Frequently Asked Questions

Before we get bombarded with questions about where all the content went that existed on the original site please understand that the original content has not been lost nor is it completely inaccessible, as a matter of fact, you can still reach the old content and the old site at, however it’s important to understand that we are in the process of completely reworking all of the information and photos and slowly, very slowly placing it on this new site.  The original site had hundreds and hundreds of ashtray photos, town pictures and postcards, and casino histories, all of which needs to be re-entered and reformatted for this new site.  All of that data entry, time and effort is being done without cost so the position on our “to-do list” is low.  This site has been maintained for well over 15 years without any compensation to anyone whatsoever so making unnecessary and inappropriate demands absolutely does not help, especially to those making the demands.  Please exercise patience as we work on this free site, if you absolutely must look something up please visit the old site as mentioned above.  More FAQs with answers will be provided as we receive them.


How do I become a contributor to this site?

The easiest way is to send an e-mail to the site administrators and let them know exactly what you have and how you’d like to see it added to the site.  Also, let us know if you’d like to contribute more information in the future.  For example, you may have a unique or rare ashtray that you’d like to add a photo of to a specific casino page but you’re not necessarily interested in maintaining that casino page.  We’re totally okay with that, just reach out to us and we will instruct you to just send us the photo and we’ll add it to respective page.  Or, you may have several ashtray photos, casino and/or town histories or other casino memorabilia you’d like to share and you’re interested in maintaining a specific casino’s webpage, we’ll work together to show you how you can do that and then let you have it.  Each contributor is different and each has their own way of contributing to this project.  Let us know your intentions and we’ll work together to find a good place for you to fit in.

Thank you for your interest in helping us.

      Hey Lori,

      I’m not sure why you’re not seeing any of the ashtray photos or any of the postcard photos on the old site at but I just did a spot check on several different casinos and towns and everything is coming through for me okay. I’ve tried two different browsers and both worked for me. I really don’t have an explanation for you, I’m sorry.

      In regards to the new site, yes, it is still a work in progress and most of it has not been converted to the new format just yet. Basically whenever I have some spare time to mess with it I’ll update a few pages, or if someone like you contacts me with new ashtray photos then I’ll get right to work on the new images and/or information. I have about a dozen or so new ashtray photos that I’ll get posted in the next day or so then I’ll send out a newsletter to let everyone know about the new additions to the site.

      I can’t express enough how much I appreciate your new information and ashtray photo for Frank Sinatra’s Cal-Neva Lodge in Tahoe. I’m sure there will be quite a few people that will comment on your tray.

      As always, contact me any time…………Floyd
