Victory Casino Cruises Launches Victory II in Jacksonville, Florida
Residents of northeast Florida and as far north as Atlanta, GA have been following the progress of the latest ship from Victory Casino Cruises, the Victory II. The ship is now taking advantage of its 10-year lease for docking privileges at Jacksonville's Mayport Village. Completely refurbished and ready to sail, Victory II delivers the excitement of a first-class Las Vegas casino in a 229-feet long sailing ship.
An impressive sight greets passengers as they board the ship. The $10 boarding pass is a bargain price just for the cruise along the Atlantic Ocean and back! For fans of free Internet gaming sites, it is the opportunity to actually see their favorite slot machines, including Triple Diamond, Coyote Moon, and Cats. Push the buttons for real, instead of relying on the click of a mouse. The impressive size and appearance of the 300-plus machines feature an attention-drawing display of the payouts. Relax in the new, comfortable chairs that face each slot.
The outdoor deck is expected to be a popular hangout for anyone looking for a breath of fresh air or a view of the sunset or brilliant stars twinkling overhead at night. Another stroke of genius is a large dance floor capable of handling any guest's style of dancing, whether they are 18-year olds or passengers living it up in their golden years.
Based on the performance of Victory I in Cape Canaveral, Victory II is expected to boost the local economy. The increase in tourism will build business at shops, gas stations, hotels, eateries, and other places of entertainment. Expected guests from Atlanta have a 5-hour drive to reach the port and may decide to make the journey a minication. Savannah, GA visitors are just two hours away, while St. Augustine, FL guest are within 45 minutes of this new Jacksonville casino. The chief requirements are being at least 18 years of age and having valid government ID to present before boarding.
There are seventeen tables for various casino live action games like roulette, craps, blackjack, and 3 card poker. Victory II is limited to carrying 600 people on each gaming cruise. Even sailing twice a day, reservations are expected to fill quickly. Until now, residents in northeast Florida and quite a bit of Georgia were obligated to travel great distances to Cape Canaveral and beyond to take part in gaming. Entertainment like music, dancing, dining, and gaming during a cruise from Jacksonville is too good to pass up. Confirm your reservations aboard Victory II today by calling 855-GO-VICTORY (855-468-4286).

Casino Cruises Return to Jacksonville
MAYPORT, Fla. -- A new casino cruise line is taking a gamble on Jacksonville, dropping anchor in Mayport, and looking to hire about 200 people.
Victory Casino Cruises Coming to Jacksonville Mid-June 2014

Based upon the success he's seen in Central Florida, the owner of casino ship coming to Jacksonville is betting local residents will go all in at the floating gaming establishment.
The Victory II, which will be setting sail from Mayport in mid-June, features a variety of gaming options, food, beverages and entertainment.
Lester Bullock, CEO of Victory Casino Cruises, said the quality of his product is what sets his ships apart from past ships, which weren't able to stay in the market.
"We're delivering a better product," he said. "It's not just gaming, it's an entertainment experience."
Bullock, who also has a ship in Cape Canaveral, said his crew modifies the entertainment to woo the clientele on the boat at any given time. He said during the day, when the crowd tends to be senior citizens, there will be live bands playing oldies.
At night, when the crowd is younger, the ship will have a fully-functioning nightclub on the top deck. He also expects high-quality, fresh food and drinks to be part of the experience.
"There are a lot of moving parts," said Bullock, who is putting the finishing touches on the ship, ticket area and dock, which will have a Key West aesthetic, making the entire area surrounding the ship "quaint and cute."
Bullock said he believes in his ship's ability to not only be successful, but to significantly influence Jacksonville's economy.
"Our direct impact is $10 to 12 million, but I'd say it's worth $30 to 40 million to the economy," Bullock said.
He said he expects to hire between 200 to 250 employees for the Jacksonville-based ship, which is 229 feet long, will service about 600 passengers and will have three decks.
Victory Casino Cruises has a 10-year agreement to dock at its Mayport slip.
"Mayport is a sleepy gem," he said. "I don't know if the locals want it woken up, but it is a gem."
While Florida has attempted to legalize more land-based gambling in the past, Bullock said he is not overly concerned. Right now, he said Jacksonville, northeast Florida and south Georgia is lacking gambling opportunities, and his ship will fill that void.
"If it works in Canaveral, I know it can work here," he said. "We really figured it out."
