Chips and tokens must be designed, manufactured, and constructed in compliance with all applicable statutes, rules, and policies of the United States, South Dakota, and other states to prevent counterfeiting of the chips or tokens. Chips and tokens must not resemble any current or past coinage of the United States or any other nation.

In addition to other specifications that the executive secretary may approve, the following must appear on the chip or token:

(1) The name of the issuing establishment must be inscribed on each side of a chip or token;
(2) The city in which the establishment is located must be inscribed on one side of the chip or token;
(3) The value of the chip or token must be inscribed on each side of a chip or token; and
(4) A chip must be designed so that when stacked with chips and tokens of other denominations and viewed on closed-circuit, black-and-white television, the denomination of the chip may be distinguished from that of the other chips and tokens in the stack.
