Ben Affleck Booted From Hard Rock For Counting Cards

I bet I'll spot him here in the Detroit casinos soon as he'll be here all summer filming Batman.

I winder how much his press agent paid security to 86 him. Remember in today's world, it's only bad publicity if they spell your name wrong.

lol -- security arranged for a car service to take him back to his hotel. That is a pretty polite back-off.

Lol! I missed that part the first time I read the article. God forbid if they piss off a celeb.

Counting cards isn't technically illegal, but it can get you kicked out of a casino



I hate this typical, misinformed sentence. They say it's not "technically illegal," implying there is something immoral about it. There are a lot of things that aren't "technically illegal" -- like walking down the street.

Ben should come to Atlantic City, where a more enlightened judicial system has ruled that casinos can't discriminate on the basis of having a brain.

Heck, getting him off the premises and away from cameras or microphones where the background shows the Hard Rock is what they would want. Let him call the Papparazi from his hotel, not from their casino. They ain't fools.

Was it a stunt? I doubt it. I think they just wanted to bounce him for winning.

He was put in OSN about a week before this. Hardrock is a heavy OSN property.

Affleck should file a lawsuit. He's certainly got the money and the fame to have a chance at winning. Imagine if in a few years, advantage play is protected by the Nevada Supreme Court, all because of this incident.
