Today I can say that I know that feeling, that feeling makes you feel like you are high on life and there’s nothing I could compare it to. I don’t honestly know what I’m going to do with the money, it’s just nice to know that I am now financially safe for the rest of my life.”

One of the developers who continues to release innovative slots on a monthly basis is Net Entertainment, and this week they announced that “The Wish Master” has now gone live across all of the casinos that boast their software.
The Wish Master is a new slot released for the month of May. The game is designed around the iconic world of Aladdin, you are put in the position of the Genie while spinning the reels.

So that is exactly what we added to The Wish Master and we believe that it’ll be our most profitable slot yet.”
NBC announced the shows that they’ve canceled and renewed for 2014/2015 Season. Dracula is one of the shows that have been canceled this year. NBC noted that this television show was somewhat of a dream project for Bob Greenblatt, Chairman for NBC Entertainment. He hoped that the show could bring in a vast audience regardless of the substance abuse problems that the main action, Jonathan Rhys Meyers had through the course of the one season that Dracula ran.
Bob Greenblatt made the announcement through a statement saying, “During the course of the one season that Dracula ran it wasn’t able to bring in a large amount of viewers. It was actually one of our lowest rating shows which is a shame as I hoped that Dracula would be more popular than any of the new shows we brought in for the 2013/2014 Lineup. Jonathan Rhys Meyers did an incredible job while performing as Dracula and owes credit towards his incredible performance.”
It doesn’t come as a shock that NBC had to cancel the show. The majority of those who watched Dracula thought that the acting was poor and rightfully so, the main actor behind Dracula has a substance abuse problem and his shows in his face, acting performance and more. Mr. Greenblatt had to be professional and respect the actor due to union laws. NBC also canceled a series of other shows such as Community and Hannibal. The first season DVD will be released this August with extra behind the scene footage at your local electronics store.
