Christina Ricci: I'm 'Obsessed' with Gambling

Speed Racer's new Trixie says she gets plenty of thrills at the track – with only a 1-horsepower engine.

"I've learned to love gambling," Christina Ricci told PEOPLE at the grand opening party for the Palazzo Las Vegas. "I was in Australia for a few months and gambling is like a national pastime there, so I learned to love betting on horses, and now I even put in a few football bets and I'm kind of obsessed and into it. Gambling is pretty good."

Thursday night, blackjack was her game of choice. When she wasn't sitting on her boyfriend's lap, Ricci was doubling down and splitting aces with Angie Harmon, her hubby Jason Seyhorn and Jerry O' Connell.

Ricci, 27, seemed to find a way to win at Palazzo's blackjack tables. Horse racing was another matter.

"I have no strategy (with horses) and I never pick winners," she says. "But it's still fun."
