I know I've been creating threads right and left since I returned from Europe, but this one isn't another analysis of a side bet you'll never see, much less bet on. This one is my blog entry on the Casinos in Barcelona, Zurich, and Liechtenstein.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments. If you just want to correct my awful grammar, I would appreciate the corrections sent by PM, so I don't look like an illiterate high school dropout in public.

Regarding the section on Paris, I would be interested to know if anyone can confirm the existence of any casino in that city.

Not that anyone asked, but of the three cities, I liked Barcelona the best. It is already becoming so overrun with tourists that there is a ban on building new hotels. Maybe the secret is already out of the bag, but I would visit Barcelona while you can still enjoy the best food in Europe, at least in my opinion, at very low prices. I predict it will become the next Paris soon and prices will double or triple. Get there before everyone is in on the secret.

The question for the poll is what is your favorite country in Europe? Only one vote allowed this time.

Very enjoyable write up as always Mike. You go to so many amazing casinos, it drives me nuts that you donít collect chips lol. Iíve sadly never been to Europe but I hope to remedy that situation this fall.

I do collect chips. My specialty is $8 Chinese new year chips. Also, I have about 20-30 vintage Vegas chips. I also try to get one from every foreign casino I visit, including the four casinos mentioned in this blog entry. I'm not sure if they count, but I've also got at least 100 brothel chips. Many duplicates, if anyone is interested.

Mike I donít know if youíre following my TR thread but I found a game called Niu Niu in Cambodia. I was wondering if youíd ever heard of it. Itís a cross between pai gow poker and baccarat. I learned it really easily.

I enjoyed Iceland the most. So, since my choice is not possible to vote for, i will abstain.

So... Uh... What ARE brothel chips? Looking online, most places are just selling them with minimal explanation.
