i live within 25 miles of 3 casino boats. when i cruised on the carnival spirit last sept i was able to walk right through the casino and not even want to put my money in any of the machines and pull the handle.
i have plenty of oppotunity to do gamble all i want at home so it was more important for me too use the money for a tour or a souvenier. besides i might at well toss the money overboard as much luck as i have.
good luck to all of you who play.
