Default Video Poker and other casino questions

Got a question.
Video poker bars (you know the bars that have the video poker in the bartops), does the Conquest class of ships (specifically the Liberty) have any of these?
My first and only cruise was on the Inspiration last October and I don't recall seeing any on that boat. They did have video poker in the casino, but not on any bar tops.
Also, is video blackjack and the big 6 wheel available? I know they have them in Vegas but wasn't sure about the boat casinos.
I know the casino on this boat is a lot bigger than the Inspirations (or so I would hope)
I also plan on getting the Carnival players club card just because I can convert any points to Club Grazie points when I go to Vegas in October.

Drinking and playing video poker (or video blackjack or whatever) is just a hobby of mine......

I think they keep all the gaming in the casinos to keep kids away from it, from my understanding. Also, all the pictures I have seen on various sites of the bar areas do not show any such devices. Also, it seems to me that with as many people as you could have at a bar on a cruise, it could be largely impractical outside the casinos(which are open day and night anyway).

The above poster pretty much hit the nail on the head... but the real reason is there is no "bar" inside the casino and no gambling machines outside the casino.... Either you have to order a drink from one of the "girls" OR go outside the casino to get a drink.

I personally do not drink while gambling. If you drink while gambling, you are more likely to make errors, so I make sure I seperate the two.

Op didn't ask what you "personally" did... and I doubt she cares.
