My experience playing at LeoVegas casino

Hey everyone, welcome back. As you already know, I love slots – they’re honestly the best online casino game in my opinion. And, because I’m so passionate about them, I often try out new online casinos. No two gambling platforms are exactly the same. They each have different games, software providers, bonuses, and so on. I recently decided to continue my quest and decided to have a go on LeoVegas casino.

Some of my fellow gamblers had already pointed me in their direction as a good wagering platform to play on. Of course, I’ve also been making my way slowly through the dozens of other recommendations I have. Anyway, I spent the past month obtaining a membership with LeoVegas casino. Read on to learn more about how my experience went.

Playing somewhere reputable

I’ve already mentioned this before on my blog, but it’s worth saying again: play at licensed casinos. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and trouble by following that one rule. To that point, LeoVegas is licensed by the MGA, a gambling authority in Malta. The website started up in 2012, was named “Online Casino of the Year” in 2019, and has a good reputation among players. Once I was confident that I’d be stepping into a trustworthy gambling website, it was time to sign up for a membership.

Welcome bonus

I was honestly surprised – happily so, that is – when I learned about the welcome bonus available at LeoVegas casino. It’s not uncommon to find some websites that have a package available, but this one impressed me. There are 5 parts to the introductory promotion. First, I claimed 20 free spins in a no deposit bonus. All I had to do was sign up with the website, which I planned to do anyway. You know the basics: name, address, and agreeing I’m of legal age.

Then, you can take advantage of another bonus 4 times in a row. Each time, you can enjoy a 100% match on the first four deposits, for a sum of £400 (£100 apiece). And with each of those deposits, you’ll also be awarded another 20 free spins. I decided to do the full welcome bonus and started out with 100 free spin credits and £400. Not a bad deal at all!

Slots, slots, and more slots

So I did a bit of digging before I visited LeoVegas casino, because I wanted to know what sorts of games I could really expect. A few review sites confirmed that there are 1500 games available. That is quite a huge selection, considering many of the top casino sites still boast somewhere around 500 games.

Of those 1500, there are about 1000 slots, or two-thirds the entire gaming collection. I was positively tickled, if I’m honest. That kind of variety promises a great experience for fellow slot players. To support that kind of vast collection, leovegas casino is partnered with some of the top software providers, too. Some names of note include NetEnt, IGT, Microgaming, Betsoft, and plenty more. They even have a huge portion of progressive jackpot games to play (and I had an extra £400 burning a hole in my pocket).

A grand website for slot lovers

Overall, I had a really great tie gambling at this platform. It was plenty large enough to accommodate my tastes, and many of the games I already love were readily available. I would definitely recommend LeoVegas casino for my fellow gamblers. If slots aren’t your thing – but you still want that welcome bonus – I assure you that there are plenty of table and card games, too.

Question for the Reader

Today, I actually have a question for you. As you may already know, coffee is one of the few things that I miss about modern society. Sometimes I really crave it, to the point where I wonder what I can do to get some. I want to stay where I am, and I have no interest in going back to the big city, but I want to be able to drink some coffee once in awhile. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to travel to the nearest town and try to barter in order to get some coffee. I do not want to tap into my savings in order to buy it, because dealing with money is one of the things that I wanted to escape when I left the city.

However, I was wondering if maybe I would be able to trade a pelt for some coffee. Would this be something I would actually be able to do? Would it be appropriate? You can let me know exactly what you think in the comments, but I can tell you that I want coffee enough that I am willing to resort to something like this in order to get it. Though I love being away from it all, coffee is one of the things that I wish I was not away from. I don’t think it would be cheating when it comes to my commitment to stay away from the bustling modern world if I were to trade a pelt for some coffee, but I want to know what you think on this matter.

My experience playing at Bob Casino

Not many people know this, but the Bob from Bob Casino is the same Bob as the one from BGaming’s Bob’s Coffee Shop. However, he is a bit more decent in Bob Casino as I’m sure he wouldn’t be allowed to promote a lifestyle of smoking weed every day at a casino. However, once you have played the slot machine, you can never see Bob in a different way ever again. It’s just a pity that Bob Casino doesn’t offer the slot, but the casino is very fun to play at none the less. Me and my friends sometimes come here to have a laugh with Bob.

