How about these options: (high roller can be specifically someone who bets a lot of money, or it can be in the general sense of someone who spends a lot of money)

Specific to betting:
  • apostón
  • gran apostador
General (spends a lot of money):
  • derrochón
  • empedernido
  • potentado
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!

I would use: "gran postor" (betting)
Please, don't hesitate to correct my English.
