    Angry Butt Out at Seneca Casinos Common Areas

    Effective Feb 15 2018, all Seneca Casino Properties will be smoke free at all eating establishments and common areas. I found this email in my junk bin today:

    We are revising our indoor smoking policy starting February 15, 2018. Effective next Thursday, all non-gaming areas including restaurants, retail shops, public concourses, meeting rooms, restrooms, and elevators are now designated as
    smoke-free zones.
    As always, there is non-smoking gaming available at all of our properties for your convenience.

    For those still looking to smoke,
    your butts are still permitted on the main gaming floor!

    Thank you,
    Seneca Resorts & Casinos

    I don't understand why they just don't ban smoking everywhere. I know they have a niche market with smokers, but they turn off the majority of casual gamblers and tourists.

    This seems to be a way to find a happy medium. We are completely smoke-free in all areas here (Canada), but I understand it's hard for some and they enjoy smoking while they play. I'm glad they have banned it in the restaurants ~ it ruins dining experiences for sure and people can just wait till they're back in the gaming area.
    Home is where the heart is but any spare change I find goes in the Vegas Fund!

    I think they're trying a balancing act hoping to keep everyone somewhat satisfied...
    All of the local "smoking" casino's in my area have long ago banned smoking in restaurants & common areas but as long as smokers have a section on the casino floor where they can "light up" they will adjust and be fine with it...
    Not too many years ago Atlantic City went 100% smoke free and took a huge hit. Casino revenues dropped dramatically and the state changed their decision to allow 25% of the casino for smokers.
    Years later the new Revel opened in AC a non smoking hotel & casino... That did not work out well for them so they eventually changed their policy and allowed a small percentage of their hotel rooms & casino floor smoking... But unfortunately as most of us know the Revel had other problems mainly due to poor planning and bad mgmt decisions...

    I'm a smoker and I can't imagine they've allowed smoking in eating areas until now... it's been so long since smoking was allowed in any eating establishment here, my brain would fry if I tried to pick out a year (I can remember vaguely smoking at the table in a restaurant but God only knows when that was. And it seems disgusting to me now).
