Chips are the currency of casinos and poker games around the world. Go to any regular casino and you will see more than just a few chips. Even the sound they make when they chime with each other is as timeless as the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. There’s a lot of money in Vegas, but it all starts with those little round chips that circulate around the casino floor. So why do casinos use chips instead of cash? At first, you may find it easier to deal with cold cash. There would be no need to constantly deposit and withdraw money. The casino would not have to hire cashiers just to exchange chips for cash. Things would get easier, right?
