I have been an avid poker player for nearly fifteen years now. I just love the game and try to get one at least once a month with some Las Vegas Casino Poker Chips. I was invited to a mutual friends house for a game last month and was happy to say yes. The holidays had just came and went and due to that, I had not played any poker in two months.
It is hard to get the extra couple of bucks to play a friendly game when you are saving for Christmas gifts for the children and with the economy the way it has been poker just was not a priority capsa. So naturally, I accepted the invitation with a vehement “Yes!”. The gentleman that was holding the game took out these Authentic Casino Poker Chips like none I had seen before. The had coin inlays in them and he said they were called 12.2g Coin Inlay Jackpot Casino Poker Chips and that he had bought them online for a very good price.
We sat down and started the game and I was surprised that the 12.2g Coin Inlay Jackpot Casino Poker Chips were not too heavy. I thought with a coin inlay that they would be heavier than the clay ones I had used at my local casino and card room. But they were very close to the same weight. They were very nice looking Clay Casino Poker Chips. We were playing mixed games that night and it was very easy to keep up with the different bet amounts as there were denominations on all the chips. The coins made the 12.2g Coin Inlay Jackpot Casino Poker Chips look very nice as they were being put into the pot.
I will admit that those chips looked even better when they were in front of me as I was having a very good night and I was winning a bit of money throughout the night. We decided to take a break after two hours of playing and once again I had to ask the name of these great poker chips we were playing with. He told me again that they called 12.2g Coin Inlay Jackpot Casino Poker Chips and he showed me the website he got them from so I could order a set for my home games that I would hold once every couple of months. I already had a nice poker table that I got for Christmas.
My birthday was coming up so I was hoping to drop enough hints to get my honey to buy me a set of these chips for my birthday. If not, I would buy the chips for myself; sometimes you have to treat yourself if no one else will. We got back to our game shortly after and I was very happy with my night of poker. Not only did I make some very nice poker buds, but I was also up over a hundred dollars and was invited back by the host for his next game in two months.
If you’ve ever walked through a casino, you’ve probably seen a craps table, but have you ever wondered what a craps table actually is? What does it comprise, what are its components?
The biggest and most obvious part of the table is the bed. Casino craps tables are generally available in 8-foot, 10-foot, or 12-foot lengths. Along the top edge of the bed is a continuous Padded Rail on which the players can lean. Standing at a craps table for long periods of time can become tiresome for the player, so the padded rail allows the players to rest or change body positions to ease the stress. After all, the casino doesn’t want players to walk away simply because their feet and knees hurt. Obviously, the casino wants players at the table as long as possible.
Adjacent to the padded rail is the wooden Chip Rack, which is usually two-racks deep with dividers about every 12-to-16 inches. The dividers separate the chip rack into individual sections for the players.
Along the outer perimeter is a little shelf called a Drink Rail. As the name implies, this is where players place their drinks. Drink glasses and bottles are not allowed on the Padded Rail because of the risk of spillage onto the layout. Not only do spills make a big mess on the layout (which the casino has to pay to get cleaned), spills delay the game which digs into the casino’s profits. Cigarette ashtrays are also placed on the Drink Rail.
Inside the bed is the Table Layout with all the numbers and boxes onto which the players’ chips are placed. The felt can be any color depending on the casino’s specifications. Common colors are green, blue, and sometimes red. Special designs and patterns can be incorporated into the layout to match the casino’s theme. The area on the outer edge of the layout is called the Apron.
