I see these pop up every once in a while on ebay. Can anyone confirm where they come from, i.e., are they readily available for sale the the Parx gift shop or something?

I have never seen white pai gow tiles before, but I see no reason to doubt they are authentic.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

They don't look to me like they would be used at the tables. White tiles would wear much worse than black, and I also don't think a casino would want an asymmetrical back design.

It's probably a rebranded cheap mahjongg set. Possibly sold in the gift shop.

Why not contact someone at Parx and see what they say?

Idk how many members we have that go there on a regular basis.

I could make a trip there within the next week or so and check on it if you are super curious.

I'd be interested. Just curious if they're selling these or if they were from some promotional event and if they ones they use at the tables are actually the standard black ones.

If they are used at the table, they would have to be scored or drilled to keep them from being slipped into the stack. The photo didnít show any marks, so I doubt they are table used.
