I can't seem to access the journal online at the moment. I find it troubling that the article quotes casino managers regarding things like filtration systems (which even tobacco-industry-sponsored research showed to be an inadequate approach) without mention of the study's findings regarding such things. Too, it says that nonsmoking areas in the places with structural separation between smoking/nonsmoking areas showed the lowest levels. Does that mean more than that they are the driest fish in the pond? The author didn't tell us.

Clearly, this article was written with a bias toward casino owners and the status quo.
