Slot play on Holland- Cash only???

Recommended Posts

On Carnival & Princess, we generally charge our onboard account to play the slots. I called HAL today to find out if there was a service fee for doing this (no charge for slot play on either lines we usually use for slots). I was told by the HAL rep that you can no longer charge funds, that you need to use cash, or cash funded accounts. 

 

Does anyone that plays in the casino know if this is now the case, or did I get a rep that did not know what he was talking about? Really don't want to carry that much cash.

Not true.  You can easily charge casino purchases to your cabin via your cabin card.  Perhaps the rep you talked to thought you were referring to using OBC to pay for your casino purchases, which is no longer allowed IF the OBC comes from HAL.

In less there has been a change in the policy in the past month (there would have been a big pushback!), we have always charged our onboard account (not a cash account). Any balance is simply part of the balance of all charges made on the ship. Requiring a separate cash account would be completely lame!

I’ll join with the other 2 confirming you can charge slot play to your on board account.  You just put your key card in, set up a password and charge.

 

I hate to say it but you can often call 3 different people in Seattle (for the general line) and get 3 different answers 😉

Had no problem charging slot play to my shipboard account on the Amsterdam this summer - insert card, create pin, transfers funds ....... lose funds,  re-enter pin, transfer more funds ....... wash rinse repeat :)

Yep, that sounds about right in my case for the odd time I happen in the casino 😄

FYI...there is a charge when you get chips at the table. Maybe there was a communication error in understanding the question?
