Within your circle of family and friends, you are sure to know someone with a passion for casinos. If the high roller in your life has an upcoming birthday, graduation, or holiday, or if you simply want to put a smile on their face, check out this fool-proof gift guide! Whether they prefer online casino games or the Vegas Strip, dressing to the nines, or curling up with a good book, we’ve got something for everyone.
For the online gamer:
For the casino lover who prefers to play from the comfort of home, we recommend gifting them with a prepaid credit card.
Online casinos don’t offer gift vouchers, so prepaid cards are the ideal way to fund your friend or loved one’s gameplay; giving them hours of priceless entertainment at the click of a button.
Many lovers of online casino games actually prefer using prepaid cards over traditional credit and debit cards. Due to their anonymity and one-time use, they add an extra layer of safety to the online gaming experience. Additionally, since these cards come with a set limit, they can help players to gamble more responsibly! If you’re not convinced by now, get this: some casinos even offer bonuses to players who pay with a prepaid card.
If you want to ensure that the card you purchase can be used at as many online casinos as possible, Visa and Mastercard are your best bets. However, American Express and Discover are also commonly accepted.
For the entertainer:
If the gambling enthusiast in your life loves to entertain, why not surprise them with their very own slot machine! Home slot machines are always a hit when friends and family stop by, and can be shown off and enjoyed for years to come.
Whatever your budget, there is a wide range of machines available for you to choose from. For under $100.00 you can easily purchase a toy slot machine from retailers like Amazon, Wayfair and Bed Bath & Beyond. However, keep in mind that you will probably get what you pay for.
If you want to shell out a little extra cash, look for a refurbished machine made especially for home entertainment purposes. Companies like Slot Machines Unlimited are dedicated to bringing quality machines to homes in the US and worldwide starting at around $900.00 a piece. Many styles and brands are available to best suit the home of your gift’s recipient.
Before purchasing a real slot machine, be sure to check the laws where you live, and remember that the machine will likely take up a sizable chunk of space. However, for the right person, it can be the gift of a lifetime.
For the bookworm:
If you know someone who loves reading as much as they love gambling, then perhaps a book will be right up their alley!
For the person who already has everything, a new and exciting choice is The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win. In this fascinating read, author and psychologist Maria Konnikova tells the story of how her research transformed her from poker novice to international champion. Equal parts entertaining, inspiring and educational, it is sure to be a treasured addition to any bookshelf.

For the jetsetter:
The world has been at a relative stand-still since the COVID-19 pandemic, so the traveler on your list is likely itching for a casino vacation right about now!
With COVID coverage offered by many hospitality and travel companies, making booking far less risky in these turbulent times, why not help their dreams to become reality?
From plane tickets to a suite at a famous hotel to a gift card for their dream casino destination, there are so many ways you can help fund their perfect holiday. For inspiration, check our article about the World’s Greatest Casinos on Each Continent.
If straying far from home isn’t an option for your friend or loved one, look into packages offered by local casinos. A ‘staycation’ can also be a great option for those with the travel bug.
For the style star:
We all have that friend or family member who loves to show the world who they are through their fashion sense. Whether they prefer understated elegance or playful tackiness, the internet is a treasure trove of casino-related accessories. From $7.00 ‘gambling socks’ to $300.00 silver cufflinks, there’s something out there for everybody.
We hope you’ve found the perfect gift for the gambling enthusiast on your list—whatever their interests may be. Happy gifting!
