Recently I played a poker game in a town I’ve never played before. There were many aspects of the game that I didn’t pay attention to, such as how shuffling was handled, splash pots allowed, and no cut cards used. But the real problem came when each player’s chips were cashed out at the end of the night. As the last player counted out, it became clear that they had significantly less cash left to pay off their remaining chips.

Unfortunately, this is a problem that happens more often than you might think. The problem is that for games with 10 or more players, there are often players you don’t know very well. These players can be very dishonest and even sneak chips that are counterfeit in nature. The problem is that most poker game hosts use chips of a standard design and can be purchased at almost any retail store or online website.

Because of this persistent problem, we recommend using custom chips in all poker games, whether the game is a cash game or a tournament.

Custom poker chips make importing foreign pieces very difficult. Not only will this save you money in the long run, it will make your poker game feel much safer as you won’t have to pay out of your own money to cover extra chips sneaking into the game. Every night of poker would be so much more enjoyable if you didn’t have to worry if someone was trying to sneak extra chips on the table.

Searching around will reveal that there are many different types of custom chips available. There are many differences in security, configuration, style, and the amount of customization you can do.

The cheapest custom poker chips available are plastic and have labels, stickers, inlays or some sort of printing on the chips. It is inexpensive because the base chip is the same for everyone and only the removable sticker or printing on top of the chip is custom. You cannot change the color or design of the base chip. Therefore, it is not recommended because anyone who has a printer at home or goes to a print shop can easily make copies.

On the other hand, clay poker chips or ceramic poker chips are the safest. Playing poker in a casino will give you an idea of the types of chips used in poker rooms and casinos around the world. The custom poker chips made of clay or ceramic that you get for home games are the exact same chips used in casinos. These types cost more, but they don’t cost you to feel more secure in the game and cash out with your own money.

Clay poker chips have been around for over 100 years. Be aware that it is very difficult to find real clay poker chips that you can customize. If you can find one, it will cost at least 1 per chip. There are retailers that claim to have custom clay poker chips, but they are often cheap plastic and the chips are not completely custom.

On the other hand, ceramic poker chips are more readily available. Although this type of poker chip is fairly new, there are a few companies that offer fully custom ceramic poker chips for home poker players. Ceramic chips start out as solid white discs that are fully customizable. Full face, edge to edge as well as edge to edge can be customized. This means you can change the color and design to your liking. You can use your own work or have someone else do it for you. The image of the custom ceramic poker chip is embedded inside the chip and cannot be removed without actually damaging the chip. It is these characteristics that make ceramic chips the safest chips.
