Another meaning

There is also one more place where this term could be used in relation to poker or to be more precise, casinos. The world-famous luxury resort and casino, the Bellagio in Las Vegas is known for its extravagant services and its casino is known to host high stakes poker. The term ‘cranberry’ in this context is a slang used to refer to the $25,000 chips in the casino, due to the maroon colour of the chip that resembles the shade of cranberry.
