Smoking ban no threat to casino revenue, report says

Plaza has announced a ban on smoking in its casinos. The report claims that it does not affect gaming revenue. It also takes aim at a report commissioned by New Jersey's casinos in February. New York, New England and Pennsylvania have already banned smoking. Las Vegas is the only place where it is legal. The main casino workers' union is threatening a strike in July. If new contracts are not reached, the union will walk out. In New Mexico, smoking is allowed on up to 25 percent of the casino floor. There are four casinos that offer smoking: Parx Casino in Philadelphia, Empire City in Yonkers, and Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.

The casinos on the Las Vegas strip still allow people smoking indoors. A leading figure in Atlantic City has said that the end of smoking is inevitable. It's illegal in the city to smoke in almost any other building in U.S.

Las Vegas holiday travel still strong amid omicron concerns

Las Vegas holiday travel for Christmas and New Year's Eve is still strong. The reason is mass vaccinations and now the booster shot. Some cities and states lifted mask mandates, but Nevada's precautions may bolster consumer confidence. "Casino and hotels have put in a lot of care. They haven't lifted restrictions that some other places have done," Amanda Belarmino said.

Casinos are booming with historic revenues in Nevada, Strip

September is the seventh consecutive month that casinos have posted a billion dollars in gaming revenues. The previous record was eight months in a row from November 2006 to May 2007. The success of casinos can be attributed to the demand for leisure travel, the Raiders and the return of live entertainment. Sports betting is also helping the casinos. There are also risks associated with casinos, such as masks.

In Midst Of Rebound, Vegas Casinos Faced With COVID Again

Springtime was good for the Las Vegas casino industry. COVID cases are resurging in Clark County. The Southern Nevada Health District recommends that everyone wear masks in public spaces. On Tuesday, the Clark Board of Commissioners voted to require employers to wear them. There is no return yet to the widespread masking mandate that was lifted in May. The commissioners plan to revisit the topic on August 17. They can't afford to have major conventions choose to go elsewhere.

Now Las Nevada is starting to show significant signs of recovery. Caesars Entertainment Inc. and MGM Resorts International revealed that bookings were increasing. Casino floor operators can operate at 50% capacity for the first time in months.
