Yeah that takes a distinguished level of unawareness.

Why not? One chip for the whole but in? No change?

So you don't actually know what's good for the game and what slows it down. Got it.

Re: Taking home chips

I will typically take chips with me when I am staying at a motel and am planning to play the next day at that casino. But these are usually $100 and $25 chips. I treat them like cash and use them to buy into tournaments which is what I usually play.

I don't take chips home with me though. I have three $1 chips from the Borgota at home for like 2 years now. Every time I go there I forget to take them with me...

what would it matter if someone took all the $1 chips if the min bet is $10?

Re: Taking home chips

If I notice that the line is long, I'll try to color up and take the chips with me. Not able to do that at every table every time though (just got a fill or fill on the way).

Re: Taking home chips

From strictly a legal point of view - the chips are the casino's property and are a "demand note" that is not to leave the premises. This comes up from time to time in chip collector's blogs. Often a collector wants to obtain a mint condition full rack of chips and will sell for a profit on the chip collector market someday in the future.

That being said - this is almost never enforced but you are subject to risk if they casino wants to play hard ball - the most desired chips are the $2.50 from the black jack table and can bring up to double the face value of absolutely mint chips on a discontinued chip.
