MASHANTUCKET, CT Foxwoods, the world's largest casino, is replacing their 49 different sets of gaming chips with new discs embedded with radio-frequency computer chips and individual serial numbers.

There are 2 million new computerized chips placed into play since the opening of the MGM Grand at Foxwoods last May. They are similar in design to the old chips with Foxwoods on one side, and either MGM or the WPT World Poker Room logo on the other. If you have held on to the old Foxwoods chips, they cannot be redeemed after January 31st. They will become little more than collector's items.

"Tracking the chip gives us a better idea of customer ratings at the table and also assists in chip inventory," said Jackie Mason, director of casino accounting operations at Foxwoods. Needless to say it cuts back on counterfeiting.
