i’ve played a fair few games online. mostly mine have been things like mmorpg games but i’ve also placed a few bets or tried online bingo. with the current climate the way it is and people looking for ways to occupy themselves it makes sense that a few might turn to casino type sites or other online gaming that may or may not cost you money. there are lots of offers going around at the moment and many sites to look at such as OnlineCasinos.co.uk and it’s important to look around, play smart and be cautious. if it stops being fun, stop and seek help.
personally one thing i’ve got caught up in is, as i said, online rpg style games which have given players the option to buy starter packs. i’ve also paid out for mini in game purchases on app games too. when it comes to things like bingo games i’ve usually just taken advantage of the free offers available or the bonus pay ins which give you an extra £10 or so to play with. i very rarely do this though and almost never win my money back but that’s the thing isn’t it really. sometimes i think i’m just not lucky enough but thankfully the desire to keep adding more funds just isn’t there with me.
i think for me the appeal is in shortcuts such as speeding through a part of a game or getting a headstart. i’ve also been pulled in before for exclusive bonus content. looking back that money really could have been better spent but at the time i guess i was having fun and more importantly it’s never put me into a damaging position or gotten to the point where i can’t stop. i’ve seen a lot of friends have great success with things like matched betting but honestly i’ve never been able to get my head around it – possibly because i don’t really gamble.
right now we are all striving for a bit of fun, a bit of connection and communication. many people might turn to online casinos as a way to talk to others and let off a bit of steam – particularly whilst we can’t really have big shopping sprees right now with so many businesses closed. if you play games online or feel like swapping your weekend from the bingo hall to an online game just familiarise yourself with the rules and playstyle. you might consider using some cashback sites when paying in to get some bonus cashback too. i’ve done this before and have been able to get most, if not all, my money back through these cashback bonus sites so it’s worth checking out.
i’ve written a post on other things you might want to try and do with your household whilst in isolation if online gaming isn’t your thing – you might find something useful there! whatever you’re doing right now to pass the time whether it’s having a bit of fun with online games, a bingo night or getting through your to be read bookshelf – like i’m tryng to do – then i hope you stay well and safe through this strange time.
