Casinos and ships have a long history in common. The paddle steamers that sailed the mighty Mississippi River later became entertainment venues and casinos with slot machines and table games for everyone who came on board.
But even if some of the paddle steamers still serve as casinos, when you gamble at sea, think of the giant cruise ships that carry passengers around the world. The world’s most glamorous gaming halls can be found on these passenger ships.
Ship casinos come in all shapes and sizes, from intimate casinos on superyachts to game rooms on cruise ships that can rival medium-sized Las Vegas casinos.
