    While these showed up last November, I am just now seeing them.

    These are in-use at the Casino Del Sol facility of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe casinos here in Tucson, AZ. Replacing their previous poker room tournament chips (Chipco unicorns) these, as I have been told, are ABS plastic chips from ICON Poker.

    These chips are assembled from pieces and then fuzed together. The Photoshop graphic below shows the different pieces to make a single, 100 NCV of this chip-set.

    The inlay piece is printed prior to assembly and fuzing and uses an un-defined hot-stamping process. Even though they are assembled pieces, each chip feels solid, has some heft and they shuffle like a dream!

    Hate to say it but the graphics on the inlays are kinda lame. These look like a set that anyone could buy on Ebay. I've really liked some o their previous chips but IMO, they could have done so much more with the inlay here.

    Thanks for posting these though Jim.
