Ben Affleck Counts Cards in Las Vegas Banned from Casino

Oscar-winner Ben Affleck may be an A-lister, but even he can’t get away with being “too good” at blackjack.

The actor was banned from playing blackjack at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Casino after he was deemed “too good” at the game by security. Some reports said that Affleck allegedly was counting cards, a gambling method in which the player memorizes which type of cards have already been played and uses that knowledge to perfect his or her playing strategy. It is not illegal but can get a player banned.

Card counting is perfectly legal,” said Colin James of BlackjackApprenticeship.com. “You’re just using your brain. But the casinos don’t like it because they know if you play long enough you’ll take their money.”

The casino did not use the words “counting cards,” and the Hard Rock said that it is its policy “not to comment” on guests’ gaming play. Affleck was not banned from the entire casino, but was told he could no longer try his hand at blackjack, the source said. The Hard Rock hotel was “very nice” about the incident and Affleck was welcome to play other games,. However, Affleck and his wife, actress Jennifer Garner, decided to head back to their hotel for the night.

The Hard Rock issued a statement that read, in part, “Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time.” Affleck and Garner were enjoying a quick getaway before Affleck headed to Detroit to start filming on the film “Batman vs. Superman,” ABC News reports. Affleck, who reportedly has raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in blackjack winnings over the years, talked about his love of the game while promoting the 2013 film, “Runner Runner.”

“I like to go to casinos and play blackjack and poker,” he said, “although I don’t have enough recreational time these days.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
