    Going to vegas in March.

    I have read a tip about getting a chip as a souvenir from every Casino. Want to do that.. Is it possible to get $1 chips in every Casino? any one that you cant get $1? What is the lowest there?

    Is it entrance fee in any of the casinos in Las Vegas? or Dresscode? Is it ok to gamle in jeans, regular shoes and t-shirt?

    You should be able to get $1 chips at all of them. I used to go to the cage and ask for a nice/newer one rather than trying at a table.

    No entry fee at the casinos. No dress code as long as you have something on really. Jeans, shoes, t shirt are fine.

    It ain't Monaco. I collect the chips, too. Most casinos are cool with it. I only had one act suspicious about it. $1 is the lowest chip they have. Most casinos use a white chip to designate $1. No dress code. You'll see people in pajamas and slippers or sandals and sometimes barefoot.

    We have a large beer stein full of $1 and $5 chips for just about every casino we visited, not just Vegas. We're at the point now where my wife and I ask each other "Do we have this chip?" Usual response is a shrug of the shoulders. It's a good cheap souvenir and pretty cool to take them out every now and them.

    I collected a $1 chip from every casino on the strip and downtown last July. I did one side of the strip each day and downtown only took a couple hours.

    Get the chips at the cage, not the tables - unless you are playing. If you tell the cashier at the cage you're collecting casino chips you'll be pleasantly surprised how many of them will look for a nice clean one for you.

    No entrance fees to casinos and casual dress is fine.

    Have a great trip!!! :peace: :beer:

    I'm sitting here trying to imagine if Vegas implemented an "entrance fee"... even if it was $1... there's at least 30 VMBers who would literally crap there pants!!!

    Hey Now!
    I'm also a collector. I've got 2 display cases full. I always ask for $1 tokens as well, harder to get each day as everyone is going to TITO.
    I have some Silver Strikes too...

    If you are attending Paytriple's party, you have to pay an "entrance fee" and bring your own Valtex. However, you can purchase condoms for $5 and used condoms for $2.50 (just flip it inside out - 2 time use). :poke:

    Everyone attending the party will be making a voluntary donation to the party fund.
    Only Riddick would have had to pay an "entrance fee"!

    And of course, each girl at the party will have her own separate "entrance fee".....

    I collect the $1 chips as well. I usually get it from the tables but thanks for suggesting the cage. I also have quite a few $1 tokens back from when they still used them.

    No dress code in casinos. But it's always good to dress nicely, at least no harm.

    Harrah's St. Louis get sold a year or two ago so it's no longer Harrah's, but back in the early 90's before the current casino/hotel building was built, it was a riverboat and they used to charge you an entrance fee (I think it was $5). Plus, if you were playing slots/video poker, the machines used tokens rather than real coins. So you HAD to cash them in when you were finished. I believe they still have a loss limit per day in Missouri; back then I believe it was $200 per day. A couple years ago I was playing VP at Harrah's St. Louis and a lady next to me was just sitting at her machine; she was waiting till the top of the hour when she could put more money into the machine; she was currently at her limit... The machines there don't operate unless you have a slot club card inserted (so your loss limit can be tracked)..Quite a bit different than Vegas!

    Valley Forge Casino close to my home in PA has this. You have to pay a membership fee to get in.
