    Official Casino Poker Chip Weights

    I'm looking at buying clear lammers to bring to the craps rail because I keep counting chips. I might have found 50 for $9 on Amazon.

    The other day I had about 60 chips to take away from the craps table without coloring up (the table was busy and coloring up is so disruptive sometimes), so I just stuffed them in my hoodie sweater pockets and took them to the cage. So I'm looking at buying some chip racks with tops on them so if I need to take a bunch of chips to another table, it would be easy and I could play from the rack at some other tables. So that brings me to the question of, are these racks any good for casino chips? I have a casino chip at home that weighs 9 grams and is 39 mm in diameter. These racks being sold don't mention what size chips they're made for, and they tend to mess the order up so the racks break in the mail or they send only tops and no bottoms, or they send 5 instead of 10. Non-casino (home game) chips are a different size than casino chips, so these racks on Amazon may cater to them instead.

    Chips at a craps table are not all the same diameter.

    THIS is a CLASSIC example of WHY THIS forum - particularly its' members - are LESS than HONEST -

    BS777 - having written a book on craps - the " Ins and Outs " as he professes fails to disclose information that is readily available to
    "KNOWLEDGEABLE "/ " EXPERIENCED " players -

    It is beyond my understanding /comprehension as to WHY 777 does NOT answer this question HONESTLY and / or FULLY -

    Casino chips, from the lowest denomination - be it $0.25, $0.50, $1., - up to and including the $500 chip are the SAME DIAMETER !

    Casino chips from $1,000 and up are a larger diameter that the $500 and below chips !

    Now 777 - how HARD was THAT to give an educated answer ?

    Or perhaps you are looking to sell more of your books ?

    $...eE..$.

    Yeah those $1 / $5 chips can become a nuisance to stick in your pocket -

    That's why TDVegas plays the bubble -

    Does not have to contend with chips - only pieces of paper !

    Try Gambler's Warehouse or Spinetti's in Vegas for your casino paraphernalia needs !

    People complaining that they can't cash their $1000 chips on a different day unless the cage can get surveillance to find the footage of you winning the chip.

    That is due to increased money laundering reporting requirements that went into effect. I believe they started July 1 2016.

    Same is true on the opposite ends on buyins. If you're making multiple small buyins or going over whatever they set as their daily threshold you either have to provide Id such as a players card or fill out a W9.

    If you refuse when asked you'll get kicked out.

    To get back to the original post why would you want to bring your own chip tray? They'll let you use one if you ask.

    If you bring your own, I only see bad things happening. Make sure it's marked really, really well as being yours so a wannabe Barney Fife doesn't cuff and stuff you for stealing one of theirs.

    If you table hop without coloring that many chips very often you'll get marked in the system as a ratholer and your ratings will go way down.

    This is Barney,

    MR. CC post reminded me of my late third wife. When we first met she asked me if I had a pumpkin in my pocket or was I just happy to see her. I told her neither, I unzipped my coat and pulled out a goat to her surprise.

    If your goats had RFID chips, you’d always know their whereabouts.

    But maybe it’s better, you don’t?

    The guy needs to get some, you know, "CARGO PANTS". You show up at the table with chip trays, you'll be laughed out the joint. They're real convenient to carry around too. Chip tray, ha, ha, ha, gotta be TD. :D
