Online slots are very popular right now, which is great, but it does means that there are hundreds of sites to choose from.
It can be hard to know which slot games are best but don’t worry, there are lots of slot review sites to help find the perfect slot games, just for you.

Reading reviews before playing slot games will help give you a feel for the game, see what the graphics are like and also how easy it is to win!

If you’re worried about spending your actual money on gambling games, fear not, we’ve got that covered as well!
You can find slot reviews for free-to-play games as well as paid for versions.

However, if you do fancy a flutter, check out minimum deposit casino India. You could win big for a minimum stake but remember to always gamble responsibly.

Listen To Free Podcasts

As with online courses, there are hundreds of thousands of free podcasts to listen to covering every single topic you can think of.

Head over to the BBC to find podcasts from your favourite TV shows and stars such as Strictly Come Dancing and Graham Norton.

Are you a Zoom fan? If not, why not?! And if you’ve been living under a rock for most of the year and don’t know what Zoom is, it’s a video conferencing program that’s free to use.

So many of us this year has fallen in love with Zoom because it’s so versatile.
Not only can you get together with family and friends, no matter where they live and enjoy a family quiz night or celebrate a birthday, you can also learn meditation and mindfulness with Brown University.

All the Zoom classes are completely free, you just need to register to secure your place for each class you’d like to join.

Join An Online Book Club

Online book clubs are actually a thing and the massive bookworm in me is very excited to know this!

There are many different clubs to choose from, some run by people you may have of like Reece Witherspoon and Oprah Winfry!
Sam Jordison of The Guardian runs a book club on the first Tuesday of every month. You can even put your own reading suggestions to him.

Maybe you’d even like to start your own online book club. Whichever you prefer, you’re not only going to be reading lots, (yay for reading!!) you’ll be making new friends, possibly from around the globe.

Winter doesn’t mean you have to stop you from enjoying yourself. You’ll just be doing from the comfort of your own home instead.
