§ 603a.5. Roulette chips; permitted uses, inventory and impressment.

 (a)  Each Roulette chip shall be assigned to a particular Roulette table and be issued and used for gaming at that table only. All Roulette chips utilized at a particular Roulette table must have the same design, insert or symbol as required under §  603a.4(b)(2) (relating to Roulette chips; physical characteristics). A certificate holder or any employee thereof may not knowingly allow a patron to remove a Roulette chip from the Roulette table at which it was issued.

 (b)  A patron at a Roulette table may not be issued or permitted to game with Roulette chips that are identical in color and design to any Roulette chip issued to any other patron at the same table. When a patron purchases Roulette chips, a Roulette chip of the same color and design shall be placed in a slot or receptacle attached to the outer rim of the Roulette wheel or in another device or location approved by the Bureau of Casino Compliance in accordance with §  601a.10(g) (relating to approval of table game layouts, signage and equipment). At that time, a marker button denoting the value of a stack of 20 Roulette chips of the same color and design shall be placed in the slot, receptacle or other device. For example, a marker button with 100 imprinted on it would be placed in the receptacle to designate that, during the patron’s play on that occasion, the Roulette chips of that color and design are each worth $5.

 (c)  An impressment of the Roulette chips assigned to each Roulette table shall be completed by a floorperson or above at least once every 3 months as specified in the certificate holder’s internal controls required under §  465a.2 (relating to internal control systems and audit protocols). The certificate holder shall record the results of the impressment in the chip inventory ledger required under §  603a.11 (relating to receipt of gaming chips or plaques from a manufacturer or supplier; inventory, security, storage and destruction of chips and plaques).

 (d)  If additional roulette chips are required to restore the impress, the floorperson or above shall complete a Roulette Chip Impressment Form. The completed Roulette Chip Impressment Form shall be maintained by the accounting department and contain the following, at a minimum:

   (1)  The date and time of preparation.

   (2)  The design schematic of the chip including its primary color and the applicable table number.

   (3)  The number of Roulette chips needed to restore the impress.

   (4)  The signature of the floorperson or above who completes the Roulette Chip Impressment Form and the impressment for the table.

   (5)  The signature of the main bank cashier or chip bank cashier who issued the Roulette chips to restore the impress.

 (e)  Discrepancies in the impressment shall immediately be reported to the casino compliance representatives. The discrepancy report must include, at a minimum, the following information for each Roulette chip color and design:

   (1)  The balance on hand at the beginning of the 3-month period.

   (2)  The number of Roulette chips distributed to the Roulette table during the 3-month period.

   (3)  The number of Roulette chips returned to inventory during the 3-month period.

   (4)  The balance on hand at the end of the 3-month period.
