Weekend Fun- Gambling and More

As late autumn approaches in the Netherlands and pretty much the rest of Europe, we tend to spend more and more time indoors. Days are shorter and colder so understandably we don’t feel like going out for a walk or even to socialize. But being at home doesn’t have to equal being bored. If you can’t think of doing anything else but binge-watch series on Netflix, read on, as we are going to discuss alternative ways of spending your weekend. 

An iGaming expert from Holland, Jered Beugelink gave us a few ideas on fun programs that will surely cheer you up.  

Gambling for fun is enjoyable. It combines excitement and entertainment and on top of it all, you even have a chance to win real money! In the past, if you wanted to play casino games, you had to dress up and visit a brick-and-mortar casino. Nowadays, it is a lot easier and more convenient to play online poker, roulette, or slot games as you can simply gamble at home. 

All you have to do is pick a reliable casino from a review site such as https://onlinecasinoes.nl/ as these casinos all accept players from Holland. Set up an account in minutes and off you go! If you are not ready to wager money or you only want to gamble for fun, you can try the games in demo mode. This way you are not risking any money, but of course, you can’t win any money either. 

Gambling during the weekend is even more fun than during the week as this is the time when most players visit their favorite casino. Over the weekend, you will always find a blackjack table where you can join since a lot more live dealer games are available. And who wouldn’t prefer gambling at home in their comfy space?

  • Colour in a coloring book

Some of us feel that during the weekend we should detox from computer and phone screens. If you have neck or shoulder pain because of spending 8-10 hours a day in front of the computer or your eyes are playing up from too much screen time, go offline and do some coloring. Colouring books are available in all different themes, and no, you don’t have to have artistic skills to complete the drawings. You will be surprised by how relaxing coloring is! It is comparable to meditation. It will relax your mind and help you concentrate on future tasks. 

  • Create a family photo album

Probably you have hundreds of photos on your phone or on the memory card of your digital camera safely in the drawer. Chances are you will never look at your less recent photos until the media they are stored on becomes obsolete and your photos are gone forever. You can spend hours over the weekend going through old pictures selecting the best ones. You can easily edit them on your computer (e.g. Microsoft Photos) or on your phone. Print the best ones and create an old-school photo album. You can then keep it on your coffee table and pick it up every once in a while to savor those memories. 

  •  Bake a cake

In our hectic lives, we rarely find time to do something non-essential, such as baking a cake. Baking is creative and fun and it will fill your house with a lovely sweet smell. If you have small kids at home, they can also partake in the process. Kids usually love to do the kneading of the dough or if they are a little older they can have a go at decorating the cake with frosting or other edible decoration. 

  • Complete a jigsaw puzzle

Jigsaw puzzles are not new inventions and yet, they don’t seem to go out of trend. They come in all different shapes. Some of them are harder to complete than others. If your idea is to spend several days completing one, go for one with at least 1000 pieces. Once you are done you can frame it and put it on the wall as decoration.
