The Best Poker Chips You Can Buy

May 24, 2011

You have a game with the group every single few months and you would want to spice up the conditions a bit. What can you do to accomplish that? You can have a good poker table. The table can have a super slick fabric so the playing cards could ‘fly’ better. The chairs can be truly ‘comfy’ and adjustable for height. The cards can be plastic and virtually unbreakable. What’s still left? The poker chips.

Poker chips vary in both weight and syle. Poker chips can range from what you may have fooled with as a kid, up to the 15-gram chips that are the heaviest you can get. Naturally, the cost of the chips will vary with the weight of the chip and its material, plus the personalization on the chips.

Yes, you heard correctly, the design on the chip. Today, with the W.S.O.P. and the W.P.T having become so well-liked on Television, poker exploded across the world. In doing so, it is available to everyone everywhere. But along with the reputation, casino supply companies and discount casino gear warehouses have popped up all over the place to help the community fulfill their thirst for Texas Hold ‘Em.

So, if you are looking to upgrade your poker game with the group, or you operate a gaming company, chips can help make your game a ‘class act’. You can put your own name on the chips, the company’s name, or any name you like. With that in mind, there are many different designs on the chips and the best way to find out is to shop them and narrow down the one you really want. Then you have to choose what weight chips you want to use.

Usually the higher gram you opt for, the better quality poker chips you will get. Normally, the 100% clay chips are the best, but they are also the most expensive. An all clay set of chips at the 15 gram weight would be the most high-priced. When you throw in personalization with your own logo or name, or both, and you can have a pretty pricey chip set.

Also the weight is where the ‘casino feeling’ comes from. Heavier chips feel more like you are actually playing in a casino. So the best thing to do now, is to go online and check them out. Just remember, the heavier the better, put a simple design on them for ease of reading, and get a case to keep them in. Google casino supply locations or low cost casino gear sites to find which you want.
