Batman has had his Ocean’s Eleven moment.
Ben Affleck has been banned for life from the blackjack tables at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Affleck was in Sin City with wife Jennifer Garner Tuesday when security approached him on suspicion of counting cards. A source says the guard came up to Affleck for being “too good at the game.”
The hotel allowed Affleck to play other games in the casino and even sent a car for the couple.

“The hotel was very nice to them,” said the source.
Although counting cards is not illegal, it is looked down upon by Vegas casinos.
This is not the first time Affleck has played the card shark in real life. In 2001 at the same Hard Rock hotel, Affleck reportedly won $800,000 at the blackjack tables.
