Preserving Gaming History

This website is dedicated to those around the world that collect chips from unlicenced (illegal) clubs.

There is nothing worse to an illegal chip collector than having an initial chip and not knowing where it was in use.

The old manufacturers records on this site can be attributed to many of us researching initial chips over the years. Those of us involved in illegal chip collecting have invested many research hours and dollars accumulating these records. We now share them with the world.

The main focus of the website is the distributors cards for the companies that supplied a large proportion of illegal gaming pieces.  These distributors also supplied many licensed gaming establishments and home orders in their own right, and records for those are also included.  This website will be a constant 'work in progress'.  As of October 2009 over 600 man hours has been spent formatting and indexing nearly 7,000 records detailing orders of over 15,000 different chips and other gaming supplies.  In addition, we present various other articles, documents and catalogs from the maunfacturers, and a memorial tribute to the late Janice O'Neal.
