How much are these chips worth?



About half as much as you spent to get them.

Tomorrow Iím going to grab a second new chip before heading back to Edmonton to continue the grind. Exciting news Starlight casino which has been closed since March is opening on Nov 2 so I can finally collect that chip as I havenít been there since the rebrand.

Smart aleck answers like that are why I concentrate posts on the other forum.

How much did they cost me - considering I won them? 0. Just time and guts.

No he hasnít but has said it to others over the years. Iíll kindly ask that you take the banter back to your thread. This is Docs thread and we all like to avoid conflict in this thread. Thank you

Top photo $31,500. Iím guessing orange is $10,000

Bottom $33,200. The silver thing isnít a chip, right ?

Iím actually surprised the Henderson casino has $5k chips. I wouldnít think there would be too many people playing at that level off the strip



Close. The orange chips, called "pumpkins" are $25,000. At one casino I play at these chips are more like light brown. Also, there are no $10,000. chips - they all go from $5000. straight to $25,000. and then...the rarest of the rare...$100,000. chips which are almost never out at the tables, and don't even exist at all but the highest end casinos.

Top photo $46,500.


Bottom $34,200. (you missed one yellow is all).


GVR (Henderson) has the $5K chips out all the time (at least in High Limit), but although they actually do have $25,000. chips, they are not usually out from what I was told (I actually asked for one).

Category: Canada
City: Lloydminster, Saskatchewan
Casino: Gold Horse


Today's chip of the day is from Gold Horse Casino in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. Gold Horse opened on December 21, 2018. The casino is about 2.5 hours from Edmonton, Alberta or on the way to Edmonton when coming in from the east. Almost 7 weeks ago all casinos in Canada not in Alberta or Saskatchewan were closed and thus my income disappeared. I decided spur of the moment to head to Edmonton for a week and check out the profitability of the city. It was good enough that I stayed for just over 6 weeks until the corona numbers got so bad that the casinos were a bunch of ghost towns.

I was 15+ hours into my drive to Edmonton when I arrived at Gold Horse. I played 2 hands of BJ and won both with the second hand being a BJ. Since the reopen in Saskatchewan the dealers control the chips for each player. They place the chips into a chip rack beside the bet circle and the dealer asks each player how much they want to bet before each hand, this is obviously to avoid players touching the chips. I spent about 20 minutes picking off the plays that I found on the machines but there wasn't much as they only have 250 slots and 5 table games.

The chip is white RHC with 3 purple/blue edge inserts. The middle of the chip has a dreamcatcher with the SIGA logo in the middle of it. SIGA stands for Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority which governs the 7 Aboriginal casinos in the province. The casino name and denomination are white with a yellow and black border.



I have two more chips that I will post over the next two days.
