Las Vegas casino welcomes Ben Affleck with open arms after Hard Rock fiasco

By Daniel S Levine,

The Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino may have said that Ben Affleck hasn’t actually been banned from the casino, but the suggestion that he was is still dominating social media. Now, the owner of another casino is welcoming the Argo director with open arms, despite allegations that he counted cards in a Blackjack game.

There were reports over the weekend that Affleck was “too good” at Blackjack and was escorted out of the casino by security. Affleck is actually still allowed to go to the casino, but he still can’t play Blackjack.

“Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time,” a hotel spokeswoman told The Las Vegas Review Journal, as previously reported.

Still, if Affleck is nervous that security might not want to see him there again, he has another option. D Casino Hotel and Golden Gate Hotel owner Derek Stevens told TMZ that that the actor is welcome to come to his casinos.

“The D Las Vegas is not afraid of Ben Affleck winning a few hands in a row,” Stevens told the site. “Ben can come play blackjack and not worry about security walking him out!”

Affleck is currently working on Superman vs. Batman, in which he will play Batman/Bruce Wayne. He recently appeared in Runner Runner, which could have used the Blackjack scandal as a promotional stunt. Unfortunately, the film came out in October and flopped.
