For table games like craps, do casinos usually offer chips valued at $50 each? Do all casinos have $50 chips? I have seen increments like $5, $10, and $25, but I don't remember seeing a $50 chip.

For roulette, can you get $50 chips? Also, for roulette can you use the same roulette chips when placing inside vs. outside bets? Can you just use the regular casino chips when playing roulette? Would this be wise to do if you know where you are betting, so others don't take your chips?

When buying roulette chips, can you designate any amount of money per chip you would like? For example, can I say I want my chips to be $30 each and give them $300 for ten? Do roulette chips have to be handed out in stacks of twenty? So, would I have to give $600 for 20 chips?

1. No, usually it goes $25 (green) to $100 (black)
2. No.
3. Roulette, probably depends, but Iíve never asked for $50 and rarely play Roulette. I do know the croupier will sometimes ask how much you want the chips to be worth, so maybe you could choose $50.
4. Yes, you use the same chips for all Roulette bets.
5. You can sometimes use the regular chips, generally if youíre betting a higher denomination and are the only one at the table betting that. Iíve seen it, anyway, and have only rarely played Roulette.
6. The roulette chips are different colors, so there is no question as to which chips are yours.
7. I think so. I know they ask, but Iím not sure if they wouldnít allow certain amounts. Maybe theyíd let you go $30, something like $27 I would doubt.
8. Roulette chips are usually broken down to stacks of twenty, but you can buy fewer than twenty, at least, Iíve seen people do it.

In the gamblibg world, a $50 bill is considered bad luck. I would guess part of the reason why there are no $50 chips isfor that reason. But more importantly, it's probably not cost effective, getting chips made are expensive. Why pay for something when essentially a casino has other denominations that can equate to 50.

A $50 chip simply isn't needed. Years ago, $2.50 chips were semi-common but are fairly rare these days.

So if you want to bet $25 on a few straight up numbers and $1,000 on a dozens bet, you'd have all your roulette chips equal to $25 and when you bet $1000 you'd need 2 stacks of 20 chips. What's to keep the casino from saying your chips aren't worth $25 a piece when you cash in?

A $25 chip would be placed on a chip of your color to indicate the value which is placed where everyone can see.

Casinos with poker rooms might even have fifty cent chips, $2 and $3 chips.

I've never seen a $50 chip.
