BEN AFFLECK has been reportedly banned from Las Vegas casino’s table after being caught counting cards.
Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner were in Vegas on a romantic getaway when the future Batman star hit the high stakes tables at the Hard Rock Café Las Vegas.
Multiple reports say Affleck was caught counting cards.
While not illegal, it is frowned upon by most casinos – especially when the object of the game is to get any combination of 21.
By the laws of mathematical probabilities, there are only so many variables to the winning combination.
And the odds are usually in the house’s favor.
But by keeping track of the cards, the probability factor of the card gambit is to know what’s next and when to bet heavily or hold fast.
Casino management reportedly ordered a limo to take the couple back to their hotel after the game was halted and Affleck warned he was “too good”.
In 2001, Affleck raked in $800,000 playing blackjack at the Hard Rock in Vegas and was said to have tipped over $150K to dealers in waitresses.
Ironically, he recently stared in a film “Runner Runner” about online poker cheating.
