lol.. in vegas the $1000 chips are called bananas because they're yellow.
it looked like it's the same size as all the smaller chips.

i wonder why nj/conn broke from the Vegas standard at $1000? and why oversized?



I just assumed anything $1000 and over is over sized to announce "hey look at me, I'm a high value chip"...no chance a dealer or a cashier makes a mistake with one.

$5000 and over is frequently larger sized in Vegas as well, I believe. I've had one in my possession a few times...

hm.. i thought yellow was the standard color for $1000 chips. guess only in Vegas?
Purple still $500?



AC had $20 yellow chips. They were used at the Bac tables.

The craps table didn't like it when you used them. They had no place to put them if you lost it.

I just got an email from MD live about this. The thing I'm most excited about - they mentioned pai gow tiles as part of the 122 tables! It'll be great to have an option only an hr away!

When playing BJ in AC players would sometimes bring the $20 yellow's with them to the BJ table. They would color them up as fast as possible and convert them to red or green. Then they would linger in the tray. Eventually the dealer would set aside $20 worth of tokes and then drop the $20 chips just to get them out of the tray.

And the original reason I came here: Perryville opening tables March 7th. Md Live April 14th. Ocean Downs no time in near future apparently.

Check out Richard Marcus' book American Roulette for quite a bit of insight.

Quote: Amazon Book Description


In American Roulette, Richard Marcus tells his never-before-heard story, of ripping off casinos. The book follows Marcus, along with several of the world's great professional casino cheaters, as he travels from Las Vegas to London and Monte Carlo, pilfering large sums of money from casinos by performing sleight of hand magic tricks with gaming chips.



Emphasis mine.

It looks like all the tables are open today, a day earlier than planned. The casino posted some pictures on Facebook....considering it's only 12 house-banked table games and 8 poker tables, it doesn't look too bad. From the pictures I saw, it looks like craps is 3-4-5X odds, 00 roulette (not like I really expected single 0 roulette outside a high limit room), and blackjack is 3:2, stand all 17's.

Thursday the 11th, 12 AM, still seems to be the time and day they are promoting. Maybe you are seeing they are ready to go on Facebook [or did you actually go?]
