Types of Las Vegas Poker Chips
There are a few different types of Las Vegas Poker chips that you are going to see. First off, there are the chips that are used at tables such as Pai Gow Poker and other such table games. These are going to have varying values that are represented by their color and the number on the front. These are the chips that are designed to be monitored and nearly impossible to counterfeit.
The other type of chip is the one that you see at the designated Hold Em and Stud tables. These are going to be a little less intricate and only hold a value of a dollar. The value is too low for many people to risk using fake chips plus many casinos make you color in at the table prior to joining and as you leave. Bringing in a decent amount of dollar chips is nearly impossible. This is why these chips are plainer but still promote the casino and hold monetary value.
