Best Holiday Gifts for Online Casino Players
It’s that time of year. More specifically, it is time to figure out what holiday gifts to buy for friends and family for whom it is most difficult to shop.
Most people know someone who spends time playing online poker or internet casino games. It is a popular hobby, especially for Australians. What could you possibly buy for that person for the holidays?
Gift Cards Not Available
The easiest gift to purchase for an online gambling enthusiast would be a gift card. It would be convenient to deposit money into the online account belonging to that friend or family member. Better yet, it would be ideal to be able to purchase a gift card.
That is not possible for online casinos, not anywhere in the world but especially at Aussie online casinos. The efforts of the casino operators to weed out corruption and prevent money laundering necessitate restrictions. One of those is to prohibit people from gifting money through online casino accounts.
With that in mind, what can you do for the online casino or poker player in your life?
We have ideas, as collected from asking those in our offices and many of the online gamblers we know.
There is a workaround for the gift card idea. And it comes from Neosurf.
Neosurf is a prepaid card that makes online purchases simple. The person simply pays cash for a voucher at one of thousands of locations, and the receipt then contains a pin number.
Many Aussie online casinos accept Neosurf payments. The player simply goes into their online casino account, chooses Neosurf, enters the pin number, and transfers money from the card to the account. Some of the options for players with Neosurf cards include Joka Room, Kahuna Casino, Fair Go Casino, Uptown Pokies, Red Stag Casino, and Bonza Spins.
Cards can be purchased for values up to $250. To find where to purchase one in Australia, check out the Neosurf website.
Headphones or Ear Pods
One of the favorite activities of people who play casino games or poker online is to listen to books or podcasts at the same time.
Buy the person a set of noise-cancelling headphones to keep out any distractions. Wireless earplugs or ear pods are also an excellent choice, as this allows players to stay mobile while playing games online.
Tablet or iPad
This is a bit on the more expensive side of the gift tree, but an electronic tablet or iPad is an excellent gift for online players.
Some players enjoy using their desktops for a larger image and more game options. The alternative is to play on a mobile device, which can restrict some games and is tougher on the eyes. A tablet allows the player to use the regular casino site, enjoy the graphics and animation of online slots, and see actions more clearly when playing table games.
Playing online games is a sedentary activity. One of the most common pieces of advice for all online gamers is to exercise when playing. Staying active is vitally important for a person’s health – not only for the body but for mental health and agility as well.
What about an exercise ball that can replace a desk chair? What about hand weights or stretch bands that can be used by idle hands?
There are many gifts available for people who work at home or spend long hours at computers. There are pedal-only ellipticals to keep the legs and feet moving. Ankle weights and hand exercisers can also be helpful and thoughtful gifts.
Contrary to what your friends and family may say, they do not always win money at online casinos. There are ups and downs, winning and losing. That is all a part of the excitement of the games. That means that players need something to help them through the losing times.
One small gift idea is a stress ball, which provides hand exercise along with a stress reliever. Another is some type of aromatherapy, whether it be incense or candles, or even an aroma diffuser.
Whatever might help reduce the stress of your friend or family member would make a great gift.
