3. Casinos USA (Apple Podcasts)
Host Coach Fav’s style is casual and conversational, talking directly to the listener. He imparts some sound advice on gambling in casinos, like “quit when you’re ahead” and some other equally good tips. All with a touch of humour. Each podcast contains his popular segment on craps, which is Coach Fav’s favourite game, so take notes if it’s yours too as this is really his forte. His podcasts also cover a variety of other topics, from making the most of casino hotel resorts to tax implications on big winnings on the slots.
4. Casino Kombat (Spotify)
Hosted by The Ramblin Gambler (aka TRG), this podcast series often takes the form of tutorials on a range of games and topics – known as Bootkamp. TRG uses his own experience and that of his team in terms of wagering strategies. He considers gambling as a ‘side hustle’ and is not afraid to admit to occasional losses . Luckily for him, Mrs TRG is equally fond of gambling, and each year they celebrate their anniversary in Las Vegas. Tips and tricks are only part of the topic choices, as all things casino are covered in the podcasts, with rewards programs and even the quality of cocktails served in casinos up for discussion.
5. Due for a Win (Apple Podcasts)
Hosts Kyle and Craig are Atlantic City casino enthusiasts. The show focuses on the area’s casinos as well as local bars and restaurants. They occasionally venture out of their territory to cover Las Vegas and other gambling meccas. They also throw in some non-gambling related tidbits about Atlantic City, including the disappearance of Bette Cooper, the reluctant winner of the Miss America pageant held in the town, Monopoly (which was originally based on the streets of Atlantic City), and famous movies shot in the city. Each podcast covers current gambling and casino news.
