Using OBC in the slots at the casino

Recommended Posts

My friend and I are booked on the Apex May 30th 2020 7 night sailing and just received 4 perks which includes a total of $675 in obc.  With having the drinks package there's no need to purchase drinks and we won't be buying bottles of wine nor spending money in the onboard shops on trinkets or jewellery. We do however plan on trying our luck at the casino.  How does the obc work if you use at casino?   If you win do you keep all your winnings minus what you play in obc?  Dont have a clue how this works.

You can use OBC in either the slots or tables. However, you cannot cash in the OBC - just have to play it until it is gone. Hopefully, you will win a bunch before it is gone.


Simple example. You set up $20 of OBC in a slot and play $10 per pull.

On the first pull you win $20 and now have $20 cash and $20 OBC, if you cash out now, you will only get the $20 cash and lose all of the OBC.

On the second pull you lose $10 OBC - left with $20 cash and $10 OBC

On the third pull you win $5 - left with $25 cash and $10 OBC

On the fourth pull you lose $10 OBC - left with $25 cash which you can take if you cash out now.
