It has been a non-smoking casino since July 2003, and the former smoking lounges were closed in May 2006 with the passing of a new provincial law. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the playing areas. The casino also contains four restaurants, four bars, a cabaret, and meeting and banquet facilities. The casino is somewhat unconventional as there are windows in many places, and low ceilings. Since 1997, the casino is open day and night, and currently welcomes some 17,800 visitors a day.
