Five minutes of fun online

We all need a break from the routine every now and then, and for me, I’ve found that taking five minutes to do something fun and trivial online can give me just the little pause that I need so I can go back to my usual daily routine feeling refreshed and ready for action! Many players are choosing to gamble online these days, with a whole host of online games and live casinos, you can take a little time out without even having to leave the comfort of your own home.

Here are my top three games that I’ve discovered to take a break with.


I’ve never been good at remembering the rules to card games, but blackjack is one that I’ve recently tried out and realised there’s not much to remember! You just have to get as close to 21 as you can with your hand, without going over, and bettering the dealer’s hand at the same time. I won at 32 red blackjack online, but sadly I was in practice play, so I didn’t actually win any real cash that time! There are hundreds of different casino games on the 32 Red site, but blackjack is the one that appeals to me the most as it’s so quick and easy to play. If I’m looking for new sites to play on I’ll use a site like New Casinos Finder.



There are so many different places to play bingo online, and it’s another quick and easy one to play. You don’t have to make any decisions when you play bingo, you just choose a card and hope that the numbers on your card come up first in the number calls. As you don’t need to think to play, it can be a great way to relax while being entertained. Bingo only costs a few pence per game online, and there are now also lots of free bingo games where you might win real cash prizes. Some people have certain games during the week that they always play, but I tend to dip in when I’m in the mood, and play the next game that’s available.


There are heaps of different Scrabble-like apps available and I’ve got a couple on my smartphone. I have games on the go all the time, and I get a reminder when it’s my turn on any of the games. Some of the games go on for weeks, but only take a few minutes each time you actually play. The word games are great for keeping your mind active, and I think I’ve expanded my vocab quite a bit since I’ve been playing them.
These are just a few different ways to take time out online. Of course, there are plenty of other choices out there, and you could spend your first five minute break looking at other games on offer, but the ones mentioned above are certainly a great place to start!
