standard clay chips are 10g, so these are heavier than anything at the casino.. Back in the 2000's when the market for these came out, it was americanized to heavier = better.. Somehow 13.5g's became the standard. I wanted a nice set, so i found this site called CHiptalk.net. it had all the info i needed on buying a real set.. Be warned, they are FKN expensive. For a good set, you are looking at about $1/chip... I think thats what i paid, ( only after upgrading my shitty set 4x) but like any collectable these have increased in value to about $4/chip.. I know ill be selling mine soon. Since i never use mine.. I dont see them getting much higher..

heres a sample of my chipsHERE is the link
Great looking poker chips right there... so much detail!

Lots left at the Kanata location. Across from the books, DVDs, vids, etc.

Most have a little demo chip ziptied to the outside of the case so you can get an idea of how they feel. Just from that you can really feel a difference between it and a clay chip.

But... $20, so... in for 2. Thanks OP!

I was told yesterday that Ancaster has more than 100 and Stoney Creek has about 50.

None left in Burlington.

Lots in Guelph when I bought mine.

I opened mine. Here's what I found:
  • Weight of the chips are good
  • The cards that come with it is cheap
  • The finish on the plastic of the chips could be better, flashings from the molds are apparent on the edges of the chips, maybe light sanding would help?
  • The case that it came with is cheap, flimsy feeling. The slots that hold the chips is one piece thin plastic with felt glued on one side (like the cheap top hats you get from the dollar store for halloween). The buckles and locking mechanism doesn't have that high-quality finish/look to it either.
  • Good value for $20

I'd be interested to hear from the downvoters, why they did so. I think "Casino Grade" should be put in quotes in the title, as that is what the box says, but they clearly aren't. But this is RFD, where value is king. These chips would definitely be well served at the Value Town Casino... aka the casual home game. :)

+1. I was in a rush cleaning up and quickly buckled and yanked on the handle to lift up the case. I thought the buckle was secure (maybe it wasn't in my hurry) but it opened up and all the chips dropped onto the ground -- a few of them are dinged now from the fall. Still for $20, another good toy for the kid. :)
