Ben Affleck reveals truth about Card Counting Scandal
In a recent interview, actor Ben Affleck admitted that he has used the card counting strategy at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas last April. Even so, the future Batman claims that he does not consider he was cheating, but that he just got really good at blackjack. Operators who buy casino software might like to know that card counting is a strategy that helps determine whether the advantage is given to the dealer or the player, by keeping count of all high and low valued cards revealed to the player.
Affleck reportedly told Detail Magazine that he just took some time to learn playing blackjack and became a decent player. After that, the casinos would simply stop allowing him to play the game. Unfortunately for the actor/director, the Hard Rock Casino staff forbid him to play blackjack, but instead told him that he can play other games like roulette or Chinese poker. Companies who buy casino software might also like to find out that the casino staff told Affleck that he is welcome back any time.
The actor also explained that several casinos told him not to play blackjack there because they know he is counting cards, but instead said they would allow him to play roulette, have dinner or do something else he likes.
If companies who buy casino software might be wondering how Ben Affleck got so good at blackjack, the actor reveals it all. He said that he just practiced a lot and he really enjoys the game, and he does not even play any other games of chance. The actor admitted that he bets on football games, but that’s all. Even so, Affleck discovered that with blackjack, he has a chance of improving his odds. “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”, Affleck said.
