Mo & John's Casino Chip Collection

Casino Chips from our travels – 46 States and 9 Provinces

Before we bought the Motel, we were crazy about Road Trips and Casino Adventures! We are avid Blackjack Players, and John loves to hit it big at Roulette too. Our favourite past time is turning Red Chips into Black Chips ~
