The Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas says actor Ben Affleck is not banned from their casino.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports how Affleck is not banned from the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Abigail Miller, a spokesperson, states, "Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time."
TMZ reported a story sharing how Affleck had been banned from the casino after he was caught by security counting cards while playing a game of blackjack. Counting cards is a gambling strategy which calls for counting card values to lessen the betting risk. The strategy isn't illegal but it can get you kicked out of casinos. Affleck was reportedly kicked out by security who sent for a car service to come take him back to his hotel. Affleck is known to be a big gambler. Back in 2001, he apparently won 800,000 in blackjack winnings while at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas.
