I don’t see much pron of these chips here. I’m hoping owners will post more pics of these beauty’s. To me Wynn is the cream of the crop, but that’s because I’m influenced by the Wynn in Macau. It’s like the Bellagio for people state side. All the biggest nosebleeds in the world were played there at one point. I still remember many late nights railing huge games and watching Tom Dwan play there.

I’m quite happy to have accumulated ~1000 of these, although without many 25’s.

I’ll take more pics soon but here are a couple initial pics (which I’ve posted in other threads already, but that’s ok).

Another variety is currently available on eBay as a sample set (a few PCF posts have images of these as well). Really nice, too.

Update: Via ChipGuide, I found the 1000 to complete the set (no 5000 listed). So nice!

So, from the Wynn Poker Room Twitter feed, definitely live chips. For poker, it looks like they use the standard casino cash chips plus (at least) two different tournament sets.

But what does that mean? Either an inside employee snag or a player bought-in and skimmed a few chips? Can you just buy-in and walk out with all your chips? Maybe good way to build a tournament set (or wind up in the slammer)!?

Hi Birdcage

All chips are property of the casino so any chip leaving a casino could be seen as stealing.

Unlike cash chips, where if you steal a $5 chip the casino makes a profit. (cost $1 to make and sell for $5) So they don't really care.

But tourney chips are very different. Especially if they are live. They are property of the casino and can only be stolen. (funny that i see ebay allowing selling stolen goods but thats off topic)

In the WSOP if you pocket a chip and you get busted there is a ban for life from all future events and you forefit any buyin and prize money. Also they are stolen property. so strictly speaking there are possible legal charges but i'd never think a casino would go that far.

No casino likes you removing tourney chips and as a result they are rare. That's why they command stupid prices.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. I found this story about a WSOP winner that snagged a chip as a "souvenir". Lifetime ban and title stripped!

That certainly makes acquiring and selling live tournament chips on eBay a very bold move. Wynn could just buy them and begin investigating how they were acquired. Most packages include a return address and eBay readily discloses seller info after a purchase.
