Casino Chip Sets

Most casinos follow the standard chip colour values with some variations.

Casinos customise their chips in order to avoid duplication of chips, therefore, they sometimes use colours different than those of standard chips.

Usually, chips made of clay or clay mixtures are produced commercially with specific designs for casinos. They are hard to copy and hence maintain the integrity of games in casinos and even save casinos from loses.
