Frequently Asked Questions

Can gambling make you rich?

Judging by the list we have compiled, gambling can make you rich. However, gambling involves many risks and significant losses, too. Leaning on it as your sole source of income isn’t the best idea, as all Casinos stack the odds against you.

Are there billionaire gamblers?

Yes, there are. Some of the richest gamblers in the world do earn billions. However, their total wealth doesn’t only come from gambling; practically all of them have other business ventures. For example, Bill Benter is a billionaire gambler who earned part of his fortune on blackjack card counting, and the other part through his gambling software company. His net worth is around one billion dollars. 

Are there any successful gamblers?

There are many successful gamblers out there. Take a look at our list and read up on Bill Benter, Tony Bloom, Edward Thorp, Andrew Black, and Zeljko Ranogajec, who are some of the most successful gamblers in the world.

Can a gambler ever stop?

Conscious gamblers are aware of their betting limits and know when to take breaks or stop altogether, as uncontrolled gambling will always lead to addiction. If you develop a habit that’s becoming less and less fun, do not hesitate to reach out for help through psychotherapy, medication, or support groups.

Can gambling be a career?

If you’re planning on gambling full-time and leaving your regular job, you’d better reconsider. Although professional gamblers do exist and have successfully made a career out of gambling, it is a risky job with unstable income and extremely high possible losses. Most of the richest gamblers got their winnings by pure luck and had already lost a fortune before that.
