Time To Cash Your $25,000 Bellagio Chips

Remember the robbery at the Bellagio last month? A man wearing a riding suit with his face hidden by a motorcycle helmet walked in and pulled a gun, escaping with around one and a half million dollars in Bellagio chips valued up to $25,000 each.  The suspect fled the casino on his motorcycle and remains at large.

The Bellagio has announced that it is discontinuing use of its $25,000 chip. The chips must be redeemed by April or will be worthless. Of course, if you walk in and cash a pocketful of them, unless you're Doyle Brunson, Sam Farha, Tom Dwan, or one of the other regulars at the "Big Game," security might want to have a discussion with you.

As Josie likes to say, "Play smart." I think MGM Resorts (owners of the Bellagio), played this one very smart!

Because I'm a small potatoes player, I don't have any $25K chips that I need to cash, but you "Whales" like Memphis MOJO and Wolfman, might want to get to Vegas right away and cash in!

Till next time, win the flips!

Happy trails.
