Celebrity Cruises has partnered with Las Vegas-based Cantor Gaming to offer mobile gambling ship-wide on smartphones and tablets.
Mobile gambling will be available on five Solstice-class ships and four Millennium-class vessels. To play, customers download Cantor's mobile casino app and establish a "virtual wallet" account at the onboard casino.
Slots, table games and video poker games will be playable ship-wide via WiFi connections.
"This state-of-the-art technology allows guests to play outside of the action-filled casino, whether relaxing by the pool, or waiting for their partner to get ready for their night of onboard dining and drinks, and will be an excellent addition to the edgy entertainment we offer onboard,” Greg Purdy, Celebrity's vice president of operations, said in a statement.
Like the actual casino, the mobile casino will only be open when the ship is in international waters.Follow @tstravelweekly on Twitter.
