mr fr0g :D
He was producing slot slugs,not table chips. It would be much easier to do casino chips,but the penalty if you are caught is most likely prohibitive.
Say you could make some $5 chips,you'd need to pass 10,000 of them to make about $48,000.One slip-up and you'd spend a year of your life in jail.
The risk to reward is whacked.Once you got into higher value chips,the chances of passing them up would diminish.
