No matter who you are, life can get pretty hectic at times and it’s for this reason that many of us look for various ways to “escape”. With that in mind, below is a list of video games and casino titles which transport you to faraway lands and go a long way to helping you relax and take your mind off whatever is troubling you.
We know what you’re thinking, “a real-life simulator is the last thing I need when trying to take my mind off of the trials and tribulations of modern day life”. However, when it comes to The Sims and the various different expansion packs available, you’re in charge and can change things to your liking. Depending on just how passive aggressive you want to be, you can even live out your own life through your computer screen and make it turn out the way you want it to – it’s certainly relaxing if nothing else.
Big Kahuna Slot
Big Kahuna is a 5-reel, 9 payline video slot game developed by Microgaming which incorporates an aesthetic Hawaiian theme. Whether you’re playing the game to land the 8,000 coin jackpot by landing the Big Kahuna wild symbol or simply playing the game to relax, Big Kahuna should be fun, according to this site. No matter your reason for playing the game, you can’t help but be transported to the sunny beaches of Hawaii thanks to the game’s bright exotic graphics and authentic island soundtrack.
Creative mode is definitely the best place to kick back and relax in Minecraft. Despite the game’s 8-bit graphics, it’s easy to get lost in a virtual world which you’ve created and where anything goes. For those who prefer a bit more of a challenge, survival mode is a good change of pace and will test you to your limit while still helping you chill out.
Choose Your Escape
When it comes to relaxing and “escaping”, some of us turn to the gym or play sports to try and relieve the tension and stress associated with everyday life, while others prefer to hop onto the computer, and online casino or their favourite gaming console. No matter what your personal preference, the aforementioned casino title and games are guaranteed to at least kill an hour or two when you’ve had enough of hanging around in the real world.
