Cantor Gaming and Celebrity Cruises have recently entered an arrangement which will provide the cruise ship industry with a complete mobile casino gaming solution for the very first time.
“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,” said Lee M. Amaitis, president and CEO of Cantor Gaming. “This is an important milestone for us, as it marks our first venture bringing our mobile gaming platform to the cruise industry.”
Full Range of Products
The new mobile app platform will allow the cruise ship’s celebrity guests to get involved with the full range of Cantor Gaming mobile casino products through their mobile smartphones and tablet devices. All they have to do is quickly download the applications, which have been made to be optimised with iOS and Android devices. The download will be available for free to Celebrity customers throughout its shipboard WiFi network. The games on offer will include a selection of slots, video poker and table games, which will all be available to play on Cantor Gaming’s mobile gaming platform. The innovative technology will be integrated into all five of Celebrity’s Solstice Class cruise ships and four more recently ‘solicitised’ Millennium Class ships in the next few months.
The SVP of operations at Celebrity Cruises, Greg Purdy, spoke out about the new deal: “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.”
Set Up Process
Once the guests have downloaded the mobile application, they will be asked to create a virtual wallet in the ship’s casino to activate and add funds to their new account. After doing these initial tasks, they will be able to take advantage of a wide selection of mobile casino games on their mobile devices wherever they are onboard the ship, even when while in international waters.
