What is the minimum dollar amount to play blackjack?

Do you get nickels or quarters or use your S&S card to play the slots?

I only want to plan to allot $50 for the casino (that is I am not willing to lose more than that).

So if I blow $25 on the slots, how many hands of blackjack will $25 get me?


There are penny, nickle, dime, quarter and dollar slots. My wife will take $20 and play penny slots for a couple of hours. Just be careful. You can bet up to 100 pennies at a time. You can also bet 5 at a time. The slots are almost all electronic where you can either use your S&S or get a paper "chit" from the machine and insert that into a slot machine. I'm not a slot player so I can't really explain in detail but you don't have to touch any money but I know using your S&S would make it easy for a undisciplined person to overspend.

I believe the minimum table on Carnival is $5. So you can play five hands of blackjack. Then again, if you win...

Take care,
