If they have banned smoking in poker room at the casino, they can easily do it for the entire casino. Poker players who are addicted to smoking still play poker. Didn't kill the poker rooms when they banned smoking, in fact the numbers of players increased.

By your logic, it they allow smoking in casino, they can allow smoking in poker room, because non-smokers play in casino and wait for fresh air. You're actually making a point not that they can, but they don't care. Poker rooms, I don't know why, think they were afraid of scaring away the youngins.

I don’t smoke but I actually like that it’s allowed in Vegas...IMO that’s part of the “only in Vegas” mystique, just like walking out in the street with a beer.

Second-hand smoke has to be extremely bad to bother me. Also it’s hard for me to believe that a few nights per year of secondhand smoke can be that bad considering lots of people survive many decades of heavy smoking. I guess this makes me ignorant AF.
It’s all about making that GTA

If a vaccine comes out in 2021, the US can only manufacture 5 to 10 million doses a year. If people need 2 doses, there'd need to be near 700 million doses in the USA. Casinos will open long after you are dead, maybe the 22nd century.

For the testing testing testing crowd, they are gonna run out of reagents in a few weeks. Epidemiologists would like to get enough tests for the sick so they can be diagnosed. Opening the red states will just make this virus endemic in those states, and the governors are NOT listening to their hospitals and health departments, period!

Is there a casino open now in the USA? The Dakotas? A reservation somewhere?

If not, what would be the closest country with an open casino?



There have been no closure orders in SD, IA, NE. All of them have casinos. That said, idk if they're open.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

They’re all closed I think, not positive about Nebraska or the convenience store type ones in Dakotas, but anything that could possibly be considered a “real” casino is closed. A few of the Dakota natives were among last open, I think Deadwood had last commercial casinos closed in US at something like March 25th/26th. Iowa has no gatherings over 10 people so that would rule out casinos, effectively have a stay at home order their restrictions are more severe than several states with stay at home orders.

Yes, I think casinos will reopen but I don't think they will be the fun places they were before. So I probably won't go under strict social distancing protocols. What fun is that?

However, as a craps player the idea of tables limited to only three players per side is fantastic.

If there's one thing I hate it's crowded craps tables with players buying in and cashing out while the shooter has the dice; and I hate players making late bets even when the dice are in the air; and the more players the more hands that can get in the way; and the more players the more questions to dealers which slow the game.

And the biggest advantage to having only three players on a side is that there will be fewer piles and stacks of chips to interfere with a clean dice throw.

The flip side of having only three players on each side is that table minimums are likely to increase.

If table minimums are higher it doesn't matter if there's more open space on the layout... because I'm out.

Exactly correct about Iowa. Casino's have been closed by governor since mid March. There is a commons misconception that just because Iowa doesn't have a 'stay at home' order, that the economy is open. It isn't, only essential businesses.
