    I just booked my offer at Cosmo with $450 in promo chips (one time use) for June. Originally, I was going to bet it all in one hand in baccarat or roulette (black/red). Then I thought about placing 18 $25 chips on numbers in roulette (single 0). If I put an extra $25 chip from my pocket, that's 19 units placed over 37 spots. I would have a >50% chance to win $875 minus my $25, total $850.

    What do you think about this strategy for a quick bet with promo chips? I'm not a big roulette player.

    These promo chips always confuse me. Binions gave me $5 last year so I'm no expert here...

    If you put them all on black and win do you get $900 or $450 back? I think you only get $450 back. The casino keeps the promo chips. Is this how it works?

    If you put the promo chips on a number, you'd get 35x payout if they let you make such a bet. Can you bet the inside with promo chips? Betting the inside sounds like a lot more fun and profitable. Instead of betting them all at once, you could bet them on spin at a time a maybe hit more than once.

    Check the promo chips. I have never looked at my Cosmo chips or asked, but some places you can only make even money bets (and BJ).

    I was hoping that wasn't the case. I'll ask when I arrive to the Cosmo. Thanks for the info.
