Cruise company adopts technology that allows passengers to play casino-style games on their smartphones while onboard ships
A new partnership between Cantor Gaming and Celebrity Cruises was announced last week. The mobile casino gaming company and the cruise company have started working together to provide the industry’s first complete mobile casino gaming solution onboard a cruise ship.
The new technology enables onboard passengers to play casino-style style games on their Apple or Android smartphone devices. Guests can download the FREE Cantor Gaming app, which is available to Celebrity customers via the ship’s Wi-Fi network. Post-download, guests can create a ‘virtual wallet’ at the ship’s casino desk to activate and fund their gaming account. The new app will give passengers yet another way to enjoy rich entertainment in a fun 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.”
“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, which can be played when the Celebrity ships sail through international waters, include a selection of traditional games digitised especially for the app. These include slots-style games, table games and video poker.
The new casino app technology will be installed on Celebrity’s four “Solsticized” Millennium Class ships in coming months.
