Revealing The Passion: Famous Celebrity Gamblers

January 29, 2014 Ben Affleck, Charlie Sheen, Denise Richards, Matthew Perry, Michael Jordan, Pamela Anderson, Tobey Maguire

If you come to think of it, celebrities are the best candidates when it comes to spending big and doing things in most extravagant ways. After all, they have the biggest numbers in their accounts. Therefore, who is more likely to spend a fortune in casinos? The famous people are, of course. At times they might have had enough of purchasing things and then perhaps the thrill of making more money through a few calculations or through simple luck seems appealing to them.

Michael Jordan. The A-list sportsman seems to have used gambling as a way to relax prior to big games. He would participate in high-stakes games and often lose. One businessman actually claimed at some point that Jordan would owe him $1.25 million. Many gambling stories involving him have been heard along the years, even
