Before filming the new ‘Batman,’ Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck got away for a weekend in Las Vegas. However, reports surfaced that he got kicked out of the Hardrock Casino in Las Vegas, but HollywoodLife.com has the truth behind his weekend getaway!
On April 29, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were doing some gambling at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and were asked to leave the blackjack table! Some outlets were also saying that the couple also got banned for life from returning — but that’s not the truth, HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned.
Ben Affleck Banned From Casino? — Not Exactly
“Ben got banned from playing blackjack not the casino,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com. “They allowed him to play other games if he wanted. The security said we have to stop you because ‘you are to good.'”
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise to us — he’s known for being a great blackjack player. He once won $800,000 in a single game in 2001.
Hard Rock Invites Ben Affleck Back ‘Anytime’
“The hotel was really nice,” the source added. “They told him he could play other games and ended up getting him and Jennifer a car back to their hotel.”
Additionally, the Hard Rock Casino released a statement saying that he’s invited back at anytime. Plus, if he had been counting cards at the casino, he wouldn’t have been breaking any laws since it is legal in Vegas.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers — do you think Ben should have been banned?
