Ben Affleck

Play Blackjack Downtown ...

You Can Count on Us!

Ben Affleck
can keep doubling down and splitting Aces in Sin City ... because he just got offered a blackjack safe haven where he won't be 86'd for card counting.

Derek Stevens owns The D Casino Hotel and Golden Gate Hotel in downtown Vegas -- and he wants Ben to bring his chips from the strip without worrying about getting swooped up by security.

TMZ broke the story -- Ben was escorted out of the Hard Rock Casino last week after security labeled him an "advantage player," believing he was counting cards in blackjack.

Stevens tells us, "The D Las Vegas is not afraid of Ben Affleck winning a few hands in a row," adding, "Ben can come play blackjack and not worry about security walking him out!"

Heading off the strip doesn't mean you lose whale status -- The D can accommodate high rollers up to $10K per hand.

Plus Golden Gate has the best $2.99 shrimp cocktail in town.  It used to be $1.99 -- damn inflation.

Sounds like a sweet deal for Ben to stay sharp and the casino to attract more whales - win/win.

The shrimp ****tail at Golden Gate used to be 99 cents a few years ago! Only us regular white-trashies are in the know when it comes to Downtown Vegas facts, haha.

Vegas wonders why business is down. You used to get free drinks no problem now you got to beg for them but they are quick with the $10 drinks. Screw the strip, Long live Fremont street

Good, let him hang out at that dump and eat that cheap looking shrimp ****tail. You TMZ staffers must not get out much. That is not a good looking shrimp ****tail.

Old downtown Vegas is so much more fun than the stuck up Vegas strip.


Cheaper hookers too!

S    

and thats the difference between individually owned businesses and big corporations. Now Ben should go and gamble there and bring all his high rolling buddies in a big F U to the Corporate Casino Strip!!

Steve Wynn wouldn't pay TMZ for this post because Steve Wynn doesn't need TMZ.
