When the pandemic ended and casinos reopened in 2020, most of them prohibited smoking. But once the masks came off the cigarettes came back out. Lamont White, a dealer at the Borgata casino in Atlantic City, joined other dealers in objecting to the policy and formed CEASE, or Casino Employees Against Smoking Effects. The effort may pay off in New Jersey as the leading politicians in New Jersey will vote on a bill to establish a full smoking ban in all casinos in the state. Meanwhile, CEASE has spread to many other states where smoking is still permitted. White explains the motivations behind the movement and the hypocrisy of casino executives who can’t even defend the policy. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros on the exhibit floor at G2E in October in Las Vegas.
