’s attractive is present. Which i admit I said later on in public that a check out was obvious while stopped to have a smoke with me. His eyes started following her as she walked by and as she was walking away as he was checking her and her ass out. I had just said it was obvious. I didn’t make a tantrum about it and get all angry as he did later on when we played golf a couple hours later. I noticed him always laughing and smiling when we were, always looking at a girl and I just continued to have a good time. I have been getting a lot better at taking it all to heart, and not letting it effect my mood. But while I didn’t get angry, he then got angry at me and kept hitting the ball and not caring anymore when I happened to look back at a guy when putting my ball down (I legit wasn’t checking him out, I was seeing if they were getting close to us so if we had to play faster so they didn’t have to wait). Wouldn’t talk to me for rest of the 4 rounds and was mad as I was trying to reassure him I didn’t do anything. When he does obvious stares, he doesn’t feel bad about them and makes me feel crazy or insecure; whereas I try and reassure him desperately to lighten and fix the time we’re having.
We had a nice dinner and he was being all cute at the table, only because there was an attractive women behind us as the moment she left, he went to being distant and not wanting to be there. Had said we could spend night here and just leave in morning. Then when it come back to walking past the falls, he was so eager to walk past it during the night and not stop like other couples. I get a sense it’s because it was so dead then, there was no girls to please or look at. He had just peed at restaurant and said he had to whole way when it was 2 mins from restaurant so he had just gone. Reached in his pocket to hold his hand and took stuff out to put in his other pocket since I wanted to hold him hand, and he says rudely “what are you doing?!?” Felt low since the whole day/night I was reaching for his hand always and he reacted like that when I was trying to make room for my hand to hold his in his pocket. He had let me do that whole day when I did that, not getting mad. Then, we get to car and I finished a smoke while he goes in to car. Notice when I get into car, there’s toilet paper by my seat. I ask him where this came from and he persists I’m crazy and it’s been there before (swear it wasn’t). He’s had a habit of moving my shit and saying I’m paranoid to make me feel crazy since I was told I had bpd. Gaslighting by narcissists creates bpd as I’ve lived with his narcissist dad that would do the same, which has made me very observant to what I do since he’s made me question my sanity a lot that I had to talk pictures of things or record to prove his dad did something. I honestly swear he put it there since it was in his pocket to mess with me and make me ruin the night and that I was the problem. He then said he wasn’t feeling staying in a hotel anymore. Kept smiling to himself randomly the whole drive home. Like he wasn’t phased by how I felt and was thinking of something/someone else. (Duper’s delight)
It’s been 2 days/nights and he doesn’t kiss me and seems so angry still at me. Morning and nights without kisses or touching. I try and ask if I can play a video game with me, only to just be ignored. Continues to drink and smoke weed and play them by himself. But then he’ll talk to me while playing for small talk about game. We had a goodnight tonight of that and laughing at stuff I’d show him, music I was listening to and show I was watching while he was playing. Then when he wants to sleep, I say goodnight only to be ignored. Then, I had put my leg on him and he slides me off and says, I don’t want to touch you. Said he forgot he was mad at me until now. felt insecure especially since Friday I cut my hair and he said he didn’t like me with short hair and said my hair looks nice when asked. I’m feeling so low right now with this situation. I don’t know why he doesn’t care to work this out and can put go to sleep right away with our relationship like this and saying “i dont want to touch you” instead of “goodnight”. I pick him up after work since he lets me use his car during day and he seems so happy there. When he gets home; he seems so miserable and I feel like it’s because of ME. He always says by me using his car while he’s at work (I get done before him) that he does so much for me and doesn’t have to let me since mine is broken right now. I don’t want to suspect cheating but I have a huge suspicion Again today, I go get him smokes an hour away after work using his car. Show up to his site on his lunch and they drive past me parked there. Boyfriend said he didn’t see me and they had to go get tape down the road. I’ve had suspicions of a lady by his work because during when he was begging for me back on our break once, he had gotten her number one night and she had texted him her name and to hang out sometime with winks. I honestly think he goes to see her on his lunch and has his buddy helping him. One time he said his car ran out of gas and made a HUGE fight about me believing it when I called him out on his Km’s not over than his normal work km’s (didn’t drive to bank and back like he said) and no gas can in car. Admitted it was a lie, laughing and smiling. Said he was mad at me and didn’t want to come home right away, that’s why he stayed at work until 8 (definitely saw someone in area). TL;DR I suspect cheating. I’m losing my mind !

Spin Casino Review

There’s nothing quite like watching the colorful symbols of a slot machine spin as the anticipation of Lady Luck showering you with riches builds to a fever pitch, is there?
That’s what Spin Casino is all about, and today I’m going to show you everything there is to know about it.
Pull up a stool beside me and grab yourself a beverage, because I’m going to be pressing all the buttons, unlocking all the features, and assessing whether or not this casino is rigged or straight.
By the time our session is done today, you’ll know just about everything there is to know about Spin Casino.
So, is this one likely to pay out the jackpot, or is it a flop that never pays no matter how much you feed into it?
We’re going to find out all of that and more in this Spin Casino review!

Is Spin Casino Legit?

Yes, Spin Casino is a legit online gambling site. I know this for the following reasons:
  • It has gaming licenses from the Malta Gaming Authority and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission
  • This is a Microgaming casino. These guys don’t work with swindlers and con artists. Their reputation is pure gold in this industry
  • It’s run by the Palace Group. They’re highly reputable and run several other well-known casinos such as Spin Palace and Ruby Fortune.

About Spin Casino

I’m a little like the Kojak of online casinos, minus the lollipop and shades. I don’t just take things at face value – I investigate and try to find out all I can about the operator. I’m happy to report that what I found out about Spin Casino is impressive.
As you can see, everything about this casino passes the initial smell test. It’s 100% legitimate and is run by highly professional operators. The fact that all of the games are powered by Microgaming means eCOGRA has tested the payouts and verified them fair. As far as I’m concerned, that’s awesome news.
I always like to make a comment on the site design. This one looks fantastic! It’s got a bright pink and white theme, and everything is laid out in logical, common-sense order. That goes for the mobile site, too. I visited on both Android and iOS devices, and it was a dream to use.

