Ohio Casinos To Provide Slots In Smoking Areas

Horseshoe Cincy To Be First To Install Devices In Designated Areas


Ohio is set to see some of its casinos offer smokers gambling options.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati is going to be putting in slots in a smoking area. Two more casinos in the state will likely follow.

“This fall, pending regulatory approval, we will introduce a new concept to the market that combines an upscale bar with slot machine gaming and smoking on an outdoor patio, which will enable guests to continue to enjoy the casino experience in a weather-protected space,” Horseshoe officials said in a statement.

Hollywood Casinos in Toledo and Columbus are moving toward similar options.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, all businesses in the Buckeye State are prohibited from allowing customers to smoke except in designated and well-ventilated outdoor patios.
