Carnival Cruise Line to Offer Online Gambling

Luxury cruise line Carnival has announced that it has signed a deal with Scientific Games and will offer mobile online casino games while its ships are out in international waters.

The games will be deployed through a casino platform designed in Carnival's image. The mobile casino will offer slots and table games from Bally, Play'n GO, PokerTek, and Las Vegas From Home. The app for the casino will be made available through Apple App Store and Google Play.

Commenting on the deal Carnival Corporation Senior VP of Global Casino Operations said, "For the first time, we're bringing the casino to our guests so they can play their favorite games on their mobile devices when they are lounging by the pool, relaxing in their rooms, or anywhere else onboard."

Scientific Games President of Interactive Jordan Levin added, "This relationship expands the reach of our mobile wagering platform and enables Carnival to engage with their guests in a whole new way by offering a gaming experience that adds to their vacation at sea."
