Like many other areas of collectibles, casinos have special edition chips for holidays that include Halloween. What makes this interesting is these chips are produced and used for a limited time.
Taking you through some of the history of Las Vegas and Halloween chips, Playboy was known for its yearly famous Halloween costume party in California. While the Playboy Club was part of the Palms Hotel & Casino in the Entertainment Capital of the World from 2006 to 2012, this $5 chip was produced. Nothing says Halloween like a sexy Playboy lady carrying a pumpkin. You can see it below and it is currently available for purchase in on our Ebay store.
The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino has also got in on the action with zombies, skeletons, bats, pumpkins and more. One of the chips says that it actually is a Dead Man’s Party or how about a Zombie Jamboree? Whatever the case may be, this set of three Halloween chips from the Hard Rock in Las Vegas is absolutely unique. You can find more information about them clicking the picture below:
Some of the other places in town that have done Halloween chips include Aliante, Fiesta, Silver Nugget and Showboat. Three of these establishments are still open today and the Showboat, which was renamed the Castaways Hotel and Casino, closed in 2004. This set of four chips is also available for sale on Ebay and you can see below:
Finally, nothing says Halloween like Frankenstein. At the Gilpin Hotel & Casino in Blackhawk, Colorado, Frankenstein made his appearance on the tables for Halloween in 2000. You can learn more information about him below by clicking the picture:
