Officials, customers discuss Palace Casinos new smoke-free policy

By Mary Perez

"It's a bold and admirable move for the Palace Casino," said Joseph Weinert, senior vice president of Spectrum Gaming Group, headquartered near Atlantic City.

Bold when 20 percent of the casino's market does smoke, he said. Admirable because the overwhelming majority of Americans don't light up.

The management of the $2 billion Revel Casino under construction in Atlantic City also may go smoke-free when it opens next year, he said.

"It's easier to do when you go smoke-free from the beginning," said Weinert. Converting an existing casino to non-smoking wouldn't be as effective because of the residual smoke.
