The Secret of Cruise Ship Slot Machines and How You Can Get the Edge!

Have you recently heard of any funny business (cheating) going on in Las Vegas? No? That's because the Nevada gaming commission knows that any profits cheated would be far less than profits lost if the cheating becomes public.  Slots are regulated and the %wins can be calibrated by a machine.  It has to be locked into a certain percentage regulated by the gov't. (Technically some can be higher than others as long as they all average the given "take.")

Have you ever heard of cheating in the lottery (outside a bad John Travolta movie?) No? That is because there is regulation in government lotteries.

Who regulates and inspects the cruise ship casino? Anyone?  Did you know the company that runs the casinos on Carnival also runs the Princess, Cunard and other CCL ships?  They are all connected.

Here is the secret that not even most industry insiders know:

First, please read my other entries.  They won't make you rich but you might like them. Okay - you'll only hear this from an almost comatose drunk slot technician at 6am and as far as I know this information doesn't exist ANYWHERE on the internet!

SO - the percentage of a slot machine can be changed, RIGHT? (crowd: YES, TRUMPETDAD)

SO - if you were a cruise line, would you take everyone's money on the first night of the cruise? NO! The people would never come back during their cruise and they would tell all the passengers the slots are rigged or tight and no one would play.

SO - if you were a cruise line, would you give all your money away on the last night? Those people might never come back!  Why would you do that?  If you could change the % payout of a slot machine to maximize profit from a crowd of people over seven days, how would you do it?

Here's how it works, and how it can work for you.  On the first night alot of people "try their luck" and win.  It is so easy to win that even non-gamblers are so tempted to put their winnings back to see if they win more.  Throughout the cruise they ADVERTISE to other passengers how much money they won! You can can win and on the last night everyone wants to try one last time where they lose it all and then some.

Quite simply, anyone caught feeding the slots on the last night might as well buy Carnival stock so you can profit from their extra revenue!  The way you do it is think of a gambling budget for the cruise and play it the first and second nights ONLY.  For the other nights use your winnings for entertainment and stay out of the casino!
