It’s no secret we love celebrities! We like to listen to them on the radio and watch them on the big screen. We enjoy their extravagant lifestyles and can’t wait to read something new about them online. We’re in love with their celebrities and their lives.

Their hobbies also fascinate us, and some of them enjoy casino games. You might see them in Vegas or other famous casinos, and you shouldn’t be surprised to see them enjoying such games as they are high-rollers in spirit.

Some of them might prefer to enjoy casino games in private which is why they might go for online casinos. These sites offer a variety of table games, slots, and live dealer titles. So, celebs might like to play blackjack online, live poker, or some slot or bingo title in peace, in the privacy of their homes. They can also access their favorite games on the go as these are mobile-friendly casinos.

With that said, here are some celebs that don’t shy away from playing casino games

Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck is one of the most recognizable celebrities on the planet. He’s had a successful career that’s far from over having starred in films like The Town, and Good Will Hunting, and has portrayed one of the most iconic superheroes of all time – Batman. He’s also known to the tabloids and his fans as Jennifer Lopez’s husband.

When he’s not staring at the next blockbuster film, he likes to unwind by playing some poker. Ben has been spotted in Vegas a couple of times as he’s a skilled player and doesn’t leave the table without winning a few rounds. He’s also won the California Poker Championship in 2004 which shows you just how good he is.

Matt Damon

Matt and Ben have been buddies long before they starred in films together. They are still friends and are working on various projects. They are avid fans of casino games as they enjoy a bit of poker. Matt picked it up for his role in Rounders as he wanted to portray a person with proficient poker skills. His love for poker was born and he’s been seen at various poker tables showing his skills. With Ben at his side, he’s likely a skilled player that has walked away from many tables after landing a few prizes.

Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson doesn’t seem like the kind of person that likes casino games in their free time, but the opposite is quite true. She is known for being a sex symbol of the 80s and 90s and doesn’t look bad today. She’s also starred in some motion pictures and is probably remembered for her role in Baywatch. When she’s looking to unwind, she enjoys visiting the nearby casino and playing some slots. Her passion for slots has brought the attention of fans as well as slot game developers which have brought about some sponsorships for the bombshell actress.

Jennifer Tilly

Jennifer Tilly is another actress known for her beauty and her performances in all sorts of films throughout the 90s. She’s also known for her performance on the poker table as she has had a passion for the game since she was a kid. Jen stated her father had taught her how to play.

By actively participating in poker games and tournaments she’s become a skilled poker player. In other words, Tilly’s the only player on this list to have a Worlds Series of Poker bracelet to her name. You might not see her that often on the big screen, but she’s pretty frequent at poker tables.

Tobey Maguire

Mr. Maguire is probably known for his portrayal of Peter Parker, better known as Spider-man. But he’s starred in several films since then and has proved to be a capable actor. He’s also proven to be a skilled poker player that doesn’t shy away from playing the game at his nearest casino.


As mentioned before, celebrities have extravagant lifestyles and some of them like playing casino games to unwind. Poker seems to be a popular game they enjoy, but some of them might enjoy slots, blackjack roulette, and other kinds of casino titles. This is just another proof that celebs aren’t that different from us we have similar hobbies.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
