We are not allowed to play for real money or anything materially exchangeable.
Poker chips may be purchased, but are not redeemable for anything except raffle tickets. They have no cash value*.
There are two types of Poker Chips that will be used during the evening:
MM Poker Chip - used to purchase alcohol and/or exchanged for casino poker chips
Casino Poker Chips ("$1/$5/$10" denominations) - used to play games and enter raffles
MM Poker Chips will be sold for $10 at the Main Booth.
They are exchangeable at the Bar for Casino Poker Chips (alcohol purchase not required). The bar will offer a wide selection of drinks and prices, but only accept MM Poker Chips for payment. The price of your drink will determine the number of Casino Poker Chips you get in return.
You give the bar one MM Poker Chip:
Example #1: You order/receive a beer. The bar "charges you $5" for a beer, and you will also receive an additional $5 in Casino Poker Chips.
Example #2: You order/receive a glass of wine. The bar "charges you $7" for a glass of wine, and you will also receive an additional $3 in Casino Poker Chips.
Example #3: You don't want alcohol. Exchange your MM Poker Chip for $10 in Casino Poker Chips at the bar.
Casino Poker Chips will be used as gambling tokens for free play at casino games. They may be exchanged for raffle tickets at any time.
*Note: Chips have no cash value, but if we don't return the Casino Poker Chips at the end of the night, by exchanging them for raffle prizes, they will charge us. This only applies to Casino Poker Chips and not MM Poker Chips.
