What's your biggest cruise casino win?

Recommended Posts

I play sparingly, my biggest hit was about $100 on Epic. 

 

My wife had a run on carnival magic a few months ago on final night, made 300 or so.  

 

Who's lucky?

I hit a couple hundred on my last cruise on Celebrity.  Also won about $40, and spent several hours, playing that one where you drop in the quarters to get others to fall.

Lady sitting next to me hit the Progressive on the Quick Hits machine.  I believe it was for $6500.  This was on the Gem’s November 8th sailing

This was on the Escape Aug this year. Was only in the casino about 5 mins when I hit the 3K didn't even get my 1st drink yet. The thousand I hit about a hour later. All week I was winning came home with over 7K

I'm the person who is almost always sitting there when someone else wins big.  My biggest win was around $800 or so.  I was holding my breath while picking mini - minor - major - grand.  Got major.

No Jackpot, but brought $1,000 home after our Epic Mediterranean cruise. Just a run of hits and bonuses on the same machine.

On the Sky in 2018 my husband wasn't feeling well.  Sunday afternoon, left to my own devices I played Blackjack for 2 1/2  hrs and turned my $500 into almost $10,000.  The win paid for our aft penthouse, as well as the 3 other aft cabins for our family!

 

Now if I could do that every time I walked into a casino!

Haha so we had a weird sense of humor. Its officially called Fu Nan Fu Nu. But we call it the FU game. It has 2 chinese babies riding dragons on the top of the machine & if you touch them they jump & giggle. This is above the actual game

It was a long time ago but SS Norway $8250. It was  9 hrs. straight on a sea day. After about 3 hrs.s of betting only $25-$50 a hand I started to go big with some $200 plays and actually was winning. Also had some other folks at the table that knew how to play.

I won $4,000 playing Let it Ride on the Golden Princess in August of 2001.  We never saw that dealer the rest of the cruise.  We jokingly said they threw her in the brig.

 

One time, back when they use to have paper surveys on the last day of the cruise, I filled one out complaining horribly about the casino.  That night I went back for one last try and won enough to pay for my half of the cruise.

I won $200 on the Harmony of the Seas in 2016 using the $5 free play with my C&A status. That's about it for me.

However, a couple weeks ago, also on the Harmony some friends of ours got very lucky in the casio winning over $5,000!

I have won AND lost a lot over the past 30 years.....and I think that the biggest "single" jackpot was $16,000 and change?  I was playing the Ultimate Poker and hit a Royal Flush with multipliers.....on Azamara a while back we kept winning and had money hidden all over our suitcases, wallets, clothes....pockets.....and the nice thing was back then they did NOT issue you a 1099 form from Azamara!  

Just off the Joy and barely hit one jackpot for $2000.....it is always hit or miss....but we enjoy it!

Hello,

I am on the Joy next month, can you remember what the passline min was on craps and the min on the 3 card poker tables. I am not big player, love to play each night with my small $200pd max lose fund.

Had dinner with the Director of Casino Operations aboard the Breakaway this past week.  He mentioned the largest payout he presided over was about $160,000 US.  (across all ships he has worked on...  not just Breakaway)

I’m on the Joy this Sunday and will post back about the minimum on the craps...I read on another post where the person said it was $25 which seems way high 

 

3 cards always been $5 min but I’ll post that as well 

 

If I don’t post by Monday morning remind me here so I’ll see it in my email.

on my last cruise on Escape, over the week I won about $3000 on Let It Ride.  It paid for our tab on board and brought home a good amount.
