We used to play poker regularly with our group of friends when we were at school. The need to create the right atmosphere with the right equipment, i.e. with poker carpets, poker chips and good cards, arose early on in our own home round. However, this was not so easy with felt carpets and even with high-quality cardboard cards, as these were quickly damaged. Unfortunately, good table mats that radiate a great gaming table or casino feeling could not be found at the time.
That's how it happened that, alongside our studies and our main job, we started to create poker equipment ourselves that met our requirements for a poker game. The goal, which is still decisive for our company philosophy today, was to create the opportunity for passionate poker players to take the home poker round to a new level with durable equipment and to bring a casino atmosphere to the gaming table at home .
The Bullets Playing Cards® brand was born from this in 2016. It quickly became clear that a good poker chip must have an excellent design, a pleasant sound and the right weight. A playing card should look classic, be durable and feel good to the touch, and the flexibility of a card should not be too weak and not too stiff. A gaming mat, especially for poker, must be wrinkle-free and lint-free and should not slip. It needs to be comfortable and supple to the touch, yet have a smooth surface so the cards slide easily as the cards are dealt. It should also yield slightly when trying to pick up cards. When these parameters are right and the atmosphere created captivates the players, poker is much more fun.
In cooperation with numerous designers, the Bullets product range was gradually created. In accordance with our philosophy, the development of each product is always worked with attention to detail, because it is often the details that make the decisive difference.
From the beginning it was a matter of the heart for us to inspire our customers with a positive shopping experience. Therefore, from the very beginning, we attached great importance to high standards in the area of customer service and customer satisfaction. A card replacement service and a chip replacement service were therefore quickly established and a courteous customer service set up.
Since its inception in 2016, the Bullets Playing Cards® brand has grown into one of the most popular poker brands in Europe and the USA and we sponsor both large and small events, clubs and associations with our branded poker products. In addition, part of our income is regularly donated to social projects, such as Tafel Rommerskirchen eV, the child protection association, non-profit youth groups and several charity events.
