I don't think anyone said they were silver. It was said they are gold plated and somewhere in the past it was said they would all be clad.
I agree, I think the machines would get so much more play even if they had just one .999 silver chaser in the same machine. But not my casino nor my choice. I "do not" want the program to fail simply because maybe the powers that be will read some of our feedback and might make a change and add a "silver strike" either a $10 or $40 or both.
My nickels worth.
