Hello folks,

I want to write an article about celebrities with an online gambling problem. I know there are many celebrities with a 'regular' gambling problem, but I'm focussing on those who have serious issues with online gambling or betting.

Maybe you guys can help me.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

Baccarat addiction
Gladys KnightAmerican singer-songwriter Gladys Knight started gambling when she lived in Las Vegas and Reno. Actually, she wasn’t much of a gambler but the casinos in Nevada dragged her into the scene. Knight became addicted to baccarat and she could easily bet $45,000 per session.

I knew about Nicolas husband`s problem, so it was weird to see her in Supercasino.com adverts before Big Brother.

One celeb, that I think has the biggest addiction is Phil Ivey. Those who don`t know he is probably the greatest poker
player of all time, always keeping his cool when playing cards. Then playing craps and whatever and losing millions :confused:

Do you have any sources of Riise having had a gambling problem? I haven't heard about it before, and find it a bit weird if Betsson would have hired a guy whos been a problem-gambler.

Probably because they could pay him with casino credits with a x40 wager requirement, which he would subsequently lose.
