Ben Affleck Banned for Card Counting in Las Vegas
The actor Ben Affleck has reportedly been banned from playing blackjack at a Las Vegas casino. Earlier this week Affleck was stopped by security guards at the Hard Rock Casino and was told “you are too good at the game.”
However, he hasn’t been banned from the casino, he has been told that he is welcome to stay and play other games. The casino released a statement after it was claimed that the actor had been banned for life. The statement said, “Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time”.
Affleck was reportedly caught counting cards, an act that is not illegal but highly disapproved of by casinos.
The actor was on holiday in Las Vegas with his wife Jennifer Garner before leaving to start filming on the Zack Snyder’s upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel” where he will play Batman opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman.
There has been no comment from the actor’s spokesperson but it is understood that he left on good terms with the casino.
