304 Ogden

Las Vegas, NV


Honest John's Casino

1961-1967

There were three locations for Honest John's and they used similar tokens and other items.

The 304 E Ogden Location was slots only.


The better know location was at
2440 Las Vegas Blvd. South which was open
from 1963 to 1974

The location of that casino is shown on the paper chip to the left.

Honest John's was not known for the quality of their gaming chips!  Some were glued on paper tops with a rubber stamp text.


















In an April 10th, 1964 article it mentions that Arthur G. Grant, Norman G. Little, and Joseph Rashkov are approved for a non-restricted license for slot machines at Honest John’s Newsstand.     Arthur G. Grant  is approved for 50% of the slot machines at Honest John’s Newsstand.


Below is a terrific example of a piece of slot glass that has survived over the years. I'm not sure which of the locations of Honest John's it's from.

The Ogden Street location of Honest John's probably did not have table games so these chips would have been used at the 2440 Las Vegas Blvd. South  location.


I am showing them here just because I like them!
