The 2'' (50mm) Casino pool balls are a red and yellow pool ball set.

Casino balls first appeared on Casino-hosted, televised, eight-ball tournaments during the 1970's and Red and Yellow coloured balls were used to make them more distinguishable for the eight-ball TV viewing public.

Now, we are starting to see the Casino balls taking over from the pool ball sets on the pool tables of pool halls and hotels! The pool hall managers and hotel publicans have seen the light and worked out that having Casino balls on their establishment pool tables is far cheaper than having regular 8 ball sets of the past.

The reason for the change is really simple!
Due to the large number of 8 ball and numbered ball losses experienced by hotels and pool halls, by using Casino balls means the replacement of the missing balls is far cheaper than replacing numbers and banded balls! Each box of numbered pool ball set can replace only 3 balls at the most before another set is needed if the same numbered balls keep being taken.

With a Casino pool ball set a minimum of 9 missing balls can be replaced before a new box of Casino balls is needed to be used as replacement balls! ... and combine this with the fact that many people don't bother taking plain red or yellow balls means that the losses are far fewer than with traditional 8 ball and pool ball sets. :)
