The 5, 25, 100, 500, and 1000 chips seem to be pretty standard. Many casinos, at least at the high limit tables, donít even have the 1 chips and I havenít seen 2.50 chips much since I stopped playing in Tahoe, although I assume they are around in many casinos.

5 Ė red
25 Ė green
100 Ė black
500 Ė purple
1000 Ė yellow yellow

However at Resorts World the new 100 and 500 chips are somewhat similar as the 500 chips include streaks of black mixed in with the mostly purple.


Where there is a lot of discrepancy, is in chip denominations above 1000. For example the 5000 chips vary wildly. At the Golden Nugget, they were (I assume still are) red white and blue, and referred to as ďflags.Ē At Bellagio the 5K chips have been mostly white over the years.

Cosmopolitan too, 5K chips are white.


Treasure Island, 5K chips, mostly white

with some blue and pink.

But at Venetian, 5K are brown, chocolates:


GVR also, pretty much brown, chocolate, but their 5K chip looks pretty flimsy almost fake, with a cartoonesque font used for the $5000:



At Circa, their 5K chips are bright orange:


and they donít even have 25K much, these are called plaques and are rarely out.

25K chips vary wildly too.
At Bellagio they used to be melon colored and referred to as melons, more recently more orangish and referred to as pumpkins.

At Cosmo, 25K are orange


At Venetian 25K chips are a sort of brownish orange. Resorts World also brownish. Wynn brown.


100K chips at most places are a sort of grey, or steel blue (Bellagio Ė over the years these have been steel blue, Venetian grayish).


But, Fluorescent orange 100K at Resorts World.


Still, whatever color they are, whoever invented gambling was smart but whoever invented chips, was a genius. People come up to the high limit tables constantly with cash that is shoved into the drop box that they would probably hesitate to throw down in such quantities on bets were it not first converted to chips.

One thing that makes me feel better is winning stacks and towers of checks I can't even see over.

And here are the 25K chips from Red Rock, which are bright blue!

So I gotta ask, what colors do you consider standard?



$1 - white/light blue
$2.50 - pink
$5 - red
$25 - green
$100 - black
$500 - purple
$1000 - yellow
$5000 - brown

Anything higher than that I personally don't consider to have a "standard" color. Even the $5000s are probably on the fence. Honestly, the $500s and up I'm okay with varying colors, but the Holy Chip Trinity of red, green, and black I consider to be inviolable and it just feels totally wrong when casinos use different colors.

TigerWu, you are right including up to the yellows, but above that there is quite a discrepancy, as noted in my post above.

Brown (chocolates) are the $5K at Venetian, Caesars and at GVR, but many of the rest of the casinos use entirely different colors, such as grayish blue (Resorts World), orange (Circa), mostly white (Bellagio, Cosmopolitan, Wynn, Treasure Island, Golden Nugget).

Very true. Depending on the casino, $5k chips can be chocolates, pumpkins or flags (white with the red and blue stripes). Never seen a $5k chip at RW.

MDawg, Aria is in the flags camp.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
