Default Casino on Zaandam

I am a first time cruiser on Zaandam in July to Alaska and have some questions re: the Casino

Can you use cash or do you have to do the shipboard credit thing?

What games are available?

What is the min per hand for Black Jack and Poker?

What are the slot machine denominations? nickel dime quarter or what?

I sailed on the Century last Dec. and you used cash. I believe that is true for all ship casinos from what I have read on these posts.
The Blackjact min. was $5. I didn't check out the pokers min.
As far a slots they had 5 cents, 25 cents and 1.00 machines. They also had video poker machines.
My husband and I were pretty lucky. I walked away with 2700 dollars and he won 500 on a dollar slot. I stuck to the 25cent machines.
Good Luck and enjoy your cruise. Can't wait for mine.