The Good Stuff

Every gambling site has its strengths and weaknesses. This one is no exception. Here’s what I like about Spin Casino.

Highly Reputable Operator

I always like knowing I’m in safe hands when gambling online.
This casino is run by one of the big hitters in the iGaming industry – The Palace Group. That means everything runs professionally, and you’ll be in the hands of pros.
They’ve been around since 2001 and count themselves as part of the Prima Network. As one of the largest networks in the world, they safely support over 500,000 registered players.

Huge Selection of World-Class Games

Most of the games at this casino are powered by Microgaming, with the exception of the live dealer games, which are powered by Evolution Gaming/Ezugi.
There are over 600 games in total including slot machines, video poker, table and card games, and the aforementioned live dealer games.

Sports Betting Available

I like a cheeky punt on soccer and boxing matches, and I’m glad that I’ll be able to place my bets while playing casino games at the same time. The sportsbook is technically a separate site, but it’s all operated by the same firm, and you can navigate to it straight from SpinCasino.com.

The Bad Stuff

I’ve yet to come across a gambling site that scores perfect marks in every category. This one has a few flaws, too.

No Poker Tournaments

As one of the few game types not supported by Spin Casino, if you like to challenge other players in Texas Hold’em or Omaha tournaments, you’ll have to do so elsewhere.
While they don’t appear to have anything against them, there are no dedicated poker rooms or tournaments available for players.

No US Players

It’s no secret that US players have a hard time finding online casinos that accept them. Unfortunately, this is yet another that doesn’t. Don’t worry, though, because we have a full list of US gambling sites that will welcome you with open arms.
>> Get Free Spins Now <<

Game Selection

This is what I like to call a “full-scale” online casino, meaning whatever type of game you want to play, you’ll be able to do so here. You’ll find hundreds of slots, dozens of video poker games, and lots of digital and live dealer blackjack/roulette games.
In this section, I’ll show you everything you need to know about these games, which firms power them, and how much they’ll cost you to play.

Software

The casino games at Spin Casino are powered by Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, and Ezugi. If you know about casino games at all, you’ll already know that these are top-level operators who produce world-class, fair, reliable casino games.
That tells me everything I need to know in advance – the gaming experience here will be second to none. Nonetheless, let’s look at the games in more detail. I’ll show you exactly what games are available in each category and what I make of them.

Slots

If you love to spin the reels in the hope of landing that one payout that changes it all, you’ll be spoiled for choice here. I love slots, and I recommend the following games at Spin Casino:
  • 108 Heroes
  • Agent Jane Blonde
  • Bar Bar Black Sheep
  • Bikini Party
  • Candy Dreams
  • Treasure Nile (Jackpot)
  • Dragon Dance
  • Dream Date
  • Exotic Cats
  • Forbidden Throne
  • Frozen Diamonds
  • Game of Thrones
  • Girls With Guns
  • Mega Moolah (Jackpot)
  • Immortal Romance
  • Shoot
  • Titans of the Sun
  • King Cashalot (Jackpot)
  • Bridezilla
  • Gold Factory
  • Jekyll & Hyde
  • Thunderstruck II
  • White Buffalo
There are currently 315 slots available at Spin Casino. Since they’re powered by Microgaming, it probably doesn’t need to be stated that they’re all world-class games. You can try all of them in “demo mode” if you want to experiment with any of them.

Video Poker

If you’ve read any of my casino reviews before, you’ll already know that I play video poker more than any other game. It’s the strategy, you see. I love knowing that I have some control and that my skill will be rewarded, rather than being at the mercy of chance alone.
If you feel the same way, check out the following games:
  • Aces & Eights
  • Aces & Faces
  • All Aces
  • Deuces Wild
  • Deuces Wild Bonus Poker
  • Double Double Bonus Poker
  • Jacks or Better
  • All American Poker
  • Bonus Poker
  • Bonus Poker Deluxe
  • Deuces & Joker
  • Double Bonus Poker
  • Double Joker Poker
  • Hold’em High Gold Series
  • Joker Poker
  • Louisiana Double Poker
  • Tens or Better
These video poker games are powered by Quickfire/Microgaming. You’ll be able to bet between $1 and $25 per hand. The games are flawless and run as smooth as silk.
As with the other games, you can play these games for free. This will allow you to assess their quality for yourself and test your video poker strategies.

Table Games

You just can’t beat good old table and card games. They make a casino what it is, don’t they? You’ll be able to play the following games and variants at Spin Casino:
  • Atlantic City Blackjack
  • Classic Blackjack
  • European Blackjack Gold Series
  • Vegas Blackjack Gold Series
  • Vegas Strip Gold Series
  • Big Five Blackjack
  • Bonus Blackjack Gold Series
  • Double Exposure Blackjack
  • HiLo 13 European Blackjack
  • Perfect Pairs European Blackjack
  • Vegas Downtown Blackjack
  • Spanish Blackjack Gold Series
  • Super Fun 21
  • Roulette
  • European Roulette
  • French Roulette
  • Multi Wheel Roulette
  • Premier Roulette
  • Diamond Edition Roulette
  • Spingo
  • Wheel of Riches
  • Baccarat
  • Baccarat Gold Series
  • Craps
I love that all the games are offered in demo mode here. There were a few variants I hadn’t played in a while, and I was able to familiarize myself with them again without playing for real money. I suggest you check them out for yourself, and you’ll see that they’re all high-quality.
Bets range from $0.50 to $500. Whether you’re a high-stakes player or are more conservative, you’ll be welcome here.

Live Casino

Live casino games are the present and the future of online table and card games, and you’ll be able to play the best of them here. Check out the following games:
  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Casino Hold ‘Em
  • Dream Catcher
  • Football Studio
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em
  • Dragon Tiger Live
  • Roulette
  • Shangri La Roulette
  • Lightning Roulette
The live games are powered by Evolution Gaming and Ezugi, which now flies under the Evolution Gaming banner. Unlike most of the other games here, you’ll have to pay to play these from the start. There are no demo modes or free play versions available.
You can sit and watch for a while, but when you’re ready to play, you’ll be able to bet from $0.10 to $5,000, depending on the game and variant.

