    New Holiday Inn casino?

    I saw something recently (but can't remember where) that the casino at the Holiday Inn will be reopening soon under new management.

    Has anybody seen or heard anything?

    I read it too.
    It might have been posted in one of the FB groups.

    Not sure that I believe it to be true.

    CPJones, I was thinking the same thing. Also wondering if they will have the poker room back and the bingo (which they played all over the slot machines) and could not gamble while the bingo was going on. The biggest question will be....Smoking??? I guess all the answers will happen on 11/1

    there is no smoking in any of the casinos.

    prior to covid there was a no smoking rule rule that had yet to be implemented.
    then the covid nightmare happened and when Aruba reopened, one of the new rules for casinos was "mask up and do not smoke"
    both of those mandates are still in place.

    Andrea, that is so good to hear. The casino was so small and the ceilings were so low that the smoke just hovered around the room.
