The Best Poker Chips You Can Buy

June 13, 2011

You have a poker game with the guys every single 30 days and you would want to spice up the settings a bit. What can you do to achieve that? You can have a excellent poker table. The table can possess a turbo slick material so the playing cards should ‘fly’ better. The chairs can be really ‘cozy’ and adjustable for height. The cards can be plastic material and pretty much unbreakable. What’s left? The poker chips.

Poker chips vary in both weight and material types. Poker chips can range from what you may have played with as a kid, up to the 15-gram chips that are the sturdiest you can get. Basically, the prices of the chips will vary with the weight of the chip and its material, plus the customization 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 common on Television, poker become a phenomena. In doing so, it is available to everyone everywhere. But along with the popularity, 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 gals, or you operate a poker room, chips can help make your game a ‘class act’. You can put your own name on the chips, the game rooms 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 decide on, the better good quality poker chips you will get. Obviously, the 100% clay chips are the best, but they are also the most high priced. An all clay set of chips at the 15 gram weight would be the most costly. 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 locations to find which you want.
