The Hard Rock Cafe in Vegas threw Ben out for (possibly) counting cards
Ben Affleck’s passion for gambling has been well-documented, as he is a skilled poker player who previously won the California state championship. He also enjoys blackjack but was perhaps getting a little TOO good at it if you ask Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
In 2014, it was reported that Affleck had been banned from playing blackjack at the casino because of card counting, a technique that isn’t technically illegal but is strongly frowned upon by casinos. “The fact that being good at the game is prohibited should tell you something about casinos,” Affleck added later when asked about it.
