Celebrities Kicked out of Casinos

More often than not, when a celebrity walks into a facility they will immediately get VIP treatment, attention, and maybe even be allowed to bend or break a few rules. However, casinos are more strict and will tolerate only so much. During our "Who wants to win Freeplay/Onboard Credit" game (played similar to Who wants to be a Millionaire),  the URComped team answers trivia questions about Celebrities kicked out of casinos. To join in on the fun, tune into our Facebook LIVE on Thursdays at 4:35 pm CST and put your answers in the comments for your chance to win Freeplay or onboard credit.

1. Former NBA player banned from multiple casinos

Allen Iverson has been kicked out and banned from multiple casinos from Atlantic City to Detroit for lack of proper gambling etiquette. “He is a bad loser, and he loses a lot,” says one report. 

2. Ben Affleck's Secret Skill

Ben Affleck, who once made over $1 million during two Vegas blackjack outings, was asked to leave the table when management noticed his profound counting abilities.

3. Underage Boy Band

One Direction once stayed at the Palms in Las Vegas. One Direction is from the UK, where the legal casino gambling age is 18. That could be the reason they didn’t care how Las Vegas’ legal gambling age is 21. Palms Management eventually kicked them out for underage gambling and drinking.

4. Banned from her Own Family’s Casino

In 2006, Paris Hilton had been playing poker at the family’s Las Vegas Hilton casino. She was eventually banned from her own casino on Conrad, her grandfather's, orders. He didn’t like that she was blowing a fortune on poker. One time, the socialite bet and lost her £175,000 Bentley during a high stakes game.  Paris was also barred from the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore casinos due to drug-related arrests.

Encore Resort

Great rooms, small casino, attached to Wynn. Would stay there again. If you have a choice stay at Encore, much nicer rooms than Wynn.

Encore Resort

Everything was great. Exceptional customer service from all the staff. Stayed in the panoramic king suite the room is spacious. The only recommendation is I wish the bed was more plush, It was too firm for me. The bed was not very comfortable. Overall good experience!

This is one of my favorite hotels in Las Vegas. Beautiful decor and art, friendly staff and great nightclubs! The pools are inviting and gorgeous. You can't go wrong with the rooms in the Encore and their signature beds are the most comfortable!

Encore Resort

High-class resort hotel with all the amenities and services you'd expect. Really comfortable, clean and safe environment. My friend lost his wallet and security was quick to find and notify him. I don't think many other places in Las Vegas you'd be this lucky! A small gripe I have are the outside windows needing a clean. I've been many times here and they always seem a little dirty but not enough to complain about.

Encore Resort

This was my first time staying at Encore and I couldn't have been happier. The rooms are large and have a nice bedroom and living room areas separated by a TV that swivels. The bathroom is large and there is plenty of space for two people to maneuver freely. There are a separate shower and bathtub and both are well appointed. There is a safe and ironing board in the closet. I really enjoyed that the whole room could be controlled right from the bedside panel. The rooms are smart rooms and you little don't have to get out of bed to operate anything. The pools are nice, but you will most likely have to get out there early or reserve a shaded or cabana spot (which comes at a high price). There is also the beach club which is the party pool and cost money just to get into. Overall, I really enjoyed the hotel. The restaurants were good and the service was great. It is Vegas, so expect to pay those prices when doing anything.
