- In card games, you can not place a Golden Chip and regular chips on the same bet position simultaneously. However, you are welcome to mix a Golden Chip with a Real Money bet in all Roulette games.

In the case of a tie or push, your bet Golden Chip will be returned to you.
The La Partage rule used in Premium French Roulette games also applies for Golden Chip bets. If you bet a Golden Chip in Premium French Roulette and the spin outcome is zero, then half of the wagered Golden Chip value will be awarded to you.
Note that if the wagered Golden Chip value is not equally divisible, then the amount paid out to you will be rounded down to the nearest cent. For example, if you have wagered a Golden Chip worth 5 cents and the spin outcome is zero, then 2 cents of the wagered Golden Chip value will be awarded to you.
When your Golden Chip bet wins, the value of the winning Golden Chip is deducted from your win amount.
