you cant u have to use your signn and sail card. and even if u won, they study vidoes etc to make sure u dont cheat. and its close to being a federal offense since ur on international water, underage playing with large sums of money

Uh no, no, and no.
You dont have to use your card, just play with cash. the only time my card would come out is if i want a drink, and im not that stupid.
They dont study videos looking for underage kids, they only use videos if something suspicious happens.
since its international waters no federal offences can be charged
and im playing a 5 dollar table, pretty sure thats not large sums of money

The security guards or workers will probably not ask you for your ID until you win!

Honest to god.

My mom is a professional blackjack player and if her Travel agency points dont send us for free her casino points do. Having been around the casino many times, i can assure you it won't do you much justice to try playing a table game under age. Slot machines, i'd say you could get away with, but not a table. Regardless of the amount of money you are turning, the pit boss will ask for your shipboard ID for rating purposes. Even if you are using cash, you will be asked to see your Seapass/SailandSign etc. If you are interested in playing low limit blackjack, i would sugguest seeking a cruise that goes to Nassau, and then going to Crystal Palace Casino @ the Wyndham Resort. I've played with my mom over there many times and i've never been carded or even questioned when coloring up or cashing out and I, just like you can pass for being in my 20s.

hahaa... theres this one casino game on all the ships where you put a quarter in at the top and it goes on a ledge. the ledge moves back and forth and pushes the coin off into a huge pile of coins.... hopefully pushing more and more into the hole to catch... i was SOOOO addicted to that... i must have spent at least $140 on that...

I know right!!!! I love messing with those machines! They really don't bother people who are playing the quarter things either seeing as how u also find them in 99% of all kiddie arcades anyway.

I was in the casino a lot on Liberty of the Seas back in July, and not once did i have a problem. And I'm in a situation similar to u (I'm 16 and look 19-21). Granted, I didn't win any big sums of money but I just used cash on blackjack and sat at the $5 table...and honestly, if u look old enough, most of the staff wont say anything. Remember, the cruise lines are concerned about making $$$$ so they're unlikely to deny you the casino privilege if u look close. And in case ur wondering, the US gov. has almost no say in what goes on 12+ miles off the coast...so dont worry about US laws..

Its not an issue of getting in trouble. The worst i can imagine is they'll ask you to leave...

If you win over X amount you must sign the IRS form. Thats where this practice can become a problem.
