Hi all- the edited 'not very close at all' comment is what I was just kidding about. Tommy was indeed very close but not correct.

Good effort Ski_ex5 and also very close, but still no correct answer!

Since there is no winner yet- carefully note the following: Answer must have the full info for each of the chips... casino, city, state, etc.

I hope you ship overseas, because I think I got the right answer :)
well, if still one error (and we both know which), I'll say it is very hard to tell, beacause they got the same spots !

Top Row - Barrel 3 = Benny's $100, Riverside Inn, Tukwila, Washington

Don- you had the closest answer so far.... almost, but still not correct!


"if still one error (and we both know which), I'll say it is very hard to tell, beacause they got the same spots !"

I didn't really think about this when I took the picture, but it definitely gave the contest a bit of a challenge!

I know of 3 that could be another chip since they have the same edge spots. The one though I can sort of the see the inlay so I know what I said for that one was correct. It's them other two. :) Good luck to the next person.

Nico -

djmarc's original post stated:
"Answer must have exact name of casino & primary/secondary information where appropriate."

His later reply stated:
"Answer must have the full info for each of the chips... casino, city, state, etc."

Based on the original post (in particular, the words "where appropriate"), I assumed that we only needed to post enough information about each chip in order to distinguish it from other similar chips (for instance, "Casino Aztar Evansville" vs. "Casino Aztar Caruthersville").

However, based on the later reply (in particular, the words "must have the full info"), which is much more specific, I'd guess that your answers may have only been incorrect because of the order of the casino name, city, and state.

For example, your answers:
- Benny's $100, Riverside Inn, Tukwila, Washington
- Casino Aztar Primary $100s Missouri Caruthersville

Perhaps should have been something like the following to have been considered correct:
- Benny's Riverside Inn in Tukwila, Washington - primary $100
- Casino Aztar in Caruthersville, Missouri - primary $100

I will say that no one has had the correct combination of chips so far.... no answers were incorrect solely because of the order of the casino name, etc.

Oh wow... I stand corrected - again! My apologies djmarc & Nico! :eek:

Well, of the fourteen different chips in the photo, I own ten of them (eight in large sets), so I sure hope that leaves only four on which I could be wrong! Of those four, I think one is an easy slam dunk. :confused:

So...

1. I'm 99% certain Tommy's PNY guess was incorrect (wrong sequence of colors in the edge spots), so I'm relatively confident with my Grand Victoria primary guess.

2. Multiple Matsui chips have the same spot design, but I think only the Zen and Blue Sands chips are fairly available. Since the black Blue Sands ship is a $20 denom (i.e. NOT $100 or other "high" denom), I'm still confident of my Zen guess.

3. That leaves the Benny's/Mesquite Star choice, which is pretty much a toss up, since both chips have identical or near identical colors and edge spot design.

Conclusion: If I were an unscrupulous player, I'd create a new PCF account, and post a "new" guess identical to my original, but with "Mesquite Star" in place of "Benny's Riverside Casino".

<sigh> Actually, I probably AM a pretty unscrupulous player, but I'm just too LAZY to create another PCF account! :rolleyes:

Those Terrible's MT $100s could be UB chips.
One of those Aztars could be Ritz Carlton chips. (but you can see the inlay so I'm sure they are what I said they were.)
Those Terrible's St Jo $100 could also be another chip.

Even without hearing from djmarc, I realize that I'm wrong again. a) I spotted a stupid numbering mistake on my original list, and b) I think perhaps the first barrel of black/purple/lavender chips are Mesquite Star, and the half barrel are Benny's.

So, here's my revised, albeit disqualified, list:

First row:
1. Casino Aztar Evansville secondary $100
2. Casino Aztar Evansville primary $100
3. Mesquite Star $100
4. Casino Aztar Caruthersville primary $100 (top), and Benny's Riverside Inn $100 (bottom)
5. Casino Aztar Caruthersville primary $100

Second row:
1. Empress Joliet primary $100
2. Empress Joliet secondary $100
3. Empress Joliet secondary $100
4. Matsui Zen $100 (top), and Grand Victoria primary $100 (bottom)
5. Casino Aztar Evansville primary $500 (top), and Casino Aztar Evansville secondary $500 (bottom)

Third row:
1. Terrible's St. Jo primary $100
2. Terrible's La Grange primary $100
3. Terrible's La Grange primary $100
4. Terrible's La Grange primary $500
5. Empress Joliet secondary $500

I'm pretty sure Matsui zen is $100 denom.
I'm also pretty sure knowing which error I've done.
I don t think there are any UB chips.
This contest is the hardest I've ever played !

Yes! We have a winner... Good job Jackstraw!

I suppose the Mesquite Star $100s could be identified as Secondary (I think!), but everything else in the answer is correct so I won't have people continue to guess & try to add only that info.

Tommy's initial answer was indeed very close - only the PNY answer was incorrect. They are Grand Victoria chips.

Thanks to everyone for participating. Jack- send me a PM and let me know if you want a Flamingo $1 or Rivers .25 chip.
