Slot machines are the most versatile casual games of all time. Invented over a century ago, they are there wherever you look: in casinos, in pubs, at gas stations, and all over the big online. People play them for fun on their smartphones and computers, and for real at All Slots Online Casino, where they have a massive collection of games to try. Slot machines can be inspired by an incredible variety of things, from video games to movies, TV series, myths, even toys and nursery rhymes. Sometimes, the characters that serve as an inspiration for a slot machine are quite unlikely, or even surprising, like in the case of the games below.

Thor

Thor is one of the most popular deities ever – and not only on the big screen. He was popular even before the first issue of the comics telling his story were published – especially in the Germanic cultures of Europe. While his popularity was at its peak in the Viking times, he is one of the gods never forgotten. And he is the protagonist of several slot machines.

Thunderstruck and its sequel Thunderstruck II are among the most popular slot machines at the All Slots Casino. The games are not inspired by the Thor movie (the first game appeared years before Thor made it to the big screen). Instead, it depicts the god as he is described in the Poetic Edda – a blond giant with a massive hammer capable of shooting lightning bolts on his enemies. Yes, the comic book (and movie) character is strongly inspired by the original myths.

Hades

Hades is often considered an evil Greek god – but nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of being a fallen angel, Hades is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon, and he became the ruler of the Underworld (the Greek equivalent of heaven and hell) by pure chance. He is actually a fascinating character, utterly fair, and quite dark – but his darkness is caused by his dwelling place’s darkness and depressive nature.

In Hot as Hades, a slot machine recently released by the All Slots Casino, Hades is depicted as an overall nice guy. His only concern seems to be making the most of his eternal rule in the Underworld – he dives head-first into pools of molten lava, he flies around using his invisible jet pack and playing with his three-headed puppy, Cerberus.

Agent 47

A casual game inspired by a hit video game? Well, unlikely as it may sound, it happens in the world of online casinos. One of the most interesting characters to serve as a slot machine protagonist is Agent 47, cloned and raised by a secret organization and trained to be the perfect assassin.

Agent 47 is the protagonist of one of the most popular slot machines at the All Slots Online Casino. Inspired by Square Enix’s successful stealth video game series, it mixes mystery and wins in a unique combination, with the black suit, the tools of the trade, and big wins all over its reels.

Making Money with Binary Option Trades

Binary options have gained the reputation as a get rich quick scheme. This is simply advertising designed to appeal to anyone looking to make good money with minimal investment. In principle, it is actually possible to make a fortune very quickly from binary trading. However, in practice it takes more than luck to place the right trade each time.

To generate funds you will need to purchase a binary option trade. This is a contract between you and the broker. You buy the contract which states that the price of a specific share will move in a certain direction. Every trade has a specific expiry time, if, at the end of the expiry time the price has moved as you indicated then you can receive a good rate of return. As a trade can last just sixty seconds it is possible to place many trades throughout the day. If you are right then you can generate a significant income through the course of the day. Of course, it is difficult to get every trade right but, in theory, you could get rich quickly.

Important Points

When you place a trade you will either lose your capital or earn an income. The percentage you can earn remains the same regardless of the funds you place on a trade. The more funds you wish to generate the larger the value of your initial investment; eighty percent return on $100 is $80, but on $10,000 it is $8,000.

However, do not be deceived by the broker’s statement that you can generate this amount every time you trade. If you win the broker must pay you from their own funds, if you lose then they take your funds. The fact that brokers continue to trade, shows that they win more times than they lose.

This does not mean it is not possible to generate an income; you should ensure you choose a reputable broker and understand the basics of binary option trades.

Your Approach

The key to creating your own get rich scheme, although it may not be as quick as you hoped, is to develop a strategy. This can be done by educating yourself on how binary options work and devising a set of rules which you will need to stick to when you trade. It is essential to keep your emotions away from your trades. Always restrict the amount of funds you will commit on any one day and to any one trade. Choose your trades by studying the markets or responding to signals you trust and, by being consistent you will be able to make money purchasing binary options. And before starting your binary options trading career – take some time and read binary options trading guide

Online Shopping Makes Saving Easier Than Ever

No matter where you go, you see advertisements for sales and specials that can save you money, but more often than not, you’ll end up spending far more than you think you’re saving. See a dress you like? Just click the ‘add to cart’ button a few times to fill up your shopping bag, and boom! You’ll have a new wardrobe at your doorstep in a matter of days.

