celebrities that love casinos

The wonderful world of casino, eh? Over the years it has proved itself more than capable of commanding a huge crowd of people from across the spectrum of society, and this has only been intensified by the emergence of online casinos like Kings Casino that has made it truly accessible for pretty much everyone. 

The majority of the global population love to dabble in a spot of casino gambling, that much is evident, but if you look to the celebrity world you will quickly find that their passion for casinos greatly outweighs that of any other portion of society. And anyway, why wouldn’t you gamble if you have a fortune the size of some of the celebrities we are going to look at in this article? Without further ado, let’s take a look at some celebrities that love casinos. 

Toby Maguire 

Millions of kids were enthralled by Toby Maguire’s Spiderman character, and for good reason too – is there anything cooler than a man swinging through the Manhattan skyline using spiders webs? Well, being a professional poker player who is reported to have won over 10 million dollars in his gambling career might just top it, and Toby Maguire is both! 

He is said to have learnt his skills from Daniel Negreanu, a famous Canadian professional poker player who has won the World Series 6 different times – no wonder Toby Maguire loves the casino, eh? Unfortunately, however, Maguire was also busted in 2011 for being part of an illegal gambling ring, and ended up being sued for millions of dollars, ironically becoming one of the miscreants that Spiderman would track down in the films. 

Derren Brown 

Derren Brown is famous for his various tricks of the mind that can leave onlookers quite literally speechless, and he is also a master mathematician, meaning that he is particularly well suited to the world of casino gambling. In fact, Derren Brown was a keen gambler well before he reached the level of fame he is at now, and he was also very good indeed. 

According to some people he quite literally never lost, and casinos soon had enough – he is banned from many of them in London and Birmingham. Perhaps the most famous aspect of Derren Brown’s love of gambling, however, comes as a result of his Channel 4 TV show where he attempted to correctly guess the outcome of a roulette spin, and in a separate show the outcome of the lottery. 

Victoria Cohen-Michael 

Victoria Cohen-Michael has been a key part of British TV panel shows for quite some time now, and as it turns out she has also been running a particularly successful professional poker career at the same time too. In fact, she was the first women to ever win the European Poker Tour title in 2006. 

Since then her total winnings stand at well over 2 million pounds, proving that her passion for casino gambling is no mere flash in the pan. We wish her the best of luck in the future!

Elon Musk Advises Crypto Users To Secure Their Crypto Keys Properly

Published

on

The crypto community has not gotten over the fact that the world’s richest man has now invested in Bitcoin and has been pretty active in the industry.

However, the community is now receiving security tips for storing cryptocurrencies from Tesla’s chief executive officer. While pointing the security of cryptocurrencies, Tesla also criticized Freewallet app, a crypto wallet for its slack in security.

He also added that crypto investors should not bother doing business with wallets that don’t provide them with private keys.

Users should store their private keys

The unique way cryptocurrencies are stored makes them not redeemable when the keys are lost. Whether the holder stores them with third-party custodians or exchanges, the owner can only claim them when they provide keys to the crypto funds.

That makes securing the keys the most important thing when dealing with cryptocurrencies. As a result, selecting the safest hot or cold wallet is a priority if users want to keep their crypto investments safe.

Elon Musk has come out to advise investors to always store their private keys personally. For a company to receive the attention of the world’s richest man is something to take advantage of to grow. However, FreewalletApp’s short conversation with Musk is a sort of negative publicity to them.

After the company engaged with Musk about a Dogecoin-related post, the Tesla founder pointed out faults with the firm.
He advised digital asset investors to stay…

Musk’s Tweets also impacted Dogecoin’s price

Tesla also added that it will start accepting Bitcoin payments for all its products, although this will be based on a limited basis and applicable laws. If the company concludes and starts accepting cryptocurrency, it will make it the first major car manufacturer to accept Bitcoin payments. The company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk has developed an interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

He has been tweeting severally about the viability of the Dogecoin (DOGE), which doesn’t have an important market value attached to it.

Few hours after endorsing Dogecoin, the cryptocurrency rose by an impressive 50%. But regulatory authorities are still concerned about the risks in cryptocurrency investments, with several regulatory bodies warning traders and investors they could lose all their money from crypto investments.

But for Tesla, the company decides to diversify its funds and increased its cash returns. However, Tesla also warned investors about the volatility of Bitcoin’s price in its SEC filing. According to the SEC…
