Smoke-Free Casinos Inevitable Everywhere, Advocate Says

March 26, 2012   When the $2.4 billion Revel casino opens April 2 in Atlantic City, visitors will be able to indulge themselves with gambling, gourmet dining, drinking and dancing. But not smoking. The 1,898-room resort, which boasts stunning ocean views and is New Jersey’s first new casino in nine years, will allow smoking in only one area—an outdoor spot near a nightclub. The Revel is getting lots of attention not only for its potential economic impact, but also for the decision to open as the state’s only smoke-free casino.

“Many people have avoided casinos because of the secondhand smoke, so it’s a great chance to attract a more diverse clientele to Atlantic City,” says Bronson Frick, associate director of Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights, which has pushed for smoke-free public sites since 1976. “It’s also part of a growing national and global trend.”
