Default On board Casino

Has anyone ever had any luck on the on board casinos? And if so on what games? Do you have to report your winnings?

I've seen folks win on a couple of slot machines. But, I'm not much of a gambler so I don't hang around there much. I put $20 into a slot and played for a bit and ended up winning $32. I left! My DH, isn't a lucky player. He left his alloted deposit at the table games. Remember, the house always wins the majority....otherwise they wouldn't be in business.

I am waiting for the day I win more than a buck or two: I will be glad to fill out the forms thank you!!!!

WE usually spend a few hours a day or night in the casino, I just consider this a form of entertainment, but yes, some do win.

We just came home from a 10 day on the Emerald. The Casino was alot of fun. We usually played the quarter machines. There was about 20 quarter/fifty cents machines that were connected to this game, called the Captains Bonus where a random slot machine in this group would win money. The Capt. Bonus was up to $700., the Lt's. Bonus was $100. and the Petty Officer's Bonus was $35.00. So when the money would get close to these amounts, you could win by just sitting at that slot where it was randomly selected. My husband I did win. One night he just sat down and won the Capt. Bonus of $500. and was only playing about one minute. We entered a slot tournament also. I came in 2nd. That was $20. and was alot of fun. There are two non-smoking nights in the casino (usually the formal nights). They have blackjack, craps, penny, nickel, dollar and five dollar slot machines. Have fun...
