Default Another Casino question

Can anyone tell me if there is poker (not video poker) in the Casino on the Millennium. One more question for anyone who has sailed the Millennium, what kind of slot machines do they have? Do they have nickel machines (that actually take 45 nickles not A nickle. Never cruised but have spent plenty of time in casinos on land. Like to know what kind of games I'll be playing. Thanks

I don't think I've ever seen any cruise ship that has real hand-holding cards poker, -- except for some rumored games on Delta Queen, a boat that is not supposed to have gambling of any sort but was known for keeping the river boat tradition by holding some marathon poker games between passengers and sometimes even the crew.

For slots - I am pretty sure they have nickel machines, but why play 45 nickels, why not play 2 dollars instead?

I like to dally around casinos though I limit my losses. Unfortunately you aren't going to find casinos on ships that are comparable to Las Vegas in terms of odds on the slots (though are are pretty close to what you might find in Atlantic City). For example, video poker machines will pay "X" to 1 for

1 jacks or better
2 two pair
3 3 of a kind
4 straight
5 flush
6 full house

Where in Vegas you can find:

1
2
3
5
6
9

The live blackjack and craps tables are Vegas rules (probably your best bets). Video Blackjack you cannot double down or split.

Card player magazine has several trips per year in which they have poker rooms on the ship. Look up the card player web site for more information.
