Celebrity CruisesLas Vegas, NV ― Cantor Gaming and Celebrity Cruises an-nounced yesterday that they have entered into an agree-ment to provide the cruise industry’s first complete mo-bile casino gaming solution.

Cantor Gaming’s mobile gaming technology will offer a wide selection of casino-style games to Celebrity’s guests, including those on trips to The Bahamas.

“We are excited to partner with Celebrity Cruises and bring our premier mobile gaming technology to its high-end ships, allowing passengers to play our popular suite of casino games while enjoying their vacation,” said Lee M Amaitis, president and chief executive officer of Cantor Gaming.

“This is an important milestone for us, as it marks our first venture bringing our mobile gaming platform to the cruise industry.”

Celebrity’s guests will be able to play the full suite of Cantor Gaming mobile casino games on their personal smartphones and tablets by downloading the application, which is compatible with Apple and Android devices.

The free download will be available to Celebrity customers across its shipboard wi-fi network. These games will include a selection of slots, table games and video poker, all of which will be available on the Cantor Gaming mobile gaming platform.

The new technology will be installed on Celebrity’s five award-winning Solstice Class ships and four popular, recently “Solsticized” Millennium Class ships, in the coming months.

Celebrity Cruises’ senior vice president of operations Greg Purdy said: “We are delighted to bring Cantor Gaming’s innovative mobile gaming solution into our modern luxury vacation offering. This state-of-the-art technology allows guests to play outside of the action-filled casino, whether relaxing by the pool, or waiting for their partner to get ready for their night of onboard dining and drinks, and will be an excellent addition to the edgy entertainment we offer onboard.”

“Cantor Gaming’s modern approach to mobile gaming will help us ensure that our guests have an unmatched experience on our luxurious ships.”

Once guests have downloaded the Cantor Mobile Casino application they will be invited to create a “virtual wallet” at the ship’s casino desk to activate and fund their account, following which they can enjoy a broad selection of games on their personal mobile devices anywhere onboard the ship while it is in international waters.

The Association of International Banks and Trust Companies in The Bahamas’ 8th Annual Nassau Conference 2013 is scheduled to be held October 16 at the British Colonial Hilton.
