Blackjack is one of the most popular and best loved games played around the world today. It's a relatively easy game to learn and play, with the aim of the game being to hit 21 or to get as close to that number as possible. With blackjack therefore being an exciting game which everyone can get involved in, it's picked up somewhat of a celebrity following over the years, with many stars becoming big fans of the game.
Sean Combs, who also goes by the names of Diddy and Puff Daddy, amongst others, is one of the most recognisable figures from the music industry today. After embarking on a successful career in the industry, Diddy turned producer and then entrepreneur, living the high life along the way. So, it will come as no surprise that Diddy is a man who likes to gamble, with blackjack believed to be his game of choice. Diddy notoriously requested he had a blackjack table provided for him and friends back stage at the MTV Awards one time, just so he could get some extra practice in.
Don Johnson is more known for playing the role of Miami Vice's Sonny Crocket during the show's heyday in the 1980s than anything else. While Johnson has done other work since, it's Miami Vice he will be fondly remembered and most famous for, but you could say he gained a bit of attention away from the acting circuit. Johnson is believed to have won a hell of a lot of money playing blackjack, with some suggesting he's raked in excess of $15 million at Tropicana in Atlantic City. That is some haul and shows that not only is Johnson a superb actor, but a fantastic blackjack player too.
Mike Tyson will go down as one of the all-time greats where boxing is concerned, having enjoyed a successful career as one of the finest heavyweights ever to live. Since his boxing career ended, Tyson has been constantly involved with other projects and hobbies to keep himself occupied, and this saw him even having a casino game created which was based on himself. There's also a suggestion that Iron Mike is a fan of blackjack too, with these claims strengthened further when he appeared in an advertisement for Turning Stone Resort Casino. He appeared at the blackjack table in the ad and it's reported he's a fan of the game too.
Allen Iverson is one of NBA's biggest ever stars and he's always been well known when it comes to frequenting casinos around America.

That being said, Iverson is believed to be a big fan of blackjack and can regularly be seen playing the game, in venues he isn't barred from of course.
