Good luck cashing them...

With that said, if the dealer still has an accomplice on the inside, maybe they can get away with something.

I don't know what denomination they were or if they have any RFID in them. Obvious you should not just walk up to the cage and start cashing them. How well do they keep track of won chips and how much people are cashing in?

I assume they were thinking someone could mix the chips in with their play.

Do they have higher limit poker games? If so, the casino rarely knows how much a poker player wins or loses.

I suspect they'll be executed for the crime.

Those Chinese like to do that sort of thing, even have a portable execution van.

They probably have a ring of individuals they can sell the chips to at a fraction of the value.... just like counterfeit money. As long a the denominations are whites, reds, and greens.

They came from the high limit room and a single person appears to have carried them out through the front door. $6m worth. I'd be surprised if the average chip value was under 10k, right? 600 chips, that'd weigh 15ish pounds. I don't see someone making it out with more weight in a relatively quick manner... and if Wynn doesn't have RFID in chips worth this much, he deserves to lose $6m. That was my thought process at least.

Edit: I presumed USD, even if it's HKD those would be worth more than $100. If they're worth just $100 each then maybe not.

Hmm, something messes up they execute CEOs for it. I'd be worried if I was head of the casino. Sure they'll execute the thieves as well.
