Rivers Casino Portsmouth has made the decision to change its smoking policy after backlash from visitors during opening week.
Previously, smoking was allowed indoors throughout the entire gaming floor in the main casino. Virginia gaming law does allow smoking in indoor gaming facilities. The updated rules for Rivers Casino will implement separate indoor smoking and non-smoking sections for slot machines and table games.
Rivers Casino Portsmouth is Virginia’s first permanent casino. It opened to the public on Monday, January 23rd. More information for visitors can be found at the Rivers Casino Portsmouth website HERE.
