Ben Affleck Moves his Casino Action to Detroit

A while ago we reported that Ben Affleck had been banned from the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, allegedly for having counted cards while playing blackjack. It is well known that the casinos in Las Vegas work together and it might have been difficult for Affleck to find games to play in Las Vegas, so now the actor has moved his game to Detroit instead, sources reports.

Affleck has been seen frequently at the MotorCity Casino as well as the Greektown Casino in Detroit in the past weeks and has been playing blackjack in the high-roller room all by himself. When we say all by himself, we only mean that he is the only player at the table, as there is always security guards watching his game as he plays.

Affleck reportedly plays very high stakes in every single hand of blackjack and has also been winning a decent amount. The dealers are probably still quite happy having the star in the casino, as he is also said to tip quite a lot when he is on his winning streak.

It is probably only a matter of time before Affleck will be kicked out of the casinos in Detroit, if the allegations of him counting cards are in fact true. So far however, Affleck has been allowed to play in both casinos.
