Undoubtedly amongst one of the most popular games on the planet is Poker and nowadays with the amount of poker sets available to buy online you don’t have to visit a casino to play. Poker or Blackjack are great games to enjoy friends or family from home. There are many poker chip sets available online but within this review we are going to evaluate is by Trademark Poker.
This is an affordable beginners poker set designed for fun home use, not high stakes poker matches.
Inside the case are stored 500 casino quality poker chips, 2 decks of cards [1 red pack, 1 blue], 2 blind buttons and a dealer button.
The complete set is housed in a lightweight aluminium case with a black felt lining. It includes keys to lock it if you so wish, check under the chips to find the keys when it is delivered. The trays the chips are housed in holds them tightly. The only flaw in the design seems the plastic handle, with its contents the case is really heavy and we are uncertain if the handle is strong enough to take the weight. Just make sure and take caution when carrying it.
The Poker Chips
Included are 150 white chips, 200 red chips, 100 green and 50 black one reviewer did comment that the white chip is usually the lowest denomination chip at a casino so it would make good sense to have more white chips. Luckily the chips are blank so you can allocate your personal monetary denominations to them. The chips are all 11.5 grams in weight and measure 39mm. They are made from composite resin which provides a heavier feel that is near but not quiet casino quality. We still think for the cost that they offer value for them and are better than using cheap plastic tiddly-wink chips that a number of stores are selling.

The main negatives were the low quality of the playing cards but as most reviewers mentioned they were buying the set for the chips and case and could easily replace the playing cards. If you are seeking a good brand try Bicycle playing cards. Some reviewers experienced the case and packaging arriving damaged to varying degrees.
This is an affordable poker chip set with everything required to play. If you are a regular poker player and hunting for a set that will impress the boys then I ‘d suggest trying to find a more expensive set but if you are playing occasionally with friends or family then this set is more than adequate. It has enough chips for a group of 4-6 people to play and would make a great beginner poker set for someone fascinated by beginning to play. If you are giving it as a present and wish to make it a little better replace the existing pack of cards with Bicycle brand cards.
