Professional Golfer John Daly has admitted in his tell all book that he lost $1,500,000 playing $5,000 slot machines (at Ballys). So sayeth Mr. Daly:

"If I don't get control of my gambling, it's going to flat-out ruin me"

Not to be out done in this celebrity loser fest, Charles Barkley, former NBA star admitted losing $10 Million at Bellagio and Mirage (playing roulette). Mr. Barkley estimates Daly's losses to run in the $20 million range, not the $60 million range Daly states.

Slots & Roulette? C'mon guys... if you're gonna gamble at least pick a game that can be beaten (occasionally) - we suggest taking $15 bucks and buying a copy of Beat the Dealer by Edward O Thorpe. You can thank us later.
