We all have little things we do to pass the time when we're bored - for me, it's when the hubby is on the computer and there's rubbish on TV, that's when I take to my phone or tablet to play games to alleviate my boredom. Typically I play an assortment of the above games, mostly Two Dots and Plants vs Zombies at the moment.
Then there's the other danger, browsing Amazon and eBay and buying stuff we don't need (the lightning sales were a killer!). I've also started doing the lottery again since I started my maternity, as they say, you have to be in it to win it!
Then there's the silly games we (secretly) play in our homes when no one is looking, mine isn't so much a game, but I do like to pretend I'm a very skilled singer, mostly singing Stereophonics songs at the top of my lungs :P No, I don't use a hairbrush for a mic :)
The people over at Vera & John are also on a quest to rid the country of boredom with their #BreakingBored campaign. The nice thing is about playing their sort of games (casino, bingo etc) is that you do stand the chance of winning money while you play, where the kind of games I play (above) I don't get that chance. They have loads of different themed games like Game of Thrones, Hitman etc, and the traditional table games (i.e. roulette). One thing I liked is that you don't have to actually gamble if you don't want to, you could just 'pretend' and 'play for fun' - a nice touch that lets you see how the games work :) Almost like a 'try before you buy' without risking any money.
As well as that, if you create an account they'll give you £5 credit, 100% deposit bonus and 30 free spins on the Boomanji slot machine :) If you want to see their funny video about the silly things we do to rid ourselves of boredom, you can watch it here :)
