Hollywood is essentially playground for the rich and famous who have more money than they know what to do with. Unfortunately, some stars chose to spend their fortunes in irresponsible ways. These are eight celebrities with gambling histories wilder than Miley Cyrus. Some celebs have been able to stop, while others are sliding down a slippery slope of debt and despair.

1. Ben Affleck

The Gone Girl actor reportedly went to rehab in 2001 for an alcohol addiction, but he’s also been rumored to have a gambling problem. Last year, Affleck was banned from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for counting cards at the blackjack table. The film maker cleared up the rumors saying that the casino only banned him from playing black jack, which he admits is his favorite game. Although Affleck denies having a gambling addiction he admits that he’s become “obsessed” with mastering blackjack and has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars perfecting his skill.

2. Pamela Anderson

The newly divorced former Baywatch babe admits she enjoys spinning the reels of slot machines, but says poker is definitely her favorite game. Anderson even revealed that she once paid off a poker debt with sexual favors saying, “I was playing poker one night… and I was down about 250 grand. He said if I made out with him, that would clear the bet. So, I paid off a poker debt with sexual favors and I fell in love. It’s so romantic.” Unfortunately, the romance died fairly quickly after. Thankfully, Pam has stopped gambling.
