The virus travels on spittle and other spewed air particles so the plastic shields work in a similar way to face masks, blocking a person from sending you his virus through the air.

The virus itself is not truly airborne.

The entire point of six feet social distancing is because of that aspect

I wanted to ask a couple of things.

1) Smoking bans or not?
2) Are they giving masks out or not?
3) How is seating in places like the coffee shop at the Orleans or TGIF at Gold Coast or other examples? Are they abiding by half capacity or less or not really?



1. Unfortunately, not.
2. I was offered one somewhere, I think the Wynn, but I didn't need it. I would expect that to be an optional thing per the casino.
3. Seems to me everybody took out half their tables already. I like it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think one has to look at the fine print on the gaming control “guidelines”. It seems not all the changes are mandated...but merely suggested. Suggested tells me the casino can do whatever the hell they want based on player demand.

There were supposed to be strict adherence numbers on the tables....but slots wasn’t really clear. While they removed seats at slots, I noticed all the machines were still on and playable at my local casino, which tells me you could get 4 players playing a bank of 4 machines (2 standing and 2 sitting)...or people dragging over a chair and sitting. I’m not sure how they are handling that.

Without clear cut rules...I expect very little adherence to what gaming control mandates. Player demand ($$) will drive what is ignored as far as guidelines go.

When Planet Hollywood re-opens, I think they will be nonsmoking. 1st on the strip to go smokeless.


That was originally reported and I think they had literature printed up saying no smoking....but Planet Hollywood reversed that decision in about 24 hours. I suspect a few people called their casino hosts and had the change dumped.

It seems like casinos are trying to minimize customers touching the cards on blackjack. Is it the same procedure for Ultimate Holden, Let it Ride, 3CP, and Mississippi Stud where they deal face up?

regarding smoking: First day, Thursday at The D, I saw a woman playing a machine wearing a mask. She had cut a dime size hole in the mask and a cigarette was dangling. I think I may have mumbled idiot to myself.

Silverton is giving out masks to those that want one. At least one other place was doing likewise, but cant remember who right now.

Also at Silverton today, I actually saw several employees wiping down machines. First I have seen that.

I don't know if any casino is adhering to the 50% occupancy rule. At least I haven't seen any people waiting to get in.



If she MUST smoke, i possibly would consider her smarter.

But when she wasn't smoking, she should have a regular mask.

isn't it a little bit difficult to smoke while wearing a mask?
especially if you're smoking a cigar........................................................................................... 😃


It is. But if he/she put on a regular mask when she didn't want to smoke, he/she might be "smarter". I was addicted to nicotine once. That's pretty tough to break too. A very big reason why casinos don't want to ban smoking. The addictions are likely correlated.

Again. Believe it when I see it. Most things from Vital Vegas are rumors that do NOT come true. On my forum we are infracting posts linked to him now due to their general lack of accuracy.

The Planet Hollywood rumor was discredited by CET themselves.

Also Vital Vegas is the only one reporting Park MGM might go non-smoking. Hmmmm...
