While the casinos along the South Shore are smoking, they also accommodate non-smokers. Here's what you need to know at each location:
Ameristar Hotel & Casino - Ameristar's hotel has non-smoking floors; guests can request a room on one of those floors when booking. The casino's non-smoking section slot area is in the back on the first deck. The restaurants at Ameristar Casino are also non-smoking.
Horseshoe Casino - When you're on the casino boat you can find a non-smoking baccarat room as well as enjoy a non-smoking table game area and slot machines. Enjoy a smoke-free environment in the Foo Noodle Bar, Village Square Buffet and Jack Binion's Steak House. Horseshoe Casino is also home to The Venue, a special entertainment and event venue. The Venue is non-smoking.
Blue Chip Casino, Hotel & Spa - Options Buffet and Nelson's Deli are 100% non-smoking at Blue Chip while William B's Steakhouse offers a non-smoking section. Guests can also opt for a non-smoking floor at the hotel and during spa visits. The non-smoking slot machine area is in the far right corner when you walk into the main entrance.
During your visit at any of the casinos, please ask an employee to point you in the right direction for the non-smoking areas. If you're the first person at a table, you can also ask the dealer to put up a non-smoking sign while you play; smoking guests will usually find another table nearby.
