Fun Slots on Gem Casino

Recommended Posts

We have not been on the Gem for five years and are going out of Boston this Friday. I'm wondering if any of you had some favorite ( fun) slots in the casino. I'm  not sure what they have on board now. I hope they have some of the newer machines. Thanks for any suggestions.

They will have some slots such as the Wheel of fortune, 777's, poker, etc. You will be able to find one that you like to play with. Just walk around when it is closed so you will be able to know which game you are interested in. When opened, you already know where the machine is located at.

The Dawn had some fun slot last year.  Hoping someone can give us an update on whats available for our Gem cruise.

Just off the Gem. Only saw or heard of one person winning on the slots. He won $1,287 the last day. Others all reported the slots were not ever paying anything out.

That's exactly what I thought of the Gem both times I was on it...slots are REALLY tight! Breakaway and Escape slots are great Gem was horrible (for me). Had fun playing the lock it links last time but took a beating on every single machine I played. Not just me either everyone was commenting the same and I never saw any winners over the week. OP hope you have better luck!!!

Just off the Gem. I really did not like the slot selection in the casino. Payouts were   poor. Only saw one winner and he was playing a $1 machine.

Last May on Gem, I found one machine I really liked, but if it was not available I tried to play slowly on other machines until it opened up. I came out ahead by about $500.00 for the week. My husband found a newer Chinese themed machine with the bowl of coins that fills up as you play that he liked, but he did not come out ahead. Wherever we go on land or sea, he refers to Lock It Links as "Loser Links" 😁

Thanks, everyone. I guess i will test the machines gingerly this time. I always find the slots to be tight on cruise ships, but I was hoping people were winning on the Gem. I will report back.

Was on the Gem in March of this year. Several winners on slots, but not me! We liked the Lock-it-link slots. There are 4 in a row. Had a lot of fun cheering the other players on. Did not see the largest jackpot hit on these, but the next largest was hit 3 times that i was aware of in 10 days. There are 3-4 Banana King slots, seen the jackpot hit on 2 of them. DH did horrible on 3 card poker table. Best of luck to you and hope you have a great cruise!!

Thank you! We like Lock N Link also. I don't usually do well on Banana King, but I may try.

Just off the Gem and the the Lock-it-link machine was lucky for me.  The first one in the bank of four.  No huge payouts but won $120 one time and $88 another.  They also had the gold fish machine, which I love but the graphics totally need to be fixed on it, the colors are fading.  It was hit and miss, but got lots of bonuses, which is the fun part.  Have fun on your upcoming cruise!
