• The Background of Poker Money

    Poker chips have been manufactured from a wide selection of materials in an almost endless selection of variations since the creation of wagering and the need to keep an eye on winnings. The most commonly seen materials used today in the creation of current poker chips are plastic, clay, and acrylic composite. Clay chips, the oldest of the bunch, have been manufactured in the US since the late 1800s.

    Back in the 1800s, poker players seemed to use any small valuable item you can imagine. Early poker players at times used rough gold pieces as well as chips – chiefly made of wood and clay. By the 1900s, poker chip features started to enjoy a bigger prominence, and the smooth sides of older chips gave way to chips with engraved slits to keep them neatly arranged together.

    There is little debate that poker has expanded constantly in universal appeal ever since its origin in the 1800s. With the explosive increase of internet gaming and specialty television shows, community appeal in poker has feed the fire a lot faster than ever before. Most individuals are first introduced to poker by television showssuch as "Celebrity Poker" or "Poker After Dark," and many will wager on their 1st hands on the web. Despite online poker’s growth, nothing competes with the feeling of shuffling heavy poker chips in your hand, throwing chips into the center of a poker table, or stacking tall pilesstacks of chips after displaying a winning hand.
