Gambling is one of the most popular entertaining things in the world. Whichever tourist destination you visit, there will be casinos on almost every corner. The main reason why people gamble is not making money. They like the doze of adrenalin that they feel while waiting for the game to end. Despite that, it is always entertaining to test your luck.
Celebrities are not different a lot from an average person. They make a lot of money and they are looking for entertaining ways to spend it. Some of them rather choose to invest in a business; others would rather prefer to go on a tour around the world. However, there are also those that like to spend a part of their income on different casino games.
We suppose that the list could be a lot longer from ours. Yet, we want to highlight some of the most celebrities that are huge fans of gambling.
The illusionists and “mind-readers” are probably the most unwanted guests of casinos. Well, it seems that Derren Brown confirms this statement. This worldwide famous illusionist started to gamble even before he became famous. He was visiting some of the most popular casinos in London. Unfortunately, his professional gambling career didn’t last long. The reason for that is simple – he was too good.
Some casino employees testified that Derren never invested a huge amount of money. His bets were small, and he knew how to win always. Anyway, believe it or not, Brown was also banned from the Broadway Plaza Casino located in Birmingham. It happened a few years ago when he tried to play blackjack. You probably understand why he was banned.
Well, the Canadian funny man can make you laugh, but he was a huge lover of gambling. Believe it or not, this guy usually did not cash in his chips. Instead, he would put them in his fridge and wait to come to the casino next time and gamble again.
So, Canadians, you can be proud. It seems that one of the citizens of your country is one of the biggest gambling lovers in the world. If you want to find yourself on this list, then visit this website and test your luck. Maybe you will become even more popular than Norm Macdonald.
If you do not know, Victoria is a famous writer and presenter in British panel shows. Many people know here because of her high-quality presenting and writing, but that’s not the only talent that she has. She is also a poker player.
Victoria made one huge success. She was a winner of a European Poker Tour in 2006. Despite that, she also attended many poker tournaments. For instance, she was also a winner of the European Poker Tour Sanremo in 2014. Until now, she earned around 2 million pounds thanks to poker. She prefers to play Texas Hold’em Poker and you can often find her playing at Victoria casino in London.
Well, Spiderman is not only brave and smart. Despite saving people, he is also a professional poker player. Still, his story associated with poker is turbulent. In 2011, he was sued for being part of an illegal gambling ring. A few million dollars were involved in this case.
He started to improve his poker skills from Daniel Negreanu, the popular Canadian professional poker player that won the World Series of Poker 6 times. Still, Tobey was not inspired by Daniel to start playing poker. He was a casino lover when he was still a teenager. It seems that poker is some sort of passion for him.
Would it be able to write the list about alcohol sex or gambling without mentioning Charlie Sheen? He deserves to get a reward for the craziest lifestyle ever. Anyway, he started gambling from the “early ages”. So, if you thought that “Two and a Half Men” actor is only famous for his sense of humour, then you are wrong.
However, why wouldn’t he test his life in casinos? He was making 1.8 million dollars per episode of the famous TV show. His ex-wife Denise Richards testified that Sheen was spending around 20 thousand dollars each week on sports betting.
It seems that producers of “Two and a Half Men” were picking the main actors in a specific way. One of the important characteristics was obviously that their main actors need to be a casino lover. Just like Charlie Sheen, Ashton Kutcher is also a gambler.
Some sources say that Kutcher used a front for the biggest sports betting syndicate in America. According to Esquire magazine, he earned around 750 thousand dollars per month thanks to college football. However, it doesn’t need to surprise us why this actor is successful in the gambling as well. He knows the right moment to invest money. He already invested in Uber, Spotify, and many other successful companies.
This Academy Award-winning Actor, director, and screenwriter did not only achieve success in the movie industry. He is also a huge lover of blackjack and online poker. More precisely, he won the California State Poker Championship back in 2014.
However, his gambling story is also amazing. As we said, blackjack was his favourite game. Ben Affleck was quite good at winning hands and because of that he was banned from playing this game in Las Vegas casino. Because of him, the casino would probably stop working and they had to do something.
This famous actress claims that poker playing is the second career that she has. Her “second career” started in 2005 when she was competing in the 2005 World Series of Poker. More precisely, she played a tournament at Caesar’s Palace and won a reward after beating the other 83 celebrities. At that moment, she won 55 thousand dollars. However, Shannon Elizabeth did not want to stop there. She also participated in National Heads-Up Poker Championship. Unfortunately, she was not a champion, but she reached the semi-finals. However, reaching that when you play against many highly experienced poker players is a huge success
