Oasis and casino bonus


Recommended Posts

I'm not quite sure how this is supposed to work. I gambled last week on Oasis and Oasis had a sheet by the casino host that had point values and what you can get for it. I should have taken a picture.  If you are on Oasis right now if you could send me or put the picture of what that sheet says, I'd appreciate it.  I had about 900+ points.  I knew it gave me 250 off a new cruise but it also said you are awarded a free interior room.  I'm on the phone with Casino Royale and I'm not confident I'm going to get the correct information.  The sheet they put in my room was before I got to the level of the free interior room.  Does anyone know the rules of this? Did I need to book it at the next cruise office on board? Do I need to book the cruise by 30 days from the end of my cruise? If so, I did not see that on the sheet at the casino host. Any information would be appreciated.

It was supposed to be booked at next Cruise and then they would have a list of sailings with the free interior room. It is not a free interior on any ship. The offer needs to be used within 30 days. 

Thanks for the info.  I'd still like if anyone is on board to send a picture of the sheet for my own benefit of where I missed that.  On the sheet they put in my stateroom door I see where it says that.  I had talked to the casino host a few times and I wish one of them had mentioned that.

Thanks to everyone that answered as that helped a lot.  It was my mistake for not asking specifically what the rules are from the casino host.  I was assuming, and you know the saying, that it worked like when we went last year and earned points.  That you go to the casino royale site and there are $ amount off the cruises all thru the year. This cruise actually was a free cruise from the casino royale site even though she had only earned a 100$ off offers for this past year.  Thanks once again.   I had a very helpful person on the phone last night and they gave me a one time exception and we go on Freedom in November.

I took this pic from Oasis on July 2022 Sailing.  Not sure if there's anything change.

I having a hard time with this.  If one plays slots and earns 1 point for every $5 played to get 125,000 points one would need to play $625,000.00?  Is that really true?

No - you can play your winnings and that counts also so it just depends on how well you do.  Also why would you need 125,000 pts?

I wouldn't.  I mis-read the document 😳  I saw 125K instead of 25K  Ooops!

I figured a person would win some of the spins which why I chose play instead of lose.

So 25K points would take $125K worth of slot play?

It would seem so.  It’s very easy, if you get a machine that actually pays, to put $100 in and earn a lot of points, you win $5, lose 5, win $20, lose it, etc….Conversely you can put $100 in and earn only 20 points if you get no payouts.

slots by far give you the most points.  I disagree how they do the points on card games and craps but my opinion doesn't change things!

So would you say the higher slots or doesn't it really matter? I've never played slots before. There's too many to decide on which ones to play and they seem complicated.

It would stand to reason betting $5 a spin would earn a point whereas playing a quarter a spin would take 20 spins to earn a point.  The wildcard is which machine is paying off more $$.

Thanks for the info. I usually play card games but I guess I can try something different.

I hesitate to give any gaming advice.  I really do not have the tolerance to lose my hard earned money on gambling so I don't do it regularly.  I get the bug every now and then but when I walk away from the game with less money than I started I am reminded why it is an unpleasant experience!!

I also played craps and poker.  Poker gets you no points.  I look at it as entertainment.   But it certainly is not fun losing!!! So if you are looking to gain enough points to make a prime status in the casino royale, then i'd include some slots.  I think prime status is 2500 points. If you are looking to enjoy yourself.  Do what makes you happy.  I went into this particular cruise to see if I could get enough points to get a 'free' cruise.  So I played slots more than anything and I was lucky with some days even ahead.  Toby above is right, if you bet 3-5 dollars a spin you accumulate points faster. I didn't bring that much money with me to do that consistently. I hope that helps and I would do whatever makes you happy as you on a RCL criuse!   One tip is if you play a lot of card games and you think you are not getting enough points, see the casino host and they might be able to adjust it a bit.   Others on this forum would have better knowledge on that.
