Nice! When and where did you obtain this N$ 5,000 - chip? I have never seen it being used at the tables there, although I've not been to Windhoek Country Club (Desert Jewel Casino) in a while.
The Swakopmund Mermaid Casino, on the other hand, did have N$ 5,000 chips at one stage, but I was told that they have not used them in years.
Country Club/Desert Jewel Casino chips can be used at Mermaid Casino, and vice versa.
Due to Covid, all casinos in Namibia were closed in March. The 3 Windhoek casinos are re-opening tomorrow, the Swakopmund casino will unfortunately remain closed for now. Probably till we see a drop in case numbers.
In January, two months before the Covid lock-down, I saw N$ 10,000 chips at Avani Casino Windhoek for the first time. They also introduced N$ 10,000 plaques. It seems the influx of Chinese and Indians into Namibia is leading to growth, higher volumes and demand for higher denomination chips at the local casinos.