You can fall into a trap of spending too much, so be careful! Here are a few ways you can limit your spending and find the best deals when shopping online:

Search For Coupons Before You Buy

If you know you want to buy a product, spend a few minutes searching for a coupon! The effort is minimal, and the savings can be tremendous! For example, if you know you want to buy a new pair of glasses, search for glasses coupons online and you’ll find some great deals! Right now, a quick search on Groupon shows that you can get 20% off your order, or even better, buy one, get one free! You can save half on your glasses purchase simply by spending a minute searching for a coupon. What a time to be alive!

Set A Monthly Shopping Budget

If you’re prone to spending lots of money online, prevent yourself from going overboard by limiting your monthly shopping budget. If you are under one month, allow yourself to spend a bit more the next, but if you’re over your budget this month, you will have to limit yourself next month! A bit of spending is healthy, just be prepared to

Add Items To Your Shopping Cart and Come Back Later

When you think you want to buy something, add it to your cart, and then take a walk or sleep on it. Later, see if you really need that new pair of shoes or collectible item you were about to buy. If it’s a necessity, you’ll go ahead and purchase it, but if it’s more of a want than a need, you might have given yourself some time to avoid an unnecessary purchase and saved your money!

Profitable Tips Every Restaurant Owner Should Know

Posted by Daniel | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 31-08-2015

Doing the right things to ensure your restaurant is profitable should always be your top priority as a manager or owner. But sometimes, we can be overly giving, which can quickly plummet revenue. You have to think as a business owner, which means keeping an eye on credit card fees, growing food prices, fickle markets and so on. To help you stay on the right track with your profits, here are a couple of tips to keep in mind:

  • Avoid automatically serving up water. Giving out water to your customers without them asking could prevent them from ordering other drinks, like alcohol, sodas, milk, tea and so on.
  • Tactfully promote profitable items when guests first sit down. Have servers recommend complementary, yet profitable items with the guests’ orders.
  • Keep watch of how much is being thrown away or given out for free. You’ll likely find small items like crackers, butters, creamers, jelly and iced tea lemons are disappearing too fast. These are cheap, but can quickly add up.
  • Add items to your menu that are profitable. Aside from having your waiters promote your most profitable food choices (based on market conditions), you should also include them on your menus. Remember, your menus are your number one selling tool.
  • Buy important items in bulk. Having a reliable supplier that offers bulk deals is important for every restaurant business. This gives you the chance to save money and prevent the need to order multiple times out the month.
  • Bundle together meal parts, such as the appetizer, salad and entree. Having these combos will improve guests’ dining experience and maximize money spent.

With these simple tips, you can easily increase your revenue and cut back on unnecessary spending.

How to make money online without any investments?

Posted by Daniel | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 25-01-2015

There are two ways to balance your budget – either through saving by spending less or by making some extra cash each month to cover for your expenses. Saving might sound easier, but often you realize that you are already at the limit, and you can’t afford to reduce your spending any more. If this is the case, there is nothing left but to make an extra buck. Some methods need an initial investment – like getting involved in a multi level marketing scheme or starting to trade Forex from home – but there are others that don’t. I will try to present some of these below.

1. Write articles and sell them

There are so many blogs and other websites out there, with one thing in common – they need quality content to grow. The content for personal blogs is written by their authors, but there are niche blogs – publications that focus on a specific topic – that often call on outsiders to provide the much needed articles. This is where you come in. Choose a topic – preferably one that you are well informed about – and create articles about it. Personal finance, business, investments, home improvements and DIY decorations or life hacks – these are popular topics nowadays.

If your articles are good enough, you will be able to sell them through various venues – websites like Fiverr, Gigbucks or Dollar3 for example, that allow you to sell your products or services for a specific amount. Take a look, gather some ideas and get started. And when you have the funds, you can create your own website and take things to the next level.

