A cruise ship, called Jacks or Better Casino, just arrived at the Galveston Yacht Basin this month. Once the ship is 9.1 miles off shore in federal waters, guests can take part in sports betting, gambling at tables, and slot machines. If you're feeling lucky tickets are just $15 and each cruise lasts 6 hours. Cruises leave from Galveston twice a day Wednesday through Saturday. The day cruise departs at 11 a.m., and the evening cruise leaves at 6:30 p.m. There is also one Sunday cruise from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
