Collectible Casino Tokens
Rio $1 Token
This is not exactly a strip propert.It is well away from the strip on W. Flamingo Rd. The success (eventual) of this hotel prompted other developers to build casinos/hotels away from the strip. There are now a number of them, The Palms, Red Rock, Orleans, for example. More are being developed, mostly along freeway off ramps. At one time it advertised a baked potato so big it would feed a family. I did not believe it and checked it out. It proved to be true. I was unable to finish it by myself. Mr. Marnell, a real estate developer built the Rio.. He also built the "M", about ten miles south of center strip. It is the all black glass building on the righ hand side of the I-15 as you drive in from the south. The tokens are silver tone.
The token is pretty nice.
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.
