I just visited Aruba and collected 1 chip from The Casino inside thr Hilton that is a tiny bit different than what PokerGrinder posted in 2019 so I wanted to share it as well, just dont know what format I should use.

https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/off-topic/general/8928-casino-chip-of-the-day/762/#post712845

There were 4 BJ tables with different mins from $5 - 15, 2 roulette tables with 1 wheel in the middle, a 3CP and Caribbean stud at $5-250. I played 2 hands of BJ, the 2nd was a BJ and I was paid $12, that's when I noticed the felt said 6 to 5. I told the dealer I was moving to another table and he said all tables are 6 to 5 so I colored up and left.




I also have 2 chips from Cali Colombia I will post at a later date when I have the writeups ready.
I CD-ROM.

I guess they are trying to sell their old set of chips. Iím not sure why youíd pay Ä3 for a cancelled (hole punched in it) chip rather than go to the table and get a chip for face value.

Sad but unfortunately the casinos in both Tallinn and Tartu Estonia use the same chips. Bummer.

Now Iím in Latvia (Riga) and there are two casinos by the same company that owns the Estonian casinos and they have different chips at both. So random 🤷‍♂️

I didnít have much luck yesterday, actually I did but I didnít. I visited 6 casinos and only got to collect one new chip in Vilnius, Lithuania but I did win about Ä1100. I guess I shouldnít complain.

Iím going on another free Carnival cruise in January to the southern Caribbean including Curaçao and as you know Doc itís a disaster trying to figure out what exists there. Aruba is easy but Curaçao is a disaster, how does that make any sense?
