Win River Casino became the first casino in California to ban smoking last March, but on Monday management announced a few changes to the policy.

Citing customer feedback Win River management told Action News Now they have decided to allow smoking on about 30 percent of the gaming floor. The poker rooms, event centers, eateries and the hotel will remain smoke free.

Casino officials say the decision to allow smoking was strictly business based.

Last March, the casino said a study determined that only 10 percent of their clientele smoked on the gaming floor.
