Slot machines and similar games like these are featured throughout pop culture, making the odd cameo appearance here and there in a number of shows and movies throughout history, as well as being quite popular in music videos and making appearances in fashion shoots for high end magazines.
It makes sense then, as slot games that gamblers chose to play more have garnered more of a glamorous presence in the same way that casinos have, that celebrities would start to get interested in playing them as much if not more than the usual kind of average person does.
Ben Affleck is American actor that has had a lot of success in his career, featuring in some of the most popular movies out there including the newest batman V Superman movie.
In Affleck’s own words, he had got so good at playing the casino fave blackjack that he got to a point where it was easy to count cards whilst playing his hand, which is a gambling strategy that although is legal, is frowned upon in the casino world. And as such, it is that which got him banned for life in the Vegas branch of the Hard Rock Cafe.
Woods is best known for being one of the highest paid athletes in the world, but he is also now one celebrity that is known for his love of casinos after he befriended fellow celebrities that love casinos Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.
Perhaps less surprising, this is one particular high flying rock and roller is said to be a regular at multiple casinos. In fact, some people that you might ask would even say he is all the more famous for it. According to the actor though, he has recently claimed that his gambling days are over, after having caused him trouble in his personal life and with his finances.
Another Charlie, this particular one was once a star of the basketball team Stars, and never tried to hide his love for the casino house. Apparently, in an interview, he said: “I went to Vegas a bunch of times and won a million dollars. Probably 10 times. But I’ve also gone to Vegas and lost a million probably three times as much.”
He has also said in a different interview that: “My agent has worked with me to try to get it where I can go and gamble and have fun. That’s easier said than done.” And, in the same interview, he admitted to having a gambling problem, and then denied it by saying he can afford to gamble, but that he has to get it under control because eventually, it might leave him broke. It is fun to know that there are celebrities out there who love slot machines as much as we do, as it shows that they are just people like us and how it really is just human nature to enjoy kicking back with a slot game or three to wind down after a hard day spent in the office – or the film studio.
