Ben Affleck wasn’t counting on this.
Hard Rock Las Vegas officials aren’t bluffing as they have banned the forthcoming “Batman” star for life from playing blackjack at the casino after he was caught counting cards, a source close to Affleck told the Daily News.
“You are too good, ” a security guard told the Oscar-winning star Monday night at the casino’s high-rollers’ blackjack table, the source said.
Translation: no more blackjack for Affleck. However, he’s welcome to try his hand at other games at the Hard Rock.
Affleck and actress wife Jennifer Garner were in Sin City for a romantic getaway before Affleck starts filming his “Batman” reboot in Los Angeles and Detroit.
Casino management ordered a car to take the Hollywood hunk, 41, and Garner, 42, back to their hotel, the source added.
