To 'whale' in a game or 'whaling' is a term for gamers or gambling addicts who spend a good huge amount of money on video games or casinos. Since a whale is huge and they pay hugely for gambling or gaming, you can see why this is a thing.

With gamers, microtransactions existed for them within free-to play games (e.g. loot boxes, in-game currency, booster packs, cosmetics, etc.), gacha-like games, mobile games, battle-royale games or anything along those lines.

Gamblers are people who whale tons of cash on slot machines, poker and other natures of casino games and gambling.

"Whales" was a phrase first used by video game publishers to describe their main customers who insufferably liked to gamble their money for in-game items.
Bob: "Hey, Dylan. Guess what happened: I convinced my mum to buy me V-bucks and I spent a heck load on Fartnite last night. So cool, dude."

Dylan: "That game is for toddlers. I see why you needed her to buy it for you. Because toddlers rely on their mummies, and you like to whale money within a crappy game, to buy things you don't need. Player Ultimate Battlegrounds is way better than your game."

Sarah: "Guys, guys, guys... come on. It's not that bad. I spend my free time whaling my student funds on Weeb/Grand Order to get the best units with Gacha hatchers and to be a better player, haha... I think I'm the worst than both of you combined."

Whaling refers to a sex act that mimics how whales mate. The female is face up, on her back, and many other males (possibly up to 10) will lie next to her and try to reach her genital region with their extremely long male organ. They first one to reach her vagina (i.e. the male with the longest dick) wins the procreation game! Also called “side doggy style” or “96-ing”.
Dude, I had such a wild night whaling last night with that chick and those other dudes. I even won the whaling competition because I had the biggest schlong!

While skinny dipping you dive under water and make sure that your rear end breaks the surface while letting out a fart. If successful this will mimmick a whale blowing out air.
