East St. Louis casino blames smoke ban for revenue decline

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) – The Casino Queen in East St. Louis is reporting that its business is down, and executives are blaming Illinois’ smoking ban.

Initially, the $92 million new casino,which opened last summer, saw revenues increase from the smaller boat,but business has declined since January 1st when the state’s ban on smoking in public places took effect.

Casino manager tom Monaghan says the drop in business has been devastating. He says because of the smoking ban, he fears gamblers are going to new nearby competing casinos across the river in Missouri, where gamblers still can smoke.
