Our thoughts on the 4 Aces Poker Chips
The 4 Aces Chips are good for 11.5g composites. The red aces are more visible than the black aces. In other words, the ace of diamonds shows the entire diamond and the ace of hearts shows the entire heart. The ace of spades only shows part of the spade and the ace of clubs only shows part of the club. These chips have a nice look and feel but like the other 11.5g composites with inserts they make a coin like sound when they bang against each other.
Here is what We Do It All Vegas says about these 4 Aces Chips:
These Four Aces are the latest edition to our Poker Chip Collection. These chips have several great characteristics that help to separate them from the standard style of poker chips.
These 39 mm diameter casino sized chips are 11.5 grams in weight. They are produced from a composite resin and an insert that gives them the weight feel of a heavy casino quality chip.
What makes them unique however, is the high quality graphic that is embedded as part of the chip. This graphic is NOT a sticker and will never peel or show any kind of lift from the chip. The graphic is part of the chip! All chips have a colorful image of a 4-of-a-kind poker hand in aces surrounding the denomination. Each denomination is a slightly different label color, matching the color of the chips' stripes.
The best part about these chips is that they already have the denominations on them. There are 13 different denominations in this chip series, including 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, $1, $5, $10, $25, $100, $500, $1000, $5000, and $10000. Play your No Limit Hold'Em games and all your other high stakes casino games with these chips! Or play low stakes games too. These chips are very flexible for any game.
The detail on these chips is flawless and their unique design makes them great for casinos and homestyle play alike.
Price Comparisons for 4 Aces Poker Chips
Last time I checked, these 4 Aces Poker Chips were available for $0.21 each.
4 Aces Poker Chips Appearance
These chips look great, the graphics are the same quality as those in stickers yet these do not use any stickers. Holdem plaers appreciate seeing each of the 4 aces represented on each chip.
4 Aces Poker Chips Quality
The quality on these 4 Aces chips is similar to other 11.5g composites with metallic inserts. They have the smooth surface which some people don't like and they make a lot of noise but these quality issues are no different from the other 11.5g composites.
4 Aces Poker Chips in our forum
Dix wrote about the 4 Aces Chips, the Tournament Pro Chips and the High Roller Chips in the 4 Aces Poker Chips thread in our forum. Here is what he said:
While my physical "test" for chip construction and wear is not as intense as what most reviewers perform (I don't literally try to scrape off the graphic or cut into them to see how deep the color goes on the edge spots) I have a habit of needing to do the "chip riffle" while playing online. I find that I think better while doing that now that I've done it so long and it's become habit. So, my "torture test" is simply to see how they survive a couple weeks of riffling while I play online (I have a stack of the 11.5g "Suited" chips I've riffled so long the edges are starting to round off). I always add a couple more chips than I can comfortably riffle so I can get better at larger & larger stacks while I'm at it, so very often they are falling off my desk onto the floor, and generally seeing the type of accidental abuse that you'd usually get with a set of chips.
Both are beautiful sets. Very nice in appearance and good solid feeling 11.5g chips. Very comfortable & easy to use for the standard riffle trick.
Now the bad news... After a couple weeks of this type of use the graphic on the chips begins to show some moderate to significant wear. On the upside they seem to take a beating well. Should a stack take falls off of your table and your cat decide they make great toys and knock them around the floor for a bit they'll hold up just fine & still look good.
One more little gripe about the "4 Aces" chips specifically is that the orange used for the $500 chips, or the pink for the $1000 chips, should have been a darker shade. They can be a bit hard to distinguish from each other if you look quickly.
If you have a home game without a lot of "chip shufflers", you'll fall in love with any of these sets. On the other hand, if your game includes a lot of those who have a habit of "playing" with their chips heavily, expect to see some wear, not in the chip's material physically or the edge spots, but in the center graphic.
Another plus is price.
SB Supplies sells the "Tournament Pro" chips for $75/$100/$145 for 300/500/750 chip sets with the usual free case, cards, dealer button, etc. That's 25/20/19 cents each. They come in 8 denominations from $1 to $5000.
Also, while you're at it you can add an absolutely gorgeous "Ultimate Dealer Button" with it's own velour pouch to the package for 5 bucks off the usual price for it. At a full 2 1/2" in diameter, and 1/4" thick it's larger and thicker than "standard" dealer buttons. (I bought the "gold" version & it's stunning) One little oddity about SB Supplies is that the plastic cards they give you with their sets are "bridge" sized cards, even though the case is fitted for the usual poker size cards.
The "4 Aces" chips can be had just about everywhere. We Do It All Vegas is selling them for $0.21 each. Available in a staggering 13 denominations from 5 cents all the way to $10,000.
If price is your biggest concern the High Roller Chips set is your best value. Nevada Jacks is selling them in 300 & 500 chip sets with the usual case, cards, dealer button, etc, for 50 & 60 bucks. That translates to about $0.17 & $0.12 per chip respectively. The drawback is the denominations, only 5 from $1 to $100 which is effectively only 4 as I consider $50 chips kind of useless.