My Favorite Find at Spin Casino

My favorite find at Spin Casino is my favorite slot ever – Thunderstruck II. It’s probably Microgaming’s best game of all time and has truly stood the test of time.
With a cool “Norse gods” theme and a cracking multi-level free spins round, you don’t want to miss this game. It doesn’t have the biggest jackpot Microgaming has to offer, but it’s highly entertaining and could put a healthy balance in your account.

Sportsbook

If you like having a punt on games, matches, fights, and sporting events of various stripes and colors, you’ll be happy here. You can bet on the following sports:
  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Ice Hockey
  • American Football
  • Handball
  • Volleyball
  • Cricket
  • Rugby Union
  • Rugby League
  • Esports
  • Specials
  • Virtual Sports
  • Boxing
  • Golf
  • Badminton
  • Futsal
  • Winter Sports
  • MMA
  • Snooker
  • Baseball
  • Cycling
  • Many More!
You’ll find all of the sports you can bet on listed on the left-hand menu. Some of the more popular sports are also listed on a sticky menu at the top of the main lobby page.
It’s a fairly straightforward sportsbook, although it is modern and interactive in terms of its design. There are no special features to speak of. That’s not a bad thing, in my view. I prefer simple and to the point rather than complex and convoluted, but that’s just me.
The most important thing is that this is a user-friendly site. Whether you’re using a desktop or mobile device, you’ll be able to find everything easily and will find all sports and events categorized in an intuitive, logical way.
The ability to view odds in decimal, fractional, and American formats wins major points with me. It’s these little things that show Spin Sports has put time and effort into making the user experience as enjoyable as possible. There’s nothing worse than having to convert odds in your head or on some notepaper.
The site is 100% mobile-friendly. I visited on my Android phone and found it a breeze to use. You’ll see all of the popular sports on a sticky menu at the top, there’s a search feature so you can quickly find action on sports you love, and you’ll see all of the current and upcoming events right below that.
There are no apps, but that’s okay. The mobile site is so easy to use that you won’t need them anyway.

Esports

The esports sector is on fire right now, and it’s great to see Spin Sports embracing it. You’ll find action on Dota 2, CS:GO, LoL, Starcraft 2, Rainbow Six, and Rocket League.
Leagues include the European Championship, Dream League, The United Masters League, and various other global leagues and tournaments. If esports is your thing, you’ll be happy here.

Live Betting

No modern sports betting site would be complete without enabling live/in-play betting. You’ll be able to bet on soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, golf, futsal, and table tennis.
There are lots of betting markets across these sports, but let’s focus on the most popular sport for in-play betting – soccer. You can wager on total score, next team to score, penalties, total goals in each half, results in each half, and lots of proposition bets such as the outcomes of corners, free kicks, and many other things.
I’ve seen some sites with a bigger range of live betting markets, but if this isn’t enough for you, it might be wise to seek help because you probably have a problem.

Promotions

Spin Casino has a great welcome bonus and a unique way of rewarding ongoing players. As you’ll see, rather than a bunch of gimmicky bonuses for each day of the week, you’ll win regular rewards by spinning a bonus wheel. This adds an element of excitement into the mix, and I like it a lot.
Let’s check those bonuses out then, shall we?

Welcome Bonus

As a new player, Spin Casino will give you three separate deposit bonuses to get you started. Here’s what you can get:
  1. You can get 100% up to $400
  2. You’ll get another 100% up to $300
  3. Then you’ll be eligible for another 100% bonus up to $300
The minimum deposit required to activate this is $10, and the wagering requirements are 50x. Those could be a little lower, but it’s a big bonus, so we can make allowances.

Bonus Wheel

Rather than lots of ongoing daily and weekly promotions, Spin Casino has come up with a unique and innovative way to make sure you’re rewarded often.
You’ll regularly be offered free spins on the bonus wheel and will win free spins, cash credits, deposit bonuses, loyalty points, and more.
Of course, standard wagering requirements apply. You didn’t think the casino would give you freebies and let you walk away, did ya?

Spin Sports Free Bet

If you decide to make use of the sports betting service, you’ll be eligible for a $200 free bet bonus. It’s a deposit match offer worth 100% of whatever you deposit, with $10 being the minimum and $200 being the maximum.
This is a straightforward deal. There are two main stipulations you need to be aware of – you’ll have to claim the offer within 7 days, and 5x playthrough requirements apply at odds of 1.3 or greater.

Banking

Let’s now take a look at the banking options available. This is a section I always pay particular attention to since it tells me lots about the gambling site. If there are any hidden nasties, I’ll normally find them here.
There are no extra deposit or withdrawal fees, but do check with your bank or card issuer. Some payment providers do charge extra fees for gambling transactions.
There are plenty of ways to make deposits and withdrawals here. Note that the withdrawal method you use will have to be the same as your deposit method thanks to anti-money laundering laws.
You can’t use cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum at this casino. Perhaps that’ll change in the future.
The maximum withdrawal you can make in a 24-hour period is $10,000.

Deposit Methods

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Instadebit
  • iDebit
  • eCheck
  • Much Better
  • Paysafecard
  • Neosurf
  • ecoPayz
  • Flexepin
  • Instant Banking

Withdrawal Methods

  • Visa
  • Neteller

VIP Program

Spin Casino has a multi-level loyalty club with progressive benefits. That means each time you reach a new level, you’ll unlock a bunch of new rewards.
There are six levels in all – Blue, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Prive.
As with most loyalty schemes, you’ll earn points. Each 1,000 “Club Points” will be worth $10. Here’s what’s on offer at the various levels:
  • Blue – You’ll get access to exclusive tournaments and $500
  • Silver – You’ll receive the same benefits as blue level, but your bonus will be worth $1,000
  • Gold – At this level, you’ll get all the perks of silver, but your bonus will increase to $2,000, and you’ll unlock access to new tournaments
  • Platinum – Here, you’ll get all the gold-level perks plus a $5,000 bonus, access to exclusive tournaments, and your own account manager who you can contact 24/7
  • Diamond – At this level, your bonus will be worth $7,500, you’ll get your own VIP territory manager, and you’ll have access to your own personal phone number
  • Prive – Your monthly bonuses will be worth $10,000 at this level, you’ll get all the diamond-level perks, plus invitations to global events, and exclusive gifts and bonuses
All in all, this is a generous VIP program albeit a standard one in terms of format. You’ll be well rewarded here.

