Q

Does Royal Caribbean issue W2G forms after winning money at sea?

A

While the Casino is open in US Territorial or International waters, all US Citizens or Residents will be issued a W2G form and required information will be reported to the US Internal Revenue Service for the following events:

  • Individual slot machine jackpot of $1,199.99 or more
  • Bingo session win totaling $1,199.99 or more
  • Single table game payout carrying odds over 300 times the wagered amount
  • Win a Lotto amount exceeding $599 but less than $5,000

The above scenarios are also in effect for Non US Citizens or Residents while in US territorial waters when a 1042 form will be issued.

Please be advised that Driver's License or Passport as well as Social Security Number will be required to be presented at time of payment.
