50 Cent

Curtis Jackson has done very well investing his money in Vitamin Water and other businesses, and has also made a couple well known large bets on sporting events that paid off big for him big time. He tweeted once that a voice told him to bet $500,000 on the New York Giants against the San Francisco 49ers in the 2012 NFC Championship game, which was a winner, and he bet $1 million on his friend Floyd Mayweather Jr. when he fought Oscar de la Hoya, which also paid out for him.

Michael Jordan

Arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, and well known for his strong competitive streak, MJ is known for being willing to bet on almost anything, whether it is a golf game against a friend, card games at a casino, or whether his bags will come off of a plane first. He’s supposedly lost millions over the years, but has a net worth of about $650 million according to Forbes, so he can easily afford it.


This well known rapper loves to throw money around at the sportsbooks, losing $2 million on the Miami Heat – Dallas Mavericks NBA finals several years ago, and winning $1 million by betting on the Green Bay Packers in their last Super Bowl. He’s also the uncle of NFL running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and when his nephew’s team made it to the 2012 Super Bowl, he was so confident in their chances to win that he tweeted about his willingness to bet $5 million on the New England Patriots. A major gambling site saw his boast, and called his bluff, which would have been his biggest bet yet. You know he has the money to play with, so this was a great test of his confidence in his nephew.
