2017 Vintage Casino Tournament Seating Sets Available now!!!

SALVATORE APODACA - Tuesday, August 01, 2017

Some of the first and best casinos of early Las Vegas have long since been imploded, sold, built over and just plain forgotten. The nostalgia of those casinos and the famous and infamous characters and events that shaped Las Vegas are still alive though. Collectors, tourists and historians are often more interested in the days of the Rat Pack, the Mafia, Elvis, desegregation, Liberace and the young Wayne Newton.

This seating set group buy is an homage to four of those early and most iconic casinos. 

  • The Aladdin (red)
  • The Pioneer Club (green)
  • The Horseshoe Club (brown)
  • The Stardust (violet)
    

A tournament seating set allows you to fairly assign seats to players at gaming tables. Generally these are used for poker tournaments but they can actually be used for any gaming activity where you need to randomly seat players.

Each table has a marker - a 107mm rectangular plaque - with a casino name and its color scheme. A player can choose from a bag or you can lay all the chips face down at your check-in table. All the backs of all the seating chips are the same so players can't tell which table or seat each chip belongs to. And their choice is made in full view making the seating process fair and transparent.




Along with the seating chips and the table marker each set also includes a matching dealer button. No poker table is complete without a great dealer button.

Two more options include an 82mm High Hand oval plaque and 43mm Bounty chips. Check out those beauties! 

The group buy for this set was started over at the wonderful Poker Chip Forum. If you aren't already became a member go ahead and sign up and explore all the great discussions and debates to had.

You can order these great sets right here on Old West Poker Supplies only for a limited time. And we need your help in meeting the minimum order quantities on all the seating chips so please order before August 15th. You can monitor the progress of the group buy on the forum thread. 

If you have any questions or concerns that I haven't answered here or on the forum then please drop me a line  to oldwestps@gmail.com. Don't forget to order before August 15th and we'll be able to ship the final product in early September.

Thank you for your support!
