For most people of the world, Las Vegas, United States, is the global capital of land-based casinos. Yeah. there is Macao or Atlantic City, but are they as famous as Vegas is? The LV treap is an unforgettable adventure for all gamblers. Luxury halls, expensive drinks, excellent services, and absolute freedom — here are the most common things that come to mind. You can spend your time playing and smoking in casinos… but is that actually a good idea?
Today, when the health question becomes critical, gamblers, workers, and professional associations are concerned about the air quality. Can you smoke in casinos when playing slot machines? Yes, for now. But the situation is changing rapidly.
The question escalation during Global Gaming Expo
American Ling Association and American Heart Association are those who are confident that smoke-free casinos at Las Vegas hotels — are a great idea. And it’s not only for non-smoking workers. but also for non-smoking visitors, too. The malicious effects of passive smoking are proved by many types of research.
So what is the idea? A new coalition that is called Casino Employees Against Smoking Effects (CEASE) is voicing to turn all gaming halls like MGM resorts International or Carnival Cruise into the smoke-free casino.
Who will stand against Non Smoking Casino?
The main concern that stops business owners to provide smoke-free casinos in Las Vegas is that people will not come. All changes are difficult, especially for those who are used to some things. If regular players are used to playing BlackJack with a glass of whiskey with ice and a cigar, would they come, if the gambling venue will ruin their tradition?
The Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights (ANR) claims that there are many countries, cities, and venues that follow the non-smoking policies. And they are still working, so people can agree with new rules.
And what do you think? What does smoke free mean for business and for people?
