When we are talking about casino life and slot games, as often depicted in home entertainment films like Uncut Gems (2019) or Casino Royale (2006), we may not expect the stars who play in them to actually enjoy them in real life.

The allure of casino life and slot games is undeniable. In Canada alone, there are over 15,700 free slots available online. Some of these games even allow players to enjoy these games without risking any money.

Many celebrities, movie stars, and top musicians opt for online casinos to maintain privacy. Some from the entertainment industry may decide that gambling should be a private hobby for them, while others openly indulge in these games.

You may have heard of how stars like Ben Affleck are so into casino games. Here are four of the most well-known movie stars who are also big slot game enthusiasts.


Ben Affleck

On top of our list is the globally recognized movie star Ben Affleck, best known for his iconic portrayal of Batman. Affleck has a thriving career with notable roles in films such as The Town (2010), Gone Girl (2014), and Good Will Hunting (1997).

Also widely known as Jennifer Lopez’s husband, Affleck often finds relaxation away from the spotlight. When not headlining blockbuster films, he unwinds by playing poker.

His adept skills have earned him recognition in Vegas, where he has been spotted multiple times, leaving the table victorious. In fact, Affleck clinched the California Poker Championship in 2004, a testament to his prowess in the game.


Matt Damon

Second on our list and, coincidentally, a long-time friend of Affleck’s is Matt Damon. Damon is known for his tenure in movies like The Martian (2015) and Ford v Ferrari (2019), among many others.

Affleck and Damon have collaborated on many projects before, and it turns out that the two share a similar passion beyond movies, as well. Both men have been seen frequenting poker tables together, which for Damon stemmed from his role in Rounders (1998).


Pamela Anderson

Contrary to expectations, the Canadian-American actress Pamela Anderson has a surprising fondness for casino games. Now 56 years old, Anderson is best known for her modelling work in Playboy magazine and her role as “C.J.” Parker on the television series Baywatch. She is also widely recognized as an 80s and 90s sex symbol.

During visits to Las Vegas, Anderson often unwinds at a nearby casino and indulges in the latest and the newest slots. This unexpected passion has not only captured the attention of fans but also garnered sponsorships from slot game developers.

Her affinity for casino games has led to her being featured in a slot game released by Bally Gaming in 2005, titled “Pamela Anderson Playboy Slot.” The slot machine was launched at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and featured Anderson’s image on it.


George Clooney

Last but not least on our list is George Clooney, known for his iconic portrayal of Danny Ocean in the 2001 version of Ocean’s Eleven. Clooney has also had acclaimed roles in other films such as Up in the Air (2009) and Gravity (2013).

Clooney has solidified his status as one of the greatest movie stars in the last decade. His interest in slots, however, was sparked during breaks from filming the Ocean’s franchise, particularly at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

The abundance of first-class slot machines there provided Clooney with ample choices during his leisure moments on set. In August 2005, it was announced that Clooney and nightclub developer Rande Gerber had signed on to invest a significant, undisclosed amount of money in the Las Ramblas Resort. While the resort had plans to include a casino, the project had to be cancelled.
