Ben Affleck Caught Counting Cards at Hard Rock Casino Las Vegas

Ben Affleck Caught Counting Cards at Hard Rock Casino Las Vegas Seems even Ben Affleck can’t get away with counting cards at the Blackjack table. The actor was in Las Vegas for a getaway with his wife Jennifer Garner before starting the filming of his latest role in Batman.

Affleck pulled up a chair at the Blackjack table and was on a winning streak at the Hard Rock Las Vegas Casino. The eye in the sky was watching him for than his stardom status that’s for sure when a security guard came up to him and said: “You are too good” in last Monday’s High Roller room.

Security was however polite and as the immediately ordered a car to pick him and his wife up and bring them back to their hotel.

The superstar isn’t entirely banned from coming back, he just got a slap on the wrist and is allowed to try his luck at another game.

He didn’t commit any type of crime because technically counting cards in not considered illegal but for Casinos it’s a big no-no and strictly not allowed.

Back in 2001 Affleck won a whopping $800,000 at the Hard Rock Casino Vegas Blackjack table but according to witnesses he was extremely generous tipping dealers and servers to a tune of $150,000.

I wonder what would happen to the more common folk like you and I if caught counting cards at a Sin City Casino. Reckon we would get a car to pick us up and deliver us personally to our hotel and be allowed to return and try our luck at another game of chance?

If I was a betting typing of person and who isn’t, I would place the odds of getting the same type of treatment at 99 – 1 odds.
  • It is not illegal that is for sure. It is the casinos that make up their own rules. That in my opinion should be regulated. It's just not card readers they can kick out is anyone on a good roll and winning big bucks.
  • In my opinion this is not illegal and can be done easily by each and one of us, too bad some of the casinos don't share the same opinion, what they do share is maximum profits with low pay-outs.Npt correct that they have banned him playing the game.
  • wondering what would happen to the more folks like you and me if caught counting cards at a in a Las Vegas Casino? We would get a car to pick us up and deliver us personally to our hotel and be allowed to return and try our luck at another game of chance? No I don't think so. It's more like pushed and handled like a piece of garbage. Not to mention they probably take your winnings and you are never allowed back in again. And this kind of treatment would be no prob even if counting cards is not illegal.
  • i dunno anything abt card counting so hw do they determine that u are doin that? dun they have a few decks of cards to shuffle?
  • HAHA, Go BEN! I used to live next to a Gambler, That was his actual Job! he was hardly ever at home, nice two story house etc.. He invited me over one night and explained in a basic sense that card counting goes something like this.. (he did say they go further into it ) but for basic understanding. At the start of a NEW Game, Right After the cards are shuffled, You start counting High cards (Say 8 to ACE as High Cards with a Value of "+1" (PLUS ONE) and Low Cards (Say 2 Through to 6 or 7 as Low Cards with a Value of "-1" (MINUS ONE). There are more specific categories, but for illustration, assume it as above for now :). For each card that gets dealt. So say there are a lot of small cards passing by, and a largely negative number is present and X amount of cards into the pack should give you the balance of how many low cards and high cards are left in the pack, . so you either BET more or Bet less according to that Negative/positive number, based on the Potential you have to Win, and the dealer to possibly lose. He did mention two or three people are more ideal as one comes in , plays low and consistent, has a sign stretch or what ever, and another goes in when the table if high and WINS Large! :)
  • I wish whoever wrote this article would learn how to properly word a sentence. How embarrassing-almost as bad as getting caught for counting cards.
  • If you're going to gamble be prepared to lose money.. If you dont want to lose then dont gamble lol. Gambling is fun :D if you know how to handle it.
  • I believe that casinos rob people for years so its time people rob them too ....... So whats the problem ...... Money int just make for 1 person its enoughft that every body can be millionairs too ........
  • They don't want people to winn that is the simeple answer and the problem is that is not law that punish the casinos that throw the people that use that strategy.Not all people will use it so what it is the problem?
  • Counting cards is not cheating: it is simply a strategy that guides a player on the best decision to make based on keeping track of the cards that have been dealt and those remaining in the deck. Personally, I prefer games like blackjack that incorporate skill as well as luck in deciding results, but casinos clearly prefer completely clueless customers.
