The saying goes that “the only people who fear death are those with regrets”, and therefore the suggestion is that so long as a life is fully lived, even the prospect of meeting your maker needn’t be daunting. As such, it can be no surprise that millions of people every year decide to create a “bucket list” for themselves in a bid to have something quantifiable to look back on with pride as they enter their declining years.
From the big to the small, these lists will cover a huge number of activities, experiences and sightseeing opportunities – and perhaps most wonderful of all, all these lists will be different. They cost nothing to make, take virtually no time and are a great topic of conversation and self-discovery.
Typical entries will include sky-diving – with locations such as Nepal, New Zealand and Hawaii often mentioned for their beauty and remoteness – as well as swimming with sharks, learning new languages, running a marathon or simply achieving your ideal weight on the back of dieting and exercise regimes.
The film, ‘The Bucket List’ starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, saw two ageing friends look to put their affairs before their untimely deaths from lung cancer – and understandably, a great deal of travel was scheduled for the pair. For those two American characters, flights to the North Pole, Egypt, India and Tanzania were all embarked upon in their quest of self-fulfilment – but for many people it would be flights to the States that would be the first thing to organised.
A trip to Las Vegas to experience the world of gambling in the world’s largest adult playground would be considered a “must-do” experience, and with famous casinos including the Bellagio, Caesar’s Palace and the MGM Grand, there really is no better place to experience the rush that can be experienced by the single turn of a card or spin of a wheel.
For bucket-listers who are keen to feel this excitement first-hand, but are perhaps unable to make such a long journey, Coral’s online casino offering is the perfect place to dip your toe into the water of high stakes betting by having a go on one of those online blackjack games that you might have heard about.

Online blackjack is a growing industry and the casino game that offers the best odds and the most excitement to the player – and with Coral’s amazing £50 sign-up bonus for new customers when they deposit just £10, the element of personal risk just dropped even further.
So even if you’re not yet in a position to be strapped to the front of a Kiwi sky-diving instructor and hurled out of a plane at 15,000 feet, you’re certainly more than able to get your phone out and take advantage of Coral’s great online blackjack offering – and with their current range of bonuses, it shouldn’t take the Grim Reaper peeking his head around your bedroom door to motivate you into doing so!
