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!

BTC Surged Again as A Safe Haven Asset During Global Tensions

  • India – China Border Conflict

After weeks of squabbling and brawling along their long-disputed border, hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a deadly clash Monday in a river valley that’s part of the region of Ladakh last week. Troops had massed on both sides of the border in recent months in the northern India region of Ladakh and the southwestern Chinese region of Aksai Chin, causing global concerns of a potential escalation between the two.

  • North and South Korea Clash

Last Tuesday, North Korea destroyed the liaison office it jointly operates with South Korea in the city of Kaesong, just north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries. 

North Korea also said it would send troops to now-shuttered joint cooperation sites on its territory, reinstall guard posts and resume military drills at front-line areas in a violation of separate 2018 deals with South Korea. Jeong said South Korea will take “immediate, swift and corresponding” steps to any North Korean provocation.

The tensions grown in Asia and the potential “second wave” of coronavirus in the United States may add more difficulties to the global economic recovery. Thus, Bitcoin, as a safe haven asset, attracts more investors to buy and hold.
