It should be illegal to allow smoking indoors. And apparently the casino could careless, because they allow this to go on. (I guess Indian Casinos are exempt from California State Laws.) Second hand smoke kills. Plain and simple it does. You can go upstairs and play in the non smoking area if you're inclined to be in a "back room" style playing area with no atmosphere at all.
As for the machines.... there is NOTHING fun about watching your money disappear., nothing.
I'm a talker... 99% of the people I spoke with claimed to have won nothing. The couple of people that I noticed with big wins mentioned to me that the win covered their losses. I did speak with one lady (black cape, platinum wig, who claimed to have won 5 cars there.)
There should be laws to protect people from the smokers, and laws to protect the Senior Citizens from loosing all their money.
I don't mean to knock anyone... but it's a known fact that as we age, we loose certain mental skills and the casino knows this good and well, the casino has these cartoon style gaming machines that these seniors sit at for hours on end., I spoke to this one man in his 70's playing a penguin machine., he had the joy and glee of a 5 year old and yet had was down to his last dollar on the machine. (very sad) His wife picked him up, rubbed his back and told him it was time to go and it reminded me of trying to get a child to leave a playground. He pleaded to his wife for more money. (very sad.)
There should be laws. The Casino should be enjoyed... but rules should be in place. We wouldn't let a 5 year old go in there and play, should we allow some seniors with not as sharp of a mental capacity? It's a fact of life., we should protect our senior citizens from places like this and we should protect the rest of the community from people who smoke indoors near people knowing good and well that second hand smoke is known to kill people.
On a positive note.... the Buffet... Yummie. Who is making that Flan? (Tasty.) the Chili Colorado... again... major yum. And the lady who makes the fajitas and the won-ton. (Although, the Won-Ton reminded me of what dirty socks must taste like, truly terrible.) Lovely lovely lovely lovely lovely lady chef though. On our stay she was always kind and friendly and is a expert chef providing tasty food.