Customer Service

If you need to reach out about anything, which you will at some point no matter how good a casino is, you have the following options.
Email – There’s an email form on the site that you can submit comments and questions through. Expect a reply within 24 hours.
Live Chat – A much faster way to get in touch is via live chat. I did have to wait roughly two minutes before getting connected, but the answers I got regarding bonus offers were satisfactory, and the live chat agent was friendly.
I’d like to see a telephone hotline option, but this is good enough for now, and the service is fine. Perhaps as this casino grows, telephone support will be added.

Would I Play at Spin Casino?

Yes, I’d most definitely play at this casino, and in fact, I will be doing just that from now on. It’s rare that a casino I review wins me over as a player, but this one has done the trick.
If you’re after world-class games (and plenty of them), ongoing bonuses and rewards, fair banking policies, and solid customer support, look no further – you’ve found your site in Spin Casino.
Go ahead and check it out for yourself. We promise you’ll like it!

2020.10.25 18:44 kimmusmaximus Went on a date in San Francisco yesterday, it was depressing even though I liked the girl. Fuck this "New Normal" and fuck Gavin Newsom.

I met a girl on Bumble last week and we decided to meet up for some brunch and a walk along Crissy Field in San Francisco. I have not been to San Francisco in a few months due to the fact that almost everywhere is still closed down. The city is in absolute shambles right now, and visiting yesterday for the date left me feeling very disheartened despite having a nice experience.
Once I arrived about 10 minutes early for our date, I was shocked to see the once-bustling streets a complete ghost town. It was like the city was still stuck in March. Many restaurants were closed for good or still only offering takeout. Novelty shops, bookstores, and other cute little businesses were all mostly locked down. Despite temperate weather yesterday afternoon, everyone was masked up, with many pedestrians adding on ridiculous face shields and rubber gloves as well. Discarded surgical masks littered the already-filthy gutters and sidewalks. The strong scent of urine and fecal matter wafted through the air, even through the mask I was wearing (so much for protection from airborne pathogens, right?).
Once the girl arrived, we had a pleasant experience overall, but the date was significantly hampered by the above-mentioned conditions created by our state's absurd lockdown policies. We took off our masks at our outdoor table to talk while waiting for our food, and a waitress came by politely asking us to put our masks on while waiting for the food. We both thought her request was ridiculous, but I felt obligated to comply and not cause a scene. Despite the unpleasantness of having to eat outdoors in such a restrictive environment, I had a good time talking to her. We both agreed that many of the lockdown policies were absurdly restrictive and that the current state of San Francisco was depressing. Despite the ridiculous restaurant mask policies, the food was good, and we went on a walk afterwards down to Crissy Field, which has a fantastic view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The weather was chilly but sunny with a strong breeze, and I once again removed my mask to enjoy our walk together without being suffocated. Once again, we both got harassed, this time by passing joggers and pedestrians who made snide comments about our lack of face coverings. At one point, a mom pushing a stroller with two babies (who were both masked by the way) made a passing comment about calling the park police. I thought in my head that I should confront her about how she is suffocating her babies, but decided not to do anything that could potentially make the girl I was with uncomfortable. We both agreed to find a nice spot to sit down, away from the mask-stasi.
While sitting down with her, I began to feel somewhat depressed, despite enjoying the company of the girl. We continued to have good conversations, but I started to feel melancholic. We had a small kiss, but I didn't really feel the sparks I was expecting, most likely due to my mood from experiencing the brutal reality of life in Newsom's California. Although I thanked the girl for a nice time before she left on the bus, I don't expect to go on another date with her, due to the fact that she doesn't have a car and I live too far away to meet anywhere besides locked down San Francisco. Normally, my first dates in San Francisco are filled with funs things to do; my ex and I's first date in San Francisco consisted of riding the ferry from Larkspur, then visiting Alcatraz, the Exploratorium, and stopping by a few cute museums along the way. Almost none of those activities are possible under current conditions. I've been on a few dates now, and despite my best efforts, it's extremely difficult to find somewhere fun and entertaining to take girls on dates. Many girls aren't even willing to meet in the first place. The state of dating right now in California under tyrant Newsom is so bad, it's almost enough to make me want to leave California entirely.
With every single typical date site closed down, there's almost nothing left besides going for a hike or outdoor dining (an increasingly unpleasant experience due to the colder weather). No museum visits, mini golfing, or other activities that I usually enjoy doing with girls. Even when we do like each other, I can't have her over to meet my parents or cuddle on the couch, and the relationship tends to fizzle out due to lack of intimacy. Every girl I've met so far through online dating has roommates or family who won't let visitors over, and my parents do not allow visitors either. Our perception of risk is so skewed that we're willing to accept complete isolation from the world and the resulting depression and anxiety in the name of "safety" from a virus that 99% of people will survive (and almost everyone who is in relatively good health). This lockdown and "new normal" will never be over unless we say it is. We need to march in the streets, just like in Italy and the Czech Republic. Here's the thing: both of those countries had the strictest lockdowns you could imagine, for months on months. Guess what? They didn't work. The virus will never go away, and the lockdowns will never go away either. Do everything you can to defy these inhumane, totalitarian, arbitrary edicts so that we may all live free rather than slaves cooped up in our homes.

