Gaming and Gambling is an exception to the old adage – jack of all trades, master of none. 

While he’s certainly a jack of all trades (as evidenced by his channel), he’s mastered VGT slot content. As a bit of background, VGT slots aren’t available everywhere and are not exactly like other slots. You’ll mostly find them in Oklahoma, which is Gaming & Gambling’s home turf.

Having launched his channel in September 2014, he’s coming up on a decade in the business. Even though he’s not the most popular slot influencer we’ve ever reviewed, he boasts 7,670+ subscribers and 4.7+ million views across 1,038 videos. There’s a lot of content to cover here.

Let’s dive into the action with some fun facts you might not know about Gaming and Gambling.

Quick Facts About Gaming and Gambling 

  • Gaming & Gambling’s claim to fame is that he’s the first male VGT channel on YouTube since 2014. He also describes himself as, “a sinner that loves God” and he tries to have a good time at the casino whether he’s winning or losing. Still, he covets the red screen.
  • Gaming and Gambling fulfills the first part of his YouTube username with a long-standing passion for video games, traveling, and camping. It’s not clear what kind of video games he likes to play, but a quick look at his YT profile picture suggests Assassin’s Creed III.

Where to Find Gaming and Gambling

Channel Highlights

Most Popular Video: $5 CRAZY CHERRY **LIVE PLAY** MULTIPLE RED FLASHES

Gaming and Gambling uploaded his most popular video to YouTube over eight years ago on March 10, 2016. Since then, it’s received 120,399+ views and counting. Although this video is only six and a half minutes long, there’s loads of action to take in – and multiple red screens. 

The clip starts with Gaming and Gambling betting $5 per spin on the Crazy Cherry VGT slot. He’s working with $100 in casino credits, and he gets a flashing red screen almost immediately. That red screen also fills out a handful of numbers on the bingo card at the top of the machine. 

A quick, $40 win puts him back on the drawing board. He then whittles his bankroll to $90 before getting another flashing red screen, giving him $60 in winnings. This cycle of small wins followed by equivalent losses continues for a while until he connects three “BAR” symbols. 

The flashing red screen is quickly followed by a $150 win before he connects three double BAR symbols for an even heftier prize. His bankroll skyrockets from $250 up to $450, leaving a $200 profit. At this point, he decides not to look a gift horse in the mouth by wrapping up the session.

Schedule: New Videos 

Gaming and Gambling doesn’t follow a consistent posting schedule, but he tends to upload new content two or three days a week. There’s no set time when he usually posts, but we’d suggest checking his channel between 10 AM and 4 PM EST if you want to be the first to watch his vids. 

Unfortunately, because Gaming and Gambling doesn’t have social media, channel updates are relegated to the “Community” section of his YouTube page. Subscribing ensures that you won’t miss a notification.

Origin Story 

When Gaming & Gambling launched his YouTube channel in September 2014, he became the first male VGT slot player to make it big. For just shy of 10 years, he’s been visiting Oklahoma’s most popular venues and hunting for red screens in hopes of winning huge jackpot handpays. 

Because of his proximity to Oklahoma, which is the only state with non-tribal casinos that offer VGT slots, Gaming & Gambling quickly filled a niche left untouched by most other influencers. He lives and breathes old-school, three-reel action right down to pulling the physical slot lever. 

He’s come a long way since uploading his first-ever video on September 27, 2014. Boosting his production value paved the way to mainstream success for Gaming & Gambling. He used to upload 3-second clips of his biggest wins after the fact, but he transitioned to long-form content. 

Still, he never lost the original premise of his channel – showing off huge bonuses, flashing red screens, and ginormous jackpot handpays. While his first several videos only got hundreds of views, it took him just 18 months to break the six-figure view barrier with his most popular video. 

In March 2016, he pieced together the winning recipe to present his audience with a six and a half minute roller coaster ride on the Crazy Cherry VGT slot. He received 161k+ views, but it would take another five years before he toed the line of 100,000+ views once again in 2021. 

Fast-forwarding to 2024, his popularity isn’t quite where it used to be. However, he’s retained his influencer status for nearly a decade, and that’s something to be applauded. As of right now, he averages between 3k and 4.5k views per video. 

If he keeps up his current trajectory, 10,000+ YouTube subscribers is well within arm’s reach.

Gaming and Gambling has been the recipient of some red-screen luck over the years, and we highlighted his three largest jackpot wins in this section. We’ve also added some context as to how they happened – that is, when we had more than 3 seconds of video footage to work with. 

March 16, 2015: $16,000 on Mr. Money Bags (Casino Unknown) 

This clip may as well be a screenshot, but it’s still documented proof that Gaming and Gambling hit for $16,000 on the Mr. Money Bags VGT slot. This game requires players to put up $100 per spin, so you’d better believe the jackpot handpays are gonna be hefty. 

January 24, 2021: $10,000 on Lucky Ducky Jewel Hunt (Casino Unknown) 

Gaming and Gambling was playing the popular VGT slot “Lucky Ducky Jewel Hunt” when he got a special surprise on the bonus grid. After matching two 10,000-credit orbs, he took home $10k. He was only spending $1 a spin, making this one of the best relative jackpots he’s ever earned. 

December 8, 2014: $3,200 on Mr. Money Bags (Casino Unknown) 

Last but not least, Gaming & Gambling took another video-screenshot of an impressive, $3,200 jackpot handpay from Mr. Money Bags. It’s hard to figure out the circumstances leading up to it, but we’re willing to wager that he just about broke even because he had to play for $100 a spin.
