Affleck was on a short break in the city with his wife Jennifer Garner when he was stopped earlier this week by security guards at the Hard Rock Casino.

They told him he had to stop playing blackjack because "you are too good," the source said.

He was told he could play other games at the casino.

Celebrity news website TMZ reported Affleck had been banned for life from the casino for counting cards, a legal gambling strategy of using probability to predict the next hand.