2020.10.23 22:31 dogeman87 I found a dangerous treasure. [Part 1]

I struck literal gold. One moment, I was digging around on the beach with my girlfriend Shauna, flirting and kicking up sand. The next I hit something hard.
I yelled over to her, and we uncovered a small box. Inside the box were countless gold coins. They were so worn that I had no way of identifying anything on their surfaces, no distinguishing marks or dates or images. What I was certain of was that it was gold.
See, I knew what gold felt like. I’m a jeweler and coin trader. Most of the time, when you feel “gold,” it’s an alloy. Hard, lightweight, shiny.
Real gold is malleable, and it’s heavy as hell. I could feel in my hand how heavy those coins were compared to normal ones. I also noticed that the markings were deformed because of how high the gold content was. At the time, I figured I had stumbled upon an unknown cache of pirate loot.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
A historian later told me that they had dated the coins back to the fifth century. I told him that was impossible. I live in Maine, and, in case you weren’t aware, America wasn’t settled by Europeans then. There were only Native Americans, none of which could have made currency like the kind I’d found.
“I don’t know what to tell you,” he said. “The tests are quite clear.”
“Maybe you should try again,” I told him.
“Won’t change anything, sir. Carbon dating is really accurate.”
They had tested both the box and the coins. They were the same age. Unlike me, they were more interested in the box. Its craftsmanship was of an unknown origin. There was artwork gilded on that no one had seen before. It was intricate, truly amazing, and I couldn’t believe that I had just dug it up by accident.
Their conclusion was that someone had made it to North America earlier than thought before. This was not unheard of. It’s common knowledge now that the Vikings made it to America before the Europeans. Why not some other civilization?
Problem was, we’re able to identify Viking and European artifacts. I’d guess a few dozen people looked at those coins and the box. No one knew who had made them. The coins themselves didn’t match any known currency. The box was made of Sequoia, which, given the trees’ location on the west coast, made little sense at all. What kind of civilization traversed the continent at that time?
In the end, they said they needed to do more research. They would keep me updated, if only because I had found the treasure. I was told that I had made one of the greatest archeological finds in history. The coins would potentially teach them about a lost civilization, rewrite our understanding of North American and maritime history.
They were wrong. To their credit, they could not have known the implications of what they had found.
*
My great-uncle killed himself three days later. Hung himself with a cord from his kitchen blinds. His death was surprising, but not unexpected. I know how that sounds. Let me explain.
His wife had died two years ago. Breast cancer. She was only seventy-three. He’d been devastated, as had the rest of us. He didn’t know what to do with himself. He had counseling, support from family and friends, visits at all hours of the day. It wasn’t enough.
He eventually returned to his normal routine- golf, reading, TV, cards with friends- but he wasn’t the same. A cloud hung over him, or so I was told at the funeral. Why wouldn’t it? He had lost his wife to a horrendous six months of pain. Anyone would be devastated by that.
Apparently, though, he’d been good at hiding his depression. His therapist claimed he had been deteriorating over the past couple months. We berated her, asked her why she hadn’t told us or anyone else. She said he had never seemed suicidal, and that she had to keep her clients’ information confidential, even from family. This, as it turned out, was true; my mother wanted to sue and hit a brick wall when the lawyer explained everything to her.
I was sad, sure. I cried for a couple days. Shauna took off work to take care of me, because I couldn’t take care of myself. I hadn’t been particularly close to my uncle, but having a family member kill themselves is pretty brutal.
My grandmother was hit hardest. She had been his sister. She was eighty-four at the time, much older than him but a lot closer than you might guess. He’d been her only remaining sibling. The other, my great-aunt Sherry, had died of a stroke.
I figured that these things happened. People died. I was lucky to have three of my grandparents and my own parents living. My brother was healthy. My girlfriend was healthy. I was healthy. I was twenty-six, but I was not naïve: I knew any one of us could drop dead from anything, at any time. Life is precious, etc., etc.
What I did not expect were the deaths that followed. First it was my old friend from college. He got into a car accident two days later, slipped into a coma and died. I had already been reeling from my uncle’s suicide. The death of a close friend only knocked me more off-kilter.
I took off a week of sick leave. I was pretty high-up at the jeweler’s shop I worked in, and they understood. There was no official bereavement time, and my losses wouldn’t exactly have qualified under our policy. Still, there was no limit to how much sick time we could take- that provision had been removed when a manager had suffered from a year-long battle with leukemia- so they were more than happy to give me the time I needed.
I was grateful. I thought I’d be ready to go back Monday, try to get into a semblance of a routine again. Shauna was unbelievably supportive. She took care of all the chores, talked with me for hours, let me cry when I thought I couldn’t cry anymore. Not once did she complain or suggest that it was too much for her.
Then everything went to shit.
My brother was hurt first. He works at a manufacturing facility, maintaining equipment and SOPs. He lost three fingers to a faulty machine. I visited him for an entire day and didn’t leave until he went into surgery.
His recovery would be the best news I would get. Two of his fingers were able to be reattached. The pink had been too badly mauled to be sewn back on. He would tell me later that he didn’t care. Who needed a pinky? That’s what he told me, at least. He was very upbeat about it all.
He was not upbeat when the other accidents occurred.
My second cousin was killed in a climbing accident. He went alone, which we had repeatedly told him was dangerous. His wife got worried the next day. The police searched the area and had no trouble finding his body. Based on the injuries he’d sustained, they guessed he had been alive for some time before succumbing to his wounds.
I could not imagine how horrifying it must have been, lying beside a cliff in the middle of the wilderness, with no way to call anyone because there was no cell service, forced to lay there and let yourself bleed, cough up blood for half an hour until you started losing consciousness.
Shauna was still supportive, but now I was legitimately losing it. I was shell-shocked. I couldn’t do much more than watch TV or play video games. She told me I needed a therapist. I declined. I told her I was dealing with it in my own way. That was bullshit. I was dealing with it by drowning myself in sorrow, drinking so much I passed out one night on the couch and woke up with a headache that made me think I’d had my first migraine.
