I've added relevant labels to the map. As you can see, The Crazy Moose is a lot closer and has Ultimate Texas Hold'em. Further down the road (actually a steep hill) is 220th St. Bingo. Bingo has been one of my favorite gambling activities. I started playing in 2002 (I was 23 years old).


Bringing back "good" memories for me.

Aren't those both Washington Gold chains? I was flat-bet at Red Dragon, and I thought I was made at all Washington Gold casinos. They would remind me "no blackjack" as I walked up to the table at Club Hollywood, which was my first "home" casino and where I refined a lot of my skills.

Never backed off at Crazy Moose, but I was crazy to be playing their crappy 8 deck, $100 max game. I once lost a few big bets (I think I was spreading to 2 hands of $75) at the end of a session to end about $300 down. The dealer was very much aware what I was doing and was enjoying himself. He had some mean-spirited words about even if you're counting it doesn't guarantee a win or something like that. A fact I am WELL aware of :). I don't think I ever won there in a a few visits; maybe if I had they would have done something.

Yes they are Washington Gold chains. I'm no AP, so the $100 max didn't bother me. One time a player wanted them to raise the max to $300. They went and got the $25-300 sign out and grandfathered us in at the $3 min.

City: Bow
Casino: Skagit Valley Casino Resort

This is another one that was a complete blur. I probably picked it up on the way to Vancouver. The website makes no mention of craps, so in that case I most likely bought in at roulette for $11 or $21 and put it all on one outside bet.

The business is owned by the Upper Skagit Indian Tribe. I did not see any interesting info about the tribe in google. As for the Skagit Valley area there is a Tulip festival in April. If anyone is planning a trip to the area April may be a good time to go see some tulips.

As for the chip, there's no name or city, only their logo.

That is an interesting chip, I can't say I can think of another chip off the top of my head that doesn't have a casino name or location on the chip. Doc/rdw can you think of any. I have chips with no mention of the location but none without naming the casino.

Cool addition to the thread Konbu!

PokerGrinder has pointed out that I failed to include in the thread index the Casino de Charlevoix chip that I posted last September. I have now added that one plus Konbu's Skagit Valley chip to the list.

Anyone/everyone, please let me know of other such index omissions that you notice beyond a day or three after the chip is posted. Sometimes, when I am either lazy or traveling, I don't get around to updating the index right away. It is way too difficult to edit those posts on my phone. We now have 914 chips included in the index, and an unknown number that slipped by unrecorded.

State: Washington
City: Tulalip
Casino: Quil Ceda Creek Casino

My impression of this place is blurry as well, but I do remember the copious amount of smoke. I was in and out in 10 minutes but still reeked of cigarettes when I got out. You know how there are deep sea creatures that live off of the sulfur and heat vents in the sea floor? Well, any creatures that survive on nicotine/tar/cigarette fume will thrive and prosper here. I have vague memories of letting my $10 column bet ride twice for a nice $80 win (minus $10 tip) but I could have just been hallucinating, I really don't remember.

This business is near Tulalip Casino, and are both owned by the Tulalip Tribes.

As for the chip, there's some small splotches in the charcoal background, but does not appear to be any specific graphic or design.

I just got my QCC chips. I'll post my 50¢ chip when I get home Tuesday morning. Yes that is one of the smokiest casinos that I had been in.

Nice post Konbu, I really like the style of the big "Q" on the chip. I hate smokey casinos, always cuts my trip to the casino short.
