A cruise group slot pull works like any other group slot pull.
However, because of the closed nature of a cruise where people get together for a longer period of time, and because many times people create social media groups ahead of a cruise date, there tends to be more organization around such opportunities vs. a land-based casino, so they’ve been gaining popularity.
For the uninitiated, a group slot pull is a format where multiple players put in a set amount of money per person, and then gets to do a set number of spins that equal that amount. So for instance, if each group member puts in $100, and the group is doing $10 spins, each person would do 10 spins, equalling their $100 into the machine.
The group shares in all wins and losses, so the money left at the end is equally divided among those who participated.
How taxes are handled in the event of a handpay tends to be part of the agreement around the group, whether it’s deducted from the winnings or handled by the person running the group pull.
For those who don’t necessarily have a big budget to bet high, it can be a fun way to get a taste of that bet level while doing so as part of a group, where you can have fun together, win or lose. It allows the opportunity to do so without risking as much as doing it on your own, and by pooling money together gives more chances for that bonus to come around or big win to put the group ahead.
On some Brian Christopher Slots Cruises, group slot pulls are in the list of activities, often as a mega group pull format since there’s usually over 100 participants in a single group pull!
