A lot of things are good on theory and on theory only. I agree that it would be a nightmare to enforce it and it will piss off the whales you are luring into the casino.

Are the casinos required to disclose which chip-tracking features they are using?

By the way, the story on these Rolls: turns out they belong to a player. I met the player, heard the story, and confirmed it.

They were all shipped in from out of state. He is not a local.

WHY - and what the player gets out of having his collection displayed at RW, I don't know yet.


Probably the cheapest place for him to park them safely? If someone owns that many Rolls, it's not as if the owner drives one on Sundays, another on Modays, a third on Tuesdays, and so on - and in that case, why keep them covered up somewhere when they can be stylin' and profilin' on the Vegas strip?

Embedding an RFID chip in a high denomination casino chip allows the chip to be easily scanned to determine if it is counterfeit, or even if it was previously stolen and later attempted to be redeemed.

I think a VP can manage to keep a secret from a reporter,
even if a floorperson disclosed the information to his favorite player.

Fair. Iím inclined to think the pit boss was wrong based on my experience with pit bosses.

Got it. An "official" response via email is far less reliable than "my pit bro told me". Makes a lotta sense.

It's amazing the things that are out there that Mdawg finds out about.



The pitboss knew about the feature, the VP confirmed the capability, and MDawg wrote about it earlier in this thread.

The industry reporter had never heard of such a thing.

How would MDawg have known about the feature, if not disclosed to him by the pitboss?

Are you assuming that the chips must be scanned individually?

Could they be automatically scanned as part of a stack,
whether in the dealer's rack or on the player's betting spot?



Have you ever played a table game? Have you watched a dealer collect bets and pay bets?

Now add in a scan of each chip taken from each player and a scan of each chip paid to each player?

Really coach. You need to see how bets are made and collected and paid.
