BEFORE 1987, THERE WAS NOT A REQUIRED WAY FOR CASINOS IN NEVADA TO DESTROY THEIR OLD & DISCONTINUED POKER CHIPS & SLOT TOKENS. THESE GAMING ESTABLISHMENTS CAME UP WITH CREATIVE WAYS TO MAKE SURE NOT A SINGLE PERSON WOULD BE ABLE TO GET AHOLD OF THEIR "DEAD CHIPS & TOKENS." A WAY TO DISPOSE OF THEIR OLD POKER CHIPS & SLOT TOKENS WAS TO HIDE THEM IN THE CONCRETE MIX OF THE FOUNDATIONS OF HOTEL EXPANSIONS & PROPERTIES THAT WERE NEWLY BUILT ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP.
