Maria Casino är kända för att erbjuda sina spelare en rad utav olika online casino spel (för att inte tala om free spins och bonusar), så som Blackjack, roulette och en hel drös med spelautomater t.ex. Det tycks dock som om Maria Casino är redo att ta sin verksamhet till nästa nivå med deras "The Thrill Test" satsning. I kort drag så är det en gratis chans för de som söker efter att få sig ett par välbehövliga adrenalinkickar (lite spänning i vardagen helt enkelt).
För att vara exakt, så är det en chans för dig att vinna en massa pengar. Förutsatt att du klarar dig igenom all de utmaningarna som väntar dig i "The Thrill Test" vill säga. Du måste dock ta dig igenom en rad utav frågor först. Därefter kommer du att flygas ut till ett hemligt testanläggningen, där du (och tre stycken personer till) kommer att gå igenom diverse olika spännande experiment på plats (the thrillometer). Skulle du sedan (mot all odds) klara dig igenom alla test, då kan du åka hem med över 1,000 pund på fickan.
Så, om du bestämt dig för att ställa upp i "The Thrill Test" så önskar jag dig lycka till! Jag tog mig även friheten att bifoga Maria Casinos officiella informationstext om tävlingen:

Maria Casino are well-known for offering their players a wide variety of different kinds of casino games (not to mention free spins and bonuses), like Blackjack, roulette and a handful of Casino slot's machines. However, it seems like Maria Casino is ready to take their business to the next level with their "Thrill Test" contest. So what is "The Thrill Test" all about then? Well, it´s a free chance for those who seek to find some much-needed thrill and adrenaline kicks (you know, to get some excitement in your every day life?).
To be exact though, it´s a chance for you to win a lot of money. Well, at least if you have what it takes to take on the challenges that await you in "The Thrill test". However, before you get a chance to do so you have to answer a bunch of questions first. And "if" you make it through all the questions, and "if" you have been chosen to take part of "The Thrill Test" contest. Then you (and three other people) will be flown out to a secret test facility where you will go through several different exciting experiments on site (the thrillometer). And "if" you would manage (against all odds) to make it through all the thrill challenges, then you just earned yourself £1,000 in hard cash.
So, if you have made up your mind about participating in "The Thrill Test"contest Then I wish you the best of luck with everything! I also took the liberty to add Mario Casino´s official information text about the contest:

It´s time to put your war face on.
It´s less than week left now until Ubisoft´s release of their action/adventure FPS game "Far Cry Primal" to PS4 and Xbox One (the Windows version will launch on March the 1st). And as one might expect, the hype is pretty high. So it´s going to be really interesting to see if a stone age (the game takes place during the Mesolithic period, 10,000 BCE) version of Far Cry will be well received among the fans.
However, so far so good I would say. As I like the idea of playing as a tribal warrior in an open-world sandbox environment (yes, you have the ability to tame wild animals and use them against your enemies). You will even be able to become a leader over your own tribe, and you can make meele and short-ranged weapons as well (you need the right kind of resources in-order to create weapons though).
So I really hope that "Far Cry Primal" will become a truly fun and cool game. We will know for sure on the 23rd of February, because that´s the date that the game launches to PS4 and Xbox One.
I don´t know if you´re just as interested in sports as I am, but if that´s the case. Then I´m quite sure that you have followed the Lillehammer 2016 Youth Olympics event with great interest right? Well, that´s what I´ve been doing for the last five days. Any ways, as I was saying. The Lillehammer 2016 event ends on the 21st of February (that would be this Sunday). So we're getting closer to the finals and closing ceremonies for each day that goes by now. Personally, I like speed skating, snowboard, ice hockey and alpine skiing the most. As I find those sports to offer a lot of excitements and action.
Nevertheless, It´s only the best of the best that will get the gold medals (the winner takes it all). So it´s going to be really interesting to see the final score and who wins what this Sunday. I´m cheering for Sweden of course, since I´m Swedish. However, I´m also cheering for Finland and Norway (as I see them as our blood brothers and sisters).
And speaking of sports, winners and Lillehammer 2016, Samsung (who are one of the official sponsors of the event) has started their own hashtag movement called "#TheOnlyWayToKnow". And not only that, Samsung has also released a TV-ad based on that hashtag as well (as seen in the movie down below). So what is the TV ad and hashtag all about then? Well, it´s about teen athletes tackling self-doubt. That they should believe in themselves, and just give everything they have. In the matter of fact, these are Samsung´s own words on the matter:
"All athletes, especially teen athletes, face a debilitating amount of doubt and pressure. To help fight these ever-present constraints of teenage life and empower teens to commit to sport, Samsung has partnered with the Lillehammer 2016 Youth Olympics Games.
