Poker has been around for centuries around the world and it has been played with money since then. Almost everyone in the US and in several other parts of the world would be aware about the colourful chips that are used for playing poker. These chips actually stand for money. Casinos would use these chips to represent money on the poker tables so that it would be easier for the players and the dealer to handle it. Any player who wants to play a game of poker in a casino would first have to purchase some chips which can be used for betting. These chips are also known as poker money.
