Is Ben Affleck just too good of a Blackjack player? It seems so, as a source close to the situation says that the high roller was ultimately asked to stop playing blackjack at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
According to an insider, Affleck was in Las Vegas spending some romantic time with wife Jennifer Garner before he starts shooting the Batman-Superman movie in Detroit.
He was not booted from the casino, but security did tell him, “You are too good at the game,” the source tells E! News.
The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas were apparently keeping a close eye on the star during his recent trip to Sin City, since it was widely reported back in 2001, that he won $800,000 playing blackjack at the Hard Rock, and was caught counting cards, which was reported by TMZ.
Though he was not allowed to touch the blackjack table, Affleck and his wife continued to be treated like VIP, and was told that he could play other games. After a night in the casino, the hotel arranged for a car to take Affleck and Garner back to their hotel.
