Celebrity Cruises’ new mobile casino gaming app


Earlier this month, Celebrity Cruises announced they are to install new technology on four ships that will allow guests onboard to enjoy Casino games on their smartphones.

The Casino games, which will be available on Apple and Android devices, are the result of a new partnership between Cantor Gaming and Celebrity Cruises. The two companies will work together in providing the industry’s first complete mobile casino gaming solution onboard four of Celebrity’s cruise ships.

Guests aboard four Celebrity Millennium-Class ships will be able to download the FREE app over the shipwide Wi-Fi network. After downloading, guests need to visit the ship’s Casino desk to activate their account and fund their ‘virtual wallet’, but then games can be enjoyed from anywhere on deck. The new app solution is another way Celebrity are providing rich entertainment to guests, but in a run and convenient way.

Speaking of the new partnership, Lee M. Amaitis, the President and CEO of Cantor Gaming said:

“We are excited to partner with Celebrity Cruises and bring our premier mobile gaming technology to its high-end ships, allowing passengers to play our popular suite of casino games while enjoying their vacation. This is an important milestone for us, as it marks our first venture bringing our mobile gaming platform to the cruise industry.”

Also speaking about the new partnership, Celebrity Cruises’ Senior Vice President of Operations, Greg Purdy said:

“We are delighted to bring Cantor Gaming’s innovative mobile gaming solution into our modern luxury vacation offering. 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.”

He continued:

“Cantor Gaming’s modern approach to mobile gaming will help us ensure that our guests have an unmatched experience on our luxurious ships.”

The games can be played with the Celebrity ships sail through International waters. The digitised casino app will include slots-style games, table games and video poker.
