Princess adds Sportsbook gaming

Here’s a first.  Princess Cruises is now offering a real-time sports wagering experience on its Medallion ships.  Gamblers can place bets on professional and college sports as well as international events. The option is only available in international waters or where legal to do so.

Sportsbook betting burgeoning

Princess says “More than $20 billion in wagers were placed with U.S. sportsbooks in the past two years. This indicates that  sports betting is experiencing extraordinary growth. It could  reach more than $155 billion by 2024.”

The Sportsbook  is part of the Ocean Casino.  However, passengers can try their luck all over the ship. They can  bet on games, blackjack, slots, poker, roulette, bingo, keno and even the lottery.

About MedallionClass

Princess’s Ocean  OceanMedallionTM is a wearable device that provides elite level bandwidth with MedallionNet powered by SES. Passengers can use the gadget as a cabin key, to order meals, drinks and more.

“A fully-connected guest experience now goes well beyond a superior Wi-Fi position. “The Ocean Sportsbook allows seamless wagering,” says John Padgett, chief experience and innovation officer for Carnival Corporation.

*Due to Carnival Corporation’s affiliation with the Miami Heat, bets cannot be place in Ocean Sportsbook on NBA events involving the Heat.

We’re betting the Sportsbook will be a huge success.
