Despite reports the actor is now banned from the hotel entirely, a source tells Us Weekly the actor was banned only from playing blackjack, but allowed to play other games. A rep for Hard Rock adds to Us: "Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time."

"Security said, 'You are too good at the game,'" the source says, adding: "The hotel was really nice about it and told him he could play other games. They ended up getting him and Jennifer a car back to their hotel too"

A rep for Affleck had no comment.
