    I've reached the point in my countdown where my mind is racing with all the things that I want to do and see in Vegas and thinking about my "I've never..." list.

    I've never won a Silver Strike. I have always wanted to, but never managed to make it happen, mostly due to not making it a priority to play. ;) What casinos in Vegas still have them? Any on The Strip or will I need to look downtown/off-Strip?

    I thought the Mirage still had one, but not sure. I know
    the 4 Queens does Downtown - on the Strip maybe Venetian. Don't think
    any of the Caesar's properties have them. I think I saw where
    someone said they got one at Venetian not too long ago. Just can't think
    of any on the Strip off hand other than those. Maybe someone who still
    collects them can help you. If Venetian does - maybe Palazzo too.

    I used to collect them, but it sort of drifted away from me. Hope you can
    find some.

    I just want one. :) Maybe @DaiLun has the scoop on them.

    I got one at Venetian, about a year or so ago. Had Shelly's portrait on the reverse side.

    I think they still have one machine at Sams Town, sort of kind of on the right as you walk in the main entrance.

    Mirage was going to have their two Silver Strike machines retired recently. Venetian's is toward the food court at the back of the casino. Downtown, there are ones at at least two properties.

    There's one on the Palazzo side as well, on the main walkway to the elevators. On the left side if walking towards the elevators, it faces the walkway.

    Four Queens has plenty of silver strike machines. I didn't have luck winning any the past week there.
     
    First trip for 2017!

    Sams Town has one at the main entrance on the right as you walk in. I won two strikes on twenty bucks a week ago. The machine had blue and red caps but we only stopped by for a short time before heading to Laughlin.

    Thanks for that!

    They say there are 5 Nevada locations - Venetian, Palazzo, Four Queens, El Cortez and Sam's Town.

    Not sure if I will be out by ST, but I will probably be downtown at some point. Otherwise V/P is an option.

    Sure looks like if I want one, I had better make it a priority this trip before they are gone.

    V/P is the only location on the strip. QQQQ has 8 machines, so if you're downtown, that's the place to go.

    They won't be gone anytime soon. QQQQ is the unofficial home of the Silver Strikers Club.

    The "S I L V E R S T R I K E" announcement when it hits is so addicting, along with the "W H E E L O F F O U R T U N E" announcement that it gets stuck in my head the whole time I'm in Vegas. Few other slots have that power for me.
    I recently found one of the SS coins in my luggage when I was packing for a weekend trip. I forgot that I had won it at Venetian on my last trip to Vegas in March and never cashed it in. I wish I had kept one of them from Mirage since those were themed for the Terry Fator show there since they have been removed now.

    I should update this with what I found. I went out to Sam's Town and their one machine was out of order. :( I went over to Four Queens and they had several. I sat on the one big bank of them and pretty quickly had myself two of them.

    Never did look at V/P or El Cortez.
