Default Casinos

I have read the good news about bars being open almost if not all the time, but what about Casinos? I have seen things about them only being open when you are in "international waters". We are taking a cruise to Canada/New England (eek only 87 days to go!)....Any idea when the casinos will be open or I guess the question really is when they might be closed?

Thanks,
Carey

By law they have to be in international waters, which is either 20 or 21 miles off the coast. Believe me, they will open the casino as soon as they can and as much as they can. Big money maker and they don't want to miss out.

We were always told they only have to be 3 miles off the coast to open, no matter what waters they maybe.

Hmm...so once we get out the certain distance, they will open and then they will close everytime we near a port and then open again once we are out far enough again?
