The Most Unusual Gambling Games

We know that there have been some incredibly weird and wonderful bets made throughout the years, and they just go to show that we humans will do just about anything for a good wager. However, betting isn’t the only aspect of gambling where things can get a little strange, and it certainly extends to some casino games themselves.

Who thought a no deposit mobile casino like The Phone Casino would have been possible just a few years ago? If you think that was a surprising development, then wait until you’ve seen what we’ve got up our sleeves today. We’re talking about playing roulette against a rat, tic-tac-toe against a chicken and other weird and wonderful gambling games that people have come up with. Although, some of these games are definitely more weird than wonderful.

So, take a break from your free spins without a deposit for just a moment and let’s take a look at some of these delightful gambling game inventions.


Okay, we’ll ease you into the list with a game that’s a little less weird, and just a little bit unusual – much like our coveted free spins daily offer at The Phone Casino.

Dreidel is an incredibly popular game and much loved within the Jewish Community, particularly over Hanukkah. It’s similar to other casino dice games. However, it uses a four-sided spinning top instead of traditional dice.

Players are usually made up of friends and family and they will bet on what side the dreidel will land once it is done spinning. Wagers come in the form of money, snacks and anything else players can agree on. The wagers are put into a central pot before the game begins.

Each side of the dreidel has lettering that dictates what the winner takes from the pot.

  • Nun: The winner takes nothing.
  • Gimel: The winner takes everything in the pot.
  • Hey: The winner takes half of what is in the pot.
  • Shin: The winner must put additional winnings into the pot.

Each player gets to spin the dreidel and the game ends when the entire pot is won and then the next round of betting can begin.

Rodent roulette

Rodent roulette is certainly a strange form of casino game, but it’s one that has been around for ages and that is still pretty popular, despite its fair share of controversy. The game uses a range of rodents; whether in rat race roulette, mouse roulette or even the great gerbil roulette, the theme clearly comes in the form of fur, four legs, some whiskers and a bit of a cheese-loving reputation.

Rodent roulette uses an adapted roulette wheel and bettors then place a wager on which hole they think the rodent will run down. Those who bet on the right hole will get an instant payout.

You won’t find this form of roulette in our no deposit, free spins mobile casino, but we have an entertaining offering of immersive roulette and live roulette to whet your whiskers with instead.

Chicken tic-tac-toe

Noughts and crosses is a staple childhood game across the world and it’s still played by many adults too. However, the Chicken Challenge in Atlantic City, New Jersey, takes tic-tac-toe to another level.

In this particular game, you won’t be playing against a human competitor or even a computer. You’ll be taking on the noughts and crosses champion, Ginger the chicken. If you manage to win against the notorious Ginger, then you’ll walk away with $10,000.

Don’t think this is going to be a walk in the hutch, however, as Ginger is undefeated so far. This feisty fowl doesn’t get her feathers in a fluff and makes one mighty opponent for the most unusual game of noughts and crosses that you’re ever bound to play.

Belgium Birdsong

In another game with its fair share of controversy, we have the Belgium Birdsong. At a number of casinos in the country, you’ll find a multitude of cages filled with birds that people can wager on. The aim of the game is to take a long and hard look and listen to the birds before the game begins and then choose the feathery friend that you think could give Adele a run for her money. Bettors must put money down on which bird they think will have the loudest and longest song of them all. Think you can identify Belgium’s next star bird? Then this is the highly unusual gambling game for you.

Bacon lottery

Okay, the lottery might not be considered a gambling game per se, but this weird one is certainly worth a mention. The year was 2015 and the state lottery of New Hampshire, USA, decided to combine everyone’s favourite breakfast meat with the chance to win $1,000. They released a limited edition scratch-and-sniff lottery ticket that came with Eau de bacon. That’s not all; there were also free bacon sample handouts at outlets across the state. As expected, people flocked to the deal to add more money to their piggy banks and over 700,000 tickets were sold in one week. Now, that’s one way to bring home the bacon!
