Gambling is one of the oldest pastimes in the world. It also happens to be one of the most popular. With gambling sites offering free bets, welcome bonuses, and other incentives it’s easy to see why that is as well. We all love a good offer and if we’re going to be gambling anyways then we may as well get something in return. Free bets aside however, sometimes we want a slightly different, and more interesting way to gamble than just using an app on our phone. If you’re looking to branch out in the world of gambling, here are a few fun and interesting ways to gamble.
Weight loss wagers
As you may or may not be aware, losing weight is one of the toughest processes in the world. We all struggle with our weight at some point in time, and as a result we make the conscious decision to lose the weight. This is where it pays (pardon the pun) to have a weight loss incentive. Weight loss wagers are a fun way of gambling and helping you to lose weight. Get your friends and family in on the action and place bets on how much weight you can lose each week. If you fail to hit your target, you pay out, but if you hit your target they pay out. We’re not talking big money here, just enough to prove enjoyable and fun, while giving you an incentive to stick with your diet and healthy living regime.
Another fun way of gambling is to basically turn your home into a casino and to host poker nights. Poker nights are a great way of getting friends/family together and having a few drinks, snacks, and laughs, and hopefully winning some money in a game of poker. All you’ll need is a fairly large table, a poker set, and maybe a few snacks and drinks and you’re all set. You can bet as much or as little as you like, you can set your own rules, and you can have a great time in the process. You may even decide to make it a weekly or monthly event.
Online fantasy sports
If you’re a bit of a sports fan it may be worth joining an online fantasy sports league. Fantasy football is very popular in the British Isles and there is actually quite a lot of skill involved in creating the ultimate team. There is normally a buy-in charge but if you choose the strongest team at the end of the football season you could stand to make a lot of money. The odds may be against you but there is skill as well as luck involved. Besides which, as the buy-in fee is so low normally it’s simply a great way of having some fun and adding a competitive element to the matches every week.