Casino bonuses

This casino offers the best welcome bonus of all casinos that I have played with so far. It consists of three parts. After your first deposit and by using code BEHAPPY, you get a bonus of 100% up to €100 and 100 free spins. Then, after your second deposit, you’ll receive a bonus of 50% up to €200, if you use the code JUNGLE. Lastly, after your third deposit and when using the code BOBONELOVE, you will receive a bonus of 50% up to €200 and 30 free spins. Bob also offers a promotion calendar on which you can see which bonus is coming next and when. In addition to that, the casino also organises many tournaments and has a special rewards program. Every player who wagers real money is automatically enrolled in this program. It has 22 levels that each come with their own rewards.

Casino games

When it comes to non-slots, there are two categories, being live games and blackjack. But no matter which one you’ll choose, you will be led into an area with roulette, poker, blackjack, baccarat and other games. The other games section includes original Evolution Gaming games and some video poker games. In the other sections you can find many versions of the games in a regular or live casino adaptation. So there is plenty to enjoy for every wallet and a lot of different languages.

Slot machines

At Bob Casino you can find slots by over 30 providers. Which is obviously a great amount that needs to be broken into categories. The ones chosen by Bob are new games, slots and bonus buy. It’s a pity that we don’t have a popular games section here, as it’s my favorite but we can probably get the same effect when we choose slots and look at the first games on offer. And sure enough, we will find classic games like Wolf Gold, Book of Dead, Jammin’ Jars and Narcos. We also find new games to explore like 2 million B.C. (which is a lot of fun) and 7th Heaven. Never a dull moment at this casino.

Customer support

This casino, like the other two has a Maltese license which means that it’s very reliable. It also has to have good customer support to comply with licensee obligations. This is the case, because you can reach the always friendly and helpful team 24/7 by email and live chat. If something goes wrong, which is unlikely, you also have complaints procedure ready to be used. It is not very common that someone uses it, so that’s why.

Payment methods

My favorite payment method, Trustly, can also be used in this casino. Along with a number of other methods like credit cards, prepaid cards, e-wallets and ecopayz. All these options are free to use and transferred instantly. Nowadays these things take a fraction of the time they used to take in the beginning of the online casino era. The limits are also very flexible, which means that you can start out small or become a high roller straight away. You choose whatever you feel most comfortable with.


One of the main reasons that me and my friends became interested in playing at this casino is obviously Bob. And even though he’s a lot of fun, everything else at this casino is great to. Starting with the welcome bonus and other rewards and ending with the huge amount of games. So if you like to be entertained with a capital E, this is definitely the place to be.

Skinning Animals

Many people think of hunting as just a way to get some food. Though this is a major reason to go hunting, it is not the only one. You could also use the skin of the animal to make some pretty nice items. This is how leather and fur coats are made, after all, and people even in the city enjoy those.

I haven’t yet figured out how to skin an animal for leather. It’s actually a lot harder than I thought it would be, and it is hard to preserve the skin of the animal without ruining it during the process. However, I have basically mastered how to skin an animal for fur. It has been a pleasure or learning how to do this, not to mention that it has given me all sorts of comfortable clothes, as well as blankets to keep me warm on cold winter nights. I have made some pretty nice rugs out of this fur as well. If you are ever interested in doing this, you should know that it is probably a lot easier than you think. It was easier than I thought it would be. Now, I just need to master how to do the same thing with leather, and I’ll be all set in this way.

My experience playing at Pronto Casino

Pronto Casino was actually the first casino I tried out on my own. With my friends I usually play at another casino, which I will review on another page. I came to this casino through an ad I saw on a Dutch site. The reason I visited this website is because a friend of mine send me a funny meme and I wanted to know where it came from. Once there, I saw an ad that read casino gokkasten and naturally I became interested. I followed the link and arrived at Pronto Casino, where I learned that casino gokkasten means casino slot machines. As if faith had sent me there.

Casino bonuses

Upon entering the Pronto Casino website, I immediately noticed that it was a bit boring. I mean, besides the games you don’t see much else and the design is quite simple. What appealed me enough to start playing there anyway is the fact that you don’t have to sign up and can play immediately. You don’t even need to provide any contact details if you don’t want to. This made up a bit for the design and a lot for the fact that there are not many bonuses. You only get a welcome package that entitles you to bonuses after your first two deposits.

