I just read on the chip board that someone talked to a higher up at Wind Creek/sands and they will be changing the chips some time in October so I have to decide if I’ll make the trip out there in September. It’s probably dependent on finding a good flight deal/car deal.

The denomination is maroon and I see that on my picture I posted as well.

On my screen, I can see some reddish tone on the 2nd and 3rd photos (the Cordova chip), but the denomination on the Parkwest Casino Lotus chip definitely comes through as black.

Well like I said those two chips are identical. On my iPhone the Lotus denomination looks dark red. Try comparing the colour to the black name, very different.

State: California
City: Rancho Cordova
Casino: Parkwest Casino Cordova


Today's chip of the day is from Parkwest Casino Cordova in Rancho Cordova, California. This is the re-branding of Cordova Casino, no date on the new name. The casino has 11 table games in 2 small rooms. I played $5 BJ with the most miserable dealer I have dealt with in a long time. She didn't want to talk, smile or fake interest in me or her job. Oh well, I won $20 and surprise surprise didn't tip her for her lovely personality.

The chip is identical to yesterday's with the only difference being that it says Cordova instead of Lotus. The chip is grey with 6 red/blue/red edge inserts. The middle ring has the casino name in black and the denomination in red.

Doc I personally would list these three in the index as:
Parkwest Lotus
Parkwest Cordova
Parkwest Lodi

Without any brackets, just my 2 Canadian cents.

Index updated/revised as suggested.

Do Canadians still use cents?

Doc, are you asking if Canadians are completely cents-less?

Cents yes, pennies no.

Another reason why Canada is better than the US.

State: California
City: Stockton
Casino: Westlane Card Room


Today's chip of the day is from Westlane Card Room in Stockton, California. This one is an interesting situation. Kings Card Club opened in 2015, MoGH has it listed as closing in 2018 when it was re-named Westland Card Room. The problem with this is I visited and Kings is still there, but so is Westlane. There is one building with two gambling rooms divided by a third room that is the bar/restaurant. The first room is Westlane and houses the BJ, baccarat, one carnival poker game and a Texas Holdem table. Each side uses only the chips from their side although I am sure it wouldn't be hard to bet the wrong chips as they are almost identical. I played a few hands of BJ at a full table and walked away up $4.

The chip is a blue (most likely) Chipco with no edge inserts. There are 4 "$1" around the outer part of the chip. The centre inlay is black with a gold ring around it. I have always called these non inlays on Chipcos inlays, is there a better word for it? The casino name is written in white. The logo consists of a yellow "W" and the four suits in a half circle around the "W".

I used to play this area, but it was 25 years ago and my memory is fading. Did the place in Rancho Cordova used to be called the Antique Rose? Or am I mixed up?

Suddenly there are "parkwests" all over the place. At least six off the top of my head. Boy you better know they must have been squeaky clean to get approved for all those takeovers. Or some very good friends in Sacramento.
