    A couple trips ago I started collected $1 chips to every casino I play at and I almost have all the casinos on the strip and downtown done. Does anyone know if O'sheas and Margaritaville have there own $1 chips, or do they just use $1 chips from Linq/Flamingo? I don't spend a lot of time at CET casinos so not sure if I should make the effort to go by these two mini casinos on my next trip to play a bit and get some chips!

    I've only ever played craps at O'sheas, and they use LINQ chips there.

    I played at Margaritaville once, but was too :drunk: to remember what the chips were!!!

    Westgate (formerly Hilton) has new chips. They brought them in about a year ago. Also Ellis Island had a new edition of $1 chips.

    CMax resort is another one thats over looked.

    Oshea's yes. I do not think Margaritaville does.

    Here is a pic of my collection, most from Vegas.

    I'm pretty certain that Margaritaville has their own chips. They have some Flamingo chips mixed in as well, but IIRC they have their own chips.

    I wonder if that O'sheas is from before they closed and reopened?

    Yes Margaritaville has chips. They are flamingo chips with the Margaritaville logo.

    New osheas does not. Unless they are at tables other than craps.

    Yeah, the old Oshea's did but they now just use the Linq chips after they re-opened. The $5 Margaritaville chip is all over Flamingo but can't seem to find the $1 Margaritaville chip.

    Also, to Frosted - that's a pretty sweet display case. where did you get it?

    I'm doing the same thing you are, and getting a $1 chip for every place I play at. I'm glad I got one at Riviera and LVC before they closed.
    I just need to find a good way to clean the chips without taking the color off. the LVC one is pretty grungy. This trip I'm hoping to increase mine by a good bit with staying on the strip this time.
    Want to get over to Hooters so I can get one there before they close/change names.

    Yeah I was able to get LVC and Riviera during my April trip too! Also got to Hooters last trip before they change over to "Hive" or whatever.

    I just used a toothbrush and some dish soap and lukewarm water to clean off my chips. Worked pretty well. The collectors club has a bunch of other tips: http://www.ccgtcc.com/cleaning.html
