Everyone sees the casino on the ship, but few realize what a business unto itself it is. There are professionals running the casinos at each line who are just as business-savvy as their counterparts at land-based casinos. One part of running a profitable casino it to keep it fresh for players, so most casinos are constantly changing newer slot machines for older ones, to provide the newest games for players. Last year on the Royal Caribbean and Celebrity brands RCCL changed more than 500 machines for newer ones, and this year they plan to swap out 1,000.

Do you know if any of the casinos have switched to the "ticket" technology, or are they still coin/token payout? We'll be leaving on Mariner next week, and not having to handle coins would be one more way to limit virus exposure. (Assuming of course I'm lucky enough to have anything to cash out... )
