According to the NVGCB, the name on the license is "Arizona Charlie's Boulder." So that is what it should say on the chips.
Uh, oh. Doc ... better put ACB on your list for next trip
Excellent contribution, teddys! I am confident that my compulsions will grow strong enough that I have to go back out there for another souvenir when I am in town for WoVCon][. I have added it to my list along with Margaritaville, Las Vegas Hotel, and D. I guess that makes one new casino (within Flamingo) and three name changes (if the D is fully implemented by then).
FrGamble, I'm glad you like the thread. Please continue to join the discussions.
As I stated when I posted the "East" chip this morning, I don't really know about chip manufacturing processes. I think that "clay" is a bit of a misnomer for modern chips, or at least the modern ones are different from the very old "clay" chips. I don't really know what "plastic" means in this context. I think there are several manufacturing processes and materials in use. I have a couple of chips in my collection that are from real casinos, but the chips seem to be of even lower quality than the home-use chips I bought at a local discount store.
I definitely prefer the "clay" chips that have some surface texture and leave the impression of being of cast ceramic (somewhat like a flowerpot) instead of the slick-surfaced chips that I would consider "plasticky." As an example, I like the Arizona Charlie's Decatur chip that I posted better than the Arizona Charlie's East chip. On the other hand, I kinda like look of the chips with a metallic center insert, and I'm not sure that any of the chips in my collection have both the metallic insert and the "clay" feel. I have them all back under glass right now, so it's a little awkward to check out the feel of the chips.
