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?


Minimum bet blackjack until they are all gone and converted to real chips. Or if bj has horrible rules, follow what's best on here, page 9:

If it were me, I'd use a ... progressive



As you say, "it depends". Making larger bets I would question myself, since you are at an advantage. Usually you figure you want less variance when at an advantage and larger bets is going to increase the variance.

I would make 160 $5 bets, never betting more using the promo chips.

And yes I would look into the roulette, what do they mean? At least half the numbers at once? Or no more than half? If you can bet on one number, or a few numbers, that is the way to go.

Can exceed 100% return on promo if they are the play till you lose type by using them to bank Pai Gow or as odds on Craps. Variance of course could kill.

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.

Some casinos don't allow this.

..and don't do this with "play once & die chips", because they will disappear on pushes.

P.S. Some casinos also frown upon simultaneously betting pass & don't pass in craps (with optional 12 bet).

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.

I like playing with silly progressions.

5 5 10 15 20 25 25 ... if the game is cold (2 or 3 wins before increase, 1 1 2 3 4 5, or 1 1 2 3 2 4 5)
5 10 15 20 25 25 ... simple (1 2 3 4 5)
5 15 10 20 25 25 25 ... aggressive, just pretend the first win didn't happen & add a chip, Like the CPR craps strategy, take some profit on 3rd bet (1 3 2 4 5)
5 15 35 15 35 50 ... hyper-aggressive (1 3 7 3 7 10)

Instead of capping at 25 or 50, you can be more aggressive and continually increase.
