I have $800 nickel promo chips. All table games in the morning are $5 minimum. The only restriction is, if I should play roulette 2 zero game I can only play half the numbers. What game should I play and strategy?

Depends on what mix of fun you want: Fun vs Profit. And subject to any other restrictions, of course.

If it were me, I'd use a silly and simple little 5, 10, 15, 20, 20, 20 progressive on one of the even money bets.
If available on a lower edge game, like Blackjack, which I'd prefer, then same progression on that game.

One other idea, if you want to play through the chips quickly... Play a set percentage of your bankroll each hand, E.g, 5%, where you start with $40 per hand and if you win or lose, keep the percentage the same but adjust the wager. Worked for me when I had £150 of bonus and ended up walking away with £6,000

Obviously cut back when there is a risk of wagering real money.

The only way to win big is to embrace the variance and to risk losing.

Depending on what type of promo chips they are... but you can try to convert them to real money by playing baccarat. Just play the player and the banker with the promo chips. You will win one in real chips and lose one. Keep playing player and banker every hand with the promo chips until you have converted to all real chips. You will pay 5% juice on just the hands that banker has won.

Im not sure what your chips are, but I have done this with my promo chips in the past. It shouldn't be a problem, as the casino wants people on property to collect the promos, which they know will ultimately come back to them the more time you spend at the casino....and they only give promo chips to people that warrant them from previous play.

That would defeat variance if it's allowed. Sure to be frowned on and no chance to win big. Boring as hell if permitted.
slightly better just to break up into $5s and flat bet Banker.

Depends on what the person's objective is. If they can get close to 800 bucks free in their pocket, then why not? Then they can put half in their bank and free roll with the other half if they want to try and hit it big. Just the smart way to do it, but not the most exciting if you need action.

.....and who in the world cares if its frowned upon by the casino. They are giving you the promo chips so you will come to their property and lose your money to them. They dont frown when you give all of your money to them now do they?

Play one chip on each of the half of the numbers they allow and repeat - if they allow it on straight up number bets them 100000 percent do that
