The Ultimate Playlist For Playing At An Online Casino

What do you listen to while spinning the reels or perfecting your poker face at your favourite online casino? If it's the sound of your neighbour's dog barking, you may want to consider creating an epic playlist for yourself. But what would go on it? Well, there could be an entire music genre for casino classics! All the legends in music history, from the Rolling Stones to Frank Sinatra, seem to know a thing or two about gambling and have some great music to show for it.

We recommend a fine blend of old school classics to keep your boot tapping and your spirits high, mixed in with a few current pop favourites. We’ve compiled a list of some must-have songs, in no particular order, that’ll boost your confidence, comfort your losses, and enhance your experience while you play online casino games!

Viva Las Vegas - Elvis Presley

We said classics! Viva Las Vegas, by the legend himself, Elvis Presley, was launched in 1964. This hit song captures the glitz and glam of gambling capital Las Vegas—so much so that it has been the official song of Las Vegas since 2002! Interestingly, Elvis never actually performed the song live, but it featured as the soundtrack to the movie of the same name. This song has it all - reference to all the classic table games, slots, show girls, and it’s catchy!

The Gambler - Kenny Rogers

The Gambler, written by Don Schlitz and made famous by both Kenny Rogers and Johnny Cash, has a classic country feel and tells the story of a conversation between the singer and a gambler, onboard a train to nowhere. The gambler has some valuable wisdom to offer, namely, "You've got to know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em, know when to walk away, and know when to run" which is true in both poker and in life. For a relaxed song that offers some pearls of wisdom, this is a great add to your playlist.

Ace of Spades - Motorhead

Gambling attracts all kinds of people—and all sorts of music genres go! This one is for the diehard metal fans, and takes its place not only on our list, but as one of the most iconic hard-rock songs of all time. Ace of Spades is basically an extension of Lemmy’s (the lead singer of Motorhead) personal philosophy. Though we warn you, you may not be able to make the lyrics out so clearly, but now you can enjoy the sentiment! Lemmy was known to love slot games, or one-armed bandits, as he might have known them. So now you have more than just good taste in music in common!

Poker face - Ghostface Killah (ft. Shawn Wigs)

Ghostface Killah's hip hop group, The Wu Tang Clan, are known to be keen gamblers and card players, so when it comes to poker, they know a thing or two. With lines such as, “Go all in, if you’re feeling your cards, deep in your gut” and "You can't lose what you don't push into the pot," Poker Face is a great hip hop track to add to your list, and pays tribute to the game itself. At the time of its release in 2006, the US was experiencing a huge online poker boom, making the song even more relevant and popular. This track takes you on a rhythmic journey that any online casino or poker player will appreciate.

Shape of My Heart – Sting

For a slower, more reflective song, Sting’s “Shape of my heart” appeals to the deeper reasons we may come to the tables. It speaks of a man who “deals the cards as a meditation” not for the money or the respect.

With lines such as, “The sacred geometry of chance, The hidden law of a probable outcome” This poetic song will add beauty, introspection and depth to your session.

Tumbling Dice - The Rolling Stones

Nothing beats classic rock ‘n roll and the Rolling Stones are the kings of it. Originally called “Good Time Women,” Tumbling Dice was written in 1972 (in the basement of a country house in France!) as the lead single on the album Exile on Main St. It tells a story of a gambler who cannot remain faithful to any woman. While we certainly aren't promoting infidelity, we certainly are suggesting some legendary rock ‘n roll feature on your playlist! For some bluesy rhythm and groovy lyrical structure, this song will certainly be a pleasant accomplice to your next online slots session!

Poker Face - Lady Gaga

There's a reason this song topped the charts in over 20 countries, making it a worldwide bestseller. In fact, having sold over 14 million copies, Poker Face is one of the best-selling singles of all time! Though the innuendos may be high, there are plenty of actual poker references like "luck and intuition play the cards with spades to start" to keep you excited about your game.

We are the Champions - Queen

Okay we admit, we saved the best for last! No playlist is complete without a hit from Queen, and they truly captured the essence of the winning spirit in the iconic anthem, We are the Champions. Listening to this song on repeat can turn any tilt into luck, and any doubt into confidence. Everybody has felt just how truly inspiring this track is, and in 2011 a team of scientific researchers confirmed that it is one of the catchiest songs in the history of popular music!

Freddie Mercury, lead singer of Queen, said, “I won't be a rockstar, I will be a legend.” So go on, play online casino games with the confidence of Freddie and, as the legend himself said, “No time for losers ‘cause we are the champions of the world!”
