    I hooked up my old computer (my scanner only works with this computer) and was reminded that the game "Bicycle Casino" is on it. I think the game is from 2001. You can play casino games at Treasure Island, Mirage, and Bellagio. As you win you get comps like helicopter rides to the Grand Canyon, dinner at the resort's restaurant, etc. The cool part is that a lot of the game has pictures from these resorts in it. For example, I saw what the High Roller suites at Bellagio look like, even though I'll never actually stay in one.

    Anyway, you click on the denomination of chip you want to use, and I had completely forgotten they use Bellagio's chips. The spots aren't necessarily accurate, but it's cool that they used the right colors.

    Between the game and the video work by FNCraig and Silverwind, I came up with a chip factory mockup of the high-denom Bellagio chips. I doubt the really high ones even exist, but I had some time on my hands last night and thought I'd have some fun.

    I'll bet he is using this $25,000 chip as his ball mark on the putting green! Now that's class. None of these cheap pennies, but a REAL ball marker!

    Or maybe he's betting each hole with chips.

    Man. I would love to see a clear version of this chip.

    I wonder if there is a new version of this chip?

    Grabbed a picture from another thread in a post by cpiaaq.

    He was able to get a good capture of the bellagio 25k chip. Must have had a good video source.

    Holy giant pic, Batman!!!!:happy:


    That chip is a beauty. Not just because it is $25k, but everything about it.

    So damn pretty....



    We really need to get a drooling e-chip-icon.

    Here's a picture of the original older style $25,000 bellagio chip. They also have $100,000 chips - I actually colored up to one several years ago after a ridiculously insane run at blackjack. Those are gray with red stripes and very ugly. I have a picture somewhere that I would have to find. I had $200K in $5K chips, and told them I didn't want to cash in yet or deposit them - I just wanted to color up since all they had at the table were $5K chips. The cage manager asked if I wanted gray or melons. I said half and half, not even realizing at the time that they had $100K chips. She said "I have to get approval to give you a grey". About 5 minutes later she came out with 4 $25K chips and a single $100K chip. Funny, I took the chip to a craps table later that night, and at first glance the dealer turned to the floor man and said "uhh...this looks fake, I don't think we have $10K chips". He had never seen one. I blurted out to him "I think you missed a zero". They had to call the cage just to give me change :sorry:.
    Anyway, here's a picture of a $25K chip.

    That's a great pic and story--thanks for sharing. If you find the $100K pic that would be pretty sweet, too! :)
