"Alls I got is a lousy Monkeydude!"

Gambling has been seen on a couple of occasions in Free Country, USA. Usually, something other than money is at stake, such as spending the night at The King of Town's castle (the bet), changing one's name to "Kevin DuBrow" (also in the bet), or a car (pop-up).

Strong Bad once played cards with Homestar and lost. To uphold his end of the bet, he was forced to wish everyone a happy Mother's Day. Although he vowed never to play cards again, he later did so in the email pom pom's Easter egg, in which he played cards with Bubs (albeit with e-mails, somehow) and won the game by beating Bubs' Monkeydude with two Abdis and a Viklas. In the same email, he also sings an intro song about gambling ("Oh, I'm an e-mail gambler. That means I play cards with e-mails. Full house.").

Appearances

  • A Mother's Day Message
  • Email 1 step ahead — "This one better be good man; I got a lotta money riding on this one."
  • Email the bet — Homestar and Strong Bad make a bet about Homestar being cool.
  • Email pom pom — The email intro song and easter egg both refer to playing cards with, or gambling with, emails.
  • Senorial Day — "Gamble around the campfire, children." (Although it's possible Senor Cardgage is actually using the word "gambol", meaning "to skip about".)
  • Email pop-up (Easter egg)
  • Email licensed — Strong Bad mentions going to the dog tracks.
  • Place ya bets!The Deleteheads place wagers on what will happen in the upcoming 200th email.
