The staff at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas was clearly keeping a very close eye on Affleck during his recent trip to Las Vegas leading to his ultimately being asked to stop playing blackjack. He was in Las Vegas on a couple's trip with his wife Jennifer Garner for a quick romantic getaway prior to beginning shooting the Batman-Superman movie in Detroit. He was not thrown out of the casino, but security told him that he's too good at the game.

Back in 2001 when he was single it was reported Affleck won $800,000 playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. During his recent visit to Las Vegas Affleck was caught counting cards. Although this is not illegal in the state of Nevada it is highly frowned upon by casinos and is likely to get a gambler thrown out if discovered. The hotel nevertheless continued to treat Affleck like a VIP even after he was cut off from playing blackjack.

Affleck confirmed that he was asked to leave the well known Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas recently reports Fox News. In fact he has been banned for life from playing blackjack at the casino. The security was nice to him and told him he could play other games instead. However, unfortunately for Affleck sources say an all-points bulletin has been issued to Las Vegas’ most prominent casinos accusing Affleck of card counting. Well, it appears Affleck is lucky he's a big money maker in Hollywood since his income from blackjack appears finished, at least in Las Vegas.
