    Palms had a Playboy Club. I was in it several times.

    I have thought about doing a thread on it because maybe some of the newer visitors would wonder what the club was like.

    For those reading, when it first opened it was a high stakes little casino I think with roulette and blackjack and bartop video poker as I recall. I can proudly say I only won at the Playboy Club, playing blackjack and bartop video poker.

    Some example pictures I have

    I recall being shocked that the bar top VP had good pay schedules.

    Having never made it there, I'd be curious to hear more about it.

    What's Playboy? Is that a magazine that used to exist before there were naked ladies on the Internet?

    I went there the first night of my first trip in town. We went to a concert at the Pearl and they were handing out passes as we exited. I still have a pic taken by my ex wife a month before we divorced!!

    Never made it there, but seeing your chips reminds me of the ones I had been collecting for a while.
    I had several from the Hard Rock with former playmates. Still have the collection, not as much a thrill as it was then.

    Yes, Playboy clubs/casinos go for a high end image. The one near Cancun was very plush before it was closed by the authorities down there. They charged $20 or 200 pesos just to get in the joint.
