Everyone (celebrities included) has a story about flying to Las Vegas for a weekend and winning – or blowing – tens of thousands of dollars. But casinos are not missing out on the post-millennial consumer-convenience boom in their efforts to lure even more big bets. In 2017, gamblers can play the ponies with their cell phone, indulge in online poker, or even place a million-dollar bet on the Super Bowl without leaving home. Some of them even love to play online roulette games from their mobile.
Still, many Hollywood A-listers prefer to wager the old-fashioned way, throwing dice or counting cards at a table filled with revelers and surrounded by paparazzi. Here are seven of the most notorious gambling celebs.
