How much does a hipster weigh? One Instagram! Cheesy as this is, Instagram has become the trendiest place to upload pictures, videos and share cool, meaning laden messages and hip hashtags. And of course gambling has its share of Instagram stars, from top players, big name operators, and news feed. Because of this, we’ve compiled this list of the top gambling Instagram accounts that you should follow right this minute. Hurry up – there's no time to waste!
1. Dan Bilzerian (@danbilzerian)
Alright, no surprise there. Crowned the King of Instagram, this world-famous poker player sure knows how to live life at large. And his bank account allows him to do so, so expect a lot of booze, guns, wads of cash, excessive parties and near naked girls of course.
2. BGO Vegas Casino (@bgocasino)
Claiming to be the world’s number one casino, BGO’s Instagram account is quite varied. Clearly trying to attract players to their site (which has very low wagering requirements, plenty of bonuses and promotions and awesome games, by the way), BGO post inspirational quotes, images of fancy cars, villas, yachts. Did we mention fast cars? Many of them, in addition to Dan Bilzerian, who often makes a guest appearance on BGO’s Instagram.
3. Calvin Ayre (@calvinayrenews)
Founder of the gambling content haven Bodog and an online gambling billionaire, Calvin Ayre has also got a gambling site called www.calvinayre.com. It is this news site that runs the Instagram account and fills it with the latest developments and analytical insights into the gambling industry as a whole and sometimes also profiles the rich and famous gamblers too.
4. Daniel Negreanu (@dnegspoker)
Another Dan and another poker player, Daniel Negreanu is a slightly less good looking version of Dan Bilzerian, but arguably equally as famous. Calling himself ‘The Poker Guy,’ his posts are as varied as his pet Chihuahua, beach villa views, vegan recipes and badass gambling shots. Oh and did we mention PETA endorsements? A true hodgepodge of an Instagram account.
5. Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas (@bellagio)
An account showing off the beautiful five star hotel in Vegas, Bellagio’s account is full of opulent sights that will make you want to hit that progressive jackpot and jet right off to the desert of Nevada. Splashy shows, amazing food and the good looking hotel itself are all featured among the photos.
6. NetEnt (@netentofficial)
Get an insight into what it means to work for one of the world’s greatest software development companies by following NetEnt’s Instagram! With lots of pictures of the happenings in their office in Stockholm, the channel also features information and images of new game releases, complete with staff re-enacting slot characters. Great fun!
7. Phil Ivey (@philivey)
How is it that so many poker players have made it onto our top gambling Instagram accounts list? Yet another professional poker player, Phil Ivey is an American who owns ten World Series of Poker bracelets, which in itself is pretty telling. Plus, one World Poker Tour title and nine final table appearances too. Yet, his Instagram feed is refreshingly human and humorous – from his best meals, to memes, to player tributes – you can find anything and everything on Phil Ivey’s Instagram page.
8. Paddy Power Casino (@paddypowerofficial)
Begging for Instagram followers, Paddy Power basically uses their Instagram account to post funny memes and images. Of course, not everything that they post under the pretence that it’s funny is actually funny, but there are a few gems hidden here and there that make them worth a follow.
