THE COLOR OF POKER MONEY

"What's that father?" a little boy once asked his father. "Can I play with them?"

The father replied, "No, son, it is not a toy! It is money, my boy!" The boy hurried off to play outside, though, wondering why his father considered those colorful chips as money.

For example, a player who wants to play poker has to buy some chips to be used when betting. And because this is the kind of money that is being used during a game in the casino, particularly poker, others eventually call it poker money.
