Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest footballer to have ever lived. On the pitch, he works hard. Off the pitch, he trains even harder. This leads to his millions of fans often wondering about what he does to unwind and relax. After all, surely he isn’t training 24 hours a day, right? Despite how much time and effort CR7 puts in, he does like to have downtime away from football. Primarily, he does this by spending time with his girlfriend Georgina Rodríguez. Then, when he's alone or with friends, Ronaldo likes to gamble occasionally. Yep, that’s right: Ronaldo loves to play games and gamble. For him, it’s harmless fun and a way to blow off some steam after training all week.

How good is Ronaldo at gambling?
Ronaldo is the best at everything he puts his mind to, so naturally, he's pretty good at gambling. However, Ronaldo doesn't bet on football games. This is something that only the fans are meant to do. If you want to bet on the 2022 World Cup – which Ronaldo is taking part in for Portugal – you can do so by checking out the FIFA world cup bracket.
Instead of betting on football games, Ronaldo prefers to play casino classics.
Ronaldo's favourite casino game is rumoured to be poker. Ronaldo is said to be highly skilled at poker and has played it in a variety of countries, from his native Portugal to Spain during his Real Madrid days. If you head over to Google, there are numerous photos of Ronaldo playing poker in tournaments and with friends. Not to mention, he's also posted photos of himself practicing poker at home on his Instagram over recent years.
Clearly, this is a casino game that Ronaldo loves and excels at. It makes perfect sense, as poker is similar to football: they both require strategic thinking, patience, and a strong mindset.
The Spanish team Real Madrid was known for their love of occasional gambling. When visiting land-based casinos, the team would place bets on the roulette table for some light-hearted fun – and Ronaldo was a big part of this.
Roulette is the perfect team-building game, so it's hardly surprising that Real Madrid loved it so much.
Lastly, it's also rumoured that Ronaldo enjoys playing online slots on his smartphone, particularly during long journeys around the world. The internet is now host to hundreds of football-themed slots games, so it's understandable that Ronaldo has taken a liking to them.
If you want to be like Ronaldo, you need to train hard at whatever you do. In addition to this, you also need to try out your gambling skills, as this is something that Ronaldo does to unwind, free his mind, and have some fun with his friends. Anyone above the legal gambling age can do this, so providing you fit this bracket, you should give it a go. With the 2022 World Cup fast approaching, there's never been a better time for this.
