You read that right. The next time you enter a casino with a vile plan of “making quick money”, you better think twice. Sometime around 2005, the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas started placing RFID tags on high value chips. So everything from betting habits of individual players to counterfeit chips can be tracked. Also, it also helps to make chip tallies faster and find out counting mistakes made by dealers. One case in the Bellagio casino that occurred on the 15th of December 2010 involved a robbery of chips worth $ 1.5 million. The RFID tags of those chips were invalidated, reducing the value of each of those chips to zero! Tough luck, eh?
Those chips are not good for health!
