6 Ways To Get Your Gambling Fix

Even though there are well over 240 brick and mortar casinos across the U.S., you may not live close to one. You may just be unlucky to live in a state that doesn’t have one (sorry, residents of Alaska, New Hampshire, Utah, Vermont, Hawaii, Rhode Island, and D.C.).

If you love the art of gambling, you’re likely to have a “I’m feeling lucky” kind of moment every now and then. So, how are you going to test that luck? Here are just a few ways to get your fix when there’s no casino in sight.

Book a Flight, Take a Road Trip

Have some vacation time built up at work, have some airline miles burning a hole in your wallet, or just want to go on an epic summer road trip? Why not book a flight or pack up the car and hit the old school casinos in Atlantic City or Vegas? Surely, these places must be on every gambler’s bucket list.

If you can’t make a long trip happen, play hooky and take an extended weekend or even a day trip to the closest casino.

Play Online

There are three types of gamblers: those who only play in person, those who only play online, and those who will take any opportunity they can to play, whether in a brick and mortar casino or on their smartphone.

If you’ve never played poker or blackjack online, don’t knock it until you’ve tried playing at the best online casino from the comfort of your living room. We all remember the casino games with the gaudy graphics (that were anything but lifelike) from the late ‘90s to the early 2000’s.

The graphics and capabilities in today’s online casinos are so realistic, it feels like you’re right there, playing the slots at your favorite in-house casino. Bonus: You don’t have to leave the house or you can play while sitting at the dentist office.

Host a Poker Night

What better way to get your gambling fix than hosting a poker night? While it’s not the same as playing with strangers at a high-class casino, you’re likely to have a much better time playing with your friends and you’ll probably save more money, too.

Even though you can’t take advantage of the “All-You-Can-Eat” Crab Buffet or enjoy a comp room on the house, you can grill up some ribs, fill the cooler with craft beer, and enjoy the comfort of your own bed.

B-I-N-G-O

Think that sitting in the basement of a VFW on a Saturday night with a bunch of people your grandmother’s age is boring? Think again. First of all, Bingo doesn’t only draw in the senior crowd, you’re likely to run into folks you know, too.

If Bingo seems a little “tame,” just watch the glares you get when you’re winning blackout clears the jackpot.

Start a Betting Pool at Work

Nothing spells gambling like a little friendly competition. Keep in mind that this may go against all HR rules, so plan with caution. Start a FF league or some other friendly bet with some of your colleagues.

Keep your bets clean and fair. While it might be tempting, don’t bet on office politics and drama. It might be fun, but it’s definitely not cool.

Watch a Gambling Movie

Watching a movie with gambling as the main plot may seem a little far-fetched but it might help to scratch that gambling itch. If it works for fans of other genres like Kung Fu or Westerns, why can’t it work for you?

Whether you like the classic old school scenes like “Ocean’s Eleven” or want to visit the gritty, mobster side of gambling in flicks like “Casino,” there’s a gambling movie for every type of gambler.
