    Either Sasquatch or Nessie, considering how often I've seen one.

    Not too many properties have them.

    shifter can probably chime in here. It seems like all higher denomination chips are called something sweet or fruity like pumpkins, chocolates, cranberries, melons, or bananas.

    The ones at MGM are just called grays.

    One pit boss called it a green but I was like it's not green, it's gray. But my host also thinks they look green.

    I heard one guy call them melons because the sides have red and green markings, but nobody else I've asked had heard that.

    So basically there's not really a consensus.

    I asked Dealers and Pit managers at both Caesar's and MGM where they had the $100k chips in the tray what they was called and they all said GRAY. Very few have $100k chips out in the trays.

    Shifter and Natedog666 would be the people to ask.

    I've only held MGM and Caesar's Grays chips so those are the only two I can vouch for.

    I would just call it Soylent Green.

    I think I saw some at the MGM at a Blackjack table. It looked florescent pink and green.
