Casinos Could Come To South Carolina Through Casino Cruise

March 27th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer

South Carolina is the state in which any card or dice game is technically illegal, be it a game of poker or something as simple as Monopoly, Yahtzee, or poker. Now, one South Carolinian city, Charleston, is contemplating the addition of casino boats in order to boost revenue for the region.

Mayor Keith Summey of North Charleston, as reported by the Post and Courier of Charleston, stated that he is hoping for a report before two months time over whether or not the gambling cruises would be allowed. He continued to state that the lower revenue income, as caused by the recession, should have no restrictions on considered options.

Scouting efforts are already underway to gather information over locations where gambling boats currently operate, such as Brunswick Georgia and the Myrtle Beach area.

These boats, according to Summey, would operate as any other gambling cruise. Until the boat reaches international water, it shall be a standard day cruise. Upon leaving American water, however, gambling opportunities will open up to the passengers. Boats such as this are found in several states, not the least of which is Florida.

According to a state law, as passed in 2005, local governments were given the option over whether or not this type of cruise would be allowed. This is similar to the rules behind the best online casinos, which state that, under the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, each individual state would have the power to dictate whether or not they would allow online casinos.

Florida has recently had trouble with their gambling cruises, with bankruptcy a major issue for some of these providers, most notably the Palm Beach Princess. South Carolinian, however, have few other options for casino gambling. They do have access, however, to South Carolina Online Casinos.
