Collectible Casino Tokens
Palace Station $1 Token
This was the starting point for the entire Station Casinos chain of casinos. It started with a bingo place and , if I recall correctly a businessman by the name of Thomas who was told by the Gaming Control Boad to sell his place or else. I think he had made it impossible to hit the cover all on his bingo games. Mr. Fertita bought the place, installed a buffet and the place took off. I spent a lot of money there. One day I had an otherworldly experience. I am playing my usual slot machine when the lady next to me hit a $875 000 jackpot. I said to myself, I could just as easily played that machine. here is the kicker. She returned some weeks later, played the same machine and hit a $25 million jackpot. The odds on that happening must be astronomival It was in all the papers. The entire complex was renovated and is now fairly upscale. As with all Station Casino casinos it offers tons of free parking. It is a mostly locals place although it is sitting next to an off/on ramp of the I15. Very easy to get to.
This token has railroading images on one side. That makes it very collectible. I can imagine a collection with all four Station Casino tokens.
All tokens have been used in actual slot play at the casino and show various amounts of wear. See photo for condition.
All tokens are available from mounting in our Token Pocketwatches.
