There are plenty of Internet options at your fingertips. It doesn’t matter if you’re on a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. There is always something that you can access anytime, anywhere so long as you have an Internet connection.

Now, let’s kick off the list with something you might enjoy (especially if you like to feel ‘lucky’):

1.   Online casinos

Online casinos have been around ever since the Internet had been taking the world by storm. Even in the famous ‘dot-com boom’ era, online casinos were just one of many things that the Internet had to offer. Today, there is an abundance of online casinos and they have grown in popularity in the last year alone.

You can play casino classics like blackjack, roulette, slots (including football themed online slots), and more. As long as you have fun and play responsibly, have at it and win some real money.

2.   Multiplayer games

Staying on the topic of games, you can also play multiplayer games online. Whether it’s on a computer or a console, you’ll be linked into plenty of fellow gamers from around the world. You can play head-to-head competitions or team competitions.

Either way, you’ll have plenty of games to choose from throughout multiple libraries such as Steam. If you want to take it a step further, you may want to consider doing a Twitch stream (or watch said streams) to get a good idea of what’s hot in the world of online gaming.

3.   Watch online shows and movies

Netflix. Hulu. Disney Plus.

So many choices, it’s hard to know where to begin. You can watch so many of your favorite shows and movies on demand at any time. That is if you have a device that supports streaming.

Yes, there are paid subscriptions for this. And there are also free options as well such as Pluto TV. Either way, your options are anything but limited.

4.   Watch videos on YouTube

So many channels. So many choices. Everything you want to watch for videos will mostly be found on YouTube.

You’ll watch everything from ‘let’s play’ gaming videos, video blog entries, those famous cat videos, and everything in between. Whatever you’re in the mood for, YouTube just might have what you need. YouTube has their premium offers like YouTube TV so you can watch your favorite shows and movies.

5.   Take an online course

While not really considered entertainment per se, it’s actually fun and may be entertaining to learn something new. This could be learning how to cook, develop a new skill, and more. You can check out course sites like Udemy, Lynda, or even Masterclass.

The question is: what do you want to learn? A skill that will help you earn more money? A skill that you’ve always wanted to learn for a long time.

There are so many online courses out there covering various skills or topics. All it takes is a simple Google search.

6.   Sports betting

With many states in the United States legalizing online gambling in some forms, most of it includes sports betting. Where it’s legal, you can take advantage of such online sites such as DraftKings, Barstool Bets, Bovada, and more.

Like online casinos, you can win money just by placing bets on sports teams you want to win. This can take a bit of strategy if you are knowledgeable in the world of sports. But sometimes, anything can happen that can change the outcome.

7.   Social media

You can communicate with your friends or family. You can stay in the know regarding your favorite brands and businesses by liking their pages. Social media has evolved in more than just connecting with people with comments, messages, and ‘likes’.

Of course, you know the most popular social media platforms out there. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are just the big three. You’ll find plenty of entertaining things on there all the time.

8.   eBooks

Are you someone who loves to read? Why not consider purchasing ebooks? Whether it’s fiction or nonfiction, there are plenty of titles and genres to choose from.

The best place to find ebooks is none other than Amazon. You can download the Kindle app on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. From there, you can enjoy reading the books you want (including the ones you can purchase on Amazon).

9.   Music

It’s hard to not be a music fan. Plus, you can be able to listen to your favorite songs online with apps like Pandora, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, iTunes, and more. Best of all, you can listen to your favorite songs ad-free (and that comes with a price).

No matter what, you might be a music lover that just can’t get enough tunes.

10.  News

Want to stay in the know with the latest current events? There are plenty of news outlets that you can check out such as Huffington Post, CNN, Fox News, BBC, and more. Read about what’s going on in your part of the world and beyond via your web browser or dedicated apps.

Final Thoughts
