|Victory to Debut 21st Century Slots|
CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (July 1) - When the highly anticipated Victory Casino Cruises gaming ship lifts anchor, players will be both elated and impressed with an array of games unlike any other casino ship in the nation.
Over 600 of the most contemporary and shimmering slot machines, some making their Florida debut, await them together with other electrifying games as modern as anything in Las Vegas. The operators of Victory Casino Cruises have gone to great lengths and considerable investment to offer an advanced entertainment experience set in a trendy atmosphere. “Everything you see in Vegas, you’re going to see on this ship,” beamed Victory Slot Manager Chris Gozevich. “Never before has a casino ship had this type of product, ever. We’re all very proud of that. The customer will be very happy. All of our products are LCD. No more old screens. Everything is state of the art, flat screen, touch screen and top notch.”
There are about a half dozen manufacturers producing slot machines today and Victory has tapped the genius of each. The types and sheer number of games are limitless. But it’s the technology that will dazzle. For example Super Jackpot Party, the latest from Williams Manufacturing, is a slant top found throughout the ship. Bally’s Alpha Quick Kicks is one of the premiere and most popular software slots on the market featuring stand alone progressives and 5 tier progressives.
“For every coin in, the progressive will increment,” Gozevich said. “You’ll have your individual wins. The maximum is unlimited until it hits. Customers love them. That’s what they want and we’re offering it to them.”
Victory knows most customers obtain an adrenaline rush playing the slots. Aboard Victory, they can play slots from a minimum of a penny up to $100 a pull. In order to qualify for anything worthwhile, a minimum play of a quarter is recommended. A full spectrum of configuration of denominations is available.
As you move about the sleek and remodeled Victory Casino Cruises ship, you’ll also notice over 70 popular video poker games. Video poker starts at a quarter up to $2. Gozevich said Victory video includes the latest games such as Jacks Are Better, Joker Poker and Deuces Wild and several others from Game King.
Roulette players are in for a special treat. Megastar 8 is being offered for the first time anywhere in Florida. It’s an electronic roulette wheel with digital screens that accommodate up to 8 players. “This will catch on,” Gozevich promised. “There are no chips, but we will also have our regular roulette tables (with chips).” Three Craps tables will also be rolling for high action fun.
The second deck VIP Lounge is worth aspiring to, where all games are $5 minimum and up with the option to play up to $100 a pull on some slot machines. High stakes Blackjack and Baccarat are also featured here. Elite players are qualified monthly based on bets wagered and payoffs earned.
But it’s the third deck on Victory (where customers board) that especially ignites the impulse to play and win! The floor is large, bright and very appealing to the customer’s senses. It’s where Bally showcases its newly manufactured Cash Wizard, a first time product in the cruise industry. You spin the wheel on the touch screen for a highly interactive and exciting progressive experience. Deck 3 also offers slots and quick hit software such as “Money Returns” and “Quick Hit,” as well as IGT’s newest slot hit, “Sex in The City." Another prominent feature on the floor is “First Class Adventure Jackpot,” a community progressive where every player is shooting for the same jackpot. Players can see what they’re competing for on large screen monitors. Regulars can also try their lucky hand at Fort Knox and Mr. Cash Man, which are very popular in Florida. Weekly slot tournaments (tentatively scheduled for the Wednesday day cruise) will be conducted on the 4th deck. Players with the highest totals advance to a ritzy Tournament of Champions with a grand jackpot of $2,500.
Loose slots, higher payback is the Victory mantra. “You’re going to earn more bang for your buck here,” Gozevich promised.
After Coast Guard approval, Victory Casino Cruises plans to sail twice daily from Terminal 2 at Port Canaveral. For additional information, click www.victorycasinocruises.com, phone (321) 799-0021 or check out Victory Casino Cruises on Facebook.
