Any poker player will tell you, it is not just the way chips look that is important when making a purchase, it is the way they sound when you shuffle them in your hands and the noise the make when you "splash the pot!"
Previous to the Showdown, players had to rely on vague descriptions on how chips sounded and felt in comparison to real clay casino chips. Sure, they could order sample packs, but having one chip per style can't really tell you how they sound when in play.
Now, with the Poker Chip Showdown at ePokerDeals, you can really see and hear how different grades of poker chips compare to each other. There is a big difference in how different grades of chips sound and feel, and we want you to have as much information as you require before making a purchase decision.
The videos and descriptions below should take care of most of your questions about the poker chips we offer, the only variable we can't provide, other than a description, is the way the chips feel in your hand. This can be easily taken care of by ordering our "Showdown Sampler" which contains one of each chip featured in a video on this page. This sample pack will give you an excellent "feel" for the different grades of chips we offer.
How to play at the Poker Chip Showdown:
The first time you visit this page and click on a video, it will take 10 seconds to 1 minute for the player to load. After you click the play button and it plays all the way through (12 seconds), you can click on any other video and it will play instantly. You can even play two videos at one time if you like. Don't forget to turn up your volume!

The term "Clay Composite" is thrown around a lot when describing poker chips - the truth is that there is no regulation or even an accurate definition of what "Clay Composite" really means!
