Thought it would be an interesting exercise to see if I could work out what were my favorite casino chips using the following restrictions:

  • Each base general color/shade group can only be used once
  • Each spot pattern can only be used once (spot colors can be reused)
  • Each casino can only be used once
  • Fractional - $500 must be represented; Snappers optional
  • No fantasy sets/fictitious casinos allowed
Here's mine...

Fractional - Blue Chip $2.5
$1 - Casablanca
$2.50 - NYNY (looks way brigher in person than in the picture)
$5 - Terrible's St. Joes Primary
$20/$25 - Emerald Princess HHR
$100 - Dunes 1989 Issue
$500 - Harbor Lights

My biggest challenge was the $5. The first one that came to mind was the PCA secondary, but that spot pattern is already represented with the Dunes chip. There's lots of great hundos out there, too, but the shaped inlay, custom mold, and colors set the Dunes apart for me.

The Four Queens millennium snapper would have easily taken it if not for the fact that the giant inlay covers the spots.

Let me know what yours are!

Really hard to do but I'll try

25¢ - Golden Gate hotstamps. Love this plain mustard yellow color.

$1 - Paris $1 new version. Loving this chip to at the moment

$5 - Terribles MT sec. This was really hard. Some great chips to choose from but I really like the color combo. If it was THC I'd be broke.

$25 - PCA sec. Great colors.

$100 - MGM fight night hundos. Beautiful.

$500 - PNY $500 (sec?) beautiful shade of purple.

This requires a couple of beers first. And some thinking.

Olivia's 1, but also like Paris casino's 1, but not a poker room chip.
Tie Binions Cincinnati 2 and Olivia's gold $2 chip.
Old Bellagio/Mirage 5
PNY primary 25 but I don't like green chips
Too many hundos out there that I love, Fabulous Eddies with that lighter blue and gold in 8V pattern comes to mind. Also love the current Aria 100.
500 Empress 8V
PNY 1000 with white/gold (secondary?)

Basically any 8V pattern or anything with Paulson gold in it rocks. There are some 25c fracs out there that are gold that are killer for a solid chip.

Puggy, I think you meant to put my avatar in there. Somehow you got things mixed up and put the Bellagio and Aria flags on your list. :D
