The South Carolina Supreme Court has ruled that cruise ships can offer gambling outside the 3-mile limit.

The ruling came in a case testing the state’s ban on gambling in general, and video poker in particular.

The court, however, left the door open for the state legislature to pass legislation specifically banning gambling ships that don’t offer sleeping quarters.
