All the casinos allow smoking in a portion of their casino which are marked by signs. The newest casino Revel is non smoking.

Smoking is allowed in all AC casinos except the new Revel. Sorry for the repeat, ACGambler beat me to the punch.

Pigbob, these casinos are huge and only 25% smoking. Are you still playing pennies? I know what's in the smoking sections of TAJ, Showboat and Resorts.

Casinos in AC doesn't realize that smoke travel. The no smoking sections/tables are right next to the smoking ones. So I'm figuring it's more like 75% smoking.

What we really need is an official distance on how close or far a smoking section needs to be from a non smoking section.

the law does not provide for an "official distance." it only specifies that the 75/25 divide.

my best guess is that the OP is actually a smoker, asking if he will be allowed to smoke in AC casinos, but i could be wrong.

8. Re: smoking in AC casinos

smoking sections make up as much as 25% of the casino floor, which is a lot, when you consider how big many of these casinos are.

but non-smokers complain that all the best machines are in the smoking sections and smokers complain that all the best machines are in the non-smoking sections.

and they're both right; it depends a lot on your personal tastes and preferences.

but you should have plenty of prime real estate in which to play, with a lot of popular machines... and will definitely not get shuffled off to a corner. in fact, you should feel most welcome. you'll be able to smell cigarette smoke the moment you walk in the door of almost every AC casino.
