You are correct. This type of thing is never done to be kind to loyal cruisers. It is done to entice more gambling which always means more losers than winners. They've run the odds and figure the cost of drinks is worth it, so they make more money in the big picture. As with anything, follow the money and you'll find the truth. I won't be putting any cards in slot machines any time soon. I do not like to gamble.
