The only chip I have from a casino no longer in operation is a $5 chip from the Northern Belle Riverboat that was used as an overflow from Casino Windsor just after the temporary casino opened. The NB was closed and moved when the permanent casino opened. 2 things I'd like to know, the value of the chip which I believe is around face value and the other is whatever happened to the Northern Belle. I have searched and found no info on where it went.
Also, I am not a collector so if anyone is interested in the chip for their collection, PM me.
Sorry my chip guide is only for U.S. casinos, So it has nothing that might help :(
These seven chip designs include:

What's this? Not a single chip approved with a denomination on it? Doesn't sound too good for having chips available as souvenirs on my next trip. At least it appears as if they will be willing to offer someone some promo and match play chips.
i think you said somewhere that you prefer to only collect chips of casinos you have visited.
i am not sure if you mean that you only collect chips that you have actually procured in person.
if it is the former, perhaps you could visit the casino while you are out there,
and then have someone mail you the chip when it is released.
or would this violate your collection protocol?
Let me disabuse you of that notion. CaliMont Station serves dishwater coffee. You can get a decent cup at the Dunkin' Donuts at Fremont for $2.00+tax. Lappert's Ice Cream in the Cal has very good ice cream from Hawaii, and Masaladas (deep fried dough balls). Their coffee? Terrible. I guess Hawaiians are used to inferior coffee, or they export all their good beans.Quote: Nareed
I had the notion that with a largely Hawaiian cleintele, and restaurants serving Hawaiian food, they'd ahve some half-decent Kona (which at half*decent it would be pretty good still).
Interesting, the other Boyd properties in town have coffee makers, but not the ones downtown.
Oh, and to keep this thread on topic: Doc, you may want to ask NicksGamingStuff about D chips. You do know, he deals there, right? (I think this is public information by now).
GPI, for one, offers four sizes:
