What happens when in the name of togetherness, your traveling companion suggests you both spend the day lounging by the pool, but you’d rather play the slots? Or you want to head to the dining room for a long, leisurely dinner, but your traveling companion’s palm is itching, and it’s hard to ignore that old superstition that says when your palms itch it means money! No problem… Celebrity Cruise Line passengers will soon be able to play casino games even when they are not in a ship's casino, by downloading a free application!
Celebrity Cruises has teamed with Las Vegas-based Cantor Gaming for a cruise industry first – mobile gaming you can access ship-wide. After creating a ""virtual wallet"" at the ship's casino desk to activate and fund their accounts, cruisers will be able to choose from games including slots, table games and video poker to play anywhere onboard. The app is only operational when the ship is in international waters.
The Cantor gaming app is compatible with Apple and Android devices. The new technology will be installed on Celebrity's five Solstice-class ships and four Millennium-class ships in coming months, Celebrity officials said.
