Nickel (Gambling term)

In gambling, a nickel is a term used to refer to a bet of $500. It is called a “nickel” because the denomination of the US nickel coin is five cents, and $500 is a large multiple of that amount. It is generally used in high stakes games where large bets are common, such as in high roller rooms or high stakes tournaments.
