Wheel of Fortune Free Slots Machine

When it comes to slot games based on television shows, IGT Gaming is the leader of the industry. Their headquarters are in the United Kingdom, with operating headquarters in Rome, Italy; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Providence, Rhode Island. With 13.000 employees around the globe, they are specialized on government-sponsored and commercial gaming industry with casino games, slot machines and lottery. IGT has the copyright of almost all of the television shows out there – Wheel of Fortune slots is just one of them.

As the name suggests, this is a video slot game based on the famous television show Wheel of Fortune. Transition is almost perfect, with the clever use of color palette and symbols, you feel like you really are at the studio. Graphic quality is good. Do not expect fancy explosions and jaw-dropping animations of course, this is a family oriented television show after all. Art style and graphics are more than enough for the game’s genre. Wheel of Fortune can be played with real money or as a free slots game, both are possible.

Gameplay

Wheel of Fortune is based on the television show with the same name, as we mentioned. Television shows is a rare theme amongst online casino games – it is hard to produce a well-done one. Wheel of Fortune is a fine example amongst this genre; it follows almost every rule in the television show and makes you feel like you are one of the contestants in the studio. It is an old game actually – first produced in 1996. But it is a popular one too, for nearly 20 years players kept spinning the reels. It is easy to understand why – Wheel of Fortune is a familiar brand and even if you are not familiar with slot games, you can play it with ease.

Wheel of Fortune slot machine has 5 reels and 5 paylines. As for features, it contains wild symbols, scatter symbols, multipliers, bonus rounds and a bonus jackpot payout. Bonus round is called “Double or Nothing Wheel”, as you can remember from the television show.

How to Win

There are five reels with three slots in them – you need to spin the reels and land the same symbols on a payline. You can change the amount of paylines from the “Lines” section of the game and play with less lines if you want. You can also set the coin value from the “Line Bet” section, it changes between 0.10 and 2.00. Your maximum bet amount equals to 25 coins though, so betting with the maximum coin value doesn’t mean you are playing with the maximum bet levels, watch out for that difference. We recommend starting with maximum coin value and move on to the maximum bet value afterwards. Also, do not lower the amount of paylines, lower values do not mean higher winning chances.

As for symbols, there are eleven of them. There are no playing card signs (a.k.a numbers and letters) so that is a plus. Each symbol has a different payout value, as can be seen in this table:

As you can see, most valued symbol is the Wheel of Fortune logo. While playing with maximum bet amounts, 5 of them awards the player with 50.000 coins. This is why we recommend playing with maximum values always – they pay the most.

Free Wheel of Fortune also has special symbols too, which we will mention below.

Bonus Rounds and Free Spins

There are 4 different special symbols and features, which are:

Wild Multiplier. This symbol is shown with the green colored W, I, L, D letters on the game board. Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except the special ones. It also acts as a multiplier, which means doubles the payout of any winning combination it completes.

Bonus Jackpot Symbol. You can see this one at the upper-left corner of the reels. It acts as an accumulator, whenever you land this symbol on the reels, the number of credits displayed on the symbol are added to the Bonus Jackpot of the same color. There are three levels/colors. Yellow adds 50, Orange adds 75 and Red adds 100 coins to the accumulator. You can win the amount located in Bonus Jackpot accumulator only during the Wheel Bonus Feature, which we will explain below.

Wheel Bonus Feature. This is the highlight of the game actually. You need to land at least 3 Bonus symbols to activate this feature. Bonus symbols only appear on reels 1, 2 and 3. As you can guess, this is the Wheel of Fortune itself and you get multiple chances to spin it. Each spin awards you with extra coins. But after each spin, four of the slices are replaced with a “Bankrupt” slice. You have a choice: You can take your winnings and end the round or continue spinning. There are 72 slices as in the original television shows, so your chances are higher than it seems. If you hit one of the “Jackpot” slices, you win the amount accumulated in the Bonus Jackpot. This round lasts until you hit the “Bankrupt” slice. But do not worry, we have another feature suited for this situation – look below.

Double or Nothing Wheel. This is the second bonus round and activates only if you hit the “Bankrupt” slice during the Wheel Bonus Feature. You are offered with a consolation award first: Will you take it or risk it? If you choose to risk it, you get to spin the Double or Nothing wheel. This wheel has only two kinds of slices: Double and Bankrupt. If you hit Double, your consolation awards get doubled and you return to the main game. If you hit Bankrupt… You lose your consolation award too.

