SJM CASINO STARTS TRIALING SMOKING ROOMS Macau Daily Times
SJM Director, Angela Leong said that SJM has already set up a smoking room in the Casino Crystal Palace. “We are constantly looking to the future and have thus started trialing [a smoking room]. We will have to continue with the test over a longer period of time to see if it will help improve results of air quality tests in the main area.” She promised that they will continue to install smoking rooms in their other casinos.
Meanwhile, the Director has revealed that there will be a wide range of facilities in the future Jai Alai casino. “We will not focus on merely offering a casino. We will have a shopping mall, some art-related elements, as well as spaces to engage Macau’s food culture. We hope that some of Macau’s distinct culinary culture can be added to the venture and that some small and medium level businesses can move into Jai Alai to bring in some more characteristics of Macau…We will also include some traditional gambling elements”, said Leong. She hinted that since this project is not gaming oriented, it will not be that closely associated with the Casino Oceanus that is located next-door."
