Checklist Poker Case

Case Material
  • A poker case contains decks of cards, poker chips, and other accessories for the poker evening. Most models are made of aluminum, wood, or plastic.
  • Cases made of plastic are cheap and suitable for beginners. Aluminum cases, on the other hand, are very robust and durable. Cases made of wood convince by their noble optics.
  • A poker case should have an inlay made of foam. So you can transport all components of the poker set protected.
Number and material of poker chips
  • Poker cases come in different sizes. Most models contain 300, 500 or 1,000 poker chips. Small models with 300 chips are suitable for games with up to 5 people. For smaller tournaments with 7 or more than 10 players you need a larger case.
  • The poker chips can be made of plastic, ceramic or clay . For good handling, they should weigh at least 10 g. Therefore, poker chips with a metal core are especially popular.
  • Plastic is the cheapest material for poker chips. However, clay and ceramic can convince experienced players with their pleasant feel and weight.
  • Additionally, you can pay attention to the design of the chips. Many poker cases contain chips with printed values. Chips without a fixed value should be clearly distinguishable by their colors and sizes.
Poker Cards
  • Usually poker cases contain 2 to 3 decks of 54 cards each. For some game variants you need more than 54 cards, so several decks give you more flexibility.
  • The cards can be made of cardboard or plastic. Plastic cards are more durable and feel more secure in your hand when playing.
  • Besides cards and poker chips , a poker case usually contains the dealer, small blind and big blind buttons for the poker game. Additionally, 5 poker dice for other game variations may be included in the set.
  • A poker case should include game instructions for several popular game variations so you can start playing right away.
  • Accessories may also include a table rest, a card dealer or an electronic card shuffler.
