Paris Hilton and Other Celebrities Who Won Big Gambling

They say you gotta play big to win big, and if anyone can afford to play big, it’s socialite Paris Hilton.

Paris headed to Las Vegas to celebrate her 31st birthday, and she had plenty of reason to celebrate, after she cashed in $30,000 while playing blackjack at Wynn Las Vegas.

After the win, Paris Tweeted: “#BirthdayGirlsLuck. I love gambling.”

After hitting up the blackjack table, Paris headed to XS Nightclub with her sister Nicky Hilton and her parents. Paris’ rumored boyfriend, Afrojack, was also at the bash, taking over the helms of the turntable.

Ben

Paris certainly isn’t the first celebrity to win big gambling. Ben Affleck is said to be the best gambler in Hollywood. The trained poker player won $356,000 at the California State Poker Championship in 2004.

Candy

And Candy Spelling doesn’t need it, but she won $90,000 in Vegas last year. And if that’s not enough, back in 2007, she won $200,000 and in 2008, she won $180,000! For most of us, that’s retirement.

50

50 Cent needs to change his name to 50 Mil. Have you seen his MTV Cribs episode? He lives in a club! Anyway, the rapper Tweeted that he raked in half a million by betting that the Giants would beat the 49ers at the 2012 NFC Championship game.

They did, and 50 tweeted a photo of himself holding $500,000 in cash.
After that, he bet that if The Giants lost, he would tweet a naked photo of himself. Sadly, they won.

J.Lo

But none of these beat Jennifer Lopez’s mom’s win. Guadalupe Lopez invested $3 in an Atlantic City $1 slot machine. Her reward? $2.4 million.
