Chips and Palace Casinos are two smaller, separate casinos that share a building, as well as ownership. These are two of four small casinos that make up a small cluster in the small Washington town of La Center. Located just 20 miles north of Portland, the Chips and Palace Casinos offer Portlanders' their closest option for a casino-type setting. Both casinos offer several different table card games, such as Black Jack, Spanish 21, and Pai Gow Poker. Chips Casino features live Texas Hold'em Poker, which is the main difference between the two. Both Casinos also have a restaurant, full bar, and allow customers to drink on the gambling floor, as well as at the tables. -Nathan Gancher
