Songs Inspired by Gambling

Updated: Jan 30

Music has been known to unleash the passions of our past and remind us of simpler times. Flames of our hearts are immortalized with lyrics, and music has even been known to ignite some of the more famous sports feats in history. However, what many people forget is that some of the greatest songs ever put to music have been inspired by gambling, and with the emergence of online gambling, Safe Online Gaming is hopeful to hear a few new tunes that depict the excitement of winning.

Jerry Reed put to music a story about a singer's winning streak in an illegal game of Craps. Unfortunately, a cop shows up and takes the gambler to the courthouse. As luck would have it, the judge is an old fishing buddy he owes money to, and as punishment, the story's subject is sentenced to 90 days in jail. "When You're Hot, Your Hot" is a perfect title when gambling is going your way, but sometimes, as stated in another verse of the song, "And when you're not, you're not!"

The Rolling Stones stay neutral, but positive sharing their view on relationships. They reference a game of Craps as well as Poker in the song Tumbling Dice. However, the song adds some gambling motivation when the lyrics continue to implore the fairer sex to continue to "roll me", and "keep on rolling" while calling the singer 'tumblin dice'.

British heavy rock band, Motorhead created hit song, "Ace of Spades" inspired by the London pub slot machines. We are not quite sure how the slots helped them write the song when it talked about the only card needed was the Ace of Spades, but nonetheless; it became their signature song.

So if you are not spending time in an online gambling casino, you don't have to worry about having a "Poker Face" (Lady Gaga) singing "Viva Las Vegas" (Elvis Presley) and knowing when to hold or fold em' as "The Gambler" (Kenny Rogers).

Of course, there are thousands of sites to play, but it is important to research when choosing an online gaming site. Sites like or and even have all of the thrills of being at a casino in a safe secure environment.  Players can have hours of fun and a chance to win real money.  Each of these casinos has an operator standing by assisting gamblers 24 hours 7 days a week.
