Ben Affleck Admits to Counting Cards in Las Vegas Casinos
Ben Affleck confirms the reports that he was caught counting cards in Las Vegas earlier this year!
“That is a true story. I mean, that took place. I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack,” the 42-year-old actor shared during an interview in Details magazine’s October 2014 issue.
He added, “I mean, the fact that being good at the game is against the rules at the casinos should tell you something about casinos.”
“I had always liked blackjack. I don’t play any other games of chance. I don’t bet on football games, and I don’t gamble at all, really, outside of that,” Ben said. “But I knew with blackjack that there’s a way you can improve your odds. And so I started trying to learn. And then I just got to a point in my life where I’m like, ‘If I’m going to do something, I’m going to try and do it really well.’”
