    I don't think the Sahara chips are out but the former Hooters is now Oyo and they have new chips.

    Jaw-dropper: Sahara's still using SLS chips and we hear it's because new chips weren't ordered with sufficient time for production (8-12 weeks) and gaming approval ahead of resort rebrand. Sahara likely to owe SBE (SLS brand owner) about $800k in licensing fees due to the gaff.

    Thanks for the Vital Vegas mention. Employees are saying "soon," but that's the only information I could dig up. Quite a mess with the chip ordering. The person who should've been on top of it has had the task removed from their plate. ")

    Heading out in December. I love to collect property chips and am looking forward to getting some of the newer ones like Strat & Oyo. Hopefully Sahara too!

    Did Sahara actually re-open their poker room? I don't see anything on Bravo. What games are they spreading?
