This coming March my dear wife and I are taking our first cruise on Celebrity. My question is, what is the minimum value of the color chips on the roulette tables? Carnival and Princess it is $1.00, but on NCL it was $2.00.

I'm not a huge roulette player, but on most ship, the colour value is $1, but the minimum but will vary. I'm not aware of any ship that will let you play $1 at a time. I would think that $5 is standard, and that you can either put 5 $1 chips on one spot or split them.

I only blackjack, so I can only tell you what I know about that game. The minimum chip value is a $1, but the minimum bets are $5. Though occasionally the minimum bets are $10. It just depends on the evening I suppose.

Hi Deerby,

 

Unless something has changed recently, I'm fairly certain the chips are $1.00, with the minimum bet of $5. Hope this is helpful !

You can choose how much you want your chip to be worth, the minimum at the tables on the Summit (at least when I looked) was 1.00. So you could buy a color and its your call what its value will be.

 

I took this from a website that probably explains it better than I can…

 

An interesting aspect of roulette is how the game’s chips work. Unlike other table games in the casino, roulette chips have no inherent denomination or value. What you “buy-in” for is what a given chip is worth. Your chip could be worth $1 or $100. Your dealer keeps track of your chip value, and different players at a table could be playing with chips of different values, all at the same time.

 

I think the OP wanted to know what the minimum amount of money he can choose his chips to be. I remember many years ago in Las Vegas you could play 50 cent chips but haven't seen that in ages.
