Some have great success, while others fail catastrophically or even get outright banned from entering a casino, as was the case with NBA Hall-of-Famer Allen Iverson.

From card games such as poker, solitaire, and blackjack to chance-based games like roulette and slot machines, there are enough options to provide celebrities with a lifetime of entertainment, provided they don’t go bankrupt in the process.
