Oh heads up GWAE there are two chips to collect in Muckleshoot. Two separate casinos using two separate sets of chips, Muckleshoot 1 and 2.

Thank you, I did read that last night on your post when you added them on here

How bad is traffic in Seattle in the evening. I am still putting my plan together but I was thinking of going (this is off the top of my head looking at google maps, list is at home)

air port landing at 4.
tukwila
renton
take the 405 to the north (avoiding Seattle traffic?)
Mountlake
Shoreline
back through seattle at 10-11ish (no idea on time as I havent fully mapped it but thats my guess)
Burien
Des Moines
Hotel around midnight-1am near tacoma.
After meeting if time, hit the ones near tacoma and back to airport by 2.

Is that a little aggressive?

It really depends on if you hit traffic. Obviously rush hour will slow your progress so I would try to be doing very little driving around that time.

That's why I was thinking 405 might be better since it is away from the city.

The one thing that I can not determine is how long I will be in each casino. I dont have the same rule as some of you where I have to wager the $1, I just have to get it from the casino. Normally when there is a big six or craps table it is easy to do. On these tiny casinos it might be a little tougher, not sure if there will be a good spot to just pick up a chip. If I have to sit down and play or anything then I won't be able to hit as many.

I have 32 places on my list. Drive time with no traffic is 3 hours. Even if I spend 10 minutes at each that is 5 hours plus 3 for driving. If I get in rental car at 5pm then that puts me back to my hotel at 1am and that is no traffic, not getting lost, and only spending 10 min at each. Depending on parking and walking from lot that may be way under estimated. If I drop the northern casinos it will only cut out 8 from my list but will cut an hour of drive time. Looking at the current traffic delays it looks like both sides are heavy with Bellevue and Seattle areas having some red spots on the map.

I just read your Roxys review and it made me laugh that you had a hard time cashing out because the cashier kept stepping away. I am guessing at places like this it is going to take me longer to get the chip and I might actually have to play.

Ten minutes with no play still might be pushing it at some of these places. I wish you good luck.

I would do the following:
Land at 4PM
Burien
Tukwila
Des Moines
South to Muckleshoot (Dinner options are decent, BSB is good and relatively fast)
South to Emerald Queen
North to Shoreline using I-5 (Seattle traffic should have cleared by then)
Head Northwest to Silver Dollar Mill Creek
I-405 South to Casino Caribbean in Kirkland (they have a Poker Room & Casino, but think they share chips?)
I-405 South to I-90 East to hit Snoqualmie
I-90 West to I-405 South
Renton
Back to Airport Hotel

If your meeting is in Tacoma, Emerald Queen is right there at Exit 136 I believe. Maybe you don't have to get that far south the day you land if you can hit it post meeting (will depend a bit on what Google Maps tells you drive north looks like at the time). You can also hit Seatac Silver Dollar on the way back to airport.

Casino Caribbean poker room uses different chips than its casino tables. Collect both while there.

I am so pissed. Spent a lot of time the last 2 days trying to figure out my route. The reason I am going to this area is to meet a new client. Today this client called and setup a dinner meeting with me, him, and 2 of his friends that may need my service. Now I have to spend $300 on a dinner and cut my chip collecting short. We have not set the dinner spot yet so I am thinking about suggesting a place that would fit on my path. Maybe 7pm near Tukwila if there are restaurants near there.

Here was my planned route
Silver Dollar Seatac
Wizards Casino
Macau Casino Tukwila
Riverside
Fortune Tukwila
Great American Tukwila
Freddies Club of Renton
Fortune Renton
Silver Dollar Renton
Great American Kent
Emerald Downs Auburn
Iron Horse
Mucklshoot 1 and 2
Freddies of Fife
Emerald Queen
Great American Lakewood
Macau Lakewood
Palace
Chips Casino
