I only had to spend $500 to get my 'free' $10 (which lasted about ten minutes). For us the casino is another expected expense of the cruise. We don't really spend any money on other things (maybe that's why we don't win) but that's whats so great about cruising - everyone has a different way of having fun.
Am the say way with limiting how much out of pocket to lose per day. Even smaller for me at $50. I doubt I will be getting a "Free Drink" card either unless I meet a really friendly machine. Even then I don't think I would spend that much time in the casino to play through enough.
