Would you still visit Vegas if you couldn't smoke & "play".

Just curious. I know I prefer to frequent the casinos in my area which let me smoke. In Canada, I must go across the border. Would you stop visiting Vegas? I personally feel smoking and gambling go hand in hand, so.....

Before I get assaulted... this is for the gamblers who smoke and gamble not the people who go find the shows and meals most important.

I'm a Vegas smoker.... If I gamble I smoke and drink... alot... Colorado's casinos will be smoke free in January..... I will not be be hitting the local places nearly as much as I do now... I don't know if I would stop.... but I doubt I would not go as much or enjoy it as much.

If they ban smoking, Vegas is dead to me. I'll fly into Buffalo and meet you at the Seneca Niagara Casino.

Once they banned smoking in casinos in Canada - I discovered Vegas! Oh, what I have been missing! I only smoke when I gamble - it's a part of the Vegas experience for me. We go to Vegas twice a year now at the same cost of what we spending in our local casinos and it's so much more fun!

I admit I smoke at all 3 casinos I go to locally. I don't think I would play very long in non-smoking.

I am a smoker and try to be mindful of others who don't, but I think that smoking is going away. Vegas is slowly going that way as well. It is nice to see ashtrays almost everywhere and know that I am allowed to smoke.

I too am a Vegas smoker. I don't smoke on a regular basis. It's one of the things that appeals to us about Vegas, as there's getting to be fewer and fewer places where you can light up. Give me a drink, a bunch of credits on a machine, and a nearby ashtray, and I'm all set. I know, it's bad for you, but it would probably change the number of trips we take to Vegas if it wasn't allowed while in the casino. (And I'll see you at Seneca too)

The answer is simple....No!

I like Vegas for the decadence. Gambling is a mute point for me. It's entertainment and nothing more. Once they chip away at the decadence, I'm done.

With all due respect it is hard to say you smoke in a casino and also "try to be mindful of others" - unless you just play slots off by yourself or play at tables solo.

I agree that thankfully smoking is slowly going away. I have a hard time understanding people who don't smoke otherwise but light up in Vegas. Why choose times when you are in a crowd of people to do something that is obviously offensive to many others around you?

"not the people who go find the shows and meals most important.

"

and what about people who go to LV and do NOT find the shows and meals most important? you certainly disqualified a lot of people.

I think Dr. Vegas means it is a 'MOOT" point. amazing
