REDDING, Calif. -

On Friday Win River Casino in Shasta County goes smoke-free.    Because the casino is an Native American Indian casino resort, it wasn't required to comply with California state laws about smoke-free workplaces.

The Redding Rancheria decided to make the casino game floor healthier for everyone.  A study found only about 10 percent of the customers actually smoked.

Win River is the first urban casino to ban smoking.
