Sports fans everywhere are gearing up for one of the biggest sports events of any given year. Most will watch in viewing parties, either at home, at a friend's, or perhaps in a sports bar with fellow fans.

Until the events of this year, I was a member of Club Pogo for 10 years, and I loved it. After getting into the camper for the summer, I decided not to renew, for various reasons. One was an unreliable internet connection, and another is that I would need to go back to Internet Explorer to continue to play the games there, and that I did not want to do. Lastly, after all those years on the site, during my tenth year, my debit card was hacked through Pogo's parent company. So, that was the final deciding factor, for me. Luckily, my card company was good. Hence, I've been looking for something new for a while.
Though this one carries less variety in its games (no board games, bowling, Plants vs. Zombies, etc.), I found Vegas World to have a similar platform, and I can use it on Chrome, my regular browser. It is a social site, as well as a game site. Even so, I found the social platform of this one to be more complex, though it is still easy to use. You can throw parties and invite friends, picking a lounge or other gathering place, or your own suite. Yes, you get a suite to be at home in! You can ask for "charms" from guests, for entry to your party, if you like. These boost your winnings when you play games. You can also offer "charms" to friends or fellow players, just because. There's a chat feature available, too. Chat when you want, or don't.
The games offered are primarily casino style. The main options are: BlackJack, Multi-player Poker, Video Poker, Solitaire, Slots, Bingo, Fringo (a unique, bingo-like game), and Sports. Each main category then has numerous games you can play within it. As you play more, you unlock new games, so you can always have something fresh.
I especially enjoyed the Bingo, Fringo, and Solitaire games. Of course, BlackJack has always been a favorite of mine... and slots... and, well, I did actually like them all! I also had no issues whatsoever with "freezing" or slow connections, so this was a joy.
These are not games played for money. You play with tokens. Initially, I had some concern that there may be hidden fees, as with some platforms. However, I found it easy enough to get tokens by winning them. There are also a number of ways to get bonus tokens. Just for signing up and saving my avatar, I started out with 150,000, tokens, which was plenty. You are also awarded free tokens for your first log-in each day, with a bonus for logging in seven days in a row.
Even after "purchasing" (with the free tokens) a new outfit and new hair for my avatar, I was able to double my original amount of tokens in a couple of hours of play. Now, I have enough that I am considering moving her into an upgraded suite! Maybe more clothes, first. I'm not sure yet.
Gems are another form of currency on the site. Yes, you can purchase gems, if you so desire, but you are not required to. You can even earn gems through simple tasks such as watching short videos, etc. There is also a paid VIP upgrade option, which offers additional perks and includes a particular amount of gems, according to the package you desire. You can then use your gems to purchase tokens and/or charms. In this short afternoon of play, I earned 13 gems total, for watching a video and confirming my email address.
I never had to enter a credit card or any other form of payment information for any of what I did today. I wasn't blasted with ads, either. I love that. There are still so many more complexities to Vegas World, that there is no way I could touch upon them all here. However, it is too easy to use not to try it to find out!
One final thing I'd like to note, is that you will also find the occasional sweepstakes or instant win available in Vegas World. I liked that, too!
Overall, I'm a fan!
You can play this game any day, right here, through the link at the top of this blog, or HERE. Enjoy!

Since our holiday plans changed, with my sons deciding to go out of state to spend it with relatives, I decided to take a working holiday. This has resulted in two new pages, and a new look for the blog! I've kept it close to the same theme, so it will still be the familiar blog you know, but with an updated and more modern look. I may be doing some tweaking here and there, in the days and weeks to come, but for the most part, what you see here today is the new look. I hope you like it!
I am also happy to say that I have added a disclosure page, which is something I've been meaning to do for some time now. I'm sure that everyone knows, as with any job at all, that blogs need to make income. This page just let's you know that this blog does, too, and tells you some of the ways that it may be doing so. Each post may generate a different form of income, so there is no one way to describe it. However, I've done my best to cover the ways that any given post may do so.
I have also added a page to play some fun casino-style games! Though these are played with tokens, and are not actual casino games played for cash, you still must enter your birth year to play, as you must be a legal adult. I've found it a lot of fun to play! Plus, you will find the occasional sweepstakes or instant win game offered, in addition to the games. What luck! Look for my review of it on Monday.
You will find both of these new pages in the tabs at the top of the blog.
I hope you've had a wonderful holiday!
Wednesday, December 23, 2015
I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday. I will be taking a few days off from blogging to enjoy the holiday, myself. You will still see me here and there, on Twitter and whatnot. However, for the most part, I will be enjoying some holiday time.
In the meantime, here is a little holiday cheer for you!

Since I've had a bit of a dry spell since moving into the new house, I thought a few instant wins might up the ante. So far, since being here, I've won $5 off Fruit of the Loom in the latest Quikly, $1 off movie tickets from Fandango, and Snickers garb for an Xbox avatar, valued at $1.99. Though I do appreciate these wins, too, this is far less than what has been usual for me.
Hence, today's sweeps are in hopes of bringing in a little prize rain, to end this dry spell! But, what the heck. Maybe the wins are like the mail, and just haven't caught up to me yet...
In any event, a good instant win is better than a scratch-off ticket! You don't have to go to the store to buy it, and, well, you don't even have to buy it at all. You just get to play! What fun for a Friday.
Bud Light Super Bowl Coin Toss Sweepstakes
* Grand prize is a three night trip for two, February 5th-8th, 2016, to San Francisco, CA. Includes air fare, accommodations, and Super Bowl tickets. Total ARV up to $11,900.
Instant win prizes:
* 10 - One Bud Light Super Bowl 50 cooler. ARV $50, each.
* 10 - One Bud Light Super Bowl 50 pitcher. ARV $6, each.

