Dang. I didn't see the "ot" comment until it was too late to reasonably suspend Doc. Shucky darn! (kidding PG)

Doc - I picked up a chip from the casino formerly known as SLS but now back to Sahara. I don't recall if it has already been posted, but I didn't see it amongst the several versions in the index link.

Has it already been presented?

Initially I (think that I) misread your post. I thought you had just picked up an SLS chip and you didn't think it had been posted yet. (My bad.) If you were really asking whether this thread has a chip from the "new" Sahara, then I agree with PG. I have not yet been to Las Vegas since the new place opened but plan to get such a chip on my next visit.

Just a comment out of my confusion/amusement: my common reference site, the Chip Guide from the Museum of Gaming history, seems to claim that both the SLS and the "Sahara (formerly the SLS)" are both now open for business. It also claims that the new Sahara opened on 10/1/19 but that the chips were issued on 10/21/19. They do offer an explanatory note that it took several months (September/October) to implement the name change.

Ayecarumba, since you have such a new chip, I invite you to make the official Casino Chip of the Day post. In addition to the chip image, tell as much of the story as you care to. I'm looking forward to it. After that, I'll have to figure out how to handle that post in the thread index. Suggestions?

Fishy like your claim of sobriety? You know we all read your trip reports, right? :-)

A bunch of those are SJM casinos and use the same chips.
