Can you use obc in the casino?

Yes you can.  You can charge amounts on the machines to your onboard account where your OBC rests as credits.   You don’t have to play it all, either.   You can always cash out whatever you don’t use.  I know that you can also use it at the tables but am not familiar with the process as I’ve never done it.

Thank you, that's what I was hoping.  The cashing out bit mainly 🙂

Beamafar, I was searching for answers for obc’s that the casino give you and came across this answer..wasn’t sure if this answers my question? The OBC that casino gives are credits? Is that correct? and you don’t have to play all of them? Is that what u are saying?

Any OBC you have is assigned to your onboard account.  When you’re using the slots, you can credit an amount to the machine and it’s debited from/to your onboard account.

In the past cash out by casino was possible at X as well but nowadays you need to play all the obc, you are able to cash the winnings only.

I've a lot of, so all into a slot machine, play one game, cash out?

I don’t understand the reference to casino OBC. 

I have an offer for a discount thru the casino and the offer shows obc`s. I bkd the cruise and she saw no obc's on my booking.. I was told by the casino when I recd the offer that I would need to bring the letter with me.

OBC is generally credited to your onboard account.  I can’t imagine your case being any different, TG.   Perhaps you’ll come back and let us know so your experience can be shared with others who may have a similar situation.

Normally,  casinos have tie ups with many cruise lines, to use their ships to conduct their business.

 

Because of these tie ups, the casinos are able to get some cabins on the Cruise at a discounted price (or even free).

 

So these casinos offer these discounted (or free) cabins to those players who have played a lot in the past, in the hope that they will play a lot on the complimentary cruise and give the casino a decent profit to more than recover the cost of the cabins.

 

Casino OBC may be thrown in to get you started in the casino

Take the letter you received to the cashiers cage in the casino and they will give you the amount on your letter.  We did this for $75 on the Seaside and they gave us the money to gamble with.  Think of it as freeplay, not OBC.
