Torghatten,

If you format your posts in the official "Casino Chip of the Day" format, Doc will update the index at the beginning of this thread and your contribution will be added to this nice curated and indexed collection of images. I've found it fun to contribute in this way and read the comments from other collectors. Only one post from each casino qualifies as an "official" post. I think all the chips you posted recently in this thread qualify.

Las Vegas Part 4

Apologies for the long delay since part 3 as I work through my Vegas chips. All my Vegas casinos have already been represented, but I have a few chips that I don't think have yet had their images posted.

Harrah's
I think Harrah's has a display near the cashier with many of the chips they've issued over the years, though maybe it was Flamingo. It would be nice to own such a display for every long-lived casino. RDW posted my $5, and Doc posted a $1. Here is another $1 and a $2.50. The 2.50 chip is actually a vibrant pink, not white as my scan here depicts.


Hooters
DJTeddyBeary posted my $1 chip, but the direct image was removed by an admin and only a link remains. Here is mine, same notes that this differs from Doc's with a Paulson's logo next to the denomination (not sure if I've seen that before) and the front and back are the same. I also have a $5 with a different model than RDW posted.


Imperial Palace
I nearly skipped this chip thinking Doc posted it, but after reading his post he invited others to post similar chips so we could try to identify differences. It didn't take long to notice mine is indeed different, with a Paulson's logo next to the denomination. I hadn't noticed this on Paulson's chips until looking at the Hooters chip above, and here it is again.


Las Vegas Club
RDW posted my $5


Linq
$1 chip posted by ChipmanSpiff with official CCotD entry, here is a $5


Luxor
Doc posted a $1 chip from Luxor, and RDW posted my $5. Here is my $1 chip with smaller inlay than Doc's

Harrahs does indeed have all their $5 chips framed by the cage in the table games area.

Las Vegas Part 3

Flamingo
...
RDW posted a $5 chip Here are a few more:

...



As I looked up previous Mandalay Bay images, I noticed that Doc created a separate entry for Margaritaville and RDW posted my $5 chip as a follow-up.

I make this error just to make Doc's life more complicated in links to my follow up posts :) Just kidding of course, there are more important ways to spend ones days than endless hours updating old posts to link to mine.

Las Vegas Part 5

Mandalay Bay
As usual, Doc posted the $1 and both zippyboy and RDW posted the normal $5 chips in the following two posts. Here is the small inlay version of the $1:


I've found favorable conditions in the Mandalay Bay poker room, or perhaps I was just lucky. This leads to extravagant chip purchases so I got a few $5 chips here. Here are 5 that RDW didn't post, 4 of which are different on the front and back:




MGM Grand
Doc's $1 in his original post and RDW's $5 soon after have large inlays. Here are small inlay chips:


Mirage
Once again Doc posted the $1 chip I have and RDW posted my $5 two posts later. Unlike some places, the poker room was willing to sell me a rake chip:


Monte Carlo
Doc posted my $1, but RDW and zippyboy posted pics of different $5 chips than I have. Here is mine:


New York New York
RDW posted one of my $5 chips, here is another along with a $1 that I think is new to this thread. I'm noticing the various ways the Paulson's logo appears on chips now thanks to Doc's commentary. These two chips highlight how the logo makes its way into the graphic when the tophat and cane are replaced by text around the perimeter.


Palazzo
The Palazzo chips featuring the hotel tower were posted by Doc and RDW. Here is a different $1 chip:

Las Vegas Part 6

Sorry for the hiatus, though the thread seems to have gone quiet without new casinos getting an official post. Here are some more Vegas chips for your amusement. I expect two more Vegas posts after this, though there is a chance I'll break them into three posts instead.

The Palms
RDW said here that he wasn't sure if non-commemorative Palms chips exist and others noted the large number of commemoratives. Mine are not commemoratives, even though I like collecting them.


Park MGM
I didn't expect to get to post my Park MGM chip as I only have regular $1 and $5 varieties that usually get posted by Doc and RDW. Couldn't find an RDW Park MGM post, so here it is.


Planet Hollywood
Two different $1 chips, just one $5 (front and back pictured)

s

Plaza
RDW posted my $5 chip, here is my $1


Quad
Same deal as Park MGM, I'm surprised I get to post this:


Rio would come next if I continued alphabetically, but I have too many Rio chips (many 2-sided) so I'll put them in their own post. I'll do those after getting the rest of my non-duplicate Vegas chips posted.

Riviera
My 50c and $1 chips were already posted. My $5 chip was also (by RDW, who else?), but only half of it. Here are both sides:

I repost my chips to get correct format, Thanks Steve.

City: Santa Cruz, Spain
Casino: Casino Santa Cruz


Casino Santa Cruz is a small casino in the capital of Tenerife. They have a number of slots, 1 BJ-table and 2 roulette tables + 1 Poker cash game table.

Except the name, they have identical chips on Casino Taoro and Casino Playa de las Americas


5-10-50-(100)-250-500 chips use the same design

City: Costa Adeje/Playa de las Americas, Tenerife, Spain
Casino: Casino Playa de Las America


This casino is slightly larger than the one in Santa Cruz.
They have 3/4 Roulette tables, 2 BJ-tables and a Caribbean draw poker table. They have room for 10 pokertournament tables and have 2-3 tournaments/week.
The dealers are in general unfriendly a some of them enjoy players loosing, and one time the dealer laughed out loud after a big loss.
The players are a mix of locals and tourist, and if you hit on 15-16 against 7-10, 12 against 2-3 or on soft 17, expect to be frowned upon from the locals.

A really small casino in Puerto de la Cruz with some slots, a BJ-table and a roulette.




As a curiosity from Tenerife they have this nice little city in the mountains:
