I just talked to Joe. $5 chips for both events will be available on the table at face. 100 sets of the $1, $5, and $25 in plastic holders will be $85. This was a decision of the marketing committee.
Bob, your attitude surprises me. You seem to be saying why should the casino be satisfied with the sale of a chip when it could go up in value? If you buy a painting do you want to pay it's value of five years in the future? How about a house, what price are you willing to pay? Todays, tomorrows, how about yesterdays?
If the casino cannot make it on gambling, and wants future values of it's chips. Then the casino threatens the whole game of collecting. Consider that the casino pays about 80 cents per chip. For the casino to only make 5 to 25 times their investment doesn't seem bad to me.
