Default Enforce


Just curious, do the casino personnel enforce the 18 and over rule or can teens actually sneak in and play??

Actually on most of the cruise lines gambling age is 21. Though some do 18.

In either case, they are quite strict about it. You may be able to sneak a few coins in a slot machine if you're underage, but you wont be there for long.

Also, even if they do play, if an 18 wins a big jack pot where they have to come pay you (on money machines it's anything over 1000 coins), they must likely will not pay due to the player being underage. So, it really doesn't pay for someone underage to gamble, cuz if they do win big, they won't receive the money.

My 13 yo son hung around the door when I played slots (to give me *advise*) and once stepped in the casino. A crew member was on him FAST asking him to leave, although he did it pleasantly and with a big smile.

I was pleased with his quick and polite response to my son!

So, no, don't think about sneaking in....

I gambled on the Immagination at 17, and won 250 on the nickel slots. they had to come over (jackpot, like 4000 nickels ), no problems, just handed them my s&s card, and they asked me cash, check, or refund back to room. i said cash . As a bonus, when closing out the game (play all your coins, just to leave the casino), I wont another 25

i then went to the bingo game (where my dad was playing), and plopped down the cash. needless to say, he was pissed
