The smoke is clearing at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida as the casino opened a new non-smoking gaming area last week.

The room features more than 300 new machines. The additional 10,080 square-feet of gaming space make Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the largest casino in Florida.

The new smoke free rooms are a welcome change for people who frequent the Hard Rock, but think the smoke is a drag.

"It’s hazy, you have breathing problems, it stays in your clothes and it’s just nasty," said Hard Rock customer Janice Ellis.

The new, non-smoking gaming area features nickel, dime, quarter and multi-denomination games like: Cleopatra, Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Gold, Double Diamond, Triple Diamond, Snow Globes, Wild For Dolphins, Shake your Booty, Monopoly, African Treasure, Money in the Bank, Love & War, Sun & Moon, Little Green Men, and Denver Duck.

"I lived in (Las) Vegas and this is just as good as any poker room I’ve ever seen," said Anthony Tollentino.

The new room also features an ATM, Redemption Machines and its own Players Club.
