Anyone out there with custom sets, or have seen casino chips with "different" denoms?

For example:

What would you think playing with something like the following?

- 10 cent/chip
- 50 cent/chip
- 2 dollar/chip
- 8 dollar/chip
- 40 dollar/chip

OR

- 50 cent/chip
- 3 dollar/chip
- 15 dollar/chip
- 30 dollar/chip
- 85 dollar/chip

Nothing like a unicorn set that doesn't go by the normal 1,5,25,100!

Show 'em;)

I just made a 1/5/10 set. It makes no sense and is stupid. I like it.

.50 / 2 / 10 / 50 is actually the correct sequence, if you start that way.
Not making X4 or X5 jumps (but rather X2 ones) can be permissible (meaning functional) at the bottom or at the top of the chip set's range (possibly marginally, at both).
Weird denominations, like $3 or $85, are most useful for showing, as a beautiful collection, at prospective sexual partners (hopefully clueless about poker) only :D

How do you color up to a $20 chip with only threes? Ones?
Yeah we have some one dollar chips we use but the don't match the rest of the GCs so they're not pictured...

I only have 7 racks of the reds so once those are sold out I sell the $20s as rebuys.

And, this denom feels like the action would be insane.

They're great for $3-$6, $6-$12 and $9/$18... they're especially useful in split pot games, which most of the dealer's choice games we run are.

> wtf

It's obvious really, isn't it?

33-1/3 cents = r.p.m., for LP albums (chickened out on 16-2/3 cents)
$2 = Frank Crosetti
$7 = Mickey Mantle
$13 = Wilt Chamberlain (also my lucky number)
$37 = Casey Stengel

And all primes, as a bonus for the mathematically unimpaired. :cool

In play, those denoms actually work out pretty well. The 7-13 step is a little tight, but not a real problem when playing 33-1/3 / 66-2/3 NLHE.

(I had the 1s made just in case they were ever needed, but they weren't.)

And of course, the Busted Flush was Travis McGee's houseboat in John D. MacDonald's books...
