Gambling & Entertainment: Best of the Show

Gambling has actually always been a popular activity for many people. Even in ancient times, the “little people” dreamed of getting rich within a very short time and without much work. To this day, little has changed in the fascination with gambling.


However, the tables or the machines in casinos have long been an enormous attraction not only for unknown visitors. Stars and starlets also like to have fun playing sophisticated games of chance and thus make it into the media again and again. In many places, casinos also stand for glitz and glamor, so that it is often very easy to reconcile with one’s own image to risk a few bets at roulette, blackjack, or poker.


The dress code in the hall of a casino naturally also ensures that you can profit yourself as a star there in the best possible light in this way, celebrities also ensure that fans think about a trip to a casino. It is therefore very important for the operators to attract as many celebrities as possible.




Although the appearances of stars in the casino are not new, the industry has changed a lot in recent years. When Frank Sinatra collected a lot of money for his appearances in the Sand Casino in the 50s, the operators had no competition to fear from the Internet.


In the meantime, things have changed significantly, which is why more and more casinos are attracting stars from all over the world with high fees for shows or short appearances in the hall.

This is a significant difference between land-based casinos and online casinos. Even the best online casino cannot offer live performances,  where players are able to watch these performers face to face.




Of course, online casinos still only have a certain market share, despite enormous growth in recent years. Traditional casinos are still places where extremely high sales are made, especially in gambling metropolises like Las Vegas or Macau, of course. One reason for this is certainly the fact that such casinos can be seen again and again in well-known films, in which games like baccarat or poker, in particular, stand for glamor and exude a very special fascination.


Some stars like actor Ben Affleck have also managed to train their own skills to such an extent that profits are almost guaranteed. Affleck has already banned the house in some casinos. The singer Lady Gaga, on the other hand, is said to have gambled away around half a million euros in a casino in Vienna – she will therefore avoid casinos in the future.




Las Vegas in particular has a long tradition of shows with well-known singers who perform in casinos and are intended to attract more visitors. Of course, playing at the tables or at the machines is not compulsory when traveling to a concert, but many visitors also like to take advantage of these offers.


In recent years, singers such as Celine Dion, Britney Spears, and Katy Perry have received high fees for their guest appearances in the gaming metropolis.
