The bet is on and the wager is so great, funny or nasty that the ambition to win the bet whips up the adrenaline. The fact is, for a really good bet, the wager is absolutely essential. Bet these 50 bet ideas for friends will bring the losers to the brink of despair, provide a crazy amount of laughter and make the winners scream out loud with joy?

Betting among friends is crazy fun – if it’s a good bet, where the winner is completely open and the bet is really attractive. The more the ambition is fueled in everyone who bets to win the bet (or yes not to lose) the more tension, fun and excitement is created. And, of course, the sheer luck of winning. So a good bet with an awesome wager has everything that makes a good game. The important thing is that the bet ideas for friends may strain or even stretch the comfort zone and they may be quite embarrassing – but the personal pain threshold of none of the fellow bettors, may be exceeded. So it must be okay for all who participate to redeem the betting debt. Because betting debts are debts of honor, that is, who loses, can shirk with no reason in the world to fulfill them.

What are the best bets? The answer is clear: the ones that everyone just wants to win – or definitely not lose on nasty bets. We’ve divided our bet ideas into desirable, funny and nasty bet ideas for friends for a better overview. Bet these harmless, super nasty and enormously funny bets will cause good mood, laughter and many a bead of sweat?

The bet is not with a friend but with your crush or your crush? Different exciting, romantic and tingling are these bets for couples!

What Is a Good Bet?

You can bet on just about anything. Betting that you don’t know all the lyrics to the song? Betting that Liverpool FC will win the soccer match? Bet that I can make you laugh in 3 minutes and you can’t stay serious? Top, the bet is on! And what are we betting now? What exactly are the rules? There are criteria you should use to choose what to bet on and what bets are particularly good, and here they come:

  1. If you already have a bet going and are looking for a wager, there is one absolutely essential criterion you should pay attention to for your proposal: The wager is fun – most of all for the winner!
  2. Wagering must be worthwhile! The best bets are funny and make you laugh. Okay, maybe not the loser in the situation itself, but afterwards they do. Many stories have happened in betting that friends are still telling each other decades later. Seen in this way, bets and good bets provide material for legends.
  3. Original funny bets will be remembered. It is important that just the diabolically nasty bet ideas for friends are okay for everyone. Everyone must be clear that you can lose – that makes the special charm and the thrill!
  4. The fun is in the foreground. Anything that is below the belt or exceeds the personal pain threshold is not a good bet.

The Best Funny, Nasty and Desirable Bet Ideas for Friends

Harmless bets sound boring at first reading – but they are not. By that I mean bet ideas for friends where you don’t have to leave your comfort zone, or only a little bit. At least, hardly in comparison with the diabolically nasty bets, where you scream with happiness as a winner and have to swallow sometimes as a loser. Also, most of the funny bets are not for the faint of heart or someone who is embarrassed by everything. But most of them definitely have what it takes to become an anecdote that you’ll all remember fondly.
