Casino Tokens- What are they?
Casino tokens, also referred to as cheques, casino chips, gaming chips, and checks, are used instead of currency in casinos while gambling.
Slot machines use casino tokens made out of metal, whereas table games use colored, molded clay metal casino chips. In addition to this, casino tokens are primarily used as toy currencies or play money in tournament games and casual games.
How are casino tokens different from casino plaques?
While casino tokens deal with lower denominated values, gaming plaques are used while dealing with high denomination values that are not available in or shown in the player’s chipset.
In addition, casino tokens are usually circular made out of metal, whereas casino plaques are usually rectangular made out of ceramic that consists of serial numbers.
How are casino tokens used precisely?
As we already know, tokens are used in casinos instead of money; that means tokens can be exchanged with cash in casinos though there’s no value for them outside the business. The reason why tokens were chosen to serve this purpose was their structure, color, shape, size, patterns, just like the coins in currency.
They make it easier for the cashier and the players without creating any sorts of confusion between them. Metal tokens are probably avoided in recent times and are replaced with pre-paid cards or paper receipts.
