Tami Smith. Could anyone tell me if there was gambling on the Titanic?

Dave Gittins Member. Apr 11, 4, Mostly by Captain Smith and White Star. About 1, were losers. Sam Brannigan Member. Feb 24, 8 Michael H. Standart Member. Dec 2, 58, Easley South Carolina. Hello Tracy, gambling was quite common on all the liners. Enough so that they attracted professional gamblers in numbers enough to present quite a problem for the lines to deal with. Nailing down who these blokes were is something of a problem for the historian as these people were not anxious to draw a lot of attention to themselves for obvious reasons.

Then there was also the sort of gambling Dave alluded to. Unfortunately, the Titanic was the one to roll snake eyes. Jan C. Nielsen Senior Member. Dec 12, 1, 0 0. Brereton: Mystery Man" --which is about one of the gamblers aboard Titanic.

Dave Hudson Member. Apr 15, 0 Tami, There were many profesional gamblers on board most travelling under assumed names. In bringing this to the knowledge of Travelers, the Managers, while not wishing in the slightest de- gree to interfere with the freedom of action of Pa- trons of the White Star Line, desire to invite their assistance in dicouraging Games of Chance, as being likely to afford these individuals special op- portunities for taking unfair advantage of others.

All gambling was in the form of card games, usually played in the Smoking Room. Hope this helps, David. Thanks so much to all of you. My 14 yr old is doing class research on the Titanic and I wasn't quite sure where to go for help. You have all helped immensely Emily Bisignano. I also think that White Star Line was making a huge gamble with the Titanic.

Yes-people did gamble as much, if no more, than people today. People played cards in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd class Smoking Rooms. Anybody up for a game of Poker, maybe Blackjack? We could always try bumper pool with icebergs. Bad idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cordially, Michael H. Chris Gregory. Modern cruise ships and larger ferry boats now have casinos.

Obviously casinos were there in America and France at the time but did any ships have them on board at that time? Chase Babin Member. Jun 8, 6 0 I would think that when the men played cards in the Smoking Room, they would gamble among themselves.

Jordie Dean Byington Member. Oct 31, 14 0 Was it because of religious reasons or did they have other reasons behind it? I also would like to know if anyone knows why stewards were allowing card playing on the fateful Sunday? Bob Godfrey Member. Nov 22, 6, 59 UK. The White Star Line did not forbid gambling except for its crew members. The only reference to this activity in the 1st Class passenger booklet is a warning about professional gamblers and a suggestion that to avoid risk passengers should refrain from 'games of chance'.

Suggestions like this were made "without wishing in the slightest degree to interfere with the freedom of action of patrons". Some smoking rooms carried signs with the message: "Gentlemen are respectfully requested not to play for high stakes. Certainly there were often complaints from non-gambling smokers that there was far too much card playing in the smoking room, the only place where smoking was allowed inside. But the Shipping Lines were reluctant to consider a ban, as card players consumed a lot of alcohol and that was very profitable for the Lines.

The Captain of the Germanic had this to say on the subject: "Men who gamble drink; and largely, too. The profits derived from the sale of these wines and liquors during the traveling - or, I may say, the gambling - season are so great that it is not to the interest of the steamship companies to abolish gambling, or to interfere in any way with the comfort and enjoyment of a class of passengers who so materially add to their income.

Thank You. Ioannis Georgiou Member. Mar 18, 2, Germany. Jordie Dean Byington said:. I was just wondering why the White Star Line did not permit card playing on Sundays? But I know there is a lot of books that publish things like third and second class passengers were allowed into the Sunday Service in the first class dinning room.

I could also be confused with my memory and the fact that I am thinking of is the steward kept the lounge or smoking room open longer than the normal closing time so that passengers could keep playing their card game. But I thought that the CDI documentary said that the White Star Line did not permit card playing at all on Sundays but it just could be a faulty memory on my part. Thank you! It was not a "attack" against you. I know that it is stated in a few books and was wondering if you might have seen another source for it.

I for my part have not find a primary source. In Titanic's story there is much made up or general opinion which has been presented over the years as a fact even there is 0 evidence for it or the source of the claim is unknown or made up in later years. That is good to know. It is one of those things I have always remembered growing u p about the Titanic and was curious if there was any truth to it or if it was true the reason behind it.

I did not feel that you were attacking me. I just felt like to that my memory could be playing tricks on me and I was confused with something else. Loannis I was happening to be listening to an audio book of A Night to Remember by Walter Lord and in chapter two it states that card playing was not permitted on Sundays.

That is the only one for sure that I came up with. And by the way my name is not Loannis. Show hidden low quality content. You must log in or register to reply here. Similar threads.
