The Funniest Casino Jokes & Each State’s Favorite Joke



The Funniest Casino Jokes & Each State’s Favorite Joke

One of the best ways to understand the culture of a particular country, or even a specific area of that country, is through humor. While laughter is a universal language, your joke will be received with varying measures of success in different areas around the globe.

And it’s not just cultural humor—say, British vs. American—different areas of life cater to different types of jokes. Whether it’s a bar joke, a practical joke, a sports joke, or even as niche as a lawyer joke – there is usually a wisecrack to cater for all! There is a casino and gambling joke culture, too, if you can believe it.

So, As July 1 is official International Joke Day, the wannabe comedians here at took a short break from reviewing casino sites and decided we wanted to find out what each US state’s favorite joke type was, to see how much this differentiated from state-to-state. 

To do this, our research and analytics team used Google Trends and search volume metrics to measure 23 of the nation’s favorite wisecracks, everything from dad jokes to toilet humor. 

Selfishly, we also wanted to find out if any state in particular prefers casino or gambling jokes more than any other (spoiler alert, they don’t).

And given the day that’s in it, why not share our top casino jokes in 2024? Disclaimer – laughter is not guaranteed, although it is encouraged.

What Is Each State’s Favorite Type of Joke in 2024?

Given that International Joke Day is coming right up, we decided to take a look at what each state’s favorite type of joke was. The truth is, we were hoping some of you would lean towards casino jokes, which wasn’t the case, but that didn’t stop us anyway.

  • The practical joke emerged as the nation’s favorite type of joke overall, with 22 states in total choosing it as their #1, and a further 11 states had practical jokes in their top three.
  • The classic knock-knock joke also performed well, featuring five times in the #1 spot and a further 19 times across the top three lists. The one-line joke and “yo-mama” joke categories also proved to be extremely popular among Americans over the last 12 months.
  • There was some support for Trump-based jokes, with two states—Nevada and New Mexico—having this category emerge as their top joke type in the last 12 months. Biden-based jokes, on the other hand, were the wisecrack of choice for only North Dakota.

As mentioned previously, not a single state had a casino or gambling-related joke even enter their top three. So the joke’s on us, I guess.

  • Oregon natives need to get their minds out of the gutter, if the data is anything to go by. The Beaver State’s favorite gag appears to be the sex joke
  • Iowa and Wisconsin, on the other hand, leaned towards flatulence humor as their best-loved wisecracks. Real mature guys and girls of Iowa and Wisconsin.
  • South Dakota can be crowned the nerdiest joke state after data revealed natives are fond of mathematical jokes. The mathematical joke came in second place on their list after the dad joke, which proved quite popular overall, appearing 11 times in the top three lists.
  • Riddle me this if you’re from Michigan: why do you like riddle jokes so much? We’re not sure why, but that’s Michiganites most admired old chestnut. Why do they love riddle jokes? Maybe because they’re always trying to figure out what the Great Lakes “state” of mind is. Anybody…?

  • Data was collected over a 12-month period from June 25, 2023 – June 26, 2024
