Default Fake Chips

Is it possible to produce authentic-looking casino chips and circulate them in a casino?

Where can I read more about this topic?

Do you think there are fake chips being currently used in major casinos?

it was a thing about a guy who was making counterfit casino chips on the history channel. it was incredible what this guy had to do to produce them. he had to have this giant really expensive machine. he had to determine a specific metal composition that would mimic that of the casino chips. if i'm remmembering right the guy made one heck of a lot of money but i think he ended up getting caught.

best regards,
mr fr0g :D

Yes, but it is also illegal. I don't think they will be very forgiving if they catch you circulating counterfit chips...

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.

I've read they do that at Wynn. I doubt they do it in many smaller places.
