Roll to win craps by Aruze gaming is craps without chips.

Shoot to win craps is bubble craps without chips.

These games find a niche. Whether the current situation transforms us into a chip less casino....I doubt it but I wouldn’t fight it.



It really comes down to this: do you really want to handle filthy dirty disgusting chips?

I can definitely see there being an increasing niche way before it totally takes over. Either way, you are onto something Alan.

Versus a computer terminal?

Are the terminals, where the same terminal is getting constantly touched by different people, really going to be regularly thoroughly sanitized and significantly better? Maybe for a short period of time, same with they may clean chips regularly for a short period of time but won’t last. If like me you’ve noticed that the same bartop video machine can have the exact same buttons stick for months at a time and never get cleaned unless you do it yourself, you know that chipless terminals would not really be any cleaner or safer once things go back to “normal.”

When I think about casino chips this vivid memory hits me: I was in the men's room at the Bicycle Casino near LA. I finished my business and I was washing my hands. In the mirror in front of me I see a guy come out of the toilet stall WITH A CHIP CLENCHED BETWEEN HIS TEETH. He doesn't stop to wash his hands and just walks out.

How many things are just wrong? No hand washing. Chip in mouth.

Every time I finish play in a casino I always wash my hands. And I can never get the chip in mouth image out of my mind.

And some of you put those chips in your pockets and bring them home?

Yuck.

Good question

When I use ATMs now I use a tissue to touch the buttons.

Who says it must be linked to your player's card? It can be completely anonymous just as play at any slot machine.



I was using the players card as an example as casinos have been known to make mistakes towards posting accounts.

You do the same thing with currency.

I've seen people chew currency. I've seen one poker player chew and swallow the pocket Kings he lost with in a poker room. It got stuck in his throat and he was using a coat hanger to get it out.

Someone who is willing to risk their health to get their gambling fix is concerned at germs on a chip?
