Unless you are friends with a Pit Boss the best advice I could give you would be to search E-bay and then contact the sellers and ask if the cards are cancelled. They are pretty good about mentioning this detail in their item descriptions now. I have accumulated several dozen decks that are pristine. At most you will end up with cards from casinos that are no longer in business.

Cheers! Smile

Cardfan,

There's a company located in New York called Kardwell International.
I think that is their site name also.
They sell Casino cards with obsolete back designs. And I believe that these are new cards.
Hope this helps.

I find casino cards at my local dollar store. They are good for practice!

Thanks Vincent.

PS: Stanyon, thank you for your advice, I will search for no longer in business casino. What I just want is that they look Casino-like.

Casino cards have Bee or a style very similar to Bee backs. These backs hold a section on the north and south section that typically carry the casino name in their corporate style. These logo areas are flipped so that they're not one way. The colors of the back vary, but typically are muted tones.

Usually, used casino cards can be purchased but the decks have the tip noticably clipped or a hole punched through the deck. There may be additional markings to indicate a used casino deck.

Jive-Turkey's information is accurate!! Also, typically Cards used by Casinos have no 'white' borders around their edges. This makes it harder for the cheats to "ring" in something that was never there before. Smile

You can contact the US Playing Card Company in Cincinnati for unaltered, new casino cards. They cost $12 for a box of twelve (red or blue). I bought a box of each from the gift shop which is open every Thursday from 12 to 4.

One geek's advice: don't waste your time with the cards at Sam's; while they advertise themselves to be of casino quality, they're not nearly as good for card handlers as Bikes/Tallys/Studs/others. I bought a six-pack today, and found that:

a) their faro ability is not that good.
b) I've already split a card while trying to faro
c) they're of heavier stock than Bikes, and akin to Gemaco casino cards in that respect.

I'll continue playing with them, and if I change my opinion, I'll be glad to say so. But for now, the cards are not of performance ability, IMHO.
Cheers,
Steve