2. Take surveys for cash

This will not make you huge amounts of money, but surely beats mobile casino games when it comes to profits. Companies are always in need of feedback from their customers – you, me, anyone else. This is why they hire market research companies that are able to provide them with the much needed information, and these companies will happily pay you for your opinion. Depending on the length and complexity of a survey, you can earn between a few cents and a few bucks for each. It will not make you rich, but in the long run it can provide you with enough extra income to invest in something more fruitful.

Sometimes the companies don’t pay you in cash, but in coupons or products. Coupons can be used for saving cash when shopping, while the products – if you don’t need them – can be sold, adding a few extra bucks to your monthly budget.

Beginner’s Guide To Forex Trading

Posted by Daniel | Posted in Investment | Posted on 15-09-2014

Trading on the foreign exchange markets, better known as Forex trading, is one of the most popular in the world and has probably benefited more than any other market from the trading allowed to smaller investors by the Internet. Forex trading basically means that foreign currency is bought and sold by a trader in the hope that a movement in the foreign exchange market will increase the value of a specific currency over another. The advent of 24 hour trading that has taken place since the Internet brought investing into the homes of everybody and everybody with an Internet connection has led to trades being made on currencies from around the World.

One of the major reasons the Forex market has become so popular with traders from around the World is the fact it has become one of the least volatile available, with an average movement each day of less than 1 percent for most currencies. The lack of volatility means these markets can be used for both long and short term investments that had, in the past, made this market one of the most important for large investors, such as banks, hedge funds and mega rich individual investors.

In Forex trading, the investor purchases an amount of currency in the hope that they will later be able to sell it for a profit, which means the invested money can be moved between different currencies to build a profit over time. The market is also one of the simplest to gauge as the investments made on a large or small scale have little impact on a day to day basis. Even the largest investment made by banks and hedge funds can only move the value of a currency by a small amount, movements are instead largely based on the long term prediction of the state of the overall economy in a specific country.

The investments made in Forex trading can be done for any length of time, with some investors moving their funds around in just minutes to look for a major profit. Others gamble that a currency will rise over the future months and take a long term view of Forex trading.

Calculate The Amount Needed To Retire | How Much Do I Need To Retire?

Tags: ,

Trying to calculate the amount of cash savings and other assets you’re going to need in place so that you can enjoy your upcoming retirement? You’re not alone. There are loads of financial planners’ advice columns available to learn from. Each of them have their own specific recommendations, but there’s something you should know: Nobody can tell you “the best” way to calculate your retirement amount. It’s not possible! Here’s why

How much do I need to retire comfortably?

You can plug your information into any online retirement fund calculator, and get many accurate, precise monetary amounts spat back at you. That’s all good – but basically worthless. You see, when you plug in those variables into those calculators, YOU are guessing at future contribution amounts. You are dictating the age when you want to retire. You are guessing the amounts you’re going to faithfully contribute. And you are assuming nothing catastrophic happens in your world, or in the financial markets realm. That’s a lot of guessing to come up with such specific numbers. Don’t you think?

Calculate Retirement Amount: Simple Example

Assume that you are 45 now, and that you would like to retire at age 65. That means you have 20 years to save and invest. You “guess” that you will live to be 80 years old, meaning you will need enough in your retirement fund to last you 15 years (80 – 65). You “choose” that you will need $30,000 annually to maintain your “chosen” lifestyle. $30,000 x 15 (years) = $450,000. Now, at 45 years old, you have 20 years to accumulate $450,000 in your retirement fund. That’s $22,500 per year. Simple mathematics, right?

But wait a minute: that’s almost all choosing and guessing! If you can foresee the future, and know that you definitely going to meet all your retirement fund investment goals, then you’re completely amazing! Most people simply can’t do it. Here’s why:

  •  You have no knowledge of or control over financial markets conditions.
  • Stock markets crash
  • Currency rates fluctuate.
  • The Prime Rate can change at any moment.
  • The amount you choose that you will need annually may have a completely different real value at your chosen retirement age.
  • You may or may not be able to make your intended contributions.

Getting the picture now?

The truth about calculating your necessary retirement amount?

Even if you are an incredibly detailed, strategic, determined and consistent person, there will be events and happenings that will occur – things you will not be able to control. It certainly doesn’t hurt a thing to use a retirement planning calculator. Go ahead: plug in some variables. Experiment with different input amounts. It’s sort of fun – and it gives you a somewhat solid basis to plan your retirement on. You just have to remember that life will happen.

