It’s worth noting that over the past decade major U.S. casino operators, across numerous markets, have invested billions of dollars into smokefree indoor air casinos.
Smokefree indoor air is not the enemy of the gaming industry. It is the future. Today, 87% of U.S. adults are nonsmokers, including the vast majority of millennials. There are now around 800 smokefree indoor air casinos and gambling venues in the U.S. with many more on the way.
Smokefree workplace laws and policies increase regulatory parity for gaming operators and, more importantly, save lives.
