    Default Promotional chips

    In the old days, when I gambled more heavily (and such promotions were more prevalent), I used to obtain promotional chips, up the three thousand dollars worth at a time. These were chips that had no direct redeemable value, but that I could play with without placing any regular chips alongside them.

    Promotional chips are good for one hand only - win or lose. Lose, obviously, the disappear. Win, you are paid with regular chips. So, play a hand with a hundred dollar promotional chip, win, and now you have $100. real dollars (in the form of a casino regular black $100. chip).

    I've never had any luck with these chips in the past, by the time the casino handed them to me I was usually in a do or die mode, stuck in the hole pretty far, "chasing," and I ended up simply losing the promotional chips - fast.

    For the first time since I resumed gaming in 2018, a casino is offering me promotional chips - the Palms is offering me $400. in promotional chips (plus the usual comp'ed suite, and free food), if we stay there before January 5th - essentially, a New Year's invitation. We may just take them up on it.

    The offer mentions just $100. in food but my host there always comp's off all the food charges on my bill. Typically these types of offers are auto generated, just to get you in the door, and the host then upgrades you (if your play warrants it, as mine does), to the level befitting your play.
