I just had a long talk with a British gentleman(forgot his name) at Carnival's home office Casino dept. He told me that they are now tracking slot play on the Imagination. And that next week it will be in on the Fascination and then they will beputting in the system in on the West Coast ships and that it will be fleet wide in the next year. The purpose of this tracking system is to earn $$$ toward future cruises. Additionally in Carnivals future there is going to be a real marketing program geared toward the slot player similar to what land based hotels are offering their clients.As I am going on the Elation 26 Aug and as yet the system will not be operational in that venue he told me to have the casino manager "Al" track my play and rate me. He then should send the data to Miami. What have I got to loose I will be playing the machines anyway.
I played the slot on Imagination last year and didn't win a thin...The casino was not paying out...Every one in the casino was stun that noone had won big or small...I like RCCL I always win something there.
