It’s no secret that professional athletes all share certain personality traits. Some of which come in handy when climbing their way to the top. Confidence, competitiveness, aggressiveness, as well as thrill-seeking, are just a few of the characteristics found in major sports stars. These traits are the reason why so many athletes are attracted to gambling. Recreational activities like betting offer the same high-charged atmosphere as there is on the court, field, or track.
In fact, gambling happens to be one such activity. If you consider yourself something of a sports fan, you’re probably familiar with the high-profile stars who enjoy casinos. It’s well known that Michael Jordan often engages in bombastic gambling escapades. While Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather is often bragging about his regular wins on casino games, and even college sports bets.
Just like the US, Canada has both a thriving casino and sports industry. So it should be no surprise that our Canadian sports heroes like to enjoy both.
