Now you mention Europe I vaguely remember in Belgium they used 2.50 5 10 20 and 50's with Blackjack tables at 5 10 or 20 Euros. I think they had lower and higher ones and plaques at Roulette tables.

I don't know of any Gaming regulation that says you can't take them home....

That痴 not what I said. Once it痴 in a customer痴 hands, it痴 theirs to do what they wish.


I thought there were regulations preventing the casino from selling them, even at face value. It痴 a topic that comes up each year when discussing the Chinese New Year chips.

What do you mean by selling them?

You go to a table or to the cage and get chips. You take them home. Is that what you mean by selling?

Caesars offered their Celine chips at the cage. There was no markup in price.

Even silver strikes were not marked up. You either won them from a machine or, on the rare occasion, you got them at the cage when someone redeemed them for cash.

I never heard of a casino marking up the face value of a chip. If it's happened its news to me and I'd wonder why. The casino makes a profit on every face value chip that's taken home.
