Are you looking for a set of poker chips for yourself or for the serious poker player in your life as a gift? Well, you can’t go wrong with the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets that Nexgen produces. These chips are some of the best I have played poker with.
The first time I played with them I thought they were authentic full clay chips without a metal insert. I later found out that the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets does indeed have the metal insert which helps give them the official weight of the chips that are used at casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada. Speaking of Las Vegas, the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets all have the words “Las Vegas Nevada USA” along the outer circular diameter of every single chip. This is a nice little touch for poker players as it differentiates the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets from all the other sets on the market.
Another unique feature of the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets is that they are marketed in three different cases based on your budget. These cases range from the low end of aluminum to the high end of mahogany. Honestly, I did fall in love with the mahogany case when I saw it. It was felt lined and had two trays for the chips. One was for 300 on top and the other for 200 on the bottom along with three sets of cards on the bottom layer. There was even a brass plate you can have your name engraved on. I just couldn’t see paying over $200 for this set though. The oak one is the set I decided on.
This was a nice wooden box coated in green felt. There were five individual chip holders that held 100 chips each. These holders all fit into one single layer in the box, which I liked as well. Not as fancy as the mahogany, but more affordable at $120. NexGen also produces their 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets in an aluminum case. This case again is a single layer and has a green velour lining. This is one of the better aluminum cases I have seen. The handle is attached securely and the locks appear to be able to take a lot of wear and tear. I choose the oak case, but I’m sure you’d love the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets in any of the three cases.
Of course as mentioned earlier the chips feel great, they feel just like the ones you use in Las Vegas casinos. They don’t chip or get damaged like some inferior poker chip sets. Nexgen even produces their 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets in seven different base colors. When you order your set you can request specific colors from their selection and they will be the ones you receive. That is much different than many other poker chip makers. You just have to remember to make the request when ordering. If you don’t make a request you will receive the five most commonly ordered colors, 100 of each.
If you are a poker player that wants to be envied by your friends when you host your poker games I highly recommend purchasing the 500 Las Vegas Edge Spot Poker Chip Sets. If you have a loved one who enjoys poker these make a great gift. If you want to get a personalized set then I suggest the mahogany with the engravable plate. Just keep in mind you must have the plate engraved by someone else, Nexgen does not provide that service. I am extremely happy with my oak box though as it has been through a lot of use and is still in great condition.
