The purpose of this Blog is to share our
experience and knowledge of the home poker market. We have
been selling casino and poker chips on the net since 1999.
Our office is located in Las Vegas and we have inside contacts
with all the major casino chip manufacturers.
Private Cardroom No Cash Value Set
We just got the OK from Paulson for a full set of Private
Cardroom No Cash Value chips. They will look exactly the
same as the current grey chip. We will have a pre-sale as
low as $.79 each starting soon.

Paulson Essay Contest
I am looking for someone to write an essay for my site about the history and
quality of Paulson Poker chips. The essay can be around 500 words and
needs to explain why Paulson chips are the best money can buy. The winner
will receive a $100 gift certificate to be used on Paulson poker chips.
We have two entries so far.
Global Gaming Expo
The Global Gaming Expo will be held in Las Vegas from 11/14 - 11/16 at the
Las Vegas Convention Center. It is the best show in Las Vegas. Most
of the major chip suppliers will be there. Do yourself a favor and try to
Paulson Hot Stamps
We jut got the OK from Paulson that we could do a line of Hot Stamps.
We could do a group buy where the price would be $.79. I want to see how
many people will be interested in this. We could do the lame starburst or
a custom line. If anyone would like to design the hot stamp for us we will
pay well. I will need Pre-Sales of at least 35,000 chips before I go ahead
with this. For a larger hot stamp we could use the JB mold or for a
smaller stamp we could use the Trademark mold. Also JB or NPS edge spots
could be used. Paulson will not let us do solid colored chips.
This code might take a while to break. We are giving
away the Holy Grail of poker chip prizes. Have fun with

New Paulson Home Poker Chip Set
We are pleased to announce the first new Paulson home chip set for 2006!
Paulson was extremely flexible and allowed us additional options in the edge
spot patterns and colors. After weeks of playing with spots and colors for this
"2nd Generation" home chip set, Paulson likes them! We love them! And we think
you will to!
We have commissioned John Faulhaber to design an inlay for this set. You may
have seen John's work on many sets including our very own Deadwoods and Key West
Apache Poker Chips has joined forces with Holdem Poker Chips as exclusive
retailers for this new Paulson set. Expect to see the inlay design in a week or two and a pre-sell offering immediately there
Please check back for updates.
We have just added a Card Covers page. We
feature actual casino chips in an Air-Tite holder. Each collectable chip
is in uncirculated condition.
Caesars New Poker Room
Caesars just opened their new poker room on Wednesday.
It is a giant room with 35 tables right next to their incredible
Sportsbook. They did not have a Poker Room since the late
2 Chips 2¢
For a limited time we will be offering one of each of the
new Deadwood and Key West poker chips for only two cents. These chips came
out great and we want to share them with you. If you are having any doubt
of which set to buy for Christmas this special will help.

Matsui Group Buy?
I really want to do a Bud Jones chip but Paulson will
not allow it. I might have to go with
The chip would be a replica of the World Series of Poker chips used in
tournament play. One obstacle is the very high price. These chips
are very expensive. I will need at least 20,000 pre-orders at $1.15 per
chip. If you are interested
let me know. I have several Matsui samples and I think they are
Rarely do I join organizations but I felt it was very
necessary to join the PPA.
The PPA is trying to keep
online and home based games legal. Make sure you go to their website to
read more. As an online merchant I had to join. If you are a home
player you might want to join as well.
Last week Matsui ordered 100 Paulson and Blue chips from me.
They also wanted my opinion on their new clay chip. I told them that the
chip was slippery and had an overall cheap feel to it. Hopefully they will
have their engineers study the Paulson chip very hard. Looks like it is
back to the drawing board for Matsui. It really goes to show that making a
compression molded clay chip takes a lot of skill.
We got a shipment date from T.R. King so we will be starting the
Deadwood Pre-Sale. Without question
this will be one of the finest poker sets available.
Bud Jones Poker Chips
I was hoping to surprise everyone this Christmas with a set of Bud Jones
chips. While at the G2E conference I spoke with Paulson about getting an
order in. Since the Bud Jones & BNG lines were never tainted with fantasy
chips they will not do a line for the home market. They also said that the
Bud Jones line is more expensive to make than a Paulson chip.
I was going to add a line of Horsehead chips but when I found out ASM would
revive a long dormant H-Mold we jumped on the chance to use a true classic.
Just about every casino in Las Vegas used the H-Mold in the 1950's. I was
looking for timeless art that would make this chip look like something actually
used fifty years ago. I think you will agree
John Faulhaber designed one of the best looking
chips you will ever see. When all the art is finalized we will start the
Matsui Gaming Machine
On June 15th I was contacted by MGM regarding their new clay
poker chip. I was very excited and asked for samples.
As of today I am still waiting for those samples. I
contacted their Las Vegas sales rep and asked what is taking so
long. He informed me that mass producing a compression
molded clay chip was a lot harder and expensive than they
thought. He said if they can't figure it out by the end of
the month the project will be put on hold. I would say you
are more likely to flop quads than see a clay chip from them
Global Gaming Expo
Gaming Expo will be held in Las Vegas 9/13-9/15. If you are
interested in everything about casinos this is the show you need to attend.
Every slot manufacturer will be showing off new machines and all the casino chip
companies will be there. Last year Clint Eastwood and Pele were there to
promote their new machines. They will also have a Food & Beverage
exhibit serving unlimited supplies of gourmet food & beer. It truly is the
best show I have ever attended. Even better you can get all the
chip samples you want.
Green Valley Ranch
The Green Valley Ranch has finally opened their Poker Room. They opened
yesterday at noon and all 110 seats were filled. It is one of the nicest
poker rooms in Vegas. While you are waiting for your seat you can have a
drink at the bar located right inside the Poker Room. Since it is smoke free
and only one mile from my house I will be playing there often. I was also
able to get several racks of uncirculated $1 chips
and have them for sale at our Real Casino Chips
For quite some time I have been thinking about giving T.R.
King a large order. What has always kept me from doing it
is the large price tag. King chips are the most expensive
chip on the market. With the high price also comes high
quality. If Paulson is the best clay chip then King is the
second best. Many people feel the King chips are better
than Paulson. Each and every chip is hand crafted by owner Dennis O'Neill in California.
The Small Crown is the oldest mold that is still producing chips. We
wanted to give our new Deadwood line an old style look so T.R. King was the
obvious choice. To make sure these chips would look great we had
design the artwork. It will be an eleven chip set
from 25¢ - $25000 with 6 different edge spot patterns. The chips will be
available early October.
We can be reached at (800) 976-5373
from 9:00AM - 11:00PM Pacific seven days a week if you have any
questions or would like to place your poker chip order over the phone.
