Game of Thrones (King Joffrey)

Game of Thrones - Top 10 Gambling-Related Memes

If you’ve seen the Game of Thrones series, then you are no doubt familiar with King Joffrey Baratheon. He was the second Baratheon to sit on the iron throne. However, contrary to what most people thought, he was actually a Lannister. The son was born from the incestuous relationship between Queen Cersei Lannister and her twin brother, Jaime Lannister.

Weird, right? Maybe that’s why their son wasn’t the people’s beloved king. He was always angry and taken for granted.

Enough about him. This meme describes a feeling every gambler and probably Joffrey is familiar with: losing consistently at slots. Then you decide to change the machine, and boom, you hit a big win. Now, you don’t want to try another game, and it becomes a slot worthy of a king.

How I Met Your Mother (Barney Stinson)

How I Met Your Mother - Top 10 Gambling-Related Memes

We pull our next meme from the famous American sitcom How I Met Your Mother, specifically from the words of Barney Stinson. If you love comedy, you should definitely see the series.

In this comedy series, Barney Simpson is a serial womanizer who has written a playbook on how to court women but has few ideas on handling adulthood responsibilities.

So one time, Ted Mosby, a close friend of Barney, suggests that he needs to focus on how to solve his gambling problems. However, Barney, being the corny individual as always, responds by saying it’s hardly a gambling problem if you are ‘awesome’ at it. If you’re a fan of the series, you know that’s just typical Barney.

And then, one day, she walks into your room while you’re in the bathroom and sees her favourite bingo game open on your PC. The granny has seen the internet surprise her countless times before, but this is a life-changing discovery. You now have one choice, get her a device or your PC will never remain the same.
