    Hopefully with the Olympic theme.
    Sounds like my wallet is going to take another hit after picking up some chips from TonyPap..

    I have seven of the Four Queens 07/07/07 chips for luck.
    I guess eight is in order if they're doing it again this year.

    A $5 chip??? What fool decided that? :huh:
    It would have made more sense to have it set at $7 .

    The Orleans plans to release an 8-8-08 chip.

    No other details at this time.

    This link is to the Nevada Gaming Commission July, 2008 Chip and Token Report .pdf. Clicking it will download a .pdf version of the July Report, which includes some 08-08-08 releases, including The Orleans $8, Four Queens, a NCV from Palace Station and multiple Harrah's property releases.

    I did not look at the June Report, which may have others and the August Report may contain others, yet they could be released now (if approced).

    Avoid the injection, get the compression.
    I was in Vegas to watch the WSOP in 2007, and went to the Four Queens about 1 week after the 07-07-07 chips were released to the public.

    I got lucky and found a cashier who sold 2 of them to me, so I gave him a nice tip.

    I also asked if there were anymore available, and he said they were sold-out on the first or second day, but he had gotten a few for himself.

    I went through some of the reports that Gaming Ore pointed out, and compiled a list of casinos with Lucky Eights chips. Feel free to add if you want.

    I hope it makes it easier for anyone in Vegas to get 1 of each chip for me...just thought I'd ask..:)

    Scratch IP, word is they were held back by the cage and will not be released. This is per a CC&GTCC long-time member that works there (not in the cage or in gaming areas) but is very aware of releases. If conditions change, he will let us know on TheChipBoard.
