Silver Sevens will be a new name adopted for marketing purposes.
Corporate entity remains Affinity Gaming but casino will be Silver Sevens with a formal sign unveiling scheduled for July 7, 2013.

I never did understand why someone would want the word "terrible" associated with their place of business.

Heck, neither did I but back when Herbst Gaming owned it someone must have thought it was a good name. Originally started as a truck stop and a route for slot machines.

We discussed this briefly a few days ago in the Casino Chip of the Day thread, with the idea that someday there will potentially be another set of chips (with the new name of the casino) available to collectors. No new chips have yet been listed in the NGC Chip and Token Report.

Herbst Gaming lost it to the bond holders in bankruptcy. Affinity still owns it and is renaming it Silver Sevens.

"Terrible" was a well known local in Las Vegas. Outside of the valley, not so much.

About 5 years ago I forgot about March madness. Everyplace was booked. So I had to take a blind offer on Priceline. Josie was not happy when I told her we would be staying at TERRIBLES.

Terrible's still runs about 100 gas / convenience stores and most of them offer slot machines.
