The differences between lotteries worldwide
June 29th, 2020 under Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


Lotteries date back to the mid-1500s, when King Francis I of France, and Queen Elizabeth I, introduced them to raise funds for their respective states, but still to this day, they are an enjoyable, and thrilling, pastime for millions of people around the world. And, come on, how many of us haven’t dreamt about winning the massive jackpots involved? Some of us even go as far as googling which mansion, or super-yacht we’re going to buy with our winnings before the draw has even been made!

However, playing your national lottery once, or twice – whatever your preference! – a week can get very tedious. Well, thanks to sites like Mega Lotto, for example, you can now play over 20 of the best different lotteries from the world, all in one place – what’s not to love? Read on as we take a look at the differences between the best lotteries from around the globe!

Lotto Max – Canada

Lotto Max is one of Canada’s largest lotteries, with its highest jackpot pay-out reaching a whopping $65m – one of the biggest ever in the country! Single lines – which are made up of seven numbers – start from little as $3, and draws take place twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, with jackpots starting at $10m and climbing up to a jaw-dropping $100m. That’s not all! When the jackpot reaches the $50m mark, additional prizes of $1m are offered.

Playing Lotto Max couldn’t be more simplistic. All you have to do is follow these three straightforward steps:

1. Pick seven main numbers between 1-50
2. Purchase your ticket
3. Match all seven numbers to win the jackpot

Of course, if you don’t roll-in all seven numbers, then not to worry, as prizes start from as little as $5 for three numbers, right to 2.5% of the jackpot for six – which is $1.25m if the jackpot is $50m, for example.

Powerball – United States

The Powerball was launched in America in the early 1990s, and it’s one of the giants in the lottery world. Powerball jackpots start at a huge $40m and have no upper limit – meaning punters can win not only millions, but billions! The US game boasts a world record pay-out of $1.5b, which was shared by three extremely fortunate players. Tickets cost slightly more at $3.50, and draws are made twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Playing the Powerball is slightly different to the Lotto Max, but you can still get involved in three easy steps:

1. Pick five numbers from the main pool between 1-69
2. Pick one further number between 1-26 – this is your Powerball!
3. Match all five numbers and the Powerball to scoop the jackpot!

Again, you don’t need to match all six numbers to win a prize. Rolling in just the Powerball will land you the smallest prize of $3.30, whilst landing five numbers will win you a whopping $834,000!

EuroMillions – Europe

The EuroMillions is Europe’s biggest lottery, with jackpots often unmatched by each country’s national version. Since the Euromillions first started back in 2004, it has quickly become one of the world’s favourite games, and that’s largely down to its mouth-watering jackpots! With a top-prize cap of €200m, people around Europe are sent into a frenzy to purchase their tickets for the draws – which take place every Tuesday and Friday. There are also a further 12 secondary prizes at stake in every draw.

To play the EuroMillions, you need to:
1. Pick five main numbers between 1-50
2. Pick two Lucky Stars between 1-12
3. Match all five numbers, plus your Lucky Stars, to win the jackpot

Well, what you waiting for? Lotteries from all around the globe are at your peril!

This beary cute video is what we need during this rollercoaster ride we’re on
June 1st, 2020 under Awesome Videos, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MngUvfyhfo&feature=emb_title
Amusement park Walibi Holland has been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but now they are getting ready to open up again. Before they do, they decided to let 22 oversized teddy bears go on their rollercoaster ride Untamed. Surprisingly the ferocious animals were tame as they went up and down in speeds that are normally too much for the average human to bear.

What did the teddies do when the ride stopped? They hibernated with their honey.

Seriously, doesn’t this video give you hope? It is the positive thing we need to see in all of this negativity.

However, since I grew up watching horror movies and love creature features, I have to write. Is it wrong that I wanted to see some of them fall out, and get caught on the metal as they made their way down to the ground? Therefore, leaving a trail of white stuffing all over the place. It would be snowing teddy bear guts in Holland.

Take a musical stroll through Central Park on Apple TV+
May 31st, 2020 under Apple TV+, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


The people behind Bob’s Burger have a new animated show on Apple TV+, and Central Park something to sing about. I mean, sing-along with because it is also a musical. Each episode features songs that will get stuck in your head.

Birdie (Josh Gad) is the narrator of the story, and he is the busker at Central Park. However, the story is not about him. Instead, it is about the Tillerman family. Owen (Leslie Odom Jr.) is the park’s manager, and he lives there with his family. His wife, Paige (Kathryn Hahn) is a writer for a newspaper that can be found on the NYC subway because that is where the readers leave it. She wants to write newsier stories, and she will get that chance thanks to her son, Cole (Tituss Burgess).

Bitsy Brandenham (Stanley Tucci) is like Leona Hemsley. She lives in her high-rise across from the park, and she hates that empty lot. She is in real estate, and she sees all the buildings and stores she can build there. Therefore, she is going to do everything in her power to get the most famous park shut down.

Before she can do that, she must find her dog. She is offering a huge reward to get him back. What no one knows is that Cole has found the pup, and he wants to keep it to himself.

Since no one knows that Cole has a dog, people from far and wide are coming to the park to find the rich pooch. All the foot traffic is destroying Owen’s flowers, so he wants to find the dog first. What is he going to do when he discovers his son has the puppy all along.

There is a fourth member of the Tillerman family. She is Molly (Kristen Bell), and she is experiencing her first crush. Her first kiss will be something she wants to throw away.

Talking about garbage, we will get a whole episode about that. Yes, it has something to do with the evil Bitsy Brandenham.

If you love Bob’s Burgers and musicals, then you will love this show. Even if you don’t, you are still going to adore it.

They also capture some of the stuff that makes Central Park different from any other park. And I am not talking about the good things!

Even puppies like when a bedtime story is read to them
May 28th, 2020 under Animals, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


You know, how you can calm a child down by reading them a bedtime story? Turns out you can do the same thing to golden labs. Tim Perzyk shared a video of nine puppies being soothed by a talking purple dino (not Barney) reading a book to them.

This is all the cuteness we need today. How can you watch this and not getting all the good feels?

I am so inspired by this, I am going to start reading my cat books. Maybe it will calm her down too.
