Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

The Nevada Jacks are a somewhat Chipco-like chip. The differences between them and other ceramics I have used is that they have super-sharp edges, and a surface that I can only describe as being like a fine metal file. This surface does help them stack nicely, but it's not like any other chip I've seen.

Get samples if you are not sure.

Some pronouns have intensive purposes. I have used them myself.

That's just cause I'm not of legal age to participate in casino events, so all I've experienced are sh*tty Wal-Mart sets and anything ordered offline.

Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

I have 200 -.25 Neveda Jack chip that I'm selling. I paid .45 cent each willing to let them go for .25cent each. Used them for like 6 months no chip or dirt on them, they look like new. They are ceramic sound real good better than some other so called ceramic I've seen. pm if your interested we can make arrangements.

i have to agree with this post. i have a set of nevada jacks that start with the .25 cent denomination (even though the color is pink) and i love the set. i only use this set for cash games. it has denominations from .25 cents up to $25 (they are green).

and the ceramic sound gives the set something of a different feel. check em out.

Lol your post provoked me to solve my own problem! Haha.

Any others?
One thing we do with the Nevada Jacks is, our set has denominations of $25 -> $1000, and when we play cash we use the dollar amount / 100 - so a $25 chip is a quarter, up to $1000 chip being $10. If I had my druthers I'd have a seperate cash set or lower denominations, but if you can't find a set you like with the denominations you want, something like this works.

Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

At .10 each, you are paying about .05 too much per chip, imo.

Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

Seems like it's pretty cheap.. also that's probably the design I'm going to go with

Have you seen 'em cheaper in your travels?

It's a matter of taste. Those are not much better than Walmart chips. Compare those prices.

These are .17 each, and much nicer, in my opinion. You might find them cheaper elsewhere. http://www.discountcasinogear.com/Ne...p_Se_p/246.htm

There is more info and links here: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...06&postcount=4

I've heard these are pretty decent chips, but I've never held them in my hand.

Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

I got a sample I like them, they got a good casino feel to them. They also look like a casino chip instead of a home game chip like most of the so called clay chips

Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

That's.. interesting O_o on the complete contrary, I searched King's Casino on chiptalk and they said they hated them. King's were my first choice, before I posted this thread, because I really liked the tri-color design.

So, eneely, you don't like the Eclipse ones?

I have a sample set of these, and they are horrid. They're made of hard, slippery plastic, so stacks are extremely unstable. I don't like the look, sound, or feel of these chips, and you can get much better for a few pennies more per chip.

^I defer to the gentleman from the Great State of Florida. He has first hand experience, and knows more about chips than I, anyway.

These are just standard issue injection molded chips with a slug in the center. Plastic feel. Much heavier than casino chips.

There are thousands of chips of this design and manufacture, differentiated only by the sticker in the middle. I like the stickers on these more than some. More than, say, the ones with the dog photos, or the ones with president's faces.

But if you like them, go for it. It's all about what you like. But unless you've bought samples of several chips, it is hard for you to know what you like.

Re: Poker chip set with 25 cent denom's

I agree not everyone is happy with the same chips. I'm happy with the eclipse models and happen to like the kings casino model. But most places will send you samples so take your time and get what you like . Price had a lot to do with my decision as well. I needed 1000 chips and got them for about 167 shipped.

Posted a review about 'em but it's not on here anymore.

I like them for the retro aesthetic style they have. Closest thing you can get to this: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...ip-Vault21.png

The weight is nice. They only problem I have with my tournament set, is that the blacks and purples blend somewhat in low lighting, hard to distinguish.
