We usually budget 100 per each of us per day. Ive never lost money in a cruise casino, the worst I have done is broken even. Usually walk away with enough to cover the Pre/post cruise hotels and Uber rides. We also do not touch the slot machines. I find them to be a losing proposition. The Odds are much better on the Tables.

I enjoy playing slots. I start with a $20 budget and usually win some and lose it back. I have $20 worth of fun. Last cruise I came out $1100 ahead. I know for sure because I only had $200 in my wallet when I boarded and I still had $200 in my wallet when we debarked and an additional $1100 on the S&S card (spent on the spa & jewelry). I know this isn't the norm but it was most exciting. I also have a gown I bought from the ship in October 1999 (I can almost still fit) from my winnings. I don't go crazy but I have fun. When the money is gone it's gone.

If it was anyone else.....good for you AUNTIE.....

Thanks! My DH is a non- gambler . But he sure didn’t mind the boost to the S&S card.Big Smile