Casino games

When you enter the games section, you’ll find a table games and a live casino section that kind of overlap each other. You can find all the famous and popular casino games here; baccarat, blackjack, casino poker and roulette in many different variations and languages. Both in the regular and the live casino versions. Other games you can enjoy include Evolution Gaming specials, such as Monopoly Live and Dream Catcher and RNG’s Football Studio. You can also enjoy a plethora of scratch cards from Hacksaw Gaming, which is a relatively new provider with many original games for who likes scratch cards.

Slot machines

This, of course, is the most important section, the heart of the casino. It might be worth mentioning now that this casino offers a little over 350 games, which is not much compared to other casinos I play at. Good thing is that the slots include actual slots and jackpot games and they each got their own category. I always find the favourites section of a casino to be very telling and I was pleasantly surprised here. The section includes many popular games like Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, Twin $pin, Piggy Riches Megaways, Gonzo’s Quest, Jammin’ Jars and some other games that cannot be left out of any casino. You can be sure to find enough casino gokkasten to enjoy yourself with here.

Customer support

The customer support team is available daily from 10 AM to 12PM through live chat. Of course you can always reach the team by email, but it’s not the same as with a live chat that is not only more personal and efficient, but also much quicker. However, when the agents do speak to you, they are very friendly and helpful. So that’s a good sign. Something else that’s good about this casino is that is has a Maltese license. If you are a beginner, you should always aim to play at casinos with a Maltese license, as these are simply more trustworthy. That’s a pro tip that I always stick to.

Payment methods

Usually when you play at an online casino, you get a lot of different payment methods to choose from. That’s not the case here as you can only pay with Trustly. I don’t find this annoying as I always pay with Trustly anyway and I just find all those other options annoying. The casino has to pay for them and I wonder if anyone actually uses them since Trustly is the best option anyway.


My conclusion on Pronto Casino is positive, but not great. For players who hate having to sign up at a casino, this is the place to turn to. But if you are like me and prefer to receive a lot of bonuses and variety in games you might want to look at other casinos, like the ones reviewed on other pages.

Missing Coffee

Though I love my life out here, one thing I will say I miss a great deal is coffee. I used to drink coffee every single day, to the point where some people might have called me a coffee addict. Of course, I don’t have any real access to coffee out here, and I sometimes wish I did. I have figured out how to make a pretty delicious tea using pine needles, but it’s just not the same. I wouldn’t trade my life out here for the chance to go back into the city and drink coffee everyday, but it is one of the things that I miss for sure.

How to Eat Fish

There are so many different ways you can eat fish. I didn’t realize this until I came out here and saw for myself all of the things that can be done with fish. Before, all I would do when I wanted to eat some fish is just order it at a restaurant or buy it at a store frozen. Now, I know that there is more than one way to eat it.

Though there are many different ways to cook fish, I actually sometimes like to eat the fish raw. However, I would caution you against to doing this yourself. There are many microbes that live within these fish, and you need to make sure safety is a consideration if you want to eat it raw. Of course, there are people who eat fish raw, even in your plugged in modern world. Sushi is very popular, and raw fish is often a very important component of sushi. However, you should definitely make sure that you are doing this in as safe a way as possible if you decide to eat raw fish. Typically, raw fish is safe to eat when it has been frozen first. This is because freezing it will kill off all of the microorganisms that could make you sick if you simply keep it in the refrigerator, which is a more optimal temperature for these microorganisms to grow and reproduce.

However, I do not always like to eat fish while. Sometimes I enjoy cooking it. Sometimes I like to cook it in a pot, but my favorite way of cooking fish is to cook it over an open flame with a skewer. I find that it tastes the best this way, and I also enjoy the process more when I do this. I’m still working out how to bury fish in the ground so that it can properly ferment without animals who live around here digging it up and eating it before I have a chance to get to it.

My experience playing at Spinia Casino

When I entered the Spinia Casino website, a calm came over me immediately. It’s animated, but exactly in the right amount. The first animation you see, shows many heroes of your favourite slots together, like the totem from Aloha – Cluster Pays and a character from wonky wabbits. The game categories and other sections are indicated clearly, which tells you that it’s not very likely that you’ll ever have to ask a question here. I felt at home from the first moment I entered the casino and my friends felt the same. That’s why we usually play here.

