    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.
