Ben Affleck has been banned from playing blackjack at a Las Vegas casino after he was caught counting cards.
According to reports, the 41-year-old actor/director was playing at a high rollers’ table at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas when security guards stopped him from playing when he was suspected of counting cards. Ben Affleck was then reportedly banned for life from Hard Rock Casino.
Although card counting is not illegal, a casino can ban a player who uses this method of using probability to predict the next hand. A source who was there when it happened said the staff politely stopped Affleck from playing and told him: “you are too good at the game.”
Officials from Hard Rock reportedly stated that Affleck “uses perfect basic, but also takes insurance according to the count.”
Ben Affleck recently played an online gambling tycoon in the 2013 crime thriller “Runner Runner.” He was vacationing in Vegas with wife Jennifer Garner, before he embarks on a seven month filming of Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel.
