Default Casino on the Paradise

We're first-timers who will be sailing on the Paradise April 27th. Can anyone tell me what the casino is like? Or even casinos on ships in general. Same as on land? Worse odds, or the same as Vegas? Thanks!

Carnival's casinos are generally better than other cruise ships. The slots play similar to the ones on the Vegas strip. I know someone who has been extremely lucky on the Paradise in the past. In March, he won over $2600.00. Usually the dollar slots are the better payoff, but according to this person since the drydock refit of the casino, the Quarter and $5.00 slots seem to payoff better. I can't wait to see what a non-smoking casino is like.

I hope that's true about the quarter slots. My honey likes doing that and he is just itching to get on board. I like bingo and I have heard there are some pretty good prizes. Here's to Irish Luck!! Denise

The non-smoking casino is great. This was the first cruise that we actually went into the casino because we were able to breath inside. No luck here but our friends won about $100 on the wheel of fortune game.

We just got back in Feb, the casino is pretty big. Not alot of people in there most of the time, maybe because its a non smoking ship. We won some money on the poker machines, slot machines ate our money!! Good luck and have fun.

My husband spent a lot of time in the Casino and he played with the ships money the entire week. He enjoyed himself in there. I went a couple of nights and played the slots (no luck though). There were always a lot of people, but he never had trouble getting on a table or at a machine.
You are going to love the ship. It was our first cruise also and we cannot wait to do it again. I wish they had more nonsmoking ships.

HI Folks, My DH and I are 5 time Paradise cruisers and we love the non-smoking casino. We have had a lot of luck and also made donations to the cause. Regardles, the experience is great. Whatever y'all do, let Carnival know that you like the non-smoking ship and if you wish, that you would like to to other ships non-smoking.!!

Hi,

I sailed with my finacee on Fancination 4/15/02 and played Treasure Wheel (.25 machine) and hit Triple Wild, Triple Wild, Triple Wild WHEEL...This piad 4000 quarters times the Multiplyer wheel, which landed on 4, for 16,000 quarters ($4000.00). What an awesome hit...until I found out the issue WG-9 and you are requuired to pay taxes regardless of being in international waters! Additionally, they would NOT issue me a check for the amount won, they would only pay cash, which I was able to deposit in the Ships Safe deposit box at no charge.
Any questions, contact me at joeo40@aol.com. Our next cruise in 12/22 on the Imagination along with our 3 children.

Denise,

I too love Bingo, but seldom win. Finally hit for $600 on our last Paradise cruise in February, 2003. The guy next to me almost bought my ticket, but passed on it at the last minute, so I had to buy him a drink to console him. Here's some luck that you'll win the Bingo for a free cruise when you sail!

Happy cruising!

Judy

We played some slots, they ate our money. We won about $250 on the video poker. It seemed to be the thing to play for us. The casino on the Paradise is really nice with no smoke and all!
