Gambling can be one of the most enjoyable hobbies when practiced safely, and whether the individual is an amateur player using online casinos, or a professional taking part in tournaments across the globe – you might be surprised to learn that there are even some celebrities that love the activity. We’ve decided to talk about 3 of some of the most famous faces in the world who just so happen to be in love with gambling and betting and you’ll find a little more on each of them just below.

Ben Affleck

One of the biggest actors in Hollywood, with dozens of blockbuster movies under his belt, Ben Affleck is also a huge fan of gambling, both on and offline. Ben is notoriously skilled at gambling and has even been rumored to have a few online accounts where he plays against other players for fun, and real cash. We’re not sure if you’ll find him on the biggest betting apps Australia has to offer, but we have no doubt that avid poker players may have come across him at some point without even realizing it.

Brad Pitt

Another incredibly famous face, Brad’s gambling activities didn’t begin until after he filmed Ocean’s 11, where he was introduced to the concept of games like Black Jack, Roulette and arcade machines. Since then, he’s gone on to enjoy spending for fun, and more competitively, although he said that he’d never go on to become a professional because it would stop being so much fun for him. We tend to agree, as would many players.

Paris Hilton

This model, actress and heiress isn’t just a pretty face – she’s also a notorious poker player, too, with anonymous accounts set up online to enjoy her hobby without being pursued by the paparazzi. A few years ago during a trip to Vegas, Paris allegedly won quite a substantial amount of money and this only added fuel to her fire when it came to her passion for gambling.

These are just a handful of some of the most prominent celebrity gamblers that are well-known for their habits, but we couldn’t end this piece without at least making a few honorable mentions, including Matt Damon, Charles Barkley, and 50 Cent – all of which are A-list stars that enjoy nothing more than placing a bet at the roulette table, or showing off their poker face from time to time.
