Key West Resort & Casino chips are real clay casino chips in traditional Las Vegas colors with an understated "Old Las Vegas" class. They're designed to look and feel like a real Las Vegas table chip from the 1960s. They come in 12 denominations, from five cents to $25,000. When you buy Key West Resort & Casino chips for your home, office or organization, you're buying real casino-quality table gaming chips -- simply the best chips available anywhere, with or without a casino license.
Today, Key West Resort & Casino chips are made exclusively for our company by Classic Poker Chips of Portland, Maine -- the only American manufacturer of clay casino chips. The company traces its roots to 1912, and still uses the same molds, equipment and formula to make casino chips as they did to make chips for the first casinos of the Las Vegas Strip. Now, they make these amazing chips for us, and you can buy your own set, but only here, at the Key West Resort & Casino.
These casino chips are made to last for up to five years in rough, 24-hour gaming inside a casino. At your home, they're expected to last a lifetime or longer, and will likely be the last casino chip you'll ever buy.
Denominated chips: $1.89 per chip. Roulette chips: $1.45 per chip.
About casino chip prices:
If you grew up playing poker at the kitchen table with plastic casino chips, you were likely shocked to read the retail price of our casino chips. To that, we simply say, "These are not plastic toy chips."
Key West casino chips are regulation gaming chips, called "cheques" inside a casino. They're made by America's oldest manufacturer of real table gaming chips by casino industry craftsmen working with the same casino chip molds, machines and ingredients used to create the first casino chips of Las Vegas, and some of the most famous and valuable chips in gambling history. Normally, these professionals only deal with licensed casinos and large orders in a very secure world.
We've built a longstanding reputation and good relationship with all of our suppliers, and we have access to the normally closed world of the casino industry. That's how we can offer our Key West line of fine casino chips and other gaming items to you for your home.
Before they open the doors, a new casino will order between 1 million and 3 million casino chips, and can pay upwards of $2 per chip. They do this for several reasons.
First, they recoup the cost of the chips within about 30 days by selling chips to customers and then winning them back -- often many times each day. Second, they're very secure and prevent the massive losses that cheaters would otherwise take from a casino. Finally, professional casino chips are made to last for five years or more of constant play inside a casino -- five years of around-the-clock use and abuse.
Your Key West chips are made to the same exacting standards. Properly stored and used in a private home, they should last a lifetime, and longer. Their quality and durability is unmatched. And what we say about them really is true: Key West chips are simply the best casino chip you can buy, with or without a casino license.
They're nice, but are they worth $1.89?
Actually, our Key West Resort & Casino chips really are worth more than our asking price. Creating your own private, custom chip would cost between $1.95 and $3 per chip these days, and you'd have to wait for three to six months for them to be produced, provided you find a manufacturer who will accept you order. Right now, only a few companies worldwide actually produce casino-quality chips, and only one produces real clay casino chips -- our manufacturer.
We've done the waiting for you, and stock around 20,000 chips on an average day. You can buy any number of chips -- from as few as one chip -- in any quantity and any denomination to fashion your own perfect set of casino chips. And you can buy Key West playing cards, dealer buttons and other items to create your own custom table or game room.
So for the price, you are getting the highest quality chip made in the world today, made right here in the United States according to Old World standards for quality, and a piece of gaming history that will last a lifetime.
