About the Dunes Commemorative Poker Chip Line
Our Dunes poker chip line represents an attractive mid-range poker chip that
- is well suited towards value-conscious consumers. These work great as a starter
- set for customers that aren’t quite ready to drop $500-$600 on a set of
- true casino-quality chips such as our Protege,
- Noir, or Archetype
The foundation for the Dunes poker chip is a 3-color chip that looks surprisingly
- close to what a compression-molded clay chip looks like. While they are a little
- slicker than true casino chips, they have a textured surface that is much better
- at keeping stacks than the vast majority of mid-range and low-end chips on the
- market. The two-layer colorful inlays are high-resolution commemorative versions
- of the original Dunes Casino chips from that Las Vegas landmark. The line comes
- in 10 denominations, from 25 cent thru $25,000.. The combination of the economical
- base and the two-layer inlay (reminiscent of what you’d find on our true
- casino lines) makes for good quality, denominated chips that can be offered
- at a value-conscious price.
These chips are not clay or “clay composite”, as no inexpensive
- poker chips are, no matter what anyone tells you. All inexpensive poker chips
- are injection molded and it’s physically impossible to injection mold
- clay. They’re all some kind of plastic composite, and are typically made
- in China.
Great value - A solid mid-range chip at a price that's comparable
- to most low-end chips on the market.
Clay chip look - This chip line looks remarkably close to
- a compression-molded clay chip - the edge spots are intentionally made non-standardized
- to emulate real clay chips. .
Good sound when splashing the pot - The biggest complaint
- poker players have with virtually all low-end chips is the cheap metallic "pling"
- sound they hear when rifling thru chips or splashing the pot. These chips don't
- have a metal insert, yet still maintain a weight around 10 grams and sound very
- close to a real casino chip.
Throwback commemorative inlay design - The original Dunes
- Casino chips are among the most sought after chips in the collector market.
