I would never count on any ship having loose slots. I would learn a table game - either black jack or craps. The odds are pretty much the same at those games - each with a slight house advantage. The slot machines can be set to any outrageous house advantage

from experience, i have developed a little theory. that is, the slots are looser on the first evening and day of a cruise, and on the last day and evening of the cruise. and they are looser the more visible and closer to the casino door they are -- to attract passersby. anyone have any thoughts on this? i must say i switched from slots to video poker a couple of cruises ago and have done much better.

way........... back in 1992, my husband and i went on a cruise. he had a whole row of slots all with blue 7's. i wanted to take a photo but was told no, and pointed to the sign, opps, that was really fun. but since that time, the slots are tight all the time in my opinion. so i keep my money

We sailed on the Carnival Conquest 3/20/05. The 5th night of our 7 night cruise, I hit a jackpot of $1002. on a nickel slot machine. I had played $2.00 before I hit the jackpot. The funny thing is, I didn't even know how to play. It was different from the quarter slots. I was just pushing buttons. It was a nice way to end our cruise.
