    I don't know if this is the right place for this question...

    MGM is, apparently using Blue Chips..?? If that's correct, I'm curious if anyone knows the 'inside story' behind a casino of that size NOT using Paulsons...??

    anyone?

    If we are talking the blue colored chips with white inserts and a house mold... Then we are talking Paul-Son, not Blue Chip.

    Last time I was there (which was 2 weeks ago) it was Paulson house mold chips. There are some casinos using BCC chips (Sahara, Golden Gate, Stratosphere) and is often a mixed bag with the GPI chips in the rack.

    Disclaimer: I did not see the MGM tournament chips, I only played with the rack chips.
