The last week or so has brought with it that first chill in the air, and you know that it won’t be long before the nights start to draw in. Pretty soon, you’ll have barely finished the afternoon school run and it’ll be dark outside.
While it’s a bit saddening to think that our days will be shorter for the next six months, there are some upsides to this time of year. The fun of getting the kids dressed up for Halloween is just around the corner and everyone will be setting off for a night of trick or treating and going on a sweet-eating frenzy.

And when Halloween’s over, the countdown to Christmas will begin in earnest. It’s only weeks away after all.
Online entertainment on-tap
In the meantime, we’ve got a great excuse to hunker down early for those cosy evenings in when it’s dark outside. Once you’ve got the kids to bed, there is always plenty of online entertainment to make a change from watching TV every night. One online craze that’s been sweeping the world the last few years is online bingo. This is a game that we all know of but may not have ever gone to the effort of going to a bingo hall to play. Now we don’t need to. We can play online whenever we want and many of the sites are handing out free money in order to get us to sign up.
If you choose to play any of the online bingo games from bgo.com, for a deposit of just £10 you get an extra £40 to play with as a welcome bonus. That’s a 400% bonus, which will go a long way on bingo games that only cost a few pence to play. Other sites such as Gala and Cheeky Bingo offer similar deals to tempt new players to join.
And as well as getting access to hundreds of bingo games, you’ll also have the choice of other games to play alongside bingo. One that’s perfectly themed for those autumnal nights is Fireworks Frenzy – a slot game that will set off a riot of different colours on your screen as you play to win. You can play this game for free, too, whenever you land three cracker symbols anywhere on the reels. When it’s dark, cold and rainy outside, this game’s sure to brighten up any evening.

The great thing about playing games such as online bingo and slots is that they’re such easy games to play. After a full-on day with the kids or being at work, you want a game that’s entertaining but doesn’t need any great level of concentration. That’s exactly what you get with bingo and slots. Winning is down to chance – all you have to do is to decide which games to play and how much money to play with. And if you’re only interested in being entertained, and not bothered about playing to win money, you don’t even have to play for real money – demo mode allows you to play for free.
Socialise without leaving the house
Playing on a bingo site, you also get the option of chatting to other players while the games are going on, so there’s a social side to it, too. Bingo chat rooms are always lively places, with players exchanging their views on life in general as well as watching how the game is developing, so logging into a bingo site is a great way to have a bit of time to socialise without having to head out in to the cold and dark on a winter’s night.