Conclusion

Wheel of Fortune is an old game with a fan base – but it still is one of the most successful slot games you can play for fun. We liked it, it has a fast gameplay and feels familiar in every way, offers high winning amounts too. There are other Wheel of Fortune slot game titles out there but this one is the closest to the original TV show. No download is needed for the game, so give it a try – you won’t be disappointed.

Microsoft Offers Free Laptops In Bid To Migrate Consumers To Windows 10 #ebooks #free

Microsoft Offers Free Laptops In Bid To Migrate Consumers To Windows 10

The deal is straightforward. Simply bring in your functioning Windows 8 laptop to any one of their brick-and-mortar retail stores across the U.S. and Canada. If the company is not able to perform the upgrade by the end of the business day, you will leave with a brand new Dell Inspiron 15 notebook computer.

The specs of the notebook have not been announced. The most basic model available from Dell features a dual core Intel Celeron Processor, Windows 10 Home, 4GB of memory, and a 500GB hard drive. This model retails for $249 USD, and represents the lowest possible specification that users may receive.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella speaks on stage during We Day at KeyArena. (Photo by Mat Hayward/Getty Images for We Day)

Although this sounds like the deal of a lifetime, be sure to read the fine print. Microsoft states that To be eligible for trade-in, you must own the qualifying device, device must power on, battery must hold charge and not be required to be plugged in to operate, and be in fully functional, working condition without broken/missing components, cracked display/housing, liquid damage, modification(s) or have device warranty seal broken to be considered working. You will also need to make sure you drop your computer off before noon, giving the Microsoft reps enough time to perform the upgrade.

Surprisingly, Windows 7 users are excluded from this offer. NetMarketShare reports that Windows 7 represents 49.05 percent of all currently installed operating systems. By excluding these users from the Windows 10 upgrade promotion, Microsoft could miss out on the final opportunity to incentivize these users to upgrade.

For users that do not meet the qualifications for the free laptop, there is still an offer on the table. Microsoft will recycle any computer that does not meet the requirements for the Windows 10 upgrade, and will offer you $150 towards the purchase of a new computer from their retail location.

Windows 7 users who are not interested in trading in their laptops still have 13 days to take advantage of the free upgrade program. Simply by launching Windows update, the upgrade process can be started. If you are not quite ready to perform the upgrade now, you can reserve your Windows 10 license with a little preparation work. Microsoft has confirmed that once you activate your free Windows 10 license, this will remain tied to your Microsoft account. Users are able to revert back to their previous operating system, saving their license for use at a later date .

Microsoft claims they have over 200 million monthly active devices on their Windows 10 platform. They later clarified this point to mean how many Windows 10 devices have been active within the last 28 days. Compared to their old method, measuring the number of installs that have taken place, this represents a more accurate measurement of the Windows 10 market share. Users who reverted back to their old operating systems are no longer counted.

It is worth noting that active devices also includes Xbox One consoles, as these technically run their own unique version of the Windows 10 operating system. Xbox One sales have exceeded 20 million units. This leaves 180 million active desktop and notebook users on the Windows 10 platform. Microsoft announced a target adoption rate of one billion users. Since we are skirting only 20 percent of this target, even an amazing promotion such as this is unlikely to help them meet this goal before the July 29 deadline.

Users who fail to take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade before July 29 will be forced to purchase their upgrades. Windows 10 Home will retail for $119, while the Professional version will retail for $199. Given the significant costs to users after the promotion ends, Microsoft will need a large increase in new PC sales in order to meet its targets.

The New York Times

Text of President Obama’s Speech in Hiroshima, Japan

Doug Mills / The New York Times

May 27, 2016

The following is a transcript of President Obama ’s speech in Hiroshima, Japan. as recorded by The New York Times.

Seventy-one years ago, on a bright cloudless morning, death fell from the sky and the world was changed. A flash of light and a wall of fire destroyed a city and demonstrated that mankind possessed the means to destroy itself.

Why do we come to this place, to Hiroshima? We come to ponder a terrible force unleashed in a not-so-distant past. We come to mourn the dead, including over 100,000 Japanese men, women and children, thousands of Koreans, a dozen Americans held prisoner.

