"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 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 email gambler. That means I play cards with emails. Full house.").
