  • Sky City ready for smoke ban

    Hi all,

    This is an interesting development in NZ. We have banned smoking in pubs, restaurants and casinos in Aus as well.

The decrease in $$ from the gaming companies is due to the amount of people not going to play the machines anymore because they can’t smoke.

    A law banning smoking in pubs, restaurants and casinos is expected to choke Sky City's growth next year, but analysts say it is well prepared to offset the impact.
