Playing Casino Games While on a Cruise Vacation

Playing casino games during a cruise vacation can be an entertaining and relaxing way to enjoy the greater holiday experience. It can positively distract holiday makers during the long journeys towards popular cruise destinations. This of course does not mean that everyone knows what to expect before starting to play. It is always a good idea to try and understand what cruise ship casinos have to offer and of course what alternatives one can find online. 

Cruise Ship Casino Games and Playing Online

Paying a visit to the casino while on board a cruise ship has become somewhat of a tradition for many holiday makers. People enjoy playing slots, placing bets on roulette tables and challenging blackjack dealers. But considering the amazing sea views, the fresh air and the comfort of a sunbed, why would you spend your time indoors when you can play your favourite casino games online being on the deck of an amazing cruise ship?

Luckily, nowadays online gaming has made it possible to play your favourite cruise ship casino games, anywhere, anytime and from any device. Once you are on board and your cruise ship is on its way, all it will take is just a few clicks and you will be ready to play the best casino games in South Africa and of course the rest of the world. 

Popular Slots

There is a plethora of Ancient Egypt-themed slot machines on most cruise ships. Slot games such as Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe, Age of Egypt and Queen of the Pyramids will keep players entertained for hours with their beautiful graphics, hieroglyphic wilds and bonus rounds. Such multi-reel and multi-payline slot games can also be found online. Even if the screens are smaller on your phone or tablet, the user experience is equally enjoyable. 

Another slot game option that is available both in cruise ship casinos and online is progressive jackpot slot games. By playing popular titles such as Leprechaun’s Luck, Age of the Gods – Ruler of the Sky and Gladiator Jackpot, players have the opportunity to earn a share of the amounts that the game accumulates progressively. 

Table Games – The Online Experience

It is true that when it comes to casino table games, the interaction of the player with other players and with the dealers is part of the overall experience. However, there are players that might feel uncomfortable because of the large groups of people on their left or right side. This is why online casino table games are a good alternative even during a cruise vacation

Players can easily navigate through the pages and categories of an online casino and find numerous table games such as Premium Roulette French, Baccarat, Craps, Caribbean Stud Poker and of course dozens of Blackjack variations. As for knowing when to quit, online casinos make it slightly easier to stop playing before it is too late through wagering limits and of course the choice of self-exclusion. 

Should I Play in the Casino or Online?

There are many different opinions among casino fans in regards to playing on actual casinos or online. Many believe that playing online does not provide the same thrill as physically being in a casino and playing slots or table games. On the other hand, there are those that prefer playing privately, without worrying about being distracted from things that happen around them. In the end of the day, it is all a matter of how every person feels more comfortable.
