I didn't know the roulette tables were $1. I'll have to try them next time. I used to be able to play on $20 for at least a couple of hours. Not so with the video poker machines. $20 lasts about 2 minutes

Penny, they had low limits on most of the table games the first night. I didn't play, but I think the roulette was 50 cents.

I've not played any table games yet. I don't know how. I understand BlackJack, but Craps and Roulette I am at a loss. I am much better at figuring out slot machine odds and payouts.

Penny, you will love this. Someone had left a nickel credit on a poker machine I passed by. I played for 5 minutes trying to win or cash it out. I don't understand all the lines etc. I must have won something for it to keep letting me play.

Gary, thanks for the pic of the roulette sign. I innocently went in the casino many years ago with a video camera to show my parents the machine I won on. I was promptly told to turn it off by security, and the casino wasn't even open. That was before the phone camera age though.

I was told once that I could not take photos while they were closed. I had already taken a bunch and they did not ask me to delete those. It does not make sense to me.

Dwayne, I was on a pretty tight budget on our last cruise also and actually felt more rested when the cruise was over! imagine that! Anyway, I played max bet on Wheel of Fortune each day (for short time) and never hit a wheel or anything. On the last night, I got down to one credit and rather than adding more for max payout, hit the button and guess what??? the wheel..... Oh well!

At least you got something tncruiseman, those dang video poker machines have not been kind to me at all lately. I don't understand the picture thing either. Like you're going to reverse engineer the machines? Vegas is the same way, though. Must be some 1800s law on the books that a picture will permanently scar our youth or something like that

tn, that sounds like my luck sometimes. Every time I hit a good spin to keep me going I only had one quarter in.

Penny, tn didn't get anything much. It takes the max bet to make the wheel spin. This lady made the $1 machine wheel spin twice in close order. I think she ended up with $800. And there I was dropping a quarter at a time. Oh well, I had fun and met a lot of nice people.

Fun and meeting new people is what it is all about. I mainly go in the casino with hopes to break even - cause I sure need the money! LOL
