Secure casino

The security features of casino chips are numerous. Artwork is of a very high resolution or of photographic quality. Custom color combinations on the chip edge are usually distinctive to a particular casino. UV markings can be made on the inlay. Certain chips incorporate RFID technology, such as those at the new Wynn Casino in Las Vegas. Maker's marks, such as Paulson's top hat and cane, are also difficult to reproduce. Each casino has a unique set of chips, even if the casino is part of a larger company. This distinguishes a casino's chips from others, since each chip and token on the gaming floor has to be backed up with the appropriate amount of cash. In addition, with the exception of Nevada, casinos are not permitted to honor another casino's chips.

Counterfeit chips are rare. High levels of surveillance, along with staff familiarity with chip design and coloring, make passing fake chips difficult. Casinos, though, are prepared for this situation. According to one report, a Canadian casino removed all chips from the gaming floor and replaced them with new sets with alternative markings, which resulted in the arrest of the attempted counterfeiters. All states require that casinos have a set of chips in reserve with alternate markings, though they may not be required to have exactly the same number of reserve chips as they do on the floor.

Casino chips used in tournaments are usually much cheaper and much simpler in design. Because the chips have no cash value, usually chips are designed with a single color (usually differing in shade or tone from the version on the casino floor), a smaller diameter, and a basic mark on the interior to distinguish denominations; however, at certain events (such as the World Series of Poker or other televised poker), chips approach quality levels of chips on the floor.

Read the Pay Tables and this will absolutely give an idea about the frequency that the machine returns a winner. If you see that there are a lot of combinations that return smaller wins, then this machine will usually have a larger hit frequency than one that has fewer captivating combinations that pay back larger wins.  Always use your Player Card. Some casinos will offer cash back for your play. Below given are few things which will help you playing safe in casinos.

Safety tips

  • Manage your Money - Do not bring money t the casino that you need for other operating cost. If you can’t afford to lose it then you shouldn’t be playing it in the casino. Break you casino bankroll down into several playing sessions. Don’t risk it all in one playing session.
  • Lock Up a Profit - When you hit a jackpot, make sure that you “lock up” a profit. Take a small initial playing stakes and a little profit and set it aside. Then play with a small percentage of you winnings. There is nothing worse than the feeling of being a winner and then giving back all your winnings to the casino. I recommend taking a little break after a hitting a jackpot. Savor the win and enjoy that winning feeling.
  • Cashing Out - After completing playing, make sure that you take all your coins from the tray or your voucher ticket from the machine. Collect your personal belongings. Go directly to the cage. Don’t walk around with a bucket of coins. They can be spilled or lost if you set them down. If you are playing a coinless machine that pays you with a paper voucher make sure you cash it in. Some of these have an expiration date making them worthless after a certain period of time.
  • Slow Down - While playing with the slot machines slow down since there are no prizes for the player hitting the spin button the fastest. Don’t play more than one machine at a time. Playing more than one machine just exposes you more to the house edge. In the long run you will just lose your money faster.
