There Is No the Better Place For Smokers than Las Vegas

Las Vegas - What place does attract the genuine gamblers, people who know how to rest and have a good time? It is indisputable that the name of this luring place is Las Vegas. There is no a man in the world that does know about such illustrious locality. The most populous city in Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for gambling, shopping and fine dining, all these concerns Las Vegas. It bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is reputed for the number of casino resorts and associated entertainment.

Las Vegas

You will ask why Las Vegas appeals smokers. The answer is quite simple. As compared with other resorts, where smoking is banned, Las Vegas is holding strong. The Strip is among the last great refuges for smokers to congregate. This is the unique place where smokers feel themselves free, comfortable and they are not oppressed by smoking ban. Although Nevada law generally bans smoking indoors, it makes exceptions for bars and casinos; outdoor areas are also generally exempt. Regardless the fact that there is a sufficient number of non-smoking areas in Las Vegas, there are being opened lots of smoking indoor facilities whose number excels the non-smoking ones.

An accountant from San Francisco, Margie Martinez, sais that she adores Las Vegas with its incredible opportunity to smoke in the casinos. “What can be more pleasant than taking delight from a game with a cigarette in your mouth, that bears you up, enforces and encourages you get excited,”- stressed Martinez. Being accustomed with all smoking bans, you forget about the smoking freedom in Las Vegas casinos. “I forget sometimes and then go, Oh! I can smoke!”- added the accountant.

And last month, the giant City Center project was opened on the Strip to protests from non-smokers. The 18-million-square-foot complex of hotels, condos and shops is expansive and architecturally progressive. But even this new development doesn’t dictate non-smoking policy. City Center’s Aria casino, with its coffee-brown-colored carpeting and decor, high ceilings and scented air, is not inferior to Las Vegas installations. Blackjack dealers at Aria are protected by air curtains at the table area that blast a wall of fresh air to neutralize smoke from players. Still not many casinos can boast the similar installations.

There are gamblers who sick and tired of smoking which covers the whole gambling room. A non-smoker from Yuma, Brandon Ohm, says: ”I’m bothered by it. If someone starts smoking, I’ll just get up and go somewhere that’s not so cloudy.” His friend, James Lang, a mechanic from Bothell, supports his utterance and tells: ”I’ll wake up feeling sick the next morning and my clothes smell.”

Even occasional smokers are bothered by the prevalence of smoke in casinos. Frenchie Evans, a retired Air Force technical sergeant from Oakland, said he’ll sometimes light up a cigar, prompting some nearby folks to give him “the eye.” Despite enjoying the rare cigar himself, Evans gets annoyed with Vegas’ excessive smoke at times. “If I don’t like it, I’ll move,” Evans said.
