    Years ago I collected match books from several older casinos. I want to start again, but I don't recall seeing them out anymore. Do they still have them at the cashier's cage next to the wipes, or don't they have wipes anymore either?

    We pick up match books at bars (when available) for our SIL who has been collecting for quite a few years.

    I haven't seen those hand wipe packets on the strip in awhile - those things were handy.

    I saw them around at the bars. Sometimes they are behind the bar and you need to ask for one. I had to ask at Cosmo. My husband used my Cosmo matches, so they needed a replacement. ;)

    I didn't see wipes anywhere this past trip. I remember a few years ago we had a "dirt emergency" and needed them and I asked at the cage somewhere downtown for them and they told me they don't have them anymore because of the switch to TITOs.

    I have many match books from the older casinos, not Wynn, Cosmo, etc. I got most from my first visit while flying at Nellis in 1976. You don't see them around much anymore.
