Becky, the data is from the Casino VIP special cruises. They run them several times a year. Most of the slot players accumulate over 50,000 points in a two year period. The table players including your favorite blackjack play a much higer amount then you had stated you played in another forum comment. I do agree that most of the players are older than you which is probably why more smoke. The smoking slots are always full. During those cruises they will start converting the empty non smoking tables over to smoking. My guess is at least 65% of the high rollers are smokers. However I will do some counting on the next one and let you know.
