A Sweet Jackpot: Gambling Candy
By Alex J. Coyne © November 2017 Great Bridge Links
If you’re not sure what to get someone for an upcoming birthday or holiday, we’d say always settle with either cash – or candy. Here’s our list of the coolest gambling candy you can buy.
Gambling-Themed Candy Molds
From Shop Bakers Nook. For only two dollars a pop, there are molds for bingo cards, chess pieces, poker chips, card suits and playing cards. For a little bit more at $7.99 they’ve also got cookie-cutters in the shape of playing card suits.
A perfect gift for all chocolate-lovers. This set of gambling-themed chocolate candy is available from Kegg’s Handmade Candies for $24.95. It includes a roulette wheel, slot machine, poker chips, cards and dice – of course, all made out of chocolate. Careful so you don’t melt ‘em while you’re on a hot streak!
M&M’s Slot Machine Candy Dispenser
Some might have had slot machine candy dispensers as a kid and want to relive the fun; this is great to keep on your desk or in your games room. These are available from Amazon for $39.98 excluding shipping. Yes, it’s just like an old-school Pez-dispenser for gamblers!
Poker Chip Cookie Cutters
Take a look on crafts site Etsy for some really cool poker chip-themed cookie cutters – here and over here. This one requires some baking before you get to the cookie-eating part, so you might want to take a look at a recipe that goes along with it, like from Casino Recipes, Betty Crocker or Centre Street.
Candy chips are perfect for using for chips in lieu of real money. You can find these Candy Money Rolls from Amazon, these chocolate coins from Old Time Candy (available, of course, in bulk, too!) or these million dollar milk chocolate bars for high-rollers – and, well, everyone else who just really, really loves chocolate. More candy cash is available from Candy Favourites.
Hard Card Candy
If hard candy is more your thing, these playing card fruit candies are available from HalfNuts.net – at $4, 99 per pound, so go absolutely crazy, sugar nuts!
Candy Playing Cards
While you can’t eat these, they’re a great companion to a card game with a lot of sweet eats going around the table. This card deck contains pictures and more information about the candy on the cards; they’re available from Amazon for only $12, 77.
While not a personal favorite of mine, many might love these playing-card themed mint truffles from The Chocolate Store. Aces, Kings, Queens and Jacks. You can buy the stuff per pound at $21.99 – that, according to the website, comes to approximately 38 pieces.
Available from Krauses Candy, you can buy a slot machine made entirely from chocolate – miniaturized, of course. They’re only $3.99 and come with a chocolate poker chip. For a little more starting at $100, here’s another option from Chocolate Works – and you can specify size and weight. We’ll try our luck with the biggest you’ve got…
What will you be picking up for the sweet toothed gambler ?
What is a Live Dealer Casino Game?
In a live casino game, a human dealer runs the game in real time from a casino gaming table, which can be seen via a live streaming video link. Players can make betting decisions via a console on their computer screen, and can communicate with the dealer using a text chat function. You can find some UK live dealer casinos listed on Big Casino Bonuses.
