The counter attack, however, made a hole in the floor, leading to the garbage room, where Luffy fell to, and Monet gives farewell to him, as "he can only escape flying". The flashback detailed the moment his parents left Mariejois, to when they became hunted, and the death of Doflamingo and Rosinante's mother. Note that many games in an online game room are single player only. Marge usually makes Bart do community service to control his wayward attitude. Trebol traps Luffy to allow Doflamingo to kill Law. As the giant toy soldiers attack Luffy and co, Zoro's fight with Pica continues.
On top of that, they had an integral part in the setup of the entire industry, as well as in the establishment of many regulatory institutions. They did not stop creating games, however — today, their catalogue consists of more than a thousand games. If you are interested in online casino gaming, you have undoubtedly heard of Playtech.
They are the hands-down most popular developer of casino games, and their software can be found at a huge number of reputable operators.
Playtech was founded in in Estonia, and today they have over employees all around the world.

Playtech have received many awards, and are among the pioneers of mobile casino gaming.
A multiple award-winning developer, NetEnt are renowned among players for creating casino games of the highest visual and gameplay quality. They are also among the leading innovators in the industry, having created many games that utilise unique gameplay, features, and rules.
However, the quality they provide more than makes up for the lack of quantity. This company sells single games, rather than entire platforms — which means that you can find their software at many UK online casinos. Found in , the company has enjoyed great success and employs more than people across the world. For our first article, we had no doubt that we should give our readers some basic info on what exactly behaviour-driven development really is.
We will try to keep it as casual as possible, in case you are not that much of a technical person yourself. Still, the subject is rather complex, so we cannot guarantee that you will not see some technical phrases and references. For a full overview of behaviour-driven development, you can find a variety of dedicated websites, including this very helpful Wikipedia article. The concept behind BDD is to provide development and management teams with a shared process and shared tools, so that they can effectively collaborate while developing software.
To this end, it combines the basic principles of TDD with object-oriented analysis and domain-driven design, to make the process of creating software as optimized and effective as possible. In its core, BDD is simply the idea that software development should be governed by both technical proficiencies and business interests alike. However, besides the ideological concept, BDD does make use of specialized software in order to achieve the desired goals.
The main tool of the method is simple domain-specific language also known as DSL. Instead of complex lines of code, this language uses normal English words and logical constructs to express how the software should behave. As we already mentioned, BDD is a branch of the test-driven development method, which also uses domain-specific language to convert natural language phrases and statements into executable tests.
We are talking about sentences that start with a conditional word should, given, when, if, etc. If I have two apples And my friend takes one Then I will have one apple. Using this as a starting point, many people and organisations developed BDD development frameworks over the years. In , Dan North coined the most widely accepted definition of behaviour-driven development:.
It describes a cycle of interactions with well-defined outputs, resulting in the delivery of working, tested software that matters. BDD follows the basic principle that each unit of software must be individually tested.
The process usually goes like this:. This basic outline is perfect, because it allows the testing of both high and low-level software, as well as anything in between.
When using the BDD methodology, the tests should be specified in terms of the desired behaviour of the unit in question. This behaviour is basically the requirements set by the business entity that commissioned the creation of the software. BDD is a pretty well-rounded concept, but the developments in the field continue to this day.
Make sure you check back often for the latest news about this great software development method. Casino software has been experiencing rapid development in recent years, and there are even more exciting things coming out way.
In this first post, we will tell you a bit about who we are, why we decided to create this website, and what can you expect to find here.
His life revolves around gambling and he loves gambling with others' lives. He is also said to have been the king of his own holiday, "Bug Day", which eventually fell out of favor, resulting in him moving to Halloween Town in The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Pumpkin King for Gameboy Advance.
He also appears to fear Jack Skellington , as evidenced by their final confrontation when meeting face to face. This fear can be seen to be a result of their first meeting in Pumpkin King , when Jack Skellington destroyed a majority of his bug minions after he attempted to transform Halloween Town into the new Bug Day.
Ironically, Oogie has no skills for gambling; on three occasions he rolls snake eyes, and admits he has to resort to cheating, usually by slamming his fist on the table to change the dice, resulting in a more desirable number. He is also somewhat lecherous, which is evident when he's easily distracted by Sally 's bare and dismembered leg.
According to Lock, Shock, and Barrel , as well as some of his deleted song material which is included in the soundtrack version , he is also very good at making a concoction known as Snake and Spider Stew, though it would seem he tends to use people as ingredients.
Oogie has a rather creative mind, which enables him to innovate the contraptions he has installed in his lair, an equal-parts casino and torture chamber; he also uses them for defense in case of emergencies. Oogie's outside appearance is very simple. He is covered from head to toe in a gray-green burlap sack depending on the lighting , and an obvious seam is visible along the sides. Oogie is quite rotund, with stumpy legs and fingerless arms, a stark contrast to Jack Skellington's gaunt, tall physique.
