Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has reportedly been banned from playing blackjack at a casino in Las Vegas for allegedly counting cards.
Affleck, 41, was playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas earlier this week when the casino’s security team caught the actor on camera counting cards, reported E!Online.
A security guard approached him at a high rollers’ table and told him, “You are too good at the game.”
The hotel reportedly continued to treat the actor like a VIP even after he was cut off from blackjack. He was told that he could play other games and then they arranged for a car to take Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner back to their hotel.
The ‘Argo’ star was in Vegas on a couple’s trip with Garner as quick romantic getaway before he starts shooting the ‘Batman-Superman’ movie in Detroit.
Back in 2001, Affleck won USD 800,000 playing blackjack at the Hard Rock.
