It sounds like the set up to a joke: why did Ben Affleck get banned from the Hard Rock Casino? But it’s not and here’s the answer: for counting cards. How do you like them apples?
From Hollywood Life:
A new report claims that on April 29, the Oscar winner was accused of counting cards at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and subsequently banned.
Here’s how it went down. Ben was busy playing an intense round of blackjack when security guards suddenly approached the actor and accused him of card counting, according to Radar Online. So shocking, right?
Counting cards is NOT illegal in Vegas, but it is totally frowned upon. The offense usually results in the gambler being kicked out of a casino, but Ben was punished way harder than that — he was BANNED for life by the Hard Rock!
It goes on to say that even though he was banned for life, he totally didn’t let it ruin his day. Awww! How nice.
What do you think: should he have gotten kicked out and banned for life?
