Ben Affleck was reportedly kicked out of the Hard Rock casino in Las Vegas and banned for life from playing blackjack there after allegedly being caught counting cards. The actor-director, a longtime card player, was at a high rollers’ blackjack table on Tuesday when he was swarmed by security, reports TMZ.

According to what casino sources told the outlet, the venue’s personnel spotted Affleck counting cards, a gambling strategy that led the Hard Rock to label Affleck an “advantaged player.” He was booted from the facility, with security even arranging a car service to transport him back to his accommodations. It looks like Affleck will have to find somewhere else to count cards.