That morning, between my pounding skull and her incessant talking, her legitimate concern that burned my mind like fire, I got the last call that I would remember before going insane.
It was for Shauna’s work. They wanted her to come in for a couple hours. I told her I’d be fine. She locked up the alcohol and said she would be back before lunch.
She never came back. Instead, I was greeted by two somber-looking police officers. I had broken into the cellar at that point and was drinking straight from a bottle of whiskey when they knocked. I almost fell onto the front porch before they steadied me and brought me inside.
They obviously knew what I had been through. They were very reluctant to share what had just happened. I think I was rude to them. It’s hard to remember now. When I’m drunk, I lose track of my surroundings. I liken it to a dream state, where you know what you’re doing in the moment but only have flashes of it later.
One flash was clear. I remember them telling me that Shauna had been murdered. I jumped off the couch, stumbling, almost tripping over my coffee table before I went into the kitchen. They followed. Thank God they followed. I went for the largest knife I could find, but before I could use it they had me pinned against the wall. They were saying something, probably something comforting. I tried kicking at them. The kicks were weak. They subdued me on the couch, told me to calm down, that they understood what I was going through.
I’m guessing the guy I tackled was calling an ambulance or a suicide hotline. He didn’t expect me to be sober enough for what I did. I lunged for his legs, took him down, then the world went black.
*
I woke up in a jail cell. I wasn’t held there for long. The officer I had assaulted didn’t want to press charges. I had been drunk, in grief, and I had suffered more tragedy than he had seen one person deal with in a lifetime. And it had been a matter of weeks. He was sympathetic, to say the least.
He did warn me to get it under control. Another officer would not be as kind, he said. He gave me a number to call for a therapist. He suggested I call a trusted friend or family member to help me get through the next few days and weeks. He told me he’d personally call my work and tell them to give me a month off, minimum, because no one could be expected to function after losing so many people.
He was such a kind man. I wish I could have entertained his requests. Instead, I went home and got blackout drunk. I passed out on the floor, woke up in my own vomit, felt a huge bump on my head, then went straight back to the wine cellar before realizing I was about to get myself killed.
I had most likely come very close to alcohol poisoning. More than once. I didn’t want to be the next dead family member. That thought got me on my feet, working through the headache that made my brain feel like it was swelling against my skull. I sobered up, made a few calls, arranged to have my parents stay with me for a while, and tried my best to distract myself with old sports reruns.
*
Things got easier once my parents arrived. They took care of me as if I was a teenager again. My mom did the laundry, my dad cleaned, my mom cooked meals that made my mouth water just looking at them. They talked with me for hours. My family was their family, and they were just as devastated as I was about my cousin and girlfriend and the others that had suffered tragedies in the past month. The difference was that they were in their sixties, veterans of grief, my mom having lost her father to ALS and my father having lost two siblings to HIV, back before it was treatable.
You never get accustomed to grief. It’s always hard, no matter how many times you go through it. Some people manage to recover and live their previous lives. Most are irreparably changed in some way. I was the latter. I didn’t think I could ever return to my job, to my life. I felt like I would be betraying the memory of my loved ones by going out to bars again and watching TV. I refuted the idea that getting back into my hobbies would help me recover.
I didn’t refuse for very long. My parents are persuasive. They are the best kind of people. They are persistent, but not in a mean way. They wouldn’t let me go out until I promised I would do something. A game of golf, a movie with a friend, a get-together that another cousin was having- I had to attend one thing for every time I left the house.
It was therapeutic. So was my therapist, of course. She was great. She didn’t pull punches, told me that it would do no good to kid myself about what happened but to, because dwelling on the past would do no good in the future. “Remember and move on” was how she put it. She didn’t mean move on in that I should just go about my life like nothing had changed. She understood. All she recommended was that I not let tragedy stop me from what I wanted to do.
I was doing well. I was feeling so damn good about myself until the latest news hit. The office called me on a Saturday morning, which at the time somehow did not concern me.
My therapist was dead. She lived alone, and she had been found rotting on her couch, barely visible through a side window. Apparently, she’d taken sick leave the past couple days, and someone had obviously been concerned.
I went into the rabbit hole again. I asked myself what I had done to deserve this. I asked why death had to follow me like it had. I wondered if I was not in a coma-induced hallucination, because the sheer amount of tragedy that had befallen me seemed impossible.
That’s when I realized: it was impossible. You hear things like what I went through all the time in the history books and the news. You shake your head, say a few prayers and move on, accepting it simply because someone else wants you to. But what had happened to me was different. So many different people had been hurt, killed, in ways that I still could not understand.
The autopsy of the therapist showed that she had drowned. In her house. Like, how the fuck? There was no water anywhere in the bathtubs or sink. They even checked the goddamn basin in the laundry room, and that wasn’t full, either. Besides, she would have been found in the water if she had gone that route.
No, I knew that something was off. I didn’t tell my parents about my suspicions. I pretended to feel better, to go out more. I even planned on going back to work in a couple weeks, sooner than they had expected, sooner than they felt comfortable with. My boss was very understanding. She thought it wasn’t healthy to come back so soon. She told me my position was not in jeopardy and that everyone was sympathetic with my situation. She was not lying.
I was. I lied to my parents, to my work and my new therapist. I didn’t tell them about my suspicions.
I didn’t tell them what I found in my bed that night.
*