Their souls speak to us. They ask us to look inward, to take stock of who we are and what we might become.

It is not the fact of war that sets Hiroshima apart. Artifacts tell us that violent conflict appeared with the very first man. Our early ancestors having learned to make blades from flint and spears from wood used these tools not just for hunting but against their own kind. On every continent, the history of civilization is filled with war, whether driven by scarcity of grain or hunger for gold, compelled by nationalist fervor or religious zeal. Empires have risen and fallen. Peoples have been subjugated and liberated. And at each juncture, innocents have suffered, a countless toll, their names forgotten by time.

The world war that reached its brutal end in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was fought among the wealthiest and most powerful of nations. Their civilizations had given the world great cities and magnificent art. Their thinkers had advanced ideas of justice and harmony and truth. And yet the war grew out of the same base instinct for domination or conquest that had caused conflicts among the simplest tribes, an old pattern amplified by new capabilities and without new constraints.

In the span of a few years, some 60 million people would die. Men, women, children, no different than us. Shot, beaten, marched, bombed, jailed, starved, gassed to death. There are many sites around the world that chronicle this war, memorials that tell stories of courage and heroism, graves and empty camps that echo of unspeakable depravity.

Yet in the image of a mushroom cloud that rose into these skies, we are most starkly reminded of humanity’s core contradiction. How the very spark that marks us as a species, our thoughts, our imagination, our language, our toolmaking, our ability to set ourselves apart from nature and bend it to our will — those very things also give us the capacity for unmatched destruction.

How often does material advancement or social innovation blind us to this truth? How easily we learn to justify violence in the name of some higher cause.

Every great religion promises a pathway to love and peace and righteousness, and yet no religion has been spared from believers who have claimed their faith as a license to kill.

Nations arise telling a story that binds people together in sacrifice and cooperation, allowing for remarkable feats. But those same stories have so often been used to oppress and dehumanize those who are different.

Science allows us to communicate across the seas and fly above the clouds, to cure disease and understand the cosmos, but those same discoveries can be turned into ever more efficient killing machines.

The wars of the modern age teach us this truth. Hiroshima teaches this truth. Technological progress without an equivalent progress in human institutions can doom us. The scientific revolution that led to the splitting of an atom requires a moral revolution as well.

That is why we come to this place. We stand here in the middle of this city and force ourselves to imagine the moment the bomb fell. We force ourselves to feel the dread of children confused by what they see. We listen to a silent cry. We remember all the innocents killed across the arc of that terrible war and the wars that came before and the wars that would follow.

Mere words cannot give voice to such suffering. But we have a shared responsibility to look directly into the eye of history and ask what we must do differently to curb such suffering again.

Some day, the voices of the hibakusha will no longer be with us to bear witness. But the memory of the morning of Aug. 6, 1945, must never fade. That memory allows us to fight complacency. It fuels our moral imagination. It allows us to change.

And since that fateful day, we have made choices that give us hope. The United States and Japan have forged not only an alliance but a friendship that has won far more for our people than we could ever claim through war. The nations of Europe built a union that replaced battlefields with bonds of commerce and democracy. Oppressed people and nations won liberation. An international community established institutions and treaties that work to avoid war and aspire to restrict and roll back and ultimately eliminate the existence of nuclear weapons.

Still, every act of aggression between nations, every act of terror and corruption and cruelty and oppression that we see around the world shows our work is never done. We may not be able to eliminate man’s capacity to do evil, so nations and the alliances that we form must possess the means to defend ourselves. But among those nations like my own that hold nuclear stockpiles, we must have the courage to escape the logic of fear and pursue a world without them.

We may not realize this goal in my lifetime, but persistent effort can roll back the possibility of catastrophe. We can chart a course that leads to the destruction of these stockpiles. We can stop the spread to new nations and secure deadly materials from fanatics.

And yet that is not enough. For we see around the world today how even the crudest rifles and barrel bombs can serve up violence on a terrible scale. We must change our mind-set about war itself. To prevent conflict through diplomacy and strive to end conflicts after they’ve begun. To see our growing interdependence as a cause for peaceful cooperation and not violent competition. To define our nations not by our capacity to destroy but by what we build. And perhaps, above all, we must reimagine our connection to one another as members of one human race.