Together we fight these said pressures and celebrate young athletes everywhere.
We may all face pressures, uncertainties and doubt. But in the end, we also all believe the same thing: #TheOnlyWayToKnow is to try.
Maybe this is the end
Maybe I'll just be forgotten
Maybe I'll only ever be a beauty queen
Maybe I'm just different
Maybe this is the worst (Maybe these are the worst years)
Maybe this is too much
Maybe I should just give up
Maybe this is a phase.. my limit.. torture
Maybe I'm just tired
Maybe this will be what stops me
Maybe I'll start listening
Maybe I'll NEVER listen
Maybe I don't need you to like me
Maybe this already pays enough
Maybe I'm already enough
Maybe this will be what pushes me
Maybe I'll be the best
Maybe this isn't the end
Maybe this is just the beginning
The only way to know is to try."
So, are you ready for final days of Lillehammer 2016?
Be aware of identity theft dear Swedes!
Technology has always been very close to my heart, as I pretty much grew up with computers and video game consoles around me. And as time went by, technology (and the software) just got more and more advanced. That is of course a good thing, as advanced technology has improved our life, society and planet in many different kinds of ways (cancer research, space exploration, solar cells and much more). However, there is a down side to advanced technology as well. For example, just take the fact that in Sweden, over 67,000 Swedes had their identities stolen last year.
This is of course some really unpleasant news, but it could have been prevented. In fact, if the Swedes had signed up for Adressändring´s address watcher service (adressbevakaren). Then their identities would most likely not have been stolen. And Adressändring talked about this in their latest commercial “the photo booth” (Fotobåset in Swedish). So “hopefully” more Swedes will be aware of the risk of identity theft now, because it´s no joking matter to have your identity stolen by someone else. So don´t be naive, get in touch with Adressändring and get their address watcher service as soon as possible!
Jag är troligen inte den enda som tycker att det är overkligt att det nästan är jul nu. Jag menar, det är ju trots allt bara sju dagar kvar tills tomten kommer att ha fullt upp med att dela ut julklappar över hela världen. Och ärligt talat så kan jag redan känna av stressen jag med. Jag har dock redan köpt alla mina julklappar för i år, så den stressen slipper jag iallafall. Påtal om julklappar. Jag tror mig veta minst en julklapp som kan gå hem hos de som gillar tv och dataspel. Eller ja, iallafall om han eller hon gillar simulator spel.
Ja, jag talar givetvis om EA och Maxis "The Sims 4". För sedan EA lanserade spelet i September förra året, så har EA uppdaterat spelet en hel del. För att inte tala om alla DLC´s och expansionspaket som släppts också (du kan dessutom köpa "The Sims 4" via Amazon för runt 40 dollar numera, så spelet är relativt billigt nu för tiden).
Så om du känner någon som gillar att skapa, bygga, utforska och kontrollera digitala liv och världar. Då bör du helt klart överväga att ge bort "The Sims 4" i julklapp till den personen.
I´m probably not the only one who thinks that it´s pretty unreal that it´s almost Christmas now. I mean, it´s just seven days left until Santa is supposed to get really busy with delivering Christmas presents all over the world. To be honest, I can already feel the panic and all the stress knocking on my door as well. I have bought all of my Christmas presents in advance though, and speaking of Christmas presents. I may know of at least one Christmas present that would make a Gamer pretty happy about this year's Christmas for sure (at least if he or she likes life simulator games).
I´m talking about EA and Maxis "The Sims 4", because since the game launched back in September last year. EA has updated the game quite a lot, not to mention all the new expansion packs and DLCs that's been released on top of that (you can also buy "The Sims 4" for about $40 US via Amazon.com, so it´s rather cheap nowadays).
So if you know someone who really likes to create, build, explore and control everything there is in his or her digital avatars life. Then you might consider buying that person "The Sims 4" for Christmas this year.
James Franco and Lenny Kravitz literally slaughtered Guitar Hero Live.
