Rich and Famous Who Have Won Big Amounts In Slots

Lesson Plan

Celebrities are no strangers to the world of gambling and some of the names that crop up as keen celebrity gamblers might actually surprise you. For the rich and famous, gambling is about the thrill of the game, rather than the chase of making some side cash.

Multi millionaire movie stars can also afford to try to win big as they can take the financial hit if the opposite happens. They are not the best of gambling role models because they have far more disposable income than your average punter. Celebrity gamblers may be on another level when it comes to gambling but many of them frequent regular casinos and they rub shoulders with their fans and other everyday people - win free spins and more.
