Showboat $1 Token
It opened in 1995. It was located on East Fremont, within the Las Vegas city limits It opened with 100 rooms and was considered to be the first resort hotel. It had several expansions. I drove by there many times and always wondered about that casino, so far away from all the action. But it survived for many years. Some years later the Station Casinos group decided to build Boulder Station, fairly close to the Showboat. It then bought the Showboat and tore it down. I always had a suspicion it wanted no competition.I could be wrong, but, very strange.
That casino may be gone, but I have a few of their tokens. They are hard to come by, and very collectible.
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.
