Mr. Wahlberg was playing at a casino in Macau, one of the more popular gambling destinations in the world. Macau is so popular that is it beginning to beat out the likes of Las Vegas & Atlantic City. Mark revealed this information while he was promoting his new movie “The Gambler” while on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. None the less this shocked the audience as this is a year’s wage for the majority of middle class Northern Americans, I suppose that is one of the perks of being a famous Hollywood Star.

Those wishing to see “The Gambler” can do so by attending their local movie theatre’s on Christmas Day, this film will more than likely not receive a large portion of money on its opening day but you can be ensured that it’ll become a successful film in the days coming afterwards its release.
