Smoking and Gambling Go ‘Hand in Hand.’ But Maybe Not for Long.

Nicole Vitola is a dealer at Atlantic City's Borgata casino. She helped found a group called Casino Employees Against Smoking Effects. The group has chapters in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. A bill to ban casino smoking in New Jersey has enough sponsors to all but guarantee passage. It has stalled, however, because of political issues. The number of smokers in the United States has shrunk by nearly half over the past two decades. They are 12.5 percent of adults in 2020, down from 23.3 percent in 2000. Smokers make up about 21 percent. of visitors to Atlantic city and 32 percent the casino's revenue.

Legislators are addicted to gambling revenue. The Harrah's casino in New Orleans pays lower taxes than promised, is building a second hotel and planning to open restaurants. Last year, lawmakers approved fantasy sports betting. This year they authorized betting on sports matches and legalized a new type of slot-like machine at offtrack betting parlors.
