In addition to luxury yachts and sprawling villas, stars know how to spend their money, and casinos simply love them for it. Some of the most famous Hollywood stars are as active at casino tables as they are on the big screen. Some of these names might be obvious while some may surprise you.
Charlie Sheen has lived a life of excess, so it comes as no surprise that he is an active gambler. In fact, he is so active on the gambling scene that his ex-wife Denise Richards claims that he would spend about $20 000 a week on sports betting.
Affleck is one of Hollywood's most bankable stars, and apparently, he is just as bankable at the casinos. He is constantly seen at the poker and blackjack tables and has even won the California State Poker Championship in 2004. In fact, in 2014, Affleck was banned from the blackjack table in Las Vegas for being too good.
Another Hollywood heavyweight who is a constant fixture at casinos, Toby Maguire is known for his love of gambling after being taught the game by a professional poker player. He has even been sued for participating in an illegal gambling ring. According to those in the know, he is a really good player and an equally bad loser.
Tiger Woods has been rumoured to spend as much as $25 000 on a single hand when he is out gambling. In addition to excelling on the golf course, Woods is also quite good at the blackjack table, where he wins up to $1 million on a nightly basis.
Just like best buddy Ben Affleck, Matt Damon also enjoys the occasional gamble. In fact, Damon spent $25 000 on gambling in preparation for his role in the movie Rounders.
Pamela Anderson may be better known for donning that famous red bathing suit and slow-running on the beach, but apparently, she is quite the poker player as well. In fact, it is rumoured that her marriage to Rick Salomon was a result of a $250 000 bet she lost against him.
