Poker games are the ultimate blend of strategy and luck. With thrilling excitement in a comfortable atmosphere, hosting a poker night is the perfect way to bring friends and family together.
When it comes to shopping for the right home poker table, there are a lot of considerations to take into account, such as the size, shape, felt, material construction, and available features.
While you could settle for a boring round dining table and throw a poker mat down, nothing compares to playing poker at a professional poker table. With integrated cup holders, armrests, a racetrack, chip trays, and everything you need for a professional poker game, our real poker tables provide you with a casino-like experience at home.
A popular choice among customers for home poker nights is an octagon poker table. The Octagon poker table seats eight players comfortably, provides enough room to give players their privacy and is still small enough to fit in a medium-sized dining room, basement, or game room.
With that said, let’s discuss what makes a good poker table and what you should look for when shopping for a professional octagon poker table. Then, we’ll provide you with a list of five amazing octagon poker tables that fit all of your needs.
Ultimately, the difference between a good poker table and a cheap setup with a poker mat is comfort and quality. A professional poker table allows you to sit comfortably and play a poker game without taking a toll on your back.
A good poker table consists of fine table felt, such as speed cloth, allowing players to quickly deal, flip, and move their cards and chips around. In addition, a good poker table typically features a height of approximately 30”. This height provides players with enough room to hold their chips and drinks and view their cards without being on top of another player.
In addition, a good poker table consists of fine material construction, such as stainless steel, or sturdy wood, such as Mahogany, Oak, or Maple. As a result, a good poker table is typically a one-time investment for life.
Finally, many of our professional poker tables also double as stylish dining tables. These convertible poker tables bring customers the best of both worlds, doubling as a high-end poker table and dining table in one.
A real poker table with solid legs and a frame will cost anywhere between $1,000-$5,000 depending on the model, materials used, and the number of features. Of course, lots of our octagon poker tables also come with customizable features and add-ons, such as dining table tops, optional cupholders, and various felt materials that could raise or lower the price.
On the other hand, a folding poker table will save you money and cost you anywhere from $500 on the lower end to around $2000 on the higher end. In addition, these poker tables offer many of the same features, comfort, and quality without the durability or weight capacity of a table with solid legs.
If you’re looking for a professional-style poker table at home, an octagon poker table is often a better choice than a round or oval poker table. There are several benefits to an octagon poker table, including:
With this in mind, it’s important to find an octagon poker table that fits your room and provides you with enough clearance to fit seats and move around freely. Generally, an octagon poker table will be around 57” in total length and seat around 8 players.
On the other hand, a hexagon poker table may be smaller, seating up to 6 players and featuring a lower length, depending on the model.
Shopping for an octagon poker table should be easy and not stressful. That’s why we’ve provided a few tips to help you find the right poker table for any room in your home.
