These premium poker chips are of much higher quality than other typical 11.5 gram chips like the dice or suited designs you see in the market. Look at these chips closely and you will see that the Card Suited design on the chips are not just a print like other chips. They are part of the mold and are engraved in the chip. These professional grade chips are made of a High Quality ABS Composite Resin with a metal insert for added weight. Each 11.5 gram chip is made to specifications and is perfectly balanced to give the proper effect. The strong New All Aluminum reinforced case has space for 2 decks of playing cards, 500 chips, and 5 dice, all included.

First, let me start off by telling you not to pay attention to the negative reviews. Those people bought this set expecting a casino-quality poker set. Anyone spending less than $100 on a poker set is doing it to play at home with their friends. For that purpose, this is BY FAR the best you can get.
When you get it, put aside 30 minutes to unwrap the whole thing. It's annoying, but necessary, therefore not worth subtracting a star. All the chips, dealer chips, cards and dice are wrapped in plastic. No big deal. I would rather have to unwrap them than open the case to see everything scattered all over the place from a rough journey.
The case is alright. It is HEAVY which means it is sturdy. It will keep everything safe, but it is heavy to lug around. The foam lining seems secure and protective. One thing I didn't know is the case locks with a pair of keys. A great addition that I was not expecting.
As for the contents of the case:
CHIPS: They have some paint smudges and imperfections, but honestly, who cares when you're having fun with your friends? We don't sit there examining each chips as we play. We are there to have a good time. The chips are very sturdy (more than I expected) and feel like a had plastic around a metal core. They make a very satisfying "clink!" when they fall on each other and they are slick and sturdy for people like me who like to do chip tricks while they play. The colors are useful and I have never had a shortage of chips, even when I'm playing with 6 people.
DEALER/BLINDS: I was happily surprised with these chips. They aren't the dinky pieces of plastic you would expect from a board game. They are smooth as can be and also feel like they have a core of metal. Maybe they are just a heavy plastic, but they feel great.
DICE: They look amazing. Great design to them. They are heavy and roll well. Not too much to say about them.
CARDS: Once you take out the cards that were packed so tight in the box you thought they were glued, you will see they are good cards. Slick, no stick, even, nice traditional design. They handle well after you break them in after a few shuffles (which is to be expected from any cards). I personally am going to replace them with different decks. This is not because they are bad cards, but because I prefer cards with more character. These have the simple red/blue patterned backs, and I want something more fun.
Overall, for the price you pay, this is an AMAZING purchase. I can tell I will have this for a long time.
That said, I'm very happy with this set now that I have improved it. See how below.
This is a nice chip set for the price. Chips have a good weight, feel strong. Case is decent. Don't drop it. Dealer button is big, I like it.
Chips are very slippery and hard to stack, especially so on a table that isn't perfectly level. This is typical for plastic chips.
The included denominations (1x150,5x150,10x100,25x50,100x50) divide up decently for a T200 or T300 chip 9 person game, but the $10 blue chips are not ideal.
How I improved the set:
I swapped the 100 blue chips for 50 more greens, 25 more blacks, and 25 purple. Got all that for $15 here on amazon. This allows for a very good T300 or T500 game with chip-ups and rebuys. And it keeps standard denominations; this is less confusing for guest players.
I tossed the "motor" brand cards included with these chips, paid $11 for some really nice Copag Poker Size Jumbo Index 1546 Playing Cards (Black Gold Setup) .
The other included buttons (bb,sb, etc) are not useful imo. I tossed them.
Also, I did try roughing up some the now unused blue chips in an attempt to make them stack better (read about this online...). This just made the chips ugly, and they didn't stack noticeably better.
I already own a ultimate texas hold-em set of chips for myself that I got elsewhere so some of this is a comparison to that set. Also I have played with sets at friend houses that were the bottom priced sets and found the finish/quality of those sets to be far inferior to these chips. All in all I would rank these top in quality definitely over the cheap set of clay chips and just edging out the mid-priced "ultimate" set.
As this set was more expensive than my "ultimate" set I was hoping for a better quality case but I don't find the case quality or the chip quality of this set to be significantly better.
My "ultimate" set has foil embossed labels on the chips with printed denominations. This set is simply molded and died clay (no fancy foil, no denominations). I actually like that better as you can make the chips whatever value suites your game and I'm sure once the foil starts to wear off my "ultimate" set, these will still look the same. In short I think the chips themselves in this set are more durable.
Finally this set has just 5 chip colors or denominations vs my ultimate set's 8. I find this to be a big plus in favor of this set as with my other set I rarely use the higher denominations while finding myself needing more of the lower denominations.
If I were purchasing a new set I probably would purchase this set over the "ultimate" set that I already own, I'm certainly very pleased with it buying it as a gift.
