These are the first
set of chips we ever bought. They are a solid plastic molded
chip. Typically found between .05 and .10 cents ea. The only
advantages to these chips is they are inexpensive (cheap).
They don't look, sound, or feel like casino chips. They can
warp in heat, they stack poorly over 15 or so high. They
offer no security as anyone can bring them to your game.
They are great for your kids to play with.
After selling our
first set to a friend, we purchased a set of the "suited"
chips above. They were advertised as "11.5g clay casino
chips". "Caveat Emptor" (buyer beware)! I have never
since seen these in a casino, nor do these have anything but
plastic molded around a metal slug in the middle. Cut one
open if you can. We did with bolt cutters and a hack saw.
These chips are found everywhere, and we mean everywhere,
between .10 and .20 cents ea. Several plants in China makes
these and sell them by the millions to distributors here in
the states. Though they all look the same, every plant's
product is a little different in sound, color tones, and
quality. So if you buy from two different sources they will
not match exactly. These are tough more indestructible than
concrete. The plastic used is slick and makes it difficult
to stack more than 10 chips high, the quality control is
poor as some chips have high spots that also weakens a large
stack, and they sound like large "washers" when they splash
These chips are
identical to the chips above. Plastic molded around a metal
slug. With everyone selling the above chips, some people are
making new styles to grab attention with multiple colors and
designs. Don't be fooled, they are all plastic molded and
made by the hundreds of thousands. Not unique, not clay and
definitely not casino chips.
These chips are
plastic injection molded with a decal stuck on them. They
allow a creative design to be applied to the chip but they
are all plastic and sound and feel like it.
After we had
accumulated all these chip samples we determined that none
of them were worthy of our game. We have a fantastic table,
the best cards, and are playing for "Real" money, we needed
a "real" casino chip.
All our chips are of the same composition as those used in
casinos all over the world. The only difference is we have
chosen unique graphics and layouts for our designs,
everything else is authentic casino quality. Want to take a
