Necessity is the mother of invention. With gaming prohibited in the state of Georgia, casino lovers took to the high seas and international waters. Welcome aboard the Emerald Princess Casino.
Prone to seasickness? Look away now. Love cruising and casinos? It’s time to party. The Emerald Princess Casino is four decks and 200 ft of fun. You climb aboard and kill an hour enjoying a light meal, as the ship heads for international waters. Then the casino opens and its down to business.
On board are more than 200 slots, as well as roulette, craps, blackjack, and stud. If the seas are choppy, the roulette can get very interesting!
Slots range in price from one cent to $5. Popular games include Sizzling 7's, Little Green Men, Texas Tea, Wolf Run, Pot-O-Gold, and Wheel of Fortune.
If there are a dozen bingo lovers on board, then it’s time to dish out the daubers. There is both regular bingo and Bonanza bingo with a minimum jackpot worth $1,100.
The Emerald Princess has a poker tournament every Saturday night with a $1,000 guaranteed jackpot. There are also occasional big money games.
If it all gets too much at the tables, there is a dining area on the Bistro Deck with ocean views. You can chill out, enjoy an ocean breeze, and watch the scenery go by. All this for just $10 – that’s a cruise worth taking.
The nearest international airport is in Jacksonville, less than an hour’s drive away. There is a parking lot near the ship’s mooring. The ship departs from the southern end of the Sidney Lanier Bridge. Detailed directions available on the website.
