Casino Dig Chips: Dig It?

Casino Dig Chips: Dig It?

One of the most popular things in our store in Las Vegas in recent years has been the discussion of casino concrete foundation and the old casino chips that were found in the concrete.

As the Chip Guide website states about some of these chips, “Examples were found embedded in concrete when the New Frontier casino was demolished in November 2007. Many are damaged, either broken or colors are blanched.”

A dig chip is an old casino chip that was buried in the concrete below a casino resort. When the New Frontier Casino was demolished, a variety of casino chips and tokens from Las Vegas, Laughlin and even Jean, Nevada were found in the concrete foundation. Those places included the Sands Hotel that was just South of the Frontier, Pioneer Hotel and Gaming Hall in Laughlin and Pop’s Oasis in Jean, Nevada.

After talking about dig chips in the office, we decided we would bring out all the dig chips and tokens from those places we have to sell.

When it comes to Las Vegas history, the chips from the Sands are from the 1970s. A few of them buried in the concrete were the $5, $25 and $100 Sands chips that had the Hughes Nevada Operations logo on them, which is seen on the chip as H.N.O.. Those chips were made during the period when Howard Hughes owned the Sands Hotel and Casino. Those chips in great condition go for hundreds of dollars and have always been sought after. We have a few of those for sale and some others you can find below.

So, the next time a casino gets demolished, are you up for some digging? In the meantime, you can find our list of dig chips below for purchase.

The Sands $5 Hughes Nevada Operations chips are $20. You can purchase one clicking the picture below:

 

The Sands $5 baccarat chips from the 1970s are $15 each. Click the picture below to purchase:

In the picture below, I have 5 of the 25 cent chip, one of the $25 chip and one $100 chip. The 25 cent chip is $2, the $25 chip is $3 and the $100 chip is $4. If interested in any of these, send me an email to marketing@spinettis.com to purchase.

In this lot, we only have one each/ The Half Sands $25 HNO chip is $5, the MGM Grand Reno $5 Chip is $10 and the Little Caesars $5 chip is $5. If interested in any, send me an email to marketing@spinettis.com

Casinos, Brothels and Chips from Beatty, Nevada

Casinos, Brothels and Chips from Beatty, Nevada

With a population of a little more than 1000, Beatty, Nevada has a great small-town story and history. It is 120 miles away from Las Vegas. The town is more than 100 years old. It was founded in 1905. It was named after a man by the name of Murray “Old Man” Beatty. He ended up being the town’s first postmaster. The town was also known for its burro/donkey races that took place from 1961 to 1972. Mining is also a part of the history of Beatty.

When it comes to casino gaming, the first casino in Beatty opened in 1952 according to Chip Guide. The Beatty Club was opened to 1976 and was a cocktails and gaming lounge establishment. It was located on Highway 95. According to The Chip Rack, there were only three casino chips used for the gaming during its history. All of them are rated Z-1 or higher for their value.

Opened in 1983, Stagecoach Hotel and Casino continues to operate. It has 80 hotel rooms, slot machines, and some table games. A Gateway to Death Valley is one of the city’s slogans. It is advertised on one of the tokens.

Another cool landmark is the Sourdough Saloon. You can see a picture of it below we took recently. This casino does not have table games. It only has slot machines. Pizza, beer, and slots is what this establishment advertises.

 

Finally, back in 1906, the Exchange Club was established. It is a 24-hour casino, restaurant, and bar. The casino does not have table games today. It only has slot machines. According to Chip Guide, the casino gaming started in 1954. See a picture of the place below.

Las Vegas History Series: Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Comes to an End

Las Vegas History Series: Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Comes to an End

Over the weekend into early Monday morning, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino closed its doors for the final time. The future of the resort and casino now lies in the hands of Richard Branson and the Virgin airline and hotel chain. The Virgin Hotels Las Vegas resort will be going through a period of renovations and changes. That is the reason for the temporary closing. Expect the resort to be open back in the Fall of 2020.

We were on hand for the closing weekend of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The last weekend featured lots of different music, some giveaways of Hard Rock music celebrity memorabilia. It included everything from autographed guitars to gold records. The last weekend that occurred from January 30th to February 2nd was billed as The Last Great Party. 

For the staff of 1850 people, they are allowed to return to the new Virgin resort opening in the Fall of 2020 if they want to. Focusing on the Hard Rock resort in Las Vegas, I wanted to look back at a few things from its history. Here are eight interesting facts.

One: The resort opened in March of 1995. At the time, it was the first Rock & Roll themed hotel.

Two: The cost to open the resort at the time was 100 million dollars. The value of the music memorabilia at the resort was two million dollars.

Three: When the Palms opened in 2001, it became a competitor of the Hard Rock for the young adult crowd in Las Vegas.

Four: John Entwistle of the band The Who died in room 658 at the resort back in 2002 a day before a concert performance.

Five: Veteran Hollywood actor and gambler Ben Affleck was banned from the blackjack tables for counting cards.

Six: Scenes from the movie 21 about the MIT blackjack card counting team were shot there.

Seven: The pool party scene history in Las Vegas cannot be discussed without mentioning the Rehab pool parties at the Hard Rock. A reality series was even made about the staff titled Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel. It aired on TruTV.

Eight: In its entire history, 14,000 people worked there.

In celebration of the Hard Rock, we wanted to show you a variety of different cards, chips and dice we have on our website and Ebay from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. You can purchase each item clicking the picture below.
