MASHANTUCKET, Conn. (AP) — Foxwoods Resort Casino's gaming chips are going high-tech.
The eastern Connecticut entertainment complex is phasing out the 49 different sets of old chips and replacing them with new discs, each embedded with tiny radio frequency computer chips and bearing individual serial numbers, according to the Norwich Bulletin.
They say that helps the casino keep tabs on the chips and cut back on counterfeiting.
"Tracking the chip gives us a better idea of customer ratings at the table and also assists in chip inventory," said Jackie Mason, director of casino accounting operations at Foxwoods.
Foxwoods, which bills itself the world's largest casino, has more than 10,000 employees and is run by the Mashantucket Pequot tribe.
