The 'Argo' actor has been banned from blackjack table at Hard Rock Las Vegas after security caught him counting cards.

's high skill in playing cards didn't benefit him during a recent visit to Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. The actor has reportedly been banned for life from playing blackjack at the casino after security caught him counting cards.

A security guard approached him at a high rollers' table and told him that he had been deemed an "advantaged player," which is no good for the casino. "You are too good at the game," the security reportedly told him.

The casino management even arranged a car to take him and his wife back to their hotel. He was told that he could play other games and they were still treated like a VIP. "The hotel was really nice to him," a source claimed.

The couple was in Sin City earlier this week for a romantic getaway before the 42-year-old hunk starts shooting the "" sequel, where he plays Batman, in Los Angeles and Detroit.

Back in 2001, Affleck won $800,000 playing blackjack at the Hard Rock. Counting cards itself isn't an illegal strategy, but often gets a gambler kicked out of a casino if discovered.