Sometimes you will probably fall short of making your contributions. Other times, maybe you will exceed your intentions. In the end, as long as you’re actively planning and making the contributions you can, you’re going to be just fine. Relax and enjoy…

Don’t Order Your Checks From The Bank

In order to save some money there is a great option for you.  It won’t cause you any suffering due to the savings, meaning, I am not telling you to stop eating out or to sell your prized possessions.  All I am telling you do it start ordering your personal checks and business checks online! It’s that simple.  You were probably expecting something big.  While it is something small and you won’t be saving tons, it’s something easy to do so why not make the move.  No, you won’t be able to quit your day job with this kind of move, but it’s a start for your savings and it’s without breaking into any sort of sweat.

So many of us are used to doing what we have been doing for years, therefore we don’t put much thought as to why we go about doing certain things.  A good example of this how you go about getting your checks.  Before just about everything was so easily accessible online, if you wanted checks you called up your local bank and ordered them.  Now there is a far better option.  So even if you have been ordering checks for the last twenty years from the bank, I’m telling you that you are far better off buying your checks online.  The main reason, as I mentioned earlier is the savings that you will find with buying your checks online.  When you buy checks online you are buying straight from the check printers themselves.  When you buy checks from the bank on the other hand, you are paying the bank to take your checks to the checks printer.  The bank offers you checks as a service to you, but they are really not in the business of printing checks.  Therefore when you purchase checks through them, they cost you more because you are paying the middleman too. This may not save you big bucks, but you will be saving with only increased benefits, quicker turnaround time, customized checks, QuickBooks checks and so much more.

How can salespeople win contracts?

Those who work in sales constantly need to look to win new business. Doing so, however, is not always the easiest of tasks, especially as many organisations remain cautious about spending money in the challenging economic climate.

Luckily, there are plenty of things salespeople can do when meeting with clients to increase their chances of converting leads into new business. First of all, let’s look at the pitch you deliver. This is crucial in terms of determining whether or not a would-be client wants to do business with you, so the importance of planning exactly what you are going to say really cannot be underestimated.

If you are not already doing so, it is a good idea to think about using an ‘elevator speech’. This business concept is based on the notion that a businessperson needs to introduce themselves, the product and/or service their organisation offers and why they deserve attention in the time that it takes to travel several floors in a lift.

Ideally, such speeches should not last any more than a couple of minutes, so you may need to put in a significant amount of practice to ensure that you don’t spend too much time talking non-stop. Otherwise, you might find that listeners’ minds will start to wander and they don’t pay attention to what you have to say.

Regardless of the company you work for or what you are trying to sell, you should remember that virtually everyone you present your speech to will ask themselves “what’s in it for me?”. As such, you need to be certain your pitch highlights precisely why you (and your organisation) are worth people’s time and money.

While putting in plenty of practice is vital in coming up with a well-prepared pitch, a good salesperson should never deliver speeches that feel robotic. Instead, you ought to be prepared to tailor your talk directly to would-be customers and, of course, be ready to answer any questions that are put to you.

As a pitch ought to capture people’s imagination and make them eager to learn more about what you offer, you should spend a little time considering what things potential clients will be most interested to find out more about. How much a service will cost is often a common query among would-be clients, so it’s definitely worth having these figures to hand.

With any luck, your speech should do enough to convince a business to sign up to receive your organisation’s offering or at least encourage them to set up a second meeting in the future. Regardless of the outcome of the initial meeting, it is a good idea to give those you meet a corporate gift before you leave their office.

There’s a wide range of promotional gifts, though it is perhaps best to offer goods that executives and other decision makers will be encouraged to use on a regular basis. This could include, for example, business card holders, fountain pens and paperweights. No matter what you choose, make sure your company’s logo is clearly visible on the items you give out. That way, your brand, organisation and even your sales pitch is likely to resonate long after the meeting has ended.

Studies from the British Promotional Merchandise Association show that 56 per cent of people feel more favourable about a company that has supplied them with a promotional product. So, it could be that being given a gift gives the additional push needed to buy whatever it is you are offering.
