I just bought my first sample set of Tunica Roadhohse chips. So super new to this but how do people get all these chips from closed casino? Who sells them to the buyers? Would love a breakdown on how all those transactions work.
There are sales on here where they are offered. As well as the classified sections. If ya don’t mind me asking where did you get the roadhouse set. I’ve been looking for 1 rack of 1s
I think it’s a lot more hustling and negotiating and legal work than secrets.I always wondered the same thing. I’ve still heard no real answers...just generalizations or speculations. I’d really like to know too! Maybe Jim can tell his secrets? Living in Oklahoma makes for a lot of casinos...those casinos gotta be dumping chips somewhere at some point.
Yeah I think the biggest challenge is finding the closed casinos. That’s likely where the major hustle is because that’s going to take a lot of time. Information like that doesn’t get advertised and is generally only going to make local news. This is where Jim has the greatest advantage over anyone here trying to do what he does. In regards to legal in states where Jim has purchased before it will probably be easy to buy the chips since there is a precedent.I think it’s a lot more hustling and negotiating and legal work than secrets.
This exactly. Especially the money and investigation part. Finding these places will take lots of time and getting the chips into your hands is going to take a sizable amount of money. Both for legal fees and for the actual purchase.lol conspiracy theorists
Purchasing casino chips is a result of endless investigation, experienced legal teams working with closed casinos and their regulatory bodies, hard work, and money.
This is all news to me! I mean I figured after a few days on here that the chips in circulation on here were from closed down casinos, but I thought to myself... where are they coming from!.. Being up in Canada... I guess we don't have too many casinos up here that have closed over the years? Or am I mistaken? My guess they probably destroy the chips up here if the casino goes under...
I don’t post this lightly because it hurts (I had to sell them). Behold the Palais de Congress!No, it's just that most of the casinos in Canada (at least in my part) have the most gawd-awful, boring designs on their non-clay chips, that pretty much anybody can do better on here with a custom idea of their own, and not expensively. The group buy designs I regularly see here are generally top notch.
Just giving an example of good looking Canadian chips that were resold into the home market after the Casino closed... should have replied to davethesave rather than your reply to him. CheersOkay, okay, the PdC is truly an exception. But since they aren't "available" any more, they don't count as "harvestable".
Any live chips you like (ESPECIALLY $1’s) you should just harvest them when the casino is open. Some folks here like Paris $1’s, so just go to Vegas, sit at a table, and start pocketing the ones in the best shape. Can do the same at WinStar for $1/chip mint Paris $1’s sell here for $3/chip just to give you an idea.The WinStar $1's are kinda nice, wouldn't mind if those ended up on ChipRoom.
Wonder if The River tourney chips are getting replaced too...
Sorry for the derail, but what is that setup?? Reflective table, is that a giant light in the back? Is this a picture of a picture being taken? What's the other angle look like?
Behind the scenes at a pro photo studio with a sheet of black glass, and what's called a "softbox" in the photo world. Its a small light/flash unit that goes into a tent thing that makes nice even light. I'll upload the studio pics to my gallery in order to not further derail this threadSorry for the derail, but what is that setup?? Reflective table, is that a giant light in the back? Is this a picture of a picture being taken? What's the other angle look like?
