Promotional, Match-Play, and Non-Negotiable Chips.


Promotional, match-play, and non-negotiable chip values and usage will be discussed on this page. Let’s take a closer look at each of these chips first.

Chips for Match-Play

Promotional chips are the same as match-play, except that the player must wager real money to participate. In many cases, the chips in question are coupons found in coloring books. In the event of a push, the player will often maintain a match-play chip. Blackjack’s rules can be difficult to understand. On a cash bet, a blackjack will always pay 3 to 2, but on a match-play chance, it may only pay even money. Spending three times as much for each is, in my opinion, the standard. Players who double or split must normally match only the cash wager half. However, this isn’t always the case. Most match-play chips can only be used on games where the stakes are set at even money, such as blackjack.

Chips with a Purpose

Promotional Chips can only be used on a single wager. To encourage players to return to the casino, the casino mails out these chips. Regardless of the wager’s outcome, the player forfeits the promotional chip. If the player wins, he keeps only his winnings. It’s common for a tie to result in the player keeping the chip. When playing blackjack, players can double or split their bet using real or virtual money. On even money bets, such as blackjack, promotional chips are often only allowed to be redeemed for cash.

Chips that can’t be traded

“Non-neg” chips are similar to genuine chips, except that the player can’t cash them in. Cashable chips are used to pay out winnings from these chips, while the player keeps the non-neg chip. These can be played in various ways, and there are usually no rules. In high-limit baccarat rooms in Macau, these chips are commonly referred to as “dead chips.”

The following table illustrates the relative worth of various chips in different games and wagers. There are percentages attached to the chip’s actual face value. In the event of a push, the table thinks that the player retains all of their chips. Other blackjack rules are as follows.

  • There are six decks in total.
  • After a split, a double is allowed.
  • Aces may be resplit.
  • Giving up is not an option.
  • All chips are paid 3 to 2 in blackjack.
  • Double or split only the cash component of a stake is permitted on match play.
