New issue rack for Silver Sevens Las Vegas

Terrible’s at the corner of Paradise and East Flamingo roads, which is owned by Affinity Gaming, has a new name: The Silver Sevens Hotel & Casino.  A whole new rack of chips were issued using the same center inlay design on all denominations. Chips were released on July 1st of 2013

Affinity Gaming, which owns a dozen casinos in Nevada, Colorado, Iowa and Missouri, was created following the bankruptcy reorganization of Herbst Gaming in December 2010.  The rebranding is the third name for the off-Strip location, which was originally opened as the Continental. The Herbst family acquired the casino out of bankruptcy in 1999 and remodeled the property into Terrible’s in 2000.
