What Is The Reason People Use Poker Chips?

Jun 6, 2008
Description: People are using Poker Chips at homes also instead of cash. Let us see how easy it is to use and buy Poker Chips from different variety of chips sets.

The poker game has been played since long ago. In today's world, people just don't play poker in a casino, but on television; those who want to have fun also play in their house. To get the real feel while playing in your house, Poker Chips are the key ingredient.

When it comes to substituting for cash, Poker Chips are a better option than anything else. Gambling gives the players a thrill and chips help us get the same feeling by representing cash. Poker Chips used for home usually come in 4 colors in 10, 25, 50 and 100 denominations. Casinos also determine a certain amount of money for chips, ranging from $1 to $500. Each weighs between 9.5 to 10 grams.

Poker Chips are available in different materials, plastic being the cheapest and clay the most expensive. Plastic chips are usually thin, layered chips in 4 standard colors: red, white, yellow, and blue. Plastic chips are available at toy stores, stores keeping gaming accessories, supermarkets, etc. To have the real feeling of a casino at home, clay chips are better than plastic ones. The cost of these chips is based on different sizes and weights.

The price of both varies to a huge amount. If a person wants something in the middle of these two, he can go for metal chips, which are more durable than plastic chips and less expensive than clay chips. The type of chip should be selected based on his requirements and how often he will use them.

After deciding the type, the number of chips required to play the game should be decided. Normally each player has 80 chips at the start of the game. If 4 or fewer people will be playing, then a set of 320 will do the work. Poker Chips can also be customized according to the customer's choice of design and color; this will make it different than everyone else's. It is better to place the chips in a plastic rack or box when not in use. After all, it is an investment which should be taken care of. The chips can also be bought in a set. The price range of these items can be from $5 to $250.

The chips can also be ordered from Internet and can be delivered in a few days. Select a reliable dealer on the Internet. You may find a much better deal on the Internet.

To make sure of the order on the table and to monitor the amount of money on the floor, casinos use Poker Chips. Playing with cash also makes the table look messy and confusing. These chips are a better substitute for cash.

For people who play often, it is a good idea to have a set at home. It is good to have the same thrill as in a casino. By using cards and these chips, it will really make the game feel more serious, look less messy, and eventually bring about more fun and excitement.
