Nevada Jack's Chips at Poker Gaming Products

nevadaJacks.jpg

There is something cool about a skull. Especially one wearing a sombrero and smoking a cigar. So here, from Poker Gaming Products.com, we have the Nevada Jack's poker chips.

Here's the site's blurb:

They are the highest quality composite casino poker chips made available for home games and casinos alike. A full 10 gram casino weight chip with a high grade texture only found in a true casino, these are now being marketed to casinos worldwide.

Made with a high density polymer composite to give it a professional clay feel, this is an affordable casino quality chip. Compare it to a Chipco brand chip. In addition to its casino feel, an advantage this chip has over its clay counterpart is its ability to accept higher quality graphics using the entire face of the chip. On the edge of the chips, there is also a marble-like finish with vertical stripes at six points around the chip's perimeter. Few chips can come close to replicating this classy appearance.

All chips feature a colorful illustration of the Nevada Jack logo and a deceased old west gambler. Appropriately enough, he is holding "the dead man's hand," aces and eights, the hand reputedly held by "Wild" Bill Hickok at his untimely death. Available in 7 colors and denominations between 25? and $500.

The detail on these chips is flawless and their unique design makes them great for casinos and homestyle play.

These are available in both the individual orders, as well as a full set with aluminum case. Sweeet.

Bikini Watchers Chip Set from Old Vegas Chips

Back on the front of the "sexy" chip motif, much like the strip poker chips we took a peek at, these are hot hot hot!

With these chips around, at least when you lose a pot, you can say:
"I hate to see you go, but I love watching you leave".


Like most of the chips at Old Vegas Chips, you can mix and match the chips as you like to create your own set. These beauties will run you 89 cents each, so it might be wise to use them as accents to a set you already have.

Easy Gift: Some Straight Up Chips

chipsNMore.jpg

There are plenty of gifts out there for the poker player in your life. We'll be attempting to bring you a selection during the holidays that provide you with some ideas while you search around.

First up, we have this nice little chip set. Its got a wide array of accessories, and the chips themselves are the composites we've seen all over at 11.5g. They feel good in the hand, and they plunk nicely on your felt top. What sets this nice little set apart are all the extras thrown in there. You have a dealer button, missed blind chits, and even a reserved chit. We've never seen a home game that needs a reserved chit, but hey, if you're holding a tourney, you could deffinitely see some use with it. New, you're looking at At $179, but if you can snag the used ones at just under $40, this could be quite the steal.
