You're right about currency but there isn't an option sometimes.

With casino chips there is an option.

Give me the option, please.

There are so many advantages for players and for casinos to be chipless I can't understand why this is being debated?

If you think you won't be anonymous anymore relax... the chipless systems can be anonymous just like the slot machines you use other people's cards on to get their free play. LOL

You have the option. Go play slots or one of the new table games with terminals. Are you going to not touch anything else in the casino? You will be sitting in that dirty chair, leaning on the dirty table, who knows what else. You might be better to stay home.

You do the same thing with currency.



Which is why many of us avoid currency.

And, why I also support casinos moving away from cash to an electronic payment system for credits.

Been handling currency all my life, No issues. Anyone afraid of touching currency call me, I will pick up and safely dispose of it.

I mean its pretty common to be card only.

I only use my debit cards for everything (don't beleive on credit cards).

Many places are going cashless. Casinos are actually the rare exception in this regard (they tend to be an exception in many categories, smoking, etc...).

The marketplace will determine the answers to these questions, in two ways:

Casinos will want and need to open long before the software and hardware changes will be in place, along with training of dealers and floors (if these job titles are meant to endure with "chipless" gambling). No casino is going to postpone opening until their programming staff writes the code and their carpenters build whatever these new tables will look like. Never mind the financial enhancements needed in order to electronically take money (can I still bring cash to the table?) and tally up the losses.

If this were a viable method to gamble, people would have long ago stopped coming to casinos.

Gamblers are not the smartest people in the world. Nobody that takes covid-19 seriously will ever walk into a casino again, and probably not into a restaurant, restroom or hotel room. Wait for the sudden explosion of travel that occurs when cooped up people are either "allowed" to get out, or just say the hell with it and do so anyway. Where's the least practical place to go and celebrate? Bars and... casinos!

The enthusiasm and excitement of getting back in the world again, especially with the onset of warm weather and spring fever, will overwhelm any Nanny State attempt to demand that we behave ourselves.

Fear of corona virus will be no more a consideration than any of the other risks that we face every day. Especially when an opportunity to consider the true facts of this pandemic are documented and published. Don't be in a nursing home. Don't go to a hospital. Don't be in prison. Otherwise? Don't worry. You are safe. Or at least as safe as you ever were in a world that's full of a lot of ways to get sick or die.

I love chocolate.
When first produced by the Aztecs, the food-of-the-gods was in ornate form and served very much like Flags or Guytons in a casino's chip inventory.
The point of all this is simple" Things Change.

Will chips continue? Yes. Too necessary to even consider an overnight transformation to some new fangled system.

Will anyone be worried about a virus a year from now? No.

It will not be overnight, but eventually chips will be phased out.
It may not be for decades. But, automation will eventually catch up with even casinos.
