Does blackjack have its own chips, don't they just use the casino standard? And the casino standard would depend on the highest value games, my local casino doesn't have anything over 500 dollar chips, at least on the general floor, because the highest value games are 2000 dollars, for all games I think. For blackjack it is 1000 dollars for the max bet. Maybe in the VIP room they have higher chips for the bigger games.

Could be different here, Adelaide casino uses a sort of yellow colour for 10 dollar chips instead of blue like in the movies.

Speaking of movies, are the thousand dollar chips really bigger than normal? And those passport sized gold slabs they had in Casino Royal, has anyone here ever actually had something as high value as that?

all the $1000 chips I have seen are yellow and the same size and weight as standard clay chips.

However, I don't think there is any rule of standardization that requires certain denominations be specific colors - so they could easily be different from casino to casino.

I thought they were typically interchangable between other similar table games, including craps. But I do know that the $2.50 are somewhat unique to blackjack (definitely won't let you use them on the dice table).

good luck

I've seen yellow chips in Vegas that were $1000, same size as a standard chip. I've also seen $1000 orange chips in Indiana that were larger than all the other chips.

I see yellows and oranges for 1000 dollar chips.

In general, I also see greys for 5000 dollar chips.
But then I have also seen brown for 5000 dollar chips.
