Octagon Poker Tables Buying Guide

What Makes a Good Poker Table?

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.

How Much is a Real Poker Table?

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.

What are the Benefits of an Octagon Poker Table

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:

  • Provides more space and privacy than a round poker table
  • Often easy to fold and store
  • Seats up to 8 players
  • Comes with collapsible or solid legs
  • Fits most medium-sized rooms
  • Available in smaller hexagonal sizes

How Big is an Octagon Poker Table?

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.

What to Look for in an Octagon Poker Table

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.

  1. Folding or Solid Table: If you’re concerned about space or storage, you might want to consider a folding octagon poker table. These tables offer easy storage and assembly. Otherwise, a solid poker table may last longer and be built with heftier materials.
  2. Size: While 57” is a pretty standard size for an octagon poker table, some poker tables may feature a longer or smaller length. Be sure to measure any room you’re thinking about putting a poker table in to ensure the one you buy will fit comfortably. Allow for another 2 feet of space for chairs and players to leave the table comfortably. 
  3. Felt: Poker table felt will massively impact your gameplay. Aim for a felt with a nice worsted blend of ≥70% wool and ≤30% nylon. 
  4. Legs: Lots of octagon poker tables come with folding or collapsible legs. However, if you’re looking for a sturdier poker with better materials, consider a poker table with a solid wood pedestal or ball and claw-style legs. 
  5. Finish: Depending on the material construction, your table will come with various finishes. If shopping for a metal poker table, purchase a table with an anodized finish that will prevent rusting. Conversely, if shopping for a wood poker table, find one with a nice veneer or wood finish to preserve the wood’s surface against scratches and abrasions. 
  6. Tabletop and Chairs: Are you purchasing a poker table for your dining room? Then purchase an octagon poker table with a set of chairs and an optional dining table top. This product will save you money and add tremendous value to your home and interior design. 
  7. Features: Depending on the brand, lots of octagon poker tables may or may not come with integrated chip trays, cupholders, LED lights, or a shuffler. Consider whether these features are necessary or more affordable to purchase separately.

Now that you know what to look for in a brand new octagon poker table, let’s explore the five best octagon poker tables available.
