Ryanair to launch online gambling system on their flights

Tags: Michael OLeary, ryainair, ryainair poker.
Posted on 25 June 2009 by "T".

That the budget airline Ryanair have plans for an in-flight online gambling system is nothing new. Already back in 2005, Michael O'Leary, chief executive at Ryanair had these kinds of ideas. He believed that revenue from gaming and gambling could eventually do away with the need for air fares. But not until now, 4 years later, these plans are highly topical.

All gambling activity on Ryanair planes need's to take place in international airspace, if the gambling system is being implemented. If Ryanair break this law, they will have big trouble with the UK gambling commission that doesn't issue premises licenses for aircrafts. However Michael O'Leary is not worried that there will be any kind of problems with the license, and if everything goes as planned, the online gambling system will be launched in 3-4 years.

Would you prefer a free flight if it required you to rake onboard at least as much as the ticket would have costed? Leave a comment.

Cant Wait trips would pass in a wink of an eye

It would be great to have to "pay" the plane trip with generated rake! LOL
Once i went to Thailand in a nine hour travel... if Ryanair had already this system by that time, i think i would prefer to flight with them. It seems like a pretty good way to spent time up there!

Come on, do we REALLY REALLY need/want this ?

Ryanair are THE most shocking airline ever, I was once diverted by them flying out of Barcelona to a closed airport in France and left to rot for 9 hours till a coach turned up to take us back to spain, which took even longer, to another airport to get a flight back into london. Aww crap!

Could organise a piss up a brewery if you ask me.

poker is booming and the idea sounds not that bad to pastime with poker !

It' s not a bad idea ...I'm only worried about the possibility that pilots will be playing poker as well Cool
 kickinureass26/06/2009 10:59:30 GMT
Gotta be a money making scam, if its part of in flight entertainment then you will be playing
against a computor not other players.(clever software designed by clever people devised to elieviate burden of thoose with too much money) If it was a genuine gesture in the intrests of customer satisfaction they would provide a internet connection( for a fee) on board so everyone could choose thier prefferd online past time.
Next they'll be installing fruit machines, lap dancers and strippers Shock Worship hmmmmm theres a thought, pilot anouncing "GOING DOWN ~ GOING DOWN" and everyone on board cheering, that would be different. lol Evil

Haha, onboard gambling? Sounds stupid,

Next idea:
Slot machines at grocery store
 philhighway26/06/2009 12:50:22 GMT
VEry very good idea
 Jodoli26/06/2009 14:38:38 GMT
Lol i think that all ideas are good to promote poker, but please, this one is a little bit ridiculous. Playing legal poker in travels of plane is a little bit odd. Specially small time travels like ryanair. But I think this idea will not be a reality!
 spanishman27/06/2009 02:05:00 GMT
lol i must remember the words of a teacher : the sillier the better for the people =)
i mean during the flight you can relax and if you need poker soo much you should better let you heal =) because if its so necesary its more than only a hobbi =)
but i think rhianair is often making stupid offers

Not a free flight then is it??
Either way it costs the ticket fee, with a possable win or lose extra.
What if I dont rake enough, they fly me back costing them more??
Crazy.
I just want a comfy seat on my way to vegas.
Stupid idea if you ask me, whos gonna deal with the guy who just lost his life savings on his way home from working away for 6 months.
 fochizza27/06/2009 18:20:44 GMT
Pretty rediculous idea if you ask me, but i wouldn't mind a free flight and arriving at my destination with a big proffit Big Smile
