What to buy?
If you are seeking to buy a present for a friend or relative, and you are not exactly sure of what to buy, then we suggest looking at our range of 500 Capacity Poker Sets.

However, if you would like to get the best gift, we recommend that you explore our Customised Poker Sets to find something that's really special.
If you feel that you need further advice, please feel free to contact us.
Poker Set Size
There is no definitive answer to the quantity of chips required to play for a set number of poker players.
The quantity of chips and breakdown of colours or values required depends upon the number of players, how they play poker and any preference for having number values on chips.
Considering the price difference between 300 and 500 sets, it is probably better to go for the 500 quantity. These can comfortably cater for up to 21 players.
Our standard sets contain 4 colours or values and this is usually enough to cover most games played at home.
