has anyone won or actually seen someone win big on the slots? i've seen on carnival that some casinos have pictures of winners, but none over $2000.00, yet i've also seen machines touting larger possible payouts on all lines.

I think you're on to something here Jack. I too have noticed the pictures in the casinos of the "big winners", but none Really Big. I've actually seen people hit for $1000 and even $1500, but don't recall ever seeing anyone hit bigger than that. I think in the last few years they've tightened down the machines anyway. In the past, they'd at least let you win enough to keep you going on the first few days of a cruise, then tighten them down at the end to get the money back. Now they don't let you stay even for the start of a cruise! It's not much fun anymore.

See you aboard,

Ken

If you want to play slots then the place for that is Vegas and not on the dry machines on ANY ship. I beleive that the best place to play on ships is on the cards or roulette if you want a mugs chance of seeing the cruise out and coming off a winner and even then you need to play win and walk

We just came back from Dawn Princess. Hubby hit the second progressive on the Triple Double machines..... $615. I've never hit much on a ship, but the night before we left I hit $1,500 on a land casino. We did however see a lady win $9500 back in 1000 on a $5 machine on Splendour.

Dec.2005,we were on the Carnival Legend-- saw a Progessive $1 machine hit for about $8000. It was the 1st. night out. 3 ladies pooled $21 --the 1st pull did it for them. I thought one of them was going to pass out!!! What a way to start your vacation.
