Popular Casino GIFs – Just For The Giggles

Hey there, fellow gamblers! Welcome to our blog! This article is something a little lighter than other of our previous articles. We're going to talk about something fun and probably familiar to most of you. GIFs – a lot of us love them, a lot of us use them daily to cheer up a friend or express a specific mood. We will more specifically talk about casino and gambling GIFs, what they are about and why they are so cool. Let's get started.
What Is A GIF? Share on Pinterest

Mandatory Disclaimer!

Attention, readers! Sorry for the aggressive welcome to the paragraph. We need to make a big big disclaimer before we continue with the topic. We’re not going to include actual GIFs!. Don’t get us wrong, it is not because we cannot find any. There are a lot of casino and gambing-related GIFs out there that are super cool. However, since we do not want to get in any trouble, we are not going to include them because of legal reasons (copyright). Instead, we’re going to include royalty-free images that ‘describe’ the GIFs, if that makes sence. We hope you understand and that you’ve paid attention reading this paragraph. Now, we will continue with the rest of the article! And, by the way, you can also take a look at our gallery filled with casino images that are also completely free and you can download them!

History of GIF – Not as Recent as You’d Think

You might think that gifs are something relatively new to our world but, oh, how wrong we all are! Do we actually know what a gif is? Let’s check! GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. This is a bitmap image format, developed back in 1987 by Steve Wilhite. He is an American computer scientist, part of the team at CompuServe. Sounds a bit difficult to understand, right? Patrick Davidson from MemeFactory has a more understandable explanation:

An animated gif is an image that’s been encoded using the graphics interchange format where it has multiple frames encoded into a single image file and a web browser or other software will play those images back in animated sequence automatically.

The idea was to provide a color image format that would replace the run-length encoding (RLE) for their file downloading areas. The GIF files are 8-bit and can ‘generate’ only up to 256 colors per image.

History Of GIFs

Are GIFs Legit?

To be honest, not all people using the World Wide Web are big fans of GIFs. There are a lot of disadvantages, including:

  • The quality of the image presented is not perfect;
  • The format is not semi-transparency-friendly;
  • The images are uncompressed;

And yet, there some advantages that we cannot deny:

  • GIF is supported by all browsers.
  • At the time, HTML did not support video, which is why it was easier to share GIFs instead.
  • They’re so easy to make – it is much easier to make a short, yet super fun GIF rather than make a full video and not be able to upload it and send it to whoever you want.

Can You Make a GIF of Your Own?

The beauty of GIFs is that anyone with a computer or/and a phone can create a GIF. It’s not so hard and it’s super fun to do. There are a few platforms where you can create one. So, here’s how you can GIF:

  1. There are GIF-making websites available, where you can get creative. This includes sites like GIPHY and Imgur – probably the most popular and often-used websites for GIFs.
  2. If you’re more comfortable working with an app, there are ways you can create cool GIFs on the go. Whether you use iOS or Android, you can use: GIPHY CAM, GIF Maker and even Google Gboard to make whatever you want.
  3. Finally, a Digital Art Software is also an option. However, keep in mind that it might be a bit more time-consuming and might annoy you a lot until you’re done with the final product.

Where Can You Use GIFs?

Now that you’ve created a few fun GIFs, it’s time to share them with the world. Of course, there is a place and time for such things, and you should know where it is acceptable to use them. We’ve thought that it would be a good idea to prep a quick Do’s and Don’t’s list for your convenience. Because a GIF is not always the way to go.

DO send GIFs:

  • To your besties in a group or other chats to make them laugh.
  • Make GIFs that you know people would like.
  • Use GIFs to break the ice when meeting new people at a social event.

DON’T send GIFs:

  • To your boss in an email – it’s not professional!
  • Use GIFs in presentations for work or school – in some cases it might be ok, but try to avoid it.
  • To your significant other when you’re breaking up with them – that’s just rude!

We tried to cover the basics of GIFs in general, but this is not the actual topic of the article you’re reading right now. In the next paragraphs, we’re going to show you some of the best casino-related GIFs we could find! Check them out!

What Casino GIFs Are There?

There are a lot of GIFs on different topics – movies, moods, school life, etc. We are going to have a better look at the ones, dedicated to casinos. If you think about it, there are a lot of gambling GIFs out there and some of them are hilarious! We’ve listed a few categories and have included some of the most popular GIFs for gambling. We think you’ll enjoy them a lot!

Blackjack GIFs

We were wondering whether we should include a separate ‘gambling movie’ section. However, most of these are from movies and famous sit-cons anyways, so…yes. Blackjack, being one of the most popular table games in the world, often is used in GIFs as well. Below, you can see which ones might pop up on your search bar. Also, if you’re interested in the game itself, we suggest you check out some of our top best Blackjack sites in the UK. A quick reminder – due to legal reasons we’ve not included actual casino GIFs. Instead, you will see some images that resemble the idea of the format. Now, let’s see what we have here:

Blackjack Dealer Shuffle
Evening Out Playing Blackjack
Blackjack Table - Night Out

Roulette GIFs

Roulette is a very cool game as well. A lot of gamblers like it because of the adrenalin wave you get when you’re waiting for the ball to land on the number and colour you want. It is exciting and mesmerizing to watch. You can try it out in our list of top roulette casinos 2021. Don’t you like how it spins? Here are a few GIFs where you can enjoy the spinning of the wheel:

Keep in mind that most of these are taken from popular movie scenes. It is quite easy to make one on your own by cropping the section you’d like. Check our previous paragraph for more details. Let’s see what some of the best poker GIFs look like:

Poker, Cards, Suits and Chips
Aces, Chips and Poker
Poker Players and Cards

Lottery GIFs

Every country has a National Lottery. It is a super accessible type of gambling and can be played in land-based facilities or online. Ready to take a chance? Check out our list of top lottery sites. Most players try their luck with scratch cards. They may bring you either nothing or the big bucks with just a swipe of a coin on the paper. These are not probably often used as GIFs, since we couldn’t find a big selection of such images. Here’s what we’ve managed to find:

Scratch Tickets and Lottery
Hoping for the Win
Lottery Numbers and Online Play

Final Thoughts

We think that GIFs are a fun way to make a conversation better and to let people be creative by making fun short clips on their own and sharing them with everyone. There might be a lot more casino-related GIFs than the ones we’ve found, we might even try to create some for our website in future. Thank you so much for your attention and understanding. We hope we didn’t disappoint you with the missing GIFs. On the bright side, you have access to so many resources and you’re free to create some on your own. Would you make a casino GIF for us? Make sure you share on our social media handles what you would like to read about next. Check out some of our other blog posts and we’ll see you next time with more interesting gambling content.
