free $10 on

Speaking of ALC. They did give me $10 yesterday. A nice lady from ALC named Nicole called me and asked if I'd heard about Geosweep. I said I had. Then she asked if I wanted $10 to play it for free. Of course I said sure to the freeroll.

I logged into my account and there was the $10 as promised. The offer was $7.50 for a geosweep ticket and $2.50 for my own use. Since the $10 was transferred in I was free to do whatever I liked with it including just straight cashing it out. But in the spirit of the offer I did get a geosweep geo in Labrador. I used the other $2.50 on two random baseball over/unders which had 75% equity.

Interestingly on one game the line was 1.70 on regular proline and 1.75 for the same game on proline stadium. I was quite surprised to see different prices on the same game, so shop around if you're looking to play proline.

That's now $15 of free wagers I've had on without putting in any of my own money. I would recommend to anyone eligible to create an account there just to get the freerolls.

is Atlantic Lotto a scam?

For some reason I visited the Atlantic Lotto site They have been advertising heavily.

So I go to the site. The first thing I notice is like a multi minute loading time despite being on high speed.

Eventually the site loads (hint: skip the extremely lengthy intro video) and you get to the questions. I noticed a couple of things.

First of all there seem to be no spelling or grammar errors in the posted questions. Really, on what is presented as an open Internet forum? Let's be generous and assume the questions are edited before posting. Still it is suspicious.

I search on "all categories" sorted by "most recent". Yet day after day there are no new questions posted. Now you might think that's because nobody is asking questions. That is just not true. I submitted two questions a week ago. about the incorrect usage of the term "gambling" (the correct term is "gaming"); and a tough question about what a rip off to the players the proline over under payouts are with a 25+ percent house cut.

No response. I'm wondering if the posted "questions" are just softball shills. I have yet to see a really embarrassing or uncomfortable question to ALC posted to that site.

Kool FM Saturdays

The last few weeks I've been enjoying listening to Kool FM on weekend mornings. They have classic American Top 40 with Casey Kasem.

On Saturdays there's a 70s encore from the same calendar week. On Sunday mornings it's an 80s encore. The 80s is pretty good but the 70s one is great. It's entertaining and lol to listen to. The charts consisted of bad singer/songwriter, bad soul, and bad disco. How did these songs become hits? I can't believe people went to Sam the Record Man and paid good money for the singles, or phoned the radio stations and asked them to play this stuff. But apparently they did. Of course within the noise there are few gems, songs that are still great today. The combo of the lolbad and the still greats makes it enjoyable to listen to.

Well if you're up and around on some weekend morning then I highly recommend to turn on 96.5 Kool FM.


I resurfaced on facebook for a little while lately. I was talking to a friend who mentioned his brother, who is also a friend, had bought a motorcycle and posted pics. So I signed in to have a look. The Harley is a beauty I'm jealous but good for him. There have been some tweaks and improvements on that site but all in all I didn't miss much and I'll be planning to drop off again pretty soon. After rejoining pretty much my first act was to delete two off my friends list, getting the number down to 123 now. The correct number is probably somewhere around 100 but that's good enough for now.
