Ben Affleck Banned from Las Vegas Casino Blackjack TablePublished May 7, 2014 by OCR Editor
Actor and director Ben Affleck was banned from a blackjack table in a Las Vegas casino on account of card counting.
Hollywood actor and director Ben Affleck has been banned from a blackjack table in a Las Vegas Casino. Affleck was playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, not far from the strip, when casino security approached him saying "You are too good at this game".
It seems that there was no ruckus, as the actor was just told he is barred from playing blackjack at the casino but is welcome to play any other game. The reason for the movie star's ban, according to casino security, was that Affleck was counting cards during the game. While card counting is not illegal, it is ground for being banned at various casinos.
An avid gambling fun, Affleck's name is known across Vegas as a high-roller who likes spending time at poker and blackjack tables and to wager on sports betting events. According to gossip sites, Affleck won $800,000 back in 2001 when he played three $20,000 hands at once.
The Hard Rock Casino and Hotel resort in Las Vegas is known as a celebrity hangout and a rep from the hotel made a statement on the subject, guaranteeing that Ben Affleck is not banned from the casino as a whole: "Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time" the rep said.
