Default Coral Casino

Does Princess use their own tokens on the Coral slots? They have done this on other Princess ships we were on. Do the slots take bills or does one have to get tokens from the cashier?

The slots take bills and yes they use their own tokens. What was surprising to me was that they had both penny and nickel slots!!!

Wow! That is amazing to me too. Another question not Casino related but instead of starting a new post, what kind of coinage is required for the self service laundries located on every deck? In the past, there was no charge for the washer and dryers, just for soap but I detected in another topic that I can't find now, someone mentioning a $1 each for washing, drying and soap. So does one need coins for that, tokens or do those take bills too?

Nickel slots are getting to be more popular in many casinos than the quarters. They generally have more "interactive" screens, which players seem to like, so it doesn't surprise me that nickels are in the casinos. Most nickel machines have multiple lines where you can play multiple coins, so in many cases, people are playing more in one pull than a three line dollar slot (9 lines, up to 10 coins per line...or $4.50 a pull)!

Last time we were on the Grand (last May), there were a number of nickels, but no pennies. It'll be interesting to see it they have them now.

Supposedly, the lower the denomination, the worse the odds. At least that's the way it is in Nevada.

Frank -

Usually, I can walk away ahead on nickels. I usually put in $20 - 400 nickels. My goal is to either play them out, or get up above 1000 ($50), so when I cash out, the attendant comes and I don't have to carry those nickels around. If I get above 1000, my next goal is 1200 ($60), but I don't let it drop below 1000, and so on. I rarely play the max, as it seems to pay out less often, although when you do hit big, you REALLY hit big. I usually play 1-3 coins and always play all lines. Some machines are better than others. Wheel of Fortune has some lousy payouts unless you hit big. I've had great luck with Ripley's Believe it or Not. Some are just plain fun, like Winning Bid or Jackpot Party. There are also some machines where certain symbols (like wizards or unicorns) will change and you can get large payouts there. Some people have told me that they won over $3000 on nickels. My largest payout has been $300, but I've barely had above that on dollars and quarters.

With the popularity of nickels on the rise, it wouldn't surprise me if they are being programmed differently now. Dollar machines have higher payouts. My boyfriend can just look at a dollar machine and it will pay him. I have no such luck.

The highest jackpot I've ever hit on a nickle machine was $750 and that was in Reno.
