Went there as a kid and again when it was a casino. Wish I would have bought a set of chips way back when.

@Marhault used to frequent the boat reguarly, I loved hearing his old stories. Love the ship, and the set, truly what sunk me head first into chipping!

They're not as cheap as they were when they first hit the market but by most standards unless you're going for Mint chips they're very affordable to put together a set. It's very nostalgic for me personally.

The first casino I ever went to. Still have a soft spot for it. One of the best casino sets of all time as well.
I really find it amazing how many people visited this boat. For me it was a local attraction. Was it that for everyone else or were you on a trip of some type and just stopped in or did you come just to visit the casino? I also wonder how many of you degenerates I personally ran into and probably lost money to over the years lol.

Being from southern Missouri, it was about the closest casino at that time. When we’d travel to the Lou, we’d make a quick run inside. I can promise you never lost a penny to me!
