I think your standards (with Dodger's $25 correction) are correct for the "real" casinos (Vegas and Reno etc), but the local places all have different colors.
I think perhaps white chips have been phased out come to think of it, because I think the $1 chips were maybe yellow up in Reno a few month's back (I know they weren't white).
DJ's uses yellow $1, and I think some green or brown chips for $5
The Derby uses yellow for $1, orange for $2, pink for $3 and brown for $5
Rancho's uses blue for $1, red for $5
Cache Creek uses yellow for $1, red for $5, green for $25
Commerce (In LA) uses a blue chip for $1
Looks like you already got your answer but just as an FYI, the Creek uses:
Never had the luxury of cashing out anything higher than $500 chips so this is as high as I can tell you.
As far as I know only Atlantic City casinos use standard colors for chips (see below):
Q: AC1 What is the difference between craps in Atlantic City and other places? (3/99)
A: AC1 The New Jersey Casino Control Commission heavily regulates casinos to make things consistent among the properties. Because of CCC regulations:
- There is no 'Big 6/8' bet. Any bet on the 6 or 8 (except line bets) must be place bets.
- Put bets are not allowed. Most dealers don't even know what a put bet is.
- Chips are standard colors and size for all casinos:
$2.50 Pink - used for BJ, not actively at dice
$10 Blue - commemorative chips
$20 Yellow - used for Baccarat & Pai Gow Poker, not actively at dice
$1,000 Orange - oversized
$5,000 Gray - oversized
$10,000 Numbered plaque - never(?) used at craps table
Unlike in Vegas, there are no special oversized chips from the Baccarat tables; one size fits all.
The $5, $25, $100 and $500 chips in Las Vegas are the same colors as AC. I can't say about anything higher than $500 since I never held any, but my best guess the Vegas $1000 is yellow and $5000 is brown (chocolate chip). Most California card clubs use blue for $1 (some use gray) and I think most Vegas casinos use white for $1. A lot of Cal clubs use white (oversized) for $100. Many Cal clubs use green for $2 and yellow for $5. Due to the limited amount of casinos I played in Vegas I haven't seen $2 chips used. I have seen $10 chips in Commerce Casino in L.A. which is orange. Bellagio also uses $10 but I don't remember what color they were.
Anyway, look for my comments in the other topic under BK's "1000 chips and casino style case for sale!!!"
