Is there a casino on board?

On-board gaming

You’ll find a casino on board all our ships and all offer numerous ways to chance your hand with lady luck.

*With the addition of the Arcade on board Ventura, this falls under the jurisdiction of the casino, therefore the use on on board credit is not permitted. 

Table games

From Roulette to Three Card Poker and Blackjack, join our dealers at a hosted table and try your luck. Casino Chips can be purchased from your dealer. If you’re new to gaming, pop along during the day for a fun and complimentary lesson.

Slot machines

You’ll find a large assortment of the most popular reel and video slot machines. Simply insert your cruise card or cash into the machine to begin. If you need assistance, casino staff are on hand to help. On all ships, receive a £5 free play slot bonus for your first £20 played. You will also earn free house beverages while you play (speak to a member of the casino team for more information).


For some light-hearted fun, seek out the jackpot in an exciting game of bingo. You can win one of five cash prizes at every sea day session whilst the Mega Jackpot is in play. Bingo cards can be purchased from the Casino Cashier or at the venue.

Scratch cards

Our range of scratch cards offer the opportunity to win up to £20,000. Scratch cards can be purchased from the Casino Desk.

Virtual horse racing

Cheer your favourite filly across the line as you watch all the action unfold on the big screen. Bets can be placed with cash or charged to your on board account. 

Payment options

Casino Chips can be purchased in cash from the Casino Dealers at any table or charged to your on-board account.
Slot machines can be played with cash or by inserting your cruise card directly into the machine.

Can a guest request to block their onboard cruise card from use in the casino?

As one of the world’s largest leisure companies we do have stringent regulation and procedures across our fleets for gaming and these include policies which cover Responsible Gaming. As part of this we do offer the ability for guests to self-exclude from gaming in our onboard casino. Guests can self-exclude from gaming by visiting reception on board and signing a form which is then witnessed by the hotel manager. This will disable the on board account from authorising any casino charges.


If guests have any other queries regarding Casino Credit, they should contact Ocean Players Club via