Casino bonuses

It starts out great as soon as you sign up. The welcome bonus already consists of two parts: one you get after your first deposit when using the code PINACOLADA and consists of a 100% bonus up to €100 and 25 free spins for Hotline, the incredibly popular NetEnt game and the second part needs bonus code MOJITO which entitles you to a bonus of 50% up to €150 and 25 free spins for Turn your fortune, another great NetEnt game. Then every Wednesday, if you deposit at least €40, you’ll get 50 free spins for Lost Relics. On Sundays you’ll be entitled to a reload bonus, if you use the code AFTERPARTY, of 50% up to €250 and 25 free spins for Cazino Zeppelin. To top it off there are daily races to compete in and there’s a nice VIP program. Every player that wagers real money participates in this program. You start as a rookie and you can make it to the elite.

Casino games

Looking at the games section, you’ll immediately notice the great amount of over 30 providers to choose from. There are 5 categories to choose from in the live casino section, which also includes regular casino games. The categories are as follows; blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker and other games. Within the other games category, you will find special live casino games like Crazy Time and Dream Catcher, but also casino games like Vegas Strip. In the other categories, you will find many regular and live versions of the games, with different bet options and in different languages.

Slot machines

But it’s still all about the slots. Which you’ll find 6 categories of here. Not many casinos have such a nice order for their slots, so it definitely looks inviting. The slot categories are as follows; new slots, popular slots, bonus buy, video slots, classic slots and jackpot. With over 30 game providers in the offer, I am always curious about the popular games. I mean, what would you choose if you had a crazy number of options? Once in the popular games section, you will find the regular games such as Wolf Gold, Book of Dead, VIP Filthy Riches and Chilli Pop. The last game also offers a bonus buy, in case you’re interested. But there are also some lesser known titles in the list like Street Fighter II and The Hive, which are nice to explore.

Customer support

Something that will strike you about the service level on this website is that every page has a FAQ on the bottom with relevant questions and answers. This means that you’ll never have to look far if something is unclear or if you need additional information. If you want to ask another question, or prefer to have a more personal way of asking what you need, you can contact the support team 24h a day via live chat and email.

Payment methods

There’s a number of ways for you to pay at Spinia Casino, which includes Trustly. As you know, this is my preferred method. But I understand we don’t all share the same preferences, so I will give you a list with the other possible options. These are credit cards, e-wallets, prepaid cards and banktransfers.


This for me is the best casino to play at by far. Not only do you get a lot of bonuses and many slots and other games to choose from, everything is also very clear. And the casino looks inviting. This makes it the perfect casino for beginners and also for experienced players.

Bowhunting vs. Gun Hunting and the Joys of Fishing

There are multiple reasons why I prefer bow hunting to gun hunting. Even though I didn’t know much about this when I lived in the city, I have learned since living in the throes of nature that there is a huge difference between the two.

Bowhunting actually requires a great deal more skill and finesse than does gun hunting. Guns are powerful and can shoot at much longer ranges. Though modern and bows and arrows are able to shoot at longer ranges than the bows and arrows of hundreds of years ago, they are still quite a bit harder to use than guns. You need to be able to exercise more skill when it comes to aiming and shooting with a bow and arrow than with a gun. This makes it so that when you do shoot your pray, it is much more of an accomplishment than it would have been if you had used a gun to do it. In addition, bows and arrows are much quieter than guns. A big part of why I came out to the woods in the first place is because I wanted peace and quiet. Guns are incredibly loud, which is not something I need to tell you because you probably already know. A bow and arrow will shoot your prey without disrupting everything else in the surrounding nature and creating unwanted loud noise.

I have also come to see just how wonderful fishing is. Since I love peace and quiet so much, it makes sense that I would love sitting in a boat and waiting for a fish to take the bait. It really allows you to get in touch with yourself and with nature, not to mention everything you learn about the art of fishing itself while you are out there.

Overall, I have found this whole experience to be a very humbling one when it comes to what I have learned about hunting and fishing. One thing that I have learned is how very wasteful we are as humans when it comes to using the gains from the hunt. So much of the meat and everything else that comes with it is just thrown away and not used for anything. I have learned to use everything that the animal has to offer  when I go hunting or fishing. I figure, this animal gave its life for this endeavor, so the least we can do is honor the animal by using every bit of it.
