Celebrities in Gambling

There you are! How is it going? I’ve got something hot to share with you today. Did you know that we have something in common with world famous celebrities?

They gamble, too! Gee, nobody would have thought that even the top dogs of Hollywood share their passion with us. And so, here are some famous celebrities that you may just chance upon in top casinos online or offline.

Ben Affleck



Oh, yes! Batsy is a known patron. Though I have never seen him play slot machines, it is safe to assume that he plays this from time to time. Often, Mr Batfleck is seen playing table games. Back in 2001, Ben went into rehab for his gambling and alcohol problems.

And certainly, this is not because of his career. That was a great year for our idol due to Pearl Harbor. It will be two years later that he would release movies with bad critic reviews like Daredevil and Gigli. But anyway, he is all good now and we are hoping to see the latest film with Ben starring called «Triple Frontier».

Shannon Elizabeth


Remember that hot lady in American Pie who Jim Levenstein was supposed to have sex with while on a broadcast? That is no other than Shannon and she has found a new profession in poker. Rumour has it that she has her own casino at home!

She is also an advocate of animal rights. Apart from gambling, she maintains a website called Animal Avengers to help protect animal rights. She has also endorsed casino promotions by joining celebrity tournaments like Celebrity Poker Showdown in Caesars Palace.

Charles Barkley


This guy right here is one of the nemeses of Michael Jordan. Aww, c’mon. Do not tell me he is old at 55. Let us talk about celebrities from history and nowadays. Sir Charles, also called the Round Mound of Rebound, is a 6’ 6” powerhouse in the NBA from 1984 to 2000. He was awarded the prestigious MVP title and was a consistent All-Star player.

Today, he is an outspoken critic and sports analyst. He once admitted that his gambling problem cost him $10 million! Ouch! That must have hurt!

Charlie Sheen



Oooh, boy! Who has not heard of this madman’s ranting and antics? Nobody.

Catapulted to fame for his show Two and a Half Men, Charlie has had it rough and was on a downhill slope. This was made evident with his divorce from Denise Richards, his relationship with a known porn star, and his gambling addiction. According to his ex-wife, he was spending roughly $20,000 in gambling per week.

Per week, my friend! But he didn’t care. After all, he was paid millions per episode. You and I can only dream of having a TV show for a cash cow while this guy had the time of his life.

So there it is! We’ve got four celebrities who have the same passion as ours. Hopefully, we get to meet these guys in person and play with them in the same casino. But who knows? They might be lurking online somewhere out there.
