Ben Affleck learned that even if you are an A+ list mostly movie actor that you will get banned if you win enough money from casinos counting cards in blackjack. Counting cards is not illegal. Casinos just tell a player they are too good and ban them from ever playing again in that casino. You will probably also get banned from other casinos. Ben Affleck has been banned after winning too much money playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas. Most of us would have been thrown out. Ben and Jen were given a car ride back to their place. If he had a run at a game that had better casino odds they would have welcomed him back, but because he was playing blackjack, he was banned. I'm sure there will be some casino in Vegas who will take the chance and garner the publicity and let him play there.
