    No, 30 clears for one $300. $12.00 is what I pay as a "courtesy", based on the "going" rate established at $300 strike distribution. You can "buy" 30 strikes for $360 dollars from many individuals if you don't want to gamble for them.

    Also, it "smooths out" the amount needed to get them. I have gotten as many as three in a row, but it's cost me as much as $75-$100 to get just one. Counting reds as $30-40 and blues as $20-$30, over the five years that I've been doing it, I calculate about $12.00 per clear cap.

    They just started the $40 at QQQQ. Right now, it's all the time. The machine is at the east entrance on Fremont St.

    Sweet. I'll have to talk the better half into a trip downtown to add one to my collection at the end of the month.

    Are Silver Strikes just offered at QQQQ? I will be downtown with my parents and grandparents and I wanted to look into them for souvenirs

    QQQQ has several machines. And El Cortez also has one. Strip-wise, I believe Palazzo still has one but not 100% sure.

    Thank you! I am a dollar chip collector from each of the casinos I visit, so this would definitely help add to the collection

    Sorry you must have answered this question many times: how much the red and blue worth in the market? I know their face value is $10.

    Blues are $20-$25 and reds are $30-$35. Gold (yellow) are $60-$80 (this is just a guess, too early to tell)

    The Four Queens strikes are a bit nicer to look at than the Palazzo strikes.

    If you're referring to the yellow cap ($40 Strike) machine, according to my friend, it has been repaired and has yellow caps in it.

    Just an update, I arrived back home on March 31st. The $40 gold cap Silver Strike machine was full and functioning from March 24-31. It was open the first time I saw it and I sat down and threw a $20 bill in. First pull....$40 Silver Strike! Wow, I love this machine!! Let's keep playing! The rest of the twenty went out the window, as did several more (maybe 6 or 7?) during the three days we were there. They do have a sign up that says if you win and there are people waiting you should get up. No one was there when I won, so I stayed.

    I was watching an older gentleman playing, hoping that he would hit so I could get on again, and he said, "I've put $400 in this machine and have yet to hit the gold one."

    Thanks for the info. Interesting discussion. I have seen the Silver Strike machines at FQ, but have never played them. Maybe I will give them a try next time I'm in town.

    Just got back from Vegas.
    The machine was there. I tried $100 in it and the best I did was 3 bars (different bars not the same).
    The Machine felt VERY tight.

    I went over put $100 in one of the older Silver Strike machine and won 14 strikes before I lost the $100 so that was decent and to make it even better I got 3 blue caps in those 14.
    I will stick to the regular machines.. The Gold ones are just too tight for my bankroll.

    I'm interested in collecting clear ones - never played these machines before. How much coin in do you generally have to play before you hit a strike?
