Smoking Now Back in Atlantic City
Posted: November 17, 2008
The temporary smoking ban imparted on Atlantic City is now over.
The ban ended at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, and casinos have now reverted to the old smoking regulations, which will allow people to smoke on no more than 25 percent of a casino floor.
Casino owners had vehemently opposed the new ban and called for immediate action from the City Council. Owners cited already-plunging revenues as their main argument for overturning the ban.
Atlantic City casino revenue has been steadily declining for about a year. A recent report showed that the amount casinos won from gamblers dropped 15.1 percent in September when compared to the same month a year ago.
After the ban went into effect Oct. 15, casino revenue, according to an Associated Press report, dropped 19.5 percent in the seven-day period between Oct. 17 and Oct. 24.
