Penny, you're right. Video Poker is fun. I didn't have much luck in the casino on my latest cruise either, however, it wasn't really my money that I spent.
Long story short, my sister surprised me with a $40 onboard credit for my birthday, and I used that towards a BINGO session. At that BINGO session, I won $200, which I ended up spending in the casino on video poker and Blackjack.
