wayne-rooney-casino-gamblingManchester United footballer Wayne Rooney reportedly lost £500,000 in a two-hour casino gambling spree. He was seen betting heavy amounts on the blackjack and roulette tables in Manchester’s 235 Casino.

According to the Mirror, Rooney arrived at Manchester 235 alone, then started drinking beers and switching back and forth between his two favorite games.

Rooney was Gambling “In His Own World”

“He was gambling a lot on red (roulette) and seemed to be in his own world,” said one eyewitness.

Another onlooker added, “Wayne was being extremely reckless, laying down chips which amounted to massive bets. He was drinking bottles of beer. But he wasn’t drunk. He was more interested in the gambling than drinking.”

“He was gambling a lot on red when he was playing roulette — which seemed appropriate — and was putting long-shot bets on solo numbers. He kept losing but that just prompted him to bet more,” they told the Mirror.

“He was chasing his losses, which was just making things worse for him. People in the casino were looking at him and were stunned at what was happening.”

Trouble Ahead for Rooney?

Based on all of the losses, Rooney wasn’t have a good time at the casino.

“He was cursing under his breath and seemed to be in his own little world — fixated on the tables and all the machines around them,” said a casino patron.

Rooney’s big losing night will no doubt anger his wife, Coleen, who went on a trip with their sons during his gambling binge. The two argued over a £50,000 gambling debt that he racked up earlier in his career.

Rooney’s gambling habit goes back to his days as a teenage player at Everton. Of course, these days he can better afford the losses because he’s worth an estimated $26.1 million. Still, the Man. U forward can’t afford to keep losing a half million pounds in short gaming sessions.
