The invention and use of poker chips was an important milestone in gambling culture. Julius Weintraub, a gambler who has been in Las Vegas for many years, has reflected on the importance of games and poker chips. "The guy who invented poker was bright," he said, "but the guy who invented the chip was a genius." In the absence of poker chips, gold in various forms is mainly used for wagering in casinos. Because they do not have a uniform quality for measurement, the fairness of a game has always been troubled. After the early poker chips appeared, they existed in different materials, including wood, ivory, bone, paper, and clay. Poker chips like the German Royal Flush Poker Set and the American-made Royal Poker Set, are famous and valuable. Also, as a representation of expensive game poker chips, they are highly collectible items, especially for many experienced gamblers. What can't be ignored is that they also spent a lot of thought on game manufacturing. Some of them chose heavy clay materials and the most advanced game manufacturing technologies at that time. Nowadays, the development of poker chips not only provides indispensable support for the board game accessories in ancient gambling games but also makes a non-negligible contribution to the development of modern board game manufacturing.
At present, more and more game designers are bringing poker chips into their creative games, especially some high-end quality board games. The application of poker chips can greatly improve the entire board game experience and develop more game modes. And the high-quality poker chips in the board game also need to check at each stage in the manufacturing process of the board game. There is no denying that the game-making process for a complete set of poker chips is similar to miniatures. They are first created by casting molds and then completed by foundry casting or die-casting to complete the overall poker chips shape and finally completed by coloring and polishing. But the difference is that since the poker chips are more of wagering during a game, its board game manufacturing process requires steps such as adding quality calculations or final stickers.
