It’s not mainly about gambling but yes, it has the same feelings as gambling. It revolves around a ghost who wishes to be the best Go player. LOL, but how can a ghost play a game?  There comes our MC named Hikaru to answer your query. He is a kid who made it possible for the ghost to play the game.

Whether the kid is possessed or not, or if there is another story behind it, this is the major spoiler! So, don’t expect me to tell you, HAHAHA! (Sorry dude, but it’s for your own sake.)

The ghost isn’t just a normal guy who loves Go, but he was actually a top Go player before dying. It’s a great anime where I loved how a ghost and a kid worked together to play Go. If you love anime about gambling, then I am sure you will also like this one.

However, somehow, she joins the mahjong club again  and vows to win the nationals. To know what made her join mahjong again is what you will find yourself. Since I don’t wanna spoil it for you! I know it’s not exactly about gambling but the fun is the same though!

Rio is a fantastic mix of comedy and gambling. It’s all about a casino dealer named Rio. She is considered a good luck charm when it comes to gambling. In fact, Rio can bring good luck to anyone. The element of luck makes this anime really exciting.

Later on, Rio gets to know about card gates which are 13 in total. As expected, she vows to collect all 13 of them. The story progresses by highlighting her journey of collecting all 13 cards. To conclude, this anime will not bore you if you’re truly interested in gambling!

Borderland is another world where people have to play a game for their survival. Yes, dude, it’s not just a typical game, it’s a matter of life and death. On the other hand, our MC is living a dull life in the normal world.

He considers his life without any thrill and purpose. The daily routine doesn’t excite him anymore. So, one day, he gets transferred into another world named Borderland. There, when he plays different risky games, he starts to feel alive. Yes, he found what he needed and that was thrill and adventure.

Just like we bet on different things in gambling, he bets on his life to survive.

I know gambling is more fun when we have the biggest of bets, right? Or in simple words, when we aim for a bigger target. Mudazumo isn’t a typical gambling anime but is way more interesting. It’s about Mahjong (a Chinese game).

To them this isn’t just a game but is pure politics. If someone can beat the experts of mahjong, then they will be awarded what they want. Just imagine, if politics works based on a win or lose gamble! Sounds risky to me but never mind!

In gambling, we bet with money and whatnot! So using gladiators to win or lose a contract isn’t a big deal, right? In the world of Kengan Ashura, people hire gladiators for fighting and decide based on the match. 

I enjoyed this anime mainly because of its action and martial arts. Secondly, betting on gladiators is also pretty interesting to watch. (for me it was scary though!). If you are looking for the best gambling anime, then I am sure you will love this one.

Oh yeah, if you hate violence, then you can safely skip this one!

Usogui is an anime purely based on gambling. The MC is named Madarame Baku, he has a next-level goal. LOL, where people only wish to win a bet, he vows to control the entire gambling organisation. (such high dreams and I love how he executes this)

Usogui shows high-level gambling where people not only bet with money but with everything they have. Yes, this can be a matter of life and death. I am sure you will remain hooked to the anime till the end. So, have fun!

I like this anime because it highlights reality. After all, there are some characters who don’t win every time. LOL, Nangou has a debt of over three million yen. Yes, this gives me chills to even think about it. So, it’s the story that highlights the life of Nangou and his struggles in gambling.

The plot revolves around a gambling genius MC named Akagi. He is also the one who saves Nangou. After defeating some popular gambling players, he quits for a while. Well, we all know the story can’t progress until the MC jumps back in the game, right?

So, Nango tries his best to bring Akagi back to gambling.

In gambling, players face risky situations where sometimes they bet with their own lives. We know that gambling is by choice but that’s not the case most of the time. Let me clear this to you as it’s not gambling but it has a concept similar to it.

I am sure that you will enjoy this one like you do watching gambling anime. In this anime, some students are trapped in their school. They can’t leave the school until they complete a task. Well, there is a bear who orders the students to murder each other. 

Yes, this is the task, if they don’t kill each other, they won’t be able to leave the school. This anime will give you a thrilling ride of emotions. The only difference is gambling is just a game but this isn’t one!

Like the name says it all, it’s about a Legendary Gambler, Tetsuya. In this anime, they play Mahjong. Tetsuya is a good player but when he encounters a player more skilled than him, his thoughts change. 

He vows to be the no.1 player and thus his journey starts right from there!

The story is set in the year 1947, therefore it also gives it a historic touch. In this period, many people chose to gamble to survive. Yup, because they were finding it difficult to make ends meet. Not every time gambling is a choice.

Gambling sounds fun but if we add a pinch of superpowers in it then the fun is infinite.  Mardock Scramble is a story about a girl named Rune Balot. She gains some super powers after she is brought back to life with Scramble but this was all in the manga. However since this one is a movie, it solely revolves around Rune trying to get Boiled (the psycho villain) a death sentence.