Chunky Super Bowl 50 Instant Win Game
You can also win these prizes by checking for a winning message on the inside of the lids of specially marked cans of Campbell's Chunky Soup. To enter without purchase, click the "No purchase entry" tab at the top of the entry form. The grand prize portion of this sweeps is over, so you will only be playing for the instant win prizes, which are as follows:
* 1,000 - One $50 NFLshop.com gift code. ARV $50, each
* 50,000 - One 19 oz. can of Campbell's Chunky Soup. ARV $2.99, each.
According to the rules, you will be notified by U.S. mail, or by email if you win this, so there is no "instant gratification validation screen" (as I'd call it). I also could not find how the winners are determined for this portion of the game. Generally, an instant win game will have random, computer-generated "win times." A regular sweeps will usually have a random drawing, after the sweeps is over. Hence, I'm not sure that I'd agree that this is an actual instant win game, unless you get the soup. However, I'd imagine they'd know, since they did name it that.
I found no entry limit stated. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 or older. Ends February 8, 2016.
Dew General Instant Win Game
* 5 - One $500 Dollar General gift card. ARV $500, each.
* 10 - One $100 Dollar General gift card. ARV $100, each.
* 50 - One $20 Dollar General gift card. ARV $20, each.
* 1,050 - One $10 Dollar General gift card. ARV $10, each.
One play per person per day. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 or older (19 in AL and NE). Though the rules state that this game ends March 1, 2016, the entry verification page says it ends December 31 of this year.

Fatal Exchange by Cindy M. Hogan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was another fast paced, action packed book in the Christy Spy Series. I had read Hotwire, so was anxious to read this one, as well. It certainly did not disappoint!
The main character in this book is a young woman by the name of Christy Hadden. She isn't just any young woman, though, she is a talented spy. She's been through a lot to get where she is today, and it has made her strong and tough. Still, she shows her youth with an impulsive nature, that tends to get her in a good bit of hot water every now and then.
I thought Christy's character had become a bit more sophisticated in this book. She seemed to be a more adult version, having grown, with more experiences behind her. At the same time, her personality was still intact, and she is just as strong-headed and determined as before.
The complexities in this book were amazing. Set in Paris, with a pickpocket ring central to the plot, there are oodles of familiar scenes, even if you've never been there before. The descriptive passages flow together so seamlessly, it felt to me like I was sitting in Paris, watching the whole scene unfold.
The details of the spy work are enough to keep it interesting, yet not enough to get boring. The action and suspense are what keep the story moving along. And it does move along. Christy and her team have a lot of advanced training, and that makes it all look so easy. Yet, they all encounter dangerous situations, that only their loyalty to one another can save them from.
Of course, there are still those romantic tensions, with the forbidden romance between Christy and her handler, Jeremy. They can't, they mustn't, they won't... or will they?
This was a good book, and fun to read!
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my impartial review.

Somehow, my schedule has gotten all out of kilter this week. Along with this, an old back injury flaring up again has now forced me to get some extra rest. The side benefit of this is that the extra rest has been releasing the two tons of stress I've been carrying around (which likely caused the flareup to begin with), with all that I have and have had going on, so this is a plus!
Hence, today's post will be short and sweet!
Rafflecopter entry. Ends December 31...

RCA Magic Moment Generator Sweepstakes
Wednesday, December 9, 2015
Today offers a veritable smorgasbord of sweeps prizes! Feast your eyes on the more than 1,300 prizes offered in these sweeps! Such a variety, too. Cash, new TVs, gift cards, pizza, a new mattress and bedding, and so much more!
If you could pick a favorite, which would be yours? At this point, though I actually enjoy doing household tasks, I think mine might be the year's worth of cleaning service. It would give me the extra time I need to take care of a lot of other things that still need to get done, with the move and rebuilding and whatnot.
Yet, as I always say, any win is a good win, so I'd be happy to win any of these, for sure!

Today's sweepstakes are an eclectic mix. Each is unique, which keeps the game fun and interesting. One of the many things that I really enjoy about playing sweepstakes is the staggering amount of creativity that sweeps creators put into their games. Each sweeps is its own game, there is no one cookie cutter version.
Of course, there are standards set, and each must be governed by the legalities and laws that set the rules. This keeps it safe and fair for all who play, as well as for sponsors and others. Even within the U.S., each state can have its own sets of rules, too. This, I'd think, in certain cases, must take an extensive amount of scrutiny for sweeps creators to cover all of them (as for a national U.S. sweeps, with prizes that could be governed by said laws).
Still, even within the standards and rules, there is a lot of room for interpreting how any given game is to be structured. What will be its theme? How will it be played (instant win or weekly entry, for example)? What will be its prize tiers? How many winners will there be? What will the odds be? As I see it, seemingly, there must be nearly endless interpretations to create a sweepstakes with.
I would like to be a fly on the wall, watching the creative process as a sweepstakes is born and becomes a game. I bet it's fun! Well, then again, it's probably a lot of hard work, too. Maybe it's just much more fun to play the game...
