Surprise History Lesson!
You’ve come to Royal Spins Casino to get the very finest of Regal treatment while you play mobile slots like they are going out of fashion. The last thing you’re expecting is a history lesson but here it is anyway. While you enjoy our delightful real money slots let us tell you about the storied past of one of the most beloved if somewhat overworked terms in the entertainment business: the happy hour.
The first thing you’ll notice is that there are very few establishments that limit the happy hour to a single hour. Unless they are already in need of extra bouncers to deal with the lines around the block or because the idea of discounting their wares causes them physical pain. We here at Royal Spins Casino are no different, meaning that our happy hours (with an S) run for several hours. In fact between 3 and 7 PM every Wednesday. We derive no distress from your pleasure, the opposite is true, which is why we are so delighted to offer you as many promotions as we can come up with. We’re here to ensure you are enthralled to play slots online.
For the record, our bouncers may look mean but in fact are some of the nicest blokes you’ll find anywhere under the sun. Please just remember to NEVER ask George what happened to his foot.
The Origin of Happy Hour
Where did this idea of Happy Hour come from? There are two credible and competing theories:
- Bored Sailors
- People looking to wet their beaks before dinner
What shall we do with the snoring sailor?
The way the story goes is that the sailors on the USS Arkansas were bored out of their skulls in 1913. Why they chose that year to not know what to do themselves as opposed to any other year is beyond our comprehension. We’ve talked to a number of sailors and universally they report that boredom is a central part to what it means to be a sailor. If only they could look for online slots UK and relieve their snore fest.
A bunch of homemakers decided to help the sailors out by hosting a weekly happy hour during which wholesome boardgames and other forms of entertainment were offered. They were most certainly not offering access to always-entertaining real money slots and because this was before mobile phones, no one could play mobile slots. It did not take long for the sailors to corrupt this entirely respectable weekly relief from tedium into a debaucherous get together involving boxing, betting and movies. From all we can tell the ladies that started the happy hour continued to attend to everyone’s delight.
Drinks before Dinner
Let’s imagine you look for Online Slots UK and are told that you can’t place a wager. You’d go looking elsewhere for entertainment, wouldn’t you. That’s how people felt going to dinner during the prohibition era in the US. Most dining establishment wouldn’t run the risk of serving alcohol and getting shut down.
Because human being will inevitably find ways to get what they want no matter the restrictions, the happy hour was invented. For you this may be to play slots online. For prohibition era diners this meant going to a speakeasy before sitting down for dinner to get a couple of drinks in. It was a happy hour.
