    I noticed on Kardwell's Kem page they have these two different tabs. The Casino tab has their Alpha cards and some arrows. Is there a difference?

    https://www.kem.com/cards/KEM-Casino.html

    I have about every major brand of plastic playing card and Kems still feel the best. That said all but one of my 3 sets didn't bow or warp. I never felt there was a difference in feel between my pre USPC Kems and the new ones but I did think there was a difference in feel between the Borgata's Kems in the early 2000's and the pre USPC cards I was playing with at home.

    I would take a chance on these Alphas if they were thicker like the old Borgata Kems. Otherwise I'm done with Kems and all acetate cards for that matter. My Catamundi acetates feel almost identical to Kems but have also taken a slight bow :mad:o

    I hate to guess but I might assume that the casino cards use "security red" for the red suits.

    In the Casino cards there are less options and when you click on the red and blue in either Casino or Consumer they are the same cards, and there are no options. My GUESS is that they have a separate section to show the back options (they limit the backs) for casinos, MORE SECURE back...
