Yes, you can still use coins, and bills, in the slots. You can also "cash out" in coins without uploading to your card. The ships are only allowed to make casino transactions while they are in international waters. Once in territorial waters they must follow the regulations of that territory (and pay taxes on casino income). That's why you have to cash out the last night of the cruise and the casino is not open in most ports. The rule also applies to casino chips.

I would prefer they issue a different card for slot play since you run the risk of leaving your room key in the slot machine when you get up to leave.