Like Jack, the "eyes" in Oogie's head are featureless black holes, as is the inside of his mouth. The tip of his head extends outward and flops down, vaguely resembling Jack's Santa hat. On the inside of the sack, Oogie is a huge mass of a variety of different colored bugs. In the movie, Oogie also produces a snake from his mouth as a "tongue" to intimidate Santa Claus by hissing at him. The majority of Oogie's consciousness is held by one, green, earwig-like bug in his head, and it is only by squashing this one that Oogie can be killed.
Although he is the main villain, his role in the film is small. After discovering Christmas Town , Jack decides to put a spin on the holiday season by bringing the joyous holiday of Christmas to Halloween Town.
As part of the plan, Jack orders Lock, Shock, and Barrel to kidnap Santa Claus , whilst he takes the jolly ruler's place in delivering gifts to the children of the world for the night. Though the trio of trick-or-treaters were specifically ordered to leave Oogie Boogie out of the festivities, the trio take a successfully kidnapped Santa to Oogie's fun house, where the sadistic gambler teasingly tortures the confused victim, wanting to have a little fun before devouring him.
Meanwhile, Jack's close friend, Sally , realizes the trouble that's been caused, and rushes to Oogie's lair to rescue Santa. As Oogie begins the process of turning Santa into his latest meal, Sally arrives and uses her detached leg to distract a lustful Oogie. While the boogeyman is distracted, Sally and Santa try to make their escape, only to be caught before they can do so.
Furious by being made a fool of, Oogie captures the two and sentences them both to painful deaths. Back in the human world, Jack's present deliveries were a failure, and the former Pumpkin King was shot down by human military forces after being conceived as a threat.
As Halloween Town mourns the apparent loss of their king, the Mayor announces the tragedy throughout the town on his megaphone, which catches the attentions of Oogie, Sally, and Santa. Believing there's now no one capable of rescuing his victims, Oogie continues onward with his scheme, while Jack who survived the attack awakens in the human world and quickly rushes back to Halloween Town after coming to a realization that Halloween is his rightful holiday.
Without wasting any time, Jack arrives at Oogie's fun house, and successfully rescues Sally and Santa just in time before they fall in a magma pit. A shocked Oogie cowers at the sight of a survived Jack, but instead of surrendering, he triggers his various torture mechanisms to battle the Pumpkin King. As Jack avoids one by one of Oogie's attacks, the latter attempts to make an escape, just as one of his threads loosens.
Noticing this, a furious Jack grabs the thin thread and unravels Oogie's sack, causing a majority of his bugs to fall into the fiery, molten pit, while one, seemingly his brain, is crushed by Santa. His lair was hidden at the bottom of the Halloween phone screen. In The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Pumpkin King , Oogie's origins and the birth of his rivalry with Jack were revealed. As it turns out, he once had his own holiday, Bug Day, or "Crawloween. Jack found out and he defeated the bugs and Oogie.
Oogie survived the battle, learned to fear the Pumpkin King, and was confined to his underground lair. In the video game The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie immediately began planning to seize power and vengeance, beginning with Dr. Finkelstein , who Jack left in charge in his absence. Oogie replaced Finkelstein's brain with one of his own creation that bent the Doctor to his will, and through him tricked the townspeople into making traps for Jack, stating that Jack wouldn't return if they couldn't make an even scarier Halloween for next year.
Oogie's plan was to become the Seven Holidays King, by usurping Jack's position as the leader of Halloween Town and kidnapping the Holiday Leaders for the other holidays: The remaining holiday was Christmas, which he planned to secure himself due to a personal vendetta against Santa.
With help from Lock, Shock, Barrel, and his new army of monsters, Oogie successfully kidnapped the real leaders and imprisoned them in the Oogie Corridor, a series of treacherous subterranean caverns teeming with lava and booby traps. He then had the trio hide each Holiday Door in a different area of the town so that they wouldn't be discovered, and the leaders could not return home. By December 23rd, his plan was nearing fruition, the entire town had been booby-trapped and the citizens were afraid to set foot in the streets.
Jack returns to town in the afternoon on Christmas Eve, shortly before Oogie broadcasts a message saying that he is now the ruler of Halloween Town, which he renames Oogie Town. Jack battles a few skeletons, and after learning the situation from the Three Mr.
Hydes, confronts Oogie's shadow in Town Hall. Oogie loses, but puts it down to beginner's luck, and retreats while promising that they'll meet again, with Jack collecting the Halloween Holiday Door as a result. He occasionally comes on the loud speaker and broadcasts messages while Jack goes to work undoing the damage he caused, defeating the monsters and claiming the Holiday Doors in each area:
