aTotal smoking (S) and/or nonsmoking (NS) capacity estimated assuming maximum of 6 patrons per game table, 10 patrons per poker table, and 1 patron per slot machine. The number of slots, table games, and poker tables were determined by our on-site (firsthand) observations in the present study.
bMain Area capacity refers to smoking (S) low-stakes slot machines and table games (i.e., excluding poker tables and high stakes slots). The Main Area gaming capacity (low stakes slots + tables) is a quantity used in the present work to calculate relative occupancy between nonsmoking and smoking areas. The occupancy for non-main smoking areas (poker or high-stakes slots/tables) can be calculated by subtracting the Main Area capacity from the Total capacity.
cExcept for Casino I, which had 10 table games, nonsmoking capacity refers to the number of slot machines in nonsmoking areas.
