No smoking is good. Last thing I want is some geriatric bitch puffing away in my face when I check on how my fiance is doing at the slots.

And the other last thing I want is some douche-hat next to me at the Let It Ride table blowing cigarette smoke into my face when he gets upset about his latest 2-7-9 hand.

No comped drinks is no shock. None of the casinos in the area have that.

And if you're drinking at a casino after 2:30, you're probably a degenerate.

No, these are all friggin stupid...

You don't let people get up from a table and/or slot and have to leave the premise for anything...

You want to smoke? You should be allowed to somewhere in the casino...Go out to Vegas and go into any of the top-notch casinos and tell me if you see and/or smell any smoke (unless the dude is right next to you)???

Drinks??? C'mon, the 2:30 curfew is assinine...The non-comps are even worse, but I knew Ohio would never let that fly because they don't allow freed rinks anywhere...Go down to FLA and you get 2 for 1's everywhere for happy hour...This state is just ridiculous when it comes to making rules for it's businesses...

No restaurants or hotel??? I thought Gilby was a smart businessman? Read above^^^You never let a patron walk out of a casino!!!

How are you going to get any whales into this thing without any comps?!?!?!? It's whales that keep these things alive, not Joe-Local-Fat-Ass-Six-Pack...Is Gilby gonna give someone who blows several grand some nice tix to see his BBall team after LeBull leaves???

This thing has failure written all over it before the flop

I didn't say that they were smart economically.

I was saying that I was happy with it because cigarette smoke pisses me off, no free drinks is far from shocking.

How was Gilbert going to get around the Smoke-free Ohio law?

With 4 bars within walking distance of each other on the west side getting around it I would think Gilbert could. But he won't.

He wasn't...

Smoke pisses you off, but it's not legal here anyways so you had nothing to worry about there, Adam...FTR, I don't smoke either, but it's terrible for business (that's been talked to death on here though)...

The non-free drinks is not shocking because it's OHIO...Doesn't make it nada ignorant though...

I know you like to gamble as I do, but this is not the way to do it here...We missed the boat by about 15-16 years...

Ohio makes money hand over fist on smokers' tax dollars, we should atleast be able to smoke in the fuckin building. It's really not that much to ask.

I dont smoke, but I fully support the right for others to. At least give them a section fir cryin out loud. I understand if people dont want to be sitting in Applebee's with some dude chain smoking sitting next to them, but that is why they had smoking sections. Bars, Casinos, and places of the like should at a minimum be allowed to let people smoke. Don't like the smoke find a owner who chose on his own to make their place non-smoking.

Concerning the free drinks, blah, what did you expect. I have been to Casinos in Niagara, Windsor, Detroit, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada to my knowledge only the last two give free drinks. Its nice when they do it, but it was nothing I expected.

Add New Jersey & Biloxi to the comped drink list...

Unless you have competition and a state w/ a brain then, no freebies...

I love hearing how Gilby claims that som many peeps will walk thru the door of this new casino? Who really? A celeb that's passing thru? Joke Noah, when he has a couple days here? Sam Miller, the Figgie's, Peter Lewis??? Puh-lease...

If he decides one day to actually have restaurants inside then the only thing he'll need to serve is pierogies, ribs & pizza
