Poker-friendly actor, award-winning director and star of the upcoming mega-movie “Batman vs. Superman”, Ben Affleck was, reportedly, banned for life from playing at the blackjack tables at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Casino last night.
CNN reports that a “source close to Affleck” said that Affleck was not booted from the casino but rather was told to stand down from the blackjack tables as security told him “You are too good at the game.”
TMZ.com reports that Affleck was indeed banned for being deemed an “advantage player” when security spotted Ben counting cards at the high roller table. Of course, while counting cards is not illegal, it’s not something the casinos look favorably upon and, if caught, will get you the same treatment Affleck received.
Apparently Affleck was taking a romantic trip to sin city with his movie star wife, Jennifer Garner, for a little R&R before the internet, once again, turns on him for taking the role of Batman.
