  • This is actually a good news. As sharpe said, this is very good deal for casinos. On this cruises there are many people and all of them are with "full pockets". I always wanted to go on some cruise and now when I've read this article I want that more :P But to happen this for me I must hit some BIG Jackpot :D
  • This is an interesting idea I think can be a very profitable for Carnival's Mobile Casino because what else you need as a casino? Many passengers at one place with a lot of spare time and many of them whit a full pockets. Hope to be a successful idea not only for the casino but for their customers too.
  • Yeah, the bad thing, by my experience, for cruise ship casinos the payouts are teribly low, as the main focus from the casino is to make more money than on land :D But, maybe this time it's going on the different type :D
  • Interesting, though I can't help but wonder if the games offered will be modified for this particular setting - afterall anybody that has ever been on a cruise ship and played on the slots and table games on board knows that the RTP is usually shockingly bad, even the Blackjack tends to have rules that will make any seasoned players eyes water .... if its above board and all though, this would be a great alternative to the usual ripoff casino offerings.
