Ben Affleck banned from blackjack at Vegas hotel for card counting

‘(Counting cards is) a gambling strategy that often refers to obtaining a sufficient count on the number, distribution and high-card location of cards in order to optimize the winning of tricks. It’s not technically illegal, but heavily frowned upon by casinos.’


I don’t even participate in coin tosses or games of RockPaperScissors, but it seems to me that Affleck was doing nothing except, you know, pay attention to the game.

‘Affleck was subsequently banned for life from playing blackjack at the venue.

“Ben was banned from playing blackjack not booted from the casino because as the security said ‘you are too good at the game,” a source told FOX411.’


So hasn’t the casino just admitted that it considers most of its clients crappy gamblers and that you’re only welcome if you play to lose?
