Progressive resets would be illegal in Nevada... and likely most other states.

And yet...

Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Most cruise ships are registered to foreign countries so they probably have different casino regulations.

They have almost no regulations because the generally operate at sea and not in a specific port or jurisdiction.

I would either: 1. not play in the casino at all, or 2. only play machines without a progressive. That's just generally sleazy business.

When the ship enters international waters, the law of country of registration is the law the governs. For that reason, many ships are registered in Panama.

For reasons of low fees and lax mechanical and crewing standards, not particularly for the gambling laws.

I'd be more worried about "Progressive Resets" than anything. Everyone can wear gloves and use a touch screen stylus. Almost a non issue if yoou think about it.



Besides being illegal in Nevada, that does not make my top 1,000 list of things to worry about.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
