Default Question about Foxwoods smoking policy

My brother and I are going to Foxwoods (we've never been there) and we're both asthmatic, he is much worse than I am. My question is, does Foxwoods allow people to smoke by the slots, bingo, blackjack tables, restaurants, etc.

Thanks for any advice.

Absolutely. However, there are some smoke-free gambling and BINGO areas.

Both casino's are being forced to increase their smoke free areas. I can't speak about Foxwoods but I know at Mohegan the only game that isn't in a smoke free area is craps. But you shouldn't have a problem at Foxwoods as long as you stay in the designated smoke free areas.

It doesn't matter where you are in either casino...you will smell cigarette smoke! I'm not even old enough to gamble and I have to take a hefty shower once I'm home...it's gross!

I was just at Mohegan last week and smoked right by the penny and 2 cent slots. We didn't see a lot of smoke free areas.

You should go to Twin River in Lincoln, RI. They have many slots and the whole second floor is nonsmoking.

Sounds like someone is hyper sensitive to cigarette smoke! I have been to both casinos in the past year and a half and have not smelled/seen anyone smoking in any of the main gambling areas. JF, you will be fine. Connecticut hyper regulates its casinos so smoking isn't prevalent.

The Rainmaker Casino by the shuttle entrance is smoke free It's all slots. There is also a smoke free poker room in the level below Rainmaker. There are smoke free gaming tables in the Grand Pequot casino. Notice I said tables, not rooms. You can find smoke free restaurants. Basically, in my opinion, you're going to smell smoke and probably be exposed to some smoke as the entire facility is not smoke free. .

I must admit, I can smell a cigarette from twenty miles away; the second I walk into either one of those casino's, I can smell the smoke! I can't stand the smell myself, but don't begrudge others if they wish to kill themselves.
