5.0 out of 5 stars Best on the Market
As quite a serious poker player I scoured the internet for a chip set at a decent price with a large number of chips, and I dont think there is any better than this. Far cheaper than any other 500-piece set, the chips are a decent weight and handle well. As long as you aren't looking for real clay chips at this price, you wont be disappointed. Delivery was really quick...

2.0 out of 5 stars CHEAP ASS POKER SET
Unfortunately the picture for this product is misleading.
The case is only partially aluminum and is mostly plastic.
The chips are of poor quality and feel cheap.
Also the design is not always the same on each chip.
There is also a lot of loose, what can only be described as, tiny bits of chips that fall off and stick to the...

This review is from: CQ 500 11.5g DICE Poker Chip Set in Aluminium Case (buttons, cards + dice) (Toy)These are a great set of chips. They have a nice weight and feel to them, and are very sturdy. Some of them started flaking ever so slightly after a few rounds, but nothing serious. The only major problem any purchaser may have with the set would be with the casing within which it came with. The handle is made of plastic, and seems slightly cheap. It may not last very long, but here's hoping it will! The cushion rests were slightly misaligned, and the locks look flimsy as well. From past users' reviews, I wouldn't recommend using it.
It came with an introductory booklet (to poker), which would be useful for beginners. The dice look and feel sturdy, although the same can't be said of the cards.
4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good!,

This review is from: CQ 500 11.5g DICE Poker Chip Set in Aluminium Case (buttons, cards + dice) (Toy)Got this for a christmas present, but before you buy make sure you realise that this thing is freaking heavy!, as in; uncomfortable to walk and hold heavy.
I also somehow ended up with 250 chips being white, so its a bit confusing as to what to make the values. Other than that and the flimsyness of the case its alright.
its cheap and cheerful, but it looks the part, just make sure the poker games are at your own house.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but could have a better case,

Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CQ 500 11.5g DICE Poker Chip Set in Aluminium Case (buttons, cards + dice) (Toy)The chips are great and allow one to play poker with 10 people, comfortably. The case however, feels just a bit flimsy and the latches do not fit well unless you carefully align the lid when shutting the case. Also, I tried the locks for fun and the keys are so weak that they bend when the latches are locked and unlocked.
Overall, the stuff is definetly worth the price, especially if you're going to play in a big group.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Poker Set,

5.0 out of 5 stars great chips for price,
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:5.0 out of 5 starsBought these the other day and are well chuffed - easily the best chips for the money around. I already had a set of plain chips but wanted enough for a tournament of up to 16 people.
Chips look robust and feel good to hold. Patterns are clear and value on them also clear. - can see these lasting a long time and great for a few drunken mates.
Case is in superb condition and robust as well.
Cards are just regular cards that you get from any toy shop and are nothing special, but didn't buy it for them. The chips were the important thing. There was no small or big blind button but there is a dealer chip.
Inside of case is well cushioned to hold chips in place, but dice do fall out(perhaps you could use one of these as the small blind button, cause I'm never gonna use them for anything else.)
Great value - would definitely recommend
4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfied :),

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars
the chips are fine but the card included in the set is not good
so prefer users to buy seperate packs since the supplied cards are of low quality
5.0 out of 5 stars you get what you order,

5.0 out of 5 stars Good set of chips, for the price!,
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:2.0 out of 5 starsThe chips themselves are very good quality, it was just a shame that the cards didn't match up to the standard of the chips. The cards are of a low quality and only last 2 or 3 poker nights at most! But worth every penny none the less as a good deck of cards don't cost too much! Good buy for your first poker set.
