Ben Affleck has a “dangerous obsession” with gambling and has been losing thousands of dollars while working on his new movie — despite promising Jennifer Garner he’d stop, claims OK! magazine.

According to the tabloid, the star has been hanging out at casinos near Detroit, where he’s filming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, even though he told his wife he’d quit the habit after being booted from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for counting cards earlier this spring.

A so-called “insider” tells OK!, “Since moving to Detroit, Ben has come into the casino almost daily to gamble.”

And it’s allegedly causing problems.

“Jen is reaching her limit with Ben’s bad behavior, even canceling a family vacation in the wake of his actions,” says the magazine.

The tab’s source alleges, “The marriage is hanging by a thread. Jen is worried he’ll lose their fortune. It’s a never-ending roller coaster with him — and she just wants to get off.”

This supposed marriage crisis was lame and wrong when Star did it a month ago.

But this is OK!, which ran a bogus “Jen & Ben Marriage In Crisis” cover story back in 2013 and is apparently still doing whatever it can to justify it.

Unfortunately for the magazine, the couple is doing fine.

Reps for Affleck deny that he has a serious gambling problem.