For this, too, is what makes our species unique. We’re not bound by genetic code to repeat the mistakes of the past. We can learn. We can choose. We can tell our children a different story, one that describes a common humanity, one that makes war less likely and cruelty less easily accepted.

We see these stories in the hibakusha. The woman who forgave a pilot who flew the plane that dropped the atomic bomb because she recognized that what she really hated was war itself. The man who sought out families of Americans killed here because he believed their loss was equal to his own.

My own nation’s story began with simple words: All men are created equal and endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Realizing that ideal has never been easy, even within our own borders, even among our own citizens. But staying true to that story is worth the effort. It is an ideal to be strived for, an ideal that extends across continents and across oceans. The irreducible worth of every person, the insistence that every life is precious, the radical and necessary notion that we are part of a single human family — that is the story that we all must tell.

That is why we come to Hiroshima. So that we might think of people we love. The first smile from our children in the morning. The gentle touch from a spouse over the kitchen table. The comforting embrace of a parent. We can think of those things and know that those same precious moments took place here, 71 years ago.

Those who died, they are like us. Ordinary people understand this, I think. They do not want more war. They would rather that the wonders of science be focused on improving life and not eliminating it. When the choices made by nations, when the choices made by leaders, reflect this simple wisdom, then the lesson of Hiroshima is done.

The world was forever changed here, but today the children of this city will go through their day in peace. What a precious thing that is. It is worth protecting, and then extending to every child. That is a future we can choose, a future in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare but as the start of our own moral awakening.

こんにちは。CIE サポート 今村です。 今回は Visual Studio からクラウドサービスを発行する際に、よくお問い合わせを頂戴するエラーについて、解決方法をお伝えいたします。 このポストは、 Cloud services are not available in this subscription の記事を抄訳したものとなります。 Azure のサブスクリプションの権限を与えられたばかりで、Visual Studio 2015 からクラウドサービスをデプロイしようとした際、「このサブスクリプションでは、クラウドサービスを使用することはできません。」といったエラーを見たことはありませんか?(Figure 1) このエラーを直してみましょう。 Figure 1. このサブスクリプションでは、クラウドサービスを使用することはできません。 Azure Service Management (ASM) で管理されたリソースを取り扱うには、そのサブスクリプションの共同管理者である必要があります。 Azure ポータルを確認すると、このサブスクリプションに対して発行操作を行う権限があるか確認ができますが、その際に気を付けておきたいのが、「所有者」というロール(Figure 2)は Azure Resource Manager (ARM) で管理されたリソースでのみ有効であるという点です。仮にクラウドサービスをAzure ポータルで管理していたとしても、クラウドサービスは ASM で管理されるリソースですので、この「所有者」というロールの設定は適用されません。Azure ポータルで設定可能なロールは RBAC と呼ばれ、この設定は ARM で管理されたリソースでのみ有効です。 こちらのリンクより、ASM と ARM のリソースの違いについてより詳細な情報をご確認いただけます: https://azure.microsoft.com/ja-jp/documentation/articles/resource-manager-deployment-model/

Microsoft Japan Data Platform Tech Sales Team 北澤 2016 年 6 月 1 日に出荷開始された SQL Server 2016 新機能の情報も色々な媒体で目にする事も多いと思います。 この記事では、数多くある新機能の中ではあまり目立たないのですが、バッチ処理のパフォーマンスを向上させる SQL Server 2016 の新機能「 INSERT…SELECT のパラレル処理」についてご紹介致します。 「 INSERT…SELECT 」は、 SELECT で検索したクエリ結果を指定したテーブルに INSERT する処理で、バッチ処理などで中間テーブルを生成したり、サマリーテーブルを生成する、という用途で良く使われる処理です。バッチ処理の中で時間がかかっている、と実感されている方も多いのではないでしょうか。 SQL Server 2014 までは、SELECT の部分はパラレル処理、 INSERT の部分はシリアル処理、という動作でしたので、コアを多く搭載したサーバーで、ストレージ に SSD 等を利用している様な環境において、SELECT の部分はコアを使いきれるが、INSERT の部分で コアを使いきれない、という状況になっていました。 SQL Server 2016 からは SELECT の部分も INSERT の部分もパラレル処理になりますので、コアをより有効活用する事ができ、大幅なパフォーマンス向上が見込めます。 実は SQL
