Christmas is only a few days away, and if you’re like most people, there’s probably one or two people you still need to buy for. It can get pretty hectic – believe me, I know! But if there’s a gambler on your list, here are 5 gifts that you can really surprise them with.

1) Custom playing cards

Everyone has a deck of cards lying around, but nothing is more impressive than a custom set. There are plenty of companies on the web that specialize in making playing cards that are bound to become a gambler’s favorite for everything from poker night to blackjack practice.

Our suggestion: find some of your favorite pictures of you and your friend to put on the face cards!

2) A real slot machine

We’ll admit finding a real slot machine in the next few days is a long shot, but no gambler’s collection is complete without one. If you’ve got the cash and are in the mood to go on a little scavenger hunt, you’ll definitely have the most memorable gift of the year.

You’ll want to start your search with local antique shops if you want it ready by this Christmas. But if you can’t find anything locally, you’re bound to come across a slot machine if you look online. Just make sure they’re legal to own where you live – no one wants to get arrested on Christmas!

3) A game timer

You’ll want something that they can just set and forget. Something casino-themed is always best. It could prove to be the most valuable thing in your friend’s gaming arsenal!

4) Casinopoly


Whether we like it or not, we’ve all played Monopoly. If you’ve shopped for board games recently, you know that there are dozens of Monopoly variants coming out all the time.

But Casinopoly is different. It’s an add-on to your Monopoly game designed to shake things up when you play. In between buying properties and passing Go, you’ll face-off with your friends in all sorts of casino games! It’s got everything from slots and roulette to craps and blackjack. It’s bound to become a gambler’s favorite.
