Whether they are making movies or in the studio, some of your favorite celebrities like to wind down and have fun playing games just like you. Let's take a look at some of the hottest celebrity gamers in Hollywood!
Jessica Alba grew up playing classic video games like Super Mario Brothers, Pac Man & Zelda. Who didn't love those games..they were so simple then."You just had the little guy that could walk and talk and the music was like doot doot doot," Alba says. Alba is now a lover of Wii Sports games like tennis, bowling & baseball. Sasha Fierce aka Beyonce loves to play online games anonymously, who would have guessed it? The next time you're online playing games like spades or www.partybingo.com, Queen Bey could be playing right along with you.
Like most young guys, Zac Efron spends countless hours in front of the tv playing games. He has been spotted over the years at many video game launches and says that comic books along with video games are one of his guilty pleasures. Global superstar and pop princess Rihanna loves gaming..when she's not singing, instagraming or partying, guess what occupies her time? You guessed it video games! She's even been spotted rocking Hitman gear. Riri's favorite game is pretty bad ass. She takes the role of an assassin, killing enemies in pretty gruesome ways.
Usher has taken his love of video games to another level. He has partnered with XBOX and has his songs Euphoria & Twisted along with choreography are featured in Dance Central 3, so you can get your twerk and pop lock on. A few other artists featured on the game include Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga & Pitbull, and old school artists New Kids on the Block and Vanilla Ice, How awesome is that? "Gaming" has evolved to a whole new level!
Celebrities are always looking for ways to increase their riches -from the next movie role, album, or friendly little wager on their favorite sports team. Celebs lead a lavish lifestyle where money is no object. Rappers 50 cent and Birdman publicly threw around a few measly million dollars betting on last year's Giants vs Patriot's Superbowl game. 50 cent said he would bet 1 million dollars and Birdman offered 5 million dollars on the Patriots. In the past Birdman has bet 2 million dollars on NBA championships and lost it all. Celebrities like Michael Jordan also bet millions of dollars on rounds of golf . Michael Jordan even makes friendly "small" bets with fans on the golf course.
Charlie Sheen may have briefly lost his mind, but was able to keep his pockets flowing and stay "winning" (In addtion to his millions-of- dollars per episode paycheck on Two and a half men) by launching his own gambling website focusing on basketball, baseball and horseriding. You may not be a Hollywood High Roller, but you to can consider some sports betting sites to get started. Sometimes celebrities can be conservative..imagine that? George Clooney bet fellow actor John Krasinki 1 thousand dollars in a one-on-one game of baskeball Krasinki, 20 years younger than Clooney had been bragging that he could beat Clooney but ended up losing the game 8-11. Celebs already have the dough, you're probably wondering how you can have some fun and win BIG on some of your favorite sports? Well don't delay get your sports bet on….you never know, it could be your lucky day!

There are some celebs that love sitting down to a good old fashioned game of bingo. They seem to enjoy both in person and online bingo. Catherine Zeta Jones loves it so much that she throws annual Christmas bingo parties with her family. Sharon Osbourne even launched her own successful bingo website a few years ago. Other celebs that enjoy the game include Russell Crowe who once had an odd job as a bingo caller but got fired for being rude lol.
Beyonce also loves to unwind and play games online. The Queen Bee admitted to going into chatrooms anonymously to allure magazine:

The Celebrity Poker craze has taken the world by storm! When your favorite stars aren’t making movies or music they love to unwind in casinos and play poker. Celebs love the rush of high stakes poker. That REAL money poker. It’s great when you hit that winning streak,..but rumor has it that Jay Z lost half a mil on one hand in Vegas!! Other Hollywood high rollers include: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Tilly, Leonardo Di Caprio, Shannon Elizabeth & Tobey Maguire.
According to ABC, Ben Affleck was the first celeb to win a major open poker tournament. Last year, he beat out 90 players in the California State Poker Championship and won almost $400,000! The craze has also taken reality tv by storm. Over the past few years, there have been several shows dedicated to poker, specifically celebrity poker including: Celebrity Poker Showdown, Hollywood Poker Night, Poker Royale, Poker Superstars and the list goes on. Poker looks like a blast to play..and if you have the money..why not have some fun? You can even get some practice with online poker! It doesn’t look like this poker craze is going anywhere anytime soon!
Celebs always know how to have a good time. When they want to get away from the hustle & bustle of Hollywood and NYC, they hit Vegas! Many celebs are lucky enough to combine business with pleasure earning big bucks to host and party at famous nightclubs & lounges. A few months ago Charlie Sheen was reportedly offered $200,000 to host a party for one night, plus luxury jet & hotel …now that’s #winning! Speaking of hotels, if you want to
stalk err be sure to have some sightings, a few celebrity hot spots include The Venetian, Hard Rock Hotel, Caesars Palace , The Palms & MGM Grand. The Wet Republic at MGM is a popular spot for pool parties and a favorite for celebs like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Diddy. After the pool party, its time for some gambling. Celebrities love to drop dough on casino games.
These high rollers love playing poker, craps, and can spend hours unwinding at the blackjack table. Some have been known to spend over $5,000 or MORE per hand! Partying, gambling, sipping on expensive champagne. The sky seems to be the limit with these stars. Although we aren’t celebs we all can still have an amazing time in sin city. I was there two weeks celebrating my birthday. I even got to see Kim Kardashian’s fiance, Kris Humphries and a crew filming at The Venetian! If you want to unwind, and party like a rockstar you too can paint the town in Vegas.
