Premier League WAG ‘loses £100k in one night gambling at same casino Rooney lost £500k’

Date Posted,May 20, 2017

A Premier League WAG allegedly blew £100,000 while gambling in the same casino that Wayne Rooney lost £500,000.

It has allegedly left an international superstar worried that his wife has a gambling problem.

According to The Sun on Sunday , the splurge occurred during a one night session on the roulette wheel at the Manchester 235 casino.

A source allegedly said: “He is sensible with his money and has earned millions throughout his career and done all the right things – bought a house, made investments and sorted out a nice pension.

“His wife enjoys the finer things in life and the trappings of wealth. But he was shocked to learn she had lost so much money in one go.

“He doesn’t mind her having a flutter, but he remains a working-class lad at heart and he wouldn’t dream of losing that kind of money gambling.”

Manchester United and England captain Rooney is said to have lost half a million pounds gambling at the same casino earlier this year.

The 31-year-old spent over £4,000 a minute during his visit to the venue in the early hours of the morning.

Onlookers claimed that Rooney entered the casino alone, and played roulette and blackjack and he knocked back a few beers.

One witness said: “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.

“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.

“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.

The spree comes after UK football has been rocked by a series of gambling scandals — including an 18-month ban for Burnley’s Joey Barton over betting on matches.