Her only clue is a chip that is hidden somewhere in a casino in Mardock. So yeah, no matter how much she hates gambling she has to gamble to find the chip.

This anime isn’t a typical one nor does it involve gambling. However, it has a concept similar to gambling or should I say scarier than it? It has a concept of the slave control method. Well, there is a device that can influence the brains of people. It also can control them as well.

It’s like a brutal game (duel) and the one who wins gets the authority to make the loser his/her slave. Yes, the loser has to do what the other one demands. In short, they also risk their precious things.  In this way, we can say that it’s gambling but with a unique twist.

This anime revolves around only one thing, and that is money, LOL because money is everything. Well, is it? (Let me know what you think about the statement). Let’s get to the point, Kimimaro Yoga is the protagonist. His life is the definition of porverty

Yoga has to struggle a lot to survive as he is financially weak. However, one day, luck knocks on his door, and a mysterious guy offers him a deal. The deal is about winning a game. In this game, the player bets on his future. Yes, dude, if you win you’ll be rewarded and if you lose, then you’ll also be rewarded but with something much much worse!

Yoga accepts the offer and starts his risky journey. I am sure while watching, you will question whether the one that knocked on Yoga’s door was luck or not? HAHA!

This anime will give you chills throughout the end. I literally had goosebumps watching this. Ginta is the MC and his life starts getting tougher after the Deadman Wonderland park incident. I won’t reveal what happens in the amusement park because that will be a major spoiler. 

However, surely that incident was deadly. That incident made Ginta’s life hell. Followed by a series of unfortunate events, he gets sent to a special prison. It’s a world where Ginta has to bet his life to survive. 

I am sure you’ll enjoy this thrilling ride!

It is a complete entertainment package giving you the fun of Isekai, Fantasy, Science fiction, and of course, gambling at the same time. The genre of Isekai and Fantasy makes it different and more fun than other gambling anime. 

The plot revolves around two siblings named Sora and Shiro. Their lives change when one day, they enter a world where games are no joke. There they have to gamble to solve particular issues. Oh yeah, the winners are also rewarded.

The best thing is it’s not only restricted to gambling and games. Yup, the story is super fun to watch and has a lot to offer.

This one has a really interesting concept. We all have heard about playing games by betting on life and all. However, this anime is intriguing because gambling starts right after death. Yes, you heard it, right, dude!

No need to worry about the death factor because the reward is amazing or really bad. Arbiters judge all these players based on how they played in the game. Then they decide whether the players should be reincarnated or not. It’s a pretty cool and exciting anime that will keep you hooked till the end.

Okay, guys, this one is super entertaining. In fact, it’s entertaining because it’s a complete package. There’s nothing that it doesn’t offer. The plot revolves around three teenagers named Izayoi, Asuka, and You. Their adventurous journey begins when they enter a new world.

In that world, they play different high stake games. You got that right, winning and losing matters a lot in such games. Secondly, the best part is our MCs aren’t some ordinary teenagers instead, they have some really cool psychic powers.

I simply enjoyed watching this anime because it’s a combo of sports and gambling. Gambling becomes even more interesting when it comes to sports. The MC of this anime is a baseball player who doesn’t play to win. Well, his main motive is to earn quick money.

The fun is doubled because of sports and mind games. Things aren’t as simple as it seems. Let’s watch how our MC, Tokuchi, deals with both sports and gambling together.

Oh dang, this anime is hella amazing. If you really love gambling, then you can’t afford to miss this one. Whenever you’ll search for the best gambling anime you’ll always find this one. Kakeguri has set the standards for others.

The thing that makes it exceptional is its school system. Yes, guys, it’s about school students who gamble. The school is for the elites and it teaches its students the techniques of manipulation and gambling at night. However, in the daytime, it’s similar to a regular school.

To make the story even more interesting, our MC lands in the school, and then she rocks in everything. Of course, there is a lot more to it, and it is extremely fun when our MC starts to gamble.

This story revolves around a guy named Kaiji who is deceived by his coworker. After that, his life started becoming hell. He had to repay debts and for that, he needed to earn money. All this made him do illegal stuff and that includes gambling.

This is not as simple as it sounds as his life became a lot tougher after that. Well, guys, it’s just that once you choose the wrong path, it’s not that easy to return. The darker side of gambling is highlighted in this anime.

 

Conclusion:

Best gambling anime

To conclude, I’d say, gambling is fun to watch and play with the family. However, it’s no fun when it costs us our life or anything. This is the lesson that every anime is giving us that gambling does cost us one thing or the other.

So, my lovelies, I am sure you will not involve yourself in this stuff! Am I right? Because I don’t want my friends to suffer! Okay, dude, that is all for now, and I hope you enjoyed reading the list. Let me know if you have any thoughts regarding this. Till then, see ya!