Even though it´s been years since I played any Guitar Hero game (mostly due to the fact that other games have stolen my attention), I have to say that I got quite interested in FreeStyleGames and Activision´s”Guitar Hero Live” (for PS3, PS4, 360, Xbox One, Wii U and iOS). Mainly because I liked the thought of being able to kick out the jams live (and online), as it´s probably as close as I will ever get to play live in front of an audience (don´t judge me to hard, I´m just trying to keep my rock star dream alive).
And I can´t say that I got less curious about the game when I saw the list over songs and artists in “Guitar Hero Live” either. And I´m talking about everything from The Rolling Stones, Soundgarden Slipknot Rage Against the Machine to Lenny Kravitz, and speaking of Lenny Kravitz. I don´t know about you, but I think that Kravitz and James Franco did a really good job in the TV-commercial for “Guitar Hero Live” (at least I found it to be funny and entertaining).
So, is “Guitar Hero Live” any good then? Well, let´s take a look at the games grades shall we?
Xbox One 82/100
Xbox One 81,57%
Wii U 80%
That´s some pretty good grades I have to say, so what about awesome features then? Well, personally I really like the fact that you can interact with your band and the crowd (they will either hate you or love you, depending on if you suck or rock). Other than that, you will also find features such as this in the game:
– Play what you want
– Rock with friends. While one person plays, everyone else enjoys the videos
– Level up and earn rewards
– Enjoy premium shows, like live concerts
– Rock real crowds with real reactions
– Take the stage in a variety of epic venues
– Bring down the house with real, reactive bandmates
And if you like the sound of that, then I´m glad to inform you that “Guitar Hero Live” is out now to PS3, PS4, 360, Xbox One, Wii U and iOS! (and soon AppleTV as well). So, ffor those about to rock, we salute you! \m/
Tre brings free music to the elderly in Sweden. Joy O plenty!
Music is a huge part of our lives, and music is even more important for the elderly. As music brings back memories and the lust for life. That´s great of course, sadly enough though. Many retirement homes are all quite in Sweden. However, that might change now that Tre has decided to offer their services to the elderly in Sweden. As Tre plans to send out 100 packages to retirement homes all over Sweden (each package contains everything needed to start streaming music for free straight out of the box.
For example, Lenovo A10, Harman Kardon Onyxand the music service Deezer). So if you´re a director or manager for a retirement home, then you should most defiantly check out what Tre has to offer for you and your inhabitants. Personally, I think the elderly deserves to have music in their lives (most of them have worked all their lives, so cut them some slack). As it brings them so much joy and happiness. Not only that, it´s really healthy for them as well (mental as physically).
So let´s bring the music back to the old folks =)
Since the launch of the ARPANET (1969, an early version of the Internet that we know of today) the Internet has change "quite" a lot. The big change would come in the early 90s. However, as the public started to get access to the Internet. Me, I still remember the first time that I played Doom over the Internet back in 1994 (on a really slow dial-up modem. It was a "top of the line" kind of modem at that time though) it felt somewhat unreal to be able to play against other real players from different parts of the world.
However, not before 1996 did I get my own modem (a 33.6K modem), and at that time Internet was really small (only Yahoo and Altavista existed as search engines as well). Not only that, there was very few "good" webpages that you could visit (as Internet was still very young and in a development stage). Even so, there´s still some good aspects which I can mention about the mid 90s version of the Internet.
1. Much less spyware, adware, viruses and trojans
2. Most webpages were rather harmless (less porn, hate, scam sites and so on)
None of that can be said about today's version of the Internet. As it´s recommended that you use a hardware (and software) firewall, a maleware and anti-virus program in-order to stay somewhat safe on the web. However, there is actually another solution to get a really safe PC, and that is to use a "all-in-one" security software solution.
If you´re not 100% sure if F-Secure´s Safe is the solution for you. Then you could always download and try the free 30-day trial first.
Like F-Secure´s "Safe" software, for example. Which protects your computer from harm at all times (for PC, MAC, tablets and smart phones). So if you like the sound of that, then you should download and try the 30-day free trial of F-Secure Safe asap! Oh, another thing. I have one more fun story about the old-school version of the web. Back in 1997 I tried to download the demo for Running with Scissors action/slaughter simulator "Postal" on a 56K modem.
It took me almost a whole day to download that demo, and I ended up with a rather expensive Internet bill as well (I'm sure glad that I/we won´t have to deal with stuff like that anymore), but you know what? It was so worth it ;)
