The best one up to now.
I gave it a 5 having seen the rest; it could have been a 4 if I hadn't seen them.

This one is an outlier for me. It's really just the casino's logo, a color matched denom, on a plain white background. Why would it be good at all.

But it just looks so good and is well executed -- the logo is top notch, the font used for the denom is cool, and the shaped inlay in the upper denoms set it off compared to the other denoms, so I'm giving points for the use of a shaped inlays here.

Solid 4.

I like the color matching denoms but feel like there's too much unused white space

The casino logo is impossible to identify, but it almost matches the font, which is merely difficult to read. Where is this casino?
And the concept of color matched denoms is nice, but a splashed pot with all different denom colors is bad.

I think it's a clean design with subtle color-matching, but would have been a slightly better design had it included "Joliet, IL" text (relieving some of the excess white space and 'incomplete' design issues)...... but having actually been there, I think nobody really wants to claim it.
