All types of Roulette are played with multicoloured chips and every player has got chips of a certain colour that makes the procedure of doing bets much easier. Usually all the chips have the same denomination(value), so different colours just simplify the process for croupier to understand, which bets belong to which players.

Such kind of chips is usually bought of a dealer on a specific Roulette table and not used in other games. After the player has finished the game his chips are exchanged either for money or traditional cash chips, which can be changed at cashiers desk. In European casinos you can find roulette tables with 2 playing fields and one wheel in the centre. Very often these two fields have got different limits of bets.
