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.

Shrimp ****tail becomes Shrimp ****tail because of cheap computers that don't know the difference between ****tail and ****sucker.

When you are playing a game of any kind, you are entitled to use your brain in whatever method you can as a strategy to win the game. Boycott Hard Rock Casino. They have no right to throw people out for winning, or trying to win, if they are not doing anything illegal. It is not illegal to count cards, and it is not even foolproof, since several decks of cards are mixed together in the deal. Hard Rock Casino does not play fair.

Casinos have made more money off counters than they have lost. However, a good counter/player... or better yet... a team of counters and big players can negatively affect a casino in a matter of hours if left unchecked. Casinos cannot afford to lose for long... that is why they have table limits. No limits means a high roller on a good run can put a casino out of business.... and casinos know that. Kerry Packer hit the MGM for 25 million in one session one time. How many casinos would be out of business is they lost 25 million?

Hey tmz let Ben know when he comes to the real D (Detroit) he can play at one of the casinos here and not worry about getting caught counting cards, unless he uses his fingers.
