There is a certain idea about casinos that they are the realm of the rich and famous. In reality, they are open to everyone, but there is some kind of old time Hollywood glamour that still sticks around, meaning that when people think of a casino, they do think of movie stars and famous performers who might decide to play there.
The truth is, not all famous people like to gamble; some are perfectly content staying away from casinos – play live at King Casino. However, there are some who like to spend some of their considerable fortune at the casino tables. Here are some of them.
Ben Affleck seems to have been around for ages now, finding himself in a variety of different films ever since he first burst onto the screen in the 1990s. He is clearly a talented actor, but what you might not know about the man is that he is also a talented poker player, and he loves the game with a passion.
Not only does he love playing, he loves winning and he’s good at doing just that. Affleck has managed to add to his substantial movie star fortune with his jackpot winnings in a variety of different poker tournaments, proving that everyone has to have a hobby (and ideally one they are good at!).
To make things even better, Ben Affleck, who clearly doesn’t need the money he wins, does regularly donate it to charity.
Pamela Anderson rise to fame because of the iconic 90s TV show Baywatch. Seen as a ‘blonde bombshell’, Anderson had a rocky time of it in the media. There was one thing she could always rely on to make her happy though; gambling. After all, she made enough money through TV and film to allow her this little luxury.
Anderson’s favourite pastime is the slots of Las Vegas. If you’re lucky when you visit, you might see her playing. We wonder if she might have played on one of the many Baywatch themed slots that can be found both in Las Vegas and online – what would she think of seeing herself rendered in slot form?
Charlie Sheen is another star who loves a good casino, but the bad news for this icon is that he let things go too far, and his gambling addiction (as well as alcoholism) took over. But that has made him something of an expert when it comes to gambling and casinos, and although he still gambles far too much (making some very crazy bets), he has also won a good amount too.
Derren Brown might not be a major film star like the other people on this list, but he is definitely a well-known celebrity and he certainly likes gambling. However, he gambles in order to learn more about human nature and how the mind works rather than trying to win anything in particular; after all, he is a millionaire already.
This is probably a good thing as we’re fairly sure casino bosses would panic if they saw this mind reader enter their establishment.
