Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9950799A1] The present invention relates generally to an active chip tray (10) nested within a backup chip tray (12). The active and backup chip tray (10 and 12) are somewhat similar in construction each having a floor (18 and 20), respectively, having flutes or grooves in which circular-shaped gaming chips (22 and 24) reside. The active tray (10) is shallower in depth compared to the backup tray (12) so that when the active tray (10) is nested within the backup tray (12) sufficient space is provided beneath the floor (18) of the active tray (10) for the gaming chips (24). Once gaming chips (22) are exhausted or emptied from the active tray (10), the active tray (10) is lifted from the backup tray (12). Further chips (24) can then be obtained form the backup tray (12).