It was one of the fucking coins. I knew it the second I saw that piece of gold glinting in the starlight. I had no idea how it had gotten there at first. I considered calling the museum that had taken the coins, seeing if they had lost one or if they had been stolen. I immediately realized how bad that would look. They had kept me updated about the whole research process. They would know if something had gone missing. If I showed them that I had one of the coins, they would think I had stolen it. They would arrest me and I’d be sent to jail again, this time without a therapist or family to support me, left to rot in my own mind. I’d probably kill myself, I realized. I needed constant support back then.
If no one had brought the coin, and I hadn’t taken it, then that left only one option. The supernatural.
Okay, you’re probably thinking about how crazy that sounds. Why would I jump to such an immediate conclusion? Several things. One, the obscene nature of the deaths I had experienced around me. No one goes through as much tragedy as I had at my age, unless they’re in a warzone or an impoverished country or bring it on themselves by their actions.
Two, the therapist’s death. The police were still baffled by how she had died. Time of death put her squarely in the house, because she had died no more than two hours before they had pulled up. It would have been very difficult to transport her body back inside so soon after her death. Besides, there was no body of water deep enough in the near vicinity to do the job. She wouldn’t have been taken in a car, either, because they would have found something on her, some fibers or other forensic evidence.
The third piece of evidence was sitting right in front of me. The coin. I realized then how stupid I had been. I had brought everything on myself. I had taken those coins, the ones that had seemed amazing at the time and had equally amazed archeologists and historians alike. They had marveled at how such a secret had been hidden for so long in the sand, how no signs of the civilization had ever been uncovered.
I understood now. People might have found it before, but they would have returned it. The treasure was cursed. It had to be brought back to the very spot I had found it. I knew how impossible that would be, breaking into a museum and stealing a priceless artifact, avoiding guards and security cameras and God knew how many other measures had been taken place to secure it. They were held in storage, which was about the most secure place I had ever seen, more secure than banks or the jewelry shop I worked at, where we kept a lot of priceless artifacts locked up in two fireproof safes in the back.
Fortunately, no one knew where I had found the treasure. My girlfriend had, but now she was dead. I had only told them that I had been on the beach. They hadn’t questioned where exactly I had discovered it for some reason, and if they had I would have told them I didn’t know. It would have been an honest answer, but I remembered now, more out of desperation than anything. I could picture the shape of the rocks around the site, the remoteness of the shoreline, how Shauna and I had been the only people around for miles.
Shauna was mostly the reason I remembered. It was one of the last times I could remember her smiling. Those images had gotten stuck in my head recently. It was hard, thinking about her all the time, but it was also refreshing, going back to times when I had been so happy and innocent.
I knew what had to be done. I just didn’t know if it was possible. How the hell would I break into a secure museum? Bring back the treasure and bury it before I got caught? It would not be found again, I was sure, at least not in my lifetime. The last thing they would suspect was that I would bury it where it had been found. They wouldn’t even suspect me, either, unless I slipped up at some point. In all likelihood, if I succeeded, they would check the black markets for the next half a century and wait for the coins to turn up, not knowing that they had been removed from human hands for a long time, hopefully forever.
I did not wonder about who had made the coins. I still don’t. I didn’t care if it was some ancient civilization or aliens or Europeans that had somehow cruised across the ocean a thousand years before Columbus. I cared about saving the rest of my family and friends.
I wanted to blame myself for what had happened. I couldn’t. Even then, caught up in grief and shock and a host of other emotions, I had a shred of logic left in me. I knew that there was no way I could have known what I’d found, no way anyone could have known. Shauna had gone along with it, hadn’t she? Everyone had. The historians had been thrilled. I had, too, thinking I had found the most important artifact in decades.
Now I had to steal that knowledge from them forever. Surely they had not finished studying the coins. I could not care less. I had to return them, to prevent more deaths that would surely follow if they remained in the hands of historians. Who knew? Maybe tragedy would leak through to them, to anyone that laid eyes on the coins, to the entire fucking country for all I knew. By stealing them, I might be saving millions of lives. A plague could sweep through, one worse than the Black Death or AIDS or Ebola, one that would never be traced back to the coins but would continue regardless.
Maybe they would trigger anarchy, an overthrow of the government or other governments in the world. They could cause civil wars. Nuclear war. Hell, they could probably summon an asteroid from space and blow the planet apart.
I didn’t want to find out. I had to figure out how I was stealing the coins. I had to find the exact spot I had dug them up, bury them, and absolve myself from my crimes, making sure I was never discovered or even suspected, because if I was they’d find out what I had done, where I had buried them, and the entire thing would start up again. Most likely, whoever returned the treasure to the museum would suffer tragedies that they would never blame on the supernatural, because a part of me had always believed in such things, was more susceptible to the unbelievable than a scientist or most other people in general.
The coin was still lying on my pillow. I stashed it in my drawer, below a pile of swimsuits that I hadn’t taken out for some time. No one would find it there. If they did, they might not recognize what they had seen and just leave it. Either way, I had nowhere else to save it. I had no safe or secret compartments.
What I was about to do was stupid and could get me in prison. If I failed, I might condemn thousands or millions of others to death. I might trigger the end of civilization. I figured I was overexaggerating with that last one, but I couldn’t know. The treasure had already taken so much in such a short period of time. It was impossible to say what it was capable of.
I was going to steal the treasure and bury it. I had no choice. When it was done, I would forget and, like my first therapist had said, move on with my life. I’d return to work, find a new girlfriend at some point, let my parents go back to their home in Connecticut and rediscover my hobbies.
Or I would go to prison. Or I would die. Or a million other things might happen. I was many things back then, but you can’t say I wasn’t determined. I felt like I was responsible for more lives than any leader in history, any doctor or politician or president or king. I was delusional, I was grief-stricken, and I was angry.
I was not going to fuck this up.

