The Reel Deal opened in 1992 in the same location of the Franklin Brothers Casino which had shut its doors a few months earlier. Before it was Franklin Brothers and the Reel Deal it had been the better known Orbit Inn. The photo above is one of the only pictures I have come across and it was taken by fellow Casino Collectible enthusiast Steve Miller in July 1992. The Reel Deal only lasted about a year.
Since the Reel Deal Casino was only open for about a year the chips you find are usually in great shape! Unfortunately for the owners they weren’t used very long or very hard on the tables.
