In the context of gambling, the term nickel refers to a casino chip that carries a value of $5 USD. The chip takes its name from the American 5¢ ($0.05) coin. 

Another term for this chip is a «Red». This name comes from the fact that, traditionally, $5 casino chips were red in color. Nowadays, this is not always the case as manufacturers offer casinos and home gamblers a wide variety of chip color choices.

White, red, and blue chips are associated with low rollers as they are most often used for placing small bets.

Classic Casino Chip Colors:

  • $1: White
  • $5: Red
  • $10: Blue
  • $20: Grey
  • $25: Green
  • $50: Orange
  • $100: Black


  • A $5 USD casino chip.
