The New China Club opened in Reno in 1952 by returning WWII serviceman, Bill Fong. Games like Keno, fan tan
and pai gow became very popular in this casino and eventually a “Fong Open” for Asian and black gamblers attracted
celebrity guests such as Joe Lewis and Jesse Owens.
This is my latest giant casino chip that I have painted and it is preciously guarded by my little Bella, who will nibble at your feet if you try to touch the art.