Casumo Review

Casumo is a top-quality online casino and sportsbook, with a strong reputation for delivering excellent customer service, offering a rich array of sports to choose from, and securing some super competitive deals and offers for their players. Previously best known for their casino games, the brand signed an agreement with sportsbook supplier Kambi in 2018 to expand their offerings, and this has really taken off amongst sports betting fans.
Since its initial inception in 2012, Casumo has worked hard to establish a strong presence within the world of sports betting. The results speak for themselves; the site was the winner of the eGaming Review (EGR) Rising Star Award in 2013, just a year after their launch, and took the trophy for Innovation in Casino for 2014 and 2015. 2015 also saw their mobile efforts acknowledged as they pocketed Mobile Casino Product of the Year, and 2017 was another double bonus, with nods for Affiliate Program and Mobile Operator. This victory for their mobile operation was repeated in 2018, and they finished 2019 on a high thanks to the International Gaming Award for Best Online Casino Operator.

Casumo Sportsbook Welcome Offer & Promotions

As any casino or sportsbook fan will tell you, the secret to success for many of these sites is the way they reward their customers. Promotions and deals are essential for getting new players through the door, rewarding and recognizing loyalty, and giving long-term faithful fans a reason to stay and play.
The Welcome Bonus is perhaps the most crucial element to this offering, as it is often the first interaction a player will have with the site – and it is essential that their first impression is a great one!
Casumo keeps things simple, but appealing, with a free £10 bet awarded to all new players who have already wagered an initial £10 bet. In essence, this doubles the deposit and is a great welcome for all newbies. To qualify, customers must place a bet of £10 minimum, on any pre-match or in-play sports market, at odds of at least ⅗. Once the initial qualifying bet is settled, the account will be automatically credited with the Free Bet, and this can be used on sports and games to boost the chances of a healthy profit! Both the qualifying and the free bet must be placed within 35 days of registration to the site, and there is then a 35-day window in which to settle the qualifying bet.
This Free Bet is a super generous deal, which is sure to be a real incentive to new players searching for a lucrative deal. The site also offers a range of regular deals, promotions, and offers, especially during major sporting competitions and tournaments.
These can range from free bets, as seen in the welcome offer, to matched bets, reload bonuses, and even the chance to grab great cash prizes. It is crucial that players check in with the site regularly, as some of these offers are time-sensitive, and there is a risk of missing out if you don’t move fast.
As well as offering great bonuses to new visitors, sportsbooks and casinos must work hard to acknowledge more long-term customers and those who remain consistently loyal to the site. This is usually achieved through a VIP or loyalty program, and these schemes are a great way to offer exclusive, members-only discounts, games, and deals.
At present, Casumo runs a fantastic VIP scheme that sees players given a chance to ‘Level Up’ as they play games on the site. This offer is targeted mainly at the casino element of the site, where different games allow players to travel to different planets, grabbing valuable experience as they go. Leveling up unlocks new perks and bonuses, such as deposit extras and even cash bonuses, until you reach the pinnacle of Casumo success: the coveted black belt.
Trophies are also a valuable aspect of the site and can be achieved through actions such as winning three times in a row or enjoying a particularly big win. The VIP scheme does not currently seem to have many perks for the sportsbook side of the site, but it is highly likely that this aspect will become more incorporated as it grows and develops.

The Product, Sports, and Markets

One of the significant advantages of Casumo is the vast range of choices available to players. There is a wide variety of sports on offer, including Olympic and championship events, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, and traditional football. Athletics, beach volleyball and golf are also popular, as are racquet sports including badminton, squash, tennis and table tennis. Water sports such as swimming and surfing sit alongside ball sports, including basketball, netball, baseball, rugby and handball, and fans of the frozen will enjoy winter sports and ice hockey matches. Also in the mix are darts, snooker, MMA, motorsports, boxing, and curling, as well as classic favourites greyhound and horse racing – there is something to suit every interest, however niche!
Live betting is a massive part of the industry, and Casumo recognises this by making it a key feature of its offering. Fans can place bets at any point during the match to place a bet, helping you stay totally up to date and accurate as the magic unfolds before your eyes. A single button takes you to every match currently in play, meaning you can get to where you need to be faster, and increasing your chances of success. This aspect is a huge bonus for the site and helps them to stand with some of the major names in the business.

eSports

eSports is an area that is rapidly growing in popularity, and so it comes as no surprise that Casumo has decided to grab a piece of what could be a very profitable pie. As the name suggests, eSports refers to ‘electronic sports’ and refers to a type of console or computer game played by individuals or teams, usually over the Internet. The size and scale of these events mean that they can attract significant sponsorship deals from a host of top companies, and as a result, they have the potential to be extremely lucrative.
Casumo have ensured that they do have something to offer every type of customer, and currently offer the following games under their eSports banner: Call of Duty, CS: GO, Dota 2, Dragon Ball, FIFA, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, Overwatch, PUBG, Rocket League, Starcraft 2, Street Fighter, Super Smash Bros and Tekken.
In addition to offering a host of some of the most popular games on the market, Casumo also offer great deals, promotions and offers on major events and tournaments – make sure you are checking in with the site to avoid missing out on a great opportunity.

Casino

Prior to adopting the sportsbook in 2012, Casumo were best known for their online casino, and this is an aspect which remains active. With top producers such as NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Quickspin, and Red Gaming working hard behind the scenes, they are able to offer some of the most popular slots and titles on the market, including Book of Dead, Starburst, Dead or Alive II, and Bonanza Megaways.
In addition to a wide range of titles, customers can benefit from a super tempting welcome deal, which sees the awarding of a 100% match bonus, and an impressive 30 wager-free spins to spend on classic favourite Book of Dead. These freebies will be allocated upon registration, and do not come with any wagering requirements – a welcome rarity in the industry! Upon the initial deposit of £10, players will benefit from a 100% bonus up to a total of £300, and this does come with a 30x wagering requirement. This deal is an excellent introduction to the casino, and a chance to really enjoy and explore the site as a new customer!

Mobile & App

A great mobile experience is essential, and Casumo has this covered with a dedicated mobile app, designed to work on both iOS and Android devices. The sportsbook is a real treat here; users can filter the search function, so you only see the sports you need, and it is possible to custom build your very own bet, all from the convenience of your device.

Licensing and regulation

To ensure total safety, security, and peace of mind, Casumo is fully licenced and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, as well as the Malta Gaming Authority.

Customer Support

In the event of an issue, players can get in touch with an expert via the Live Chat feature, and assistance is also available via email.

Payments

Offering a range of payment methods is essential, and players need to be able to access their wins at a moment’s notice, as well as make deposits quickly and easily. There are a variety of payment options available, and these include Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Apple Pay, Pay By Mobile, Paysafecard, and MuchBetter.

Reliability

Ever since its inception in 2012, Casumo has developed a strong reputation for great games, lucrative bonuses, and excellent customer service, which helps them stay reliable and relevant in a crowded market.

Betopin’s Verdict

Whether you are brand new to the world of sports betting, or a seasoned pro just looking for a chance, Casumo is a top choice. With a vast variety of sports, tempting promotions and deals, and close attention to detail, they have provided a robust and established site that puts the needs and preferences of its customers at the forefront of their business.
