By continued popular demand, we are listing our high-end casino chip collection on our website for sale. Volume 6 is going to focus mostly on our chips from the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, Flamingo Capri and Flamingo Hilton. Still on the Las Vegas Strip today and full of history, the movie Bugsy, starring Warren Beatty as Bugsy Siegel, gives a great look at how the Flamingo came to be.
The original opening date was December 26, 1946. Those wishing to pay tribute to the famous mobster, can have a drink for Bugsy Siegel at Bugsy’s Bar inside the Flamingo. Though many may not know this, Bugsy Siegel was not the visionary behind the Flamingo. A man by the name Billy Wilkerson originally came up with the idea to make this amazing resort. When he ran into financial issues during the building of the hotel and casino, Bugsy stepped in to provide the extra funding.
In our high-end casino chip feature this week, we even have some of the early edition casino chips from the Flamingo for sale. Those chips are some of the most sought after in the hobby. Though it was not the first hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip, many people first think of the Flamingo as the beginning of the Las Vegas Strip.
