We all have those times during the day when we’ve got a few minutes to spare. It may be that we’re waiting for a friend who never arrives on time, or that the bus, train or plane you’ve been waiting for has been delayed. Sometimes it’s just that you want five minutes doing something totally mindless to have a break from work – be that a piece of college work or a project you’re working on in the office and you’ve got to a point where you don’t know what to do next.

At these times, it’s great to be able to do something fun and entertaining, yet without needing to think about it too much. There are plenty of games out there that can fill this kind of gap, but here we look at a few games that are perfect for giving you time out for five minutes.

Top 3 Online Games You Can Play For 5 Minutes


1. Bingo

Bingo has a very traditional reputation and if you’ve never played it before, you probably have a mental image of a bunch of seniors listening to numbers being called out. However, since bingo went online, it has become cool, and millions of people – young and old – now play bingo every day on their favourite bingo sites. Go to almost any bingo site and you’ll see that free online bingo games can be found here. You don’t necessarily need to sign up to a site to play them either. You can just try out a few games and see if you enjoy it. For many bingo players, the attraction of the game is its simplicity, and the fact that you don’t have to do anything but pick a card and watch the numbers being marked off by the software in order to win.

2. Candy Crush Saga

This is the game of the moment that Tetris was in the 90s, and you can play it on practically any platform. Again, like bingo, it’s the simplicity of the game that is really appealing for those five minute breaks you want to take. If you haven’t played Candy Crush Saga before, it’s a game where you advance level by level, according to how adept you are at matching three like pieces together to make them vanish and move on with the game. In Candy Crush, the levels are Move, Jelly, Ingredients, Time Limited and Candy Order. The best way to sample this addictive game is to play it; you’ll soon catch on!

3. Hit The Casino!

If you head to any of the many casino sites on the internet, you can choose from a myriad selection of different games. And the best thing about it is that you don’t have to play for real money. You can opt to play for fun, where the casino assigns you a virtual pot of money. Then you can play nearly all of the games on the site, experimenting with different bets and getting all the entertainment without any actual financial risk. For games that are quick to play, check out roulette, blackjack and slots.

So there we have it, three great ways to fill five minutes. Of course, there are plenty of other choices out there, and it’ll only take five minutes to find something else, but if you’re too lazy to look, try these games first!
