    I think this is opening up 29th this month. They have a poker room and I expect they will have new chips.

    Anyone planning to head there to check it out? Anyone have any idea on what type of chips they will use?

    All I know is that the rake in Vancouver is HORRENDOUS. They rake $9 + $1 per hand for PLO games, and $7 + $1 for any other game. I'm curious as to what Parq's rake will be, as well as their chips of course :)

    As a local this really pisses me off. I feel like this is so typically Canadian to just not bother with designing nice chips. Cascades casino in Langley also has like the most bland chips. C'mon guys take some direction from Vegas which had great looking chips like 20-30 years ago already!

    Quick trip report since I'm sitting here currently. Surprised to see only six poker tables. Waitlist was 20+ for 1/3 and 15+ for 1/2 PLO. Played craps instead. Made $9. That's all.

    Parq chip design = soulless. Even I can do better than that.
