Being a famous person always implies not only fame and glory but also unimaginable amounts of money. Wealth becomes a reason for various extraordinary hobbies and posh activities. Money breaks all existing rules of a boring everyday routine. Do you know where one can also spend big money? Casinos. Gambling is a stupefying mix of a risky atmosphere, absorbing vehemence and considerable bets.
Besides, a casino is a form of entertainment not everyone can afford. That is why playing is so common among famous people from different spheres. Today, we are going to discuss who is the luckiest star and who’s down on his or her luck.
There is no doubt that gambling is always connected with risks and challenges. There is never a stable guarantee that your bet will win. However, when speaking of celebrity gamblers, the losses can sometimes appear to be devastating. We have chosen five star-spangled gamblers.

Gladys Knight, American singer, and songwriter, who is also known by the name The Empress of Soul, earned fame as an incorrigible player. Though she was busy producing multiple R&B hits after her retirement in 2000, Gladys tried to dissemble her vice. Later, she recounted her struggle and fight against playing addiction in her autobiography. Her total losses never were announced, but they say that Gladys could spend $40,000 per night playing table games (blackjack and baccarat). Sports betting can also be ascribed to her front-runner games of choice.
Another famous producer also suffers from a venturous habit. David Milch abuses various staking pursuits. It is well known that once he lost $25 million playing in casinos. Milch made an attempt to pay off his debt and was able to pay back about $17 million. However, he failed in paying the total debt and that is the reason why they took possession of $100 million that he had amassed from his working. In addition to that, his wife wanted to get a divorce as she was no longer able to put up with Milch’s addiction.
Ray Romano, starred in the popular TV series “Men Of A Certain Age”. In fact, Romano’s character Joe Tranelli was also addicted to playing. One more curious fact is that Ray Romani himself is a celebrity gambler. His passion for playing got so bad that he had to seek help. In the end, he succeeded in overcoming his addiction and it definitely let him feel his character much better.
As we have already said, gambling is always connected with huge risks and sometimes the risk pays off. Touching on casinos, the risk is usually paid off quite bountifully. Here is our top-5 list of successful celebrities who won the fight against gambling.
However, the winner still can only be one. The only king among a wide range of superstars who are shaking the arena of betting. Have you got any guesses? Have you heard anything about Terrance Watanabe? Although Terrance is a successful businessman, it would not be a lie to say that he gained real popularity due to his gambling passion.
In fact, he is quite well-known among different world casinos, but his real star shined, in 2007, when it was reported that Terrance lost $127 million in one year. This sum refers to his losses in only two Las Vegas casinos – the Rio and Caesars Palace. One more interesting detail: Terrance hardly has outstanding playing skills – this was pointed out by casino employees. He only has the possibility to lose. Thus, in gambling, it seems that it is not talent, but luck, that determines your success.
