The Milano is the inaugural Poker Chip of Claysmith's clay poker chip line. The casino clay poker chip line uses clays and other materials to arrive at a compression molded chip that will rival any casino chip. Clay has a distinctive texture that can not be replicated by composite materials. Claysmith composites come close, but their casino clay is top of the line. Nothing sounds, plays, or feels like a clay poker chip.
The latest trend in casino branding is to take a casino property and build them into beautiful palaces. Many of these palaces are named after the world’s most luxurious places. Casinos such as Paris, Venetian, Bellagio (Italian city), Rio, and Mandalay Bay come to mind as beautiful complex's that are named after the world’s most beautiful cities.
The Milano is representation of this trend of palatial casino properties. Poker chip is designed to look regal and noble. The Milano chip prominently displays the denomination in the center of the chip. Scroll like images bookend the denomination. The Milano name is above the denomination and the denomination is spelled out along the bottom of the chip.
The Milano employs a bold use of Claysmith's edge spots known as the Double Trapezoid. This combination allows using two edge spot colors in differing amounts. Chip has a primary color in the "outer trapezoid" and a secondary accent color with the "inner trapezoid". The primary color is intended to blend or complement the base chip color. The inner spot color is intended to be more of a contrasting vibrant color to percolate the senses.
Although the Milano is a fictitious casino, it will look and play like a real casino chip in your home game. The denominations are available in 25¢, 50¢, $1, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500, $1000, $5000, $10,000. It doesn’t matter if you are hosting a large poker tournament with hundreds of thousands in tournament chip value or if you are playing a 25¢ – 50¢ limit game. This poker set will surely heighten your gaming experience.
