This May Come As A Surprise To Those Of You Not Living In Las Vegas , But There Are More Catholic Churches Than Casinos.


Not Surprisingly, Some Worshippers At Sunday Services Will Give Casino Chips Rather Than Cash When The Basket Is Passed.


Since They Get Chips From Many Different Casinos, The Churches Have Devised A Method To Collect The Offerings.


The Churches Send All Their Collected Chips To A Nearby Franciscan Monastery For Sorting And Then The Chips Are Taken To The Casinos Of Origin And Cashed In.


This Is Done By The Chip Monks...!.




You Didn't Even See It Coming Did You .? Gotcha !!

Haven't been to Vegas for a few years. I like to stay at the Mirage and shoot craps at the Casino Royale across the street. I heard that they were going to tear it down about a year ago. After reading some comments I would not play BJ there, though I have never actually seen anything myself.
