Charles Barkley appeared on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger”, and revealed that he has won $1 million four or five times before (in a single day). He says winning can be a gift, as well as a curse because it “gives you a great feeling”. The curse of gambling, however, is a lot of times you lose.

Sir Charles Barkley stated that he has lost a million dollars somewhere between “ten to twenty” times. If you do the math, that could range from $10-20 million dollars.

Barkley goes on to say he should have listened to his friends when he started winning and just left with his winnings. But instead, he kept playing, and sometimes this ended up costing him, BIG TIME.
