It's All About the Benjamins

The exact origin of the superstition is unknown, but it would be extremely rare to see a $50 bill (USD) distributed at a casino cage or used by a poker player to buy into a tournament or cash game.

In Britain, this superstition is less useful since 50-pound notes are the largest denomination note in circulation.
