I have terrible asthma and have been advised by my physician NOT to go back to the boats until they establish one that is non-smoking. Do any of you fellow gamblers know of any slots in the Shreveport/Bossier area that have a smokefree section?

Hmmm I wonder. My brother is a bartender at one of the casinos, I'll try to ask him and let you know.

Thanks Metroguy. I know other locations in the country have a "non-smoking" section.

In my opinion, gambling without smoking is like football without tackling. Sure you can do it, but more than half of the experience is gone. I understand asthma, my sister has it, but I couldn't imagine gambling in a room that isn't smoke filled.

Unless it has a separate ventilation system, you're no better off. It may not exacerbate your asthma quite as quickly, but all the toxins that can make you condition even worse are still present. It's like having a "non-peeing" section of a swimming pool.
