Jennifer Lopez’s mom gets lucky in Ben Affleck’s new gambling commercial

No, she ain’t your momma. That distinction goes to Jennifer Lopez.

Guadalupe “Lupe” Rodríguez is getting in on the action between her superstar daughter and Oscar-winning beau Ben Affleck.

The 75-year-old makes a cameo WynnBET’s new sports gambling app commercial, directed by Affleck, 49.

Around the one-minute mark of the advertisement, Rodríguez passionately risks all her coins on the slot machine hoping for a big Wynn win while Affleck walks by.

“Come on, Lupe!” she exclaims while expertly playing two machines at once. “You can do this, girl, just like the slots in St. Louis!”

The commercial was filmed back in June when the two were spotted at the Wynn resort in Sin City. Rodríguez is no stranger to casino culture: The golden girl, described as a “huge gambler” by J.Lo, once won $2.4 million at an Atlantic City casino.

“Guadalupe loves Ben and is happy that he is back in Jennifer’s life,” a source close to the actor told E! News at the time. “They enjoy gambling together and have done it in the past. Ben had the opportunity to work in Vegas this week and she came out.”

While Rodríguez is involved in the project, Lopez, 51, was not spotted on set.

The commercial also features cameos from NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal and comedian Melvin Gregg.
