  1. Casino Chip Error - Grand Casino (Gulfport, MS)

    Upon entering the U.S. Air Force in 1987 I was sent to Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, MS, for my initial training. The 17 week course began in October and was easy enough.

Their hope was that patrons might decide to keep the $25 chip as a souvenir upon visiting the property. Since the chip would cost Caesars less than a dollar to design and produce, this venture might even turn a profit.
