Casino Chairs

Karo casino seating

At Karo we manufacture high quality casino gaming chairs for slot and table games. Our VIP, Privé or Royale casino chairs can be found in venues across five continents. We understand that casino chairs are a huge investment, so we want to ensure they meet your requirements and keep your patrons comfortable so that they can enjoy the game. What is the difference between Budget, Mid-Range and High-end (VIP) casino chairs?

As recently highlighted in Casino Style Magazine, player comfort is critical. An uncomfortable player will soon move to another venue where he or she is comfortable. As a result, a more comfortable stool may increase the length of time a patron spends in your venue, and this can raise the profitability of your gaming room.

Uncomfortable players will quickly move to another venue where they are comfortable.

At Karo, we include your feedback in the design and manufacture our products. Our designs include research in ergonomics, industrial physiology and market trends. Only once we have gathered all this data, do we refine our designs and build casino chair prototypes.

How we manufacture casino chairs at Karo

All our processes are defined by our ISO Quality Management System. To give you peace of mind, we have a 7-year warranty on all our casino chairs and gaming stools.

Comfort is King

A player’s first interaction with the game is the chair. Not the button panel, look of the machine, table or the croupier, but the casino chair. This is why Comfort is King.

Comfort is King

A comfortable, but possibly more expensive casino chair in your VIP or royale gaming area,
will pay for itself.

For casino slot seating, chairs that are easy to move, have big comfortable seats and supportive backrests, are usually ‘winners’ in front of any gaming machine. Our moulded foam technology enables us to produce automotive-grade foam seats and backrests that provide exceptional comfort. To improve the manoeuverability of Karo casino chairs, in 2013 we developed our Ezi-Glide Disc Base that has set the benchmark for strength, weight, durability and ‘glideability’.

Table games like blackjack and roulette usually require different types of chairs. These games are more social as players often crowd around the table. With limited space, chairs for casino table games usually have a smaller footprint and a 4-legged base, an example being our Saturn range.

Karo engineers have designed a durable range of casino gaming chairs that are suitable for any VIP or royale gaming environment. Our aim is to manufacture chairs that:

  • Offer greater comfort to the players to improve their gaming experience. As discussed by Brooke Keaton, casinos play on all of your senses and the smell and feel of the chairs plays a huge role in their perceived comfort.
  • Are extremely durable and reduce your operational costs.
  • Provide you with the best possible return on your investment.
  • Are rugged and can withstand extreme usage in a 24/7 gaming room.

Backrest designs for Casino Chairs

backrests on Karo casino chairs
“Flatter” backrests on casino chairs generally accommodate a broader spectrum of players as they are less restrictive. This is particularly so for larger people who find that chairs with “wrap-around” backrests are more difficult to get in/out of.

The backrest on any chair plays a pivotal role in the overall comfort of the chair. At Karo, we have a vast amount of experience in designing ergonomic office chairs, and we incorporate these principles in our casino gaming chairs.

Over the years we have found that patrons, particularly larger-framed individuals, prefer a backrest that is less curved as they find it easier to get in/out of the chair. Unless it is very large, many players find a “wrap-around” backrest to be somewhat restrictive.

Unlike a “wrap-around” backrest, it is possible to include sound ergonomic principles in casino seating with a “flatter” backrest.

Value for Money

Because we are determined to offer you value-for-money, we are not a retailer of imported products. The Karo factory in South Africa manufacturers all our casino chairs and we sell our products directly to you. Without the middle-man, you receive our most competitive price.

What factors influence the price of casino chairs?

Casino Chairs with a Global Reputation

Karo has become a well-respected name in the gaming industry. Our experience, 7-year warranty and commitment to ISO 9001:2015, has enabled to sell our products around the world. Our VIP or Royale casino chairs are found in venues located in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, New Zealand and Australia

Smart Casino Seating

We constantly develop new components, products and manufacturing methods.

  • Our unique weld-free design for pedestal casino chairs reduces the chance of high-risk failures associated with stools that have welded joints.
  • Our pedestal base slot seating uses a ‘taper-lock’ system that eliminates welding. As a result, our stools will never wobble or accidentally separate. This feature enables quick on-site assembly and allows us to pack the chairs in a way that reduces freight costs.
  • Our glue-free upholstery process results in simpler and cheaper re-upholstery of seats and backrests.
  • Our Quick-Release seats ensure that you can exchange soiled or damaged seat cushions within minutes right on the gaming floor. The damaged cushions can then be cleaned or repaired without any significant stool down-time or impact on your gaming revenue.
  • Our in-house moulded foam technology allows us to develop innovative seat and backrest cushions like our dual-density seat foam.

Casino Chair Options

You may want to customise your casino chairs to suit your specific gaming environment. We offer many options and finishes, including bases, upholstery, embroidery, swivel mechanisms etc.

Swivel Mechanism Options

Our casino chairs are supplied with either gas height adjustment, or a fixed height swivel mechanism. Other options include swivel-only and swivel-return. To assist you in deciding which is best for you, see our article on the difference between swivel mechanisms.

Choosing the type of base of your gaming stools is a question of cost, practicality and aesthetics. Disc bases have always been popular, but recently 4-legged stools are making their mark. The reason behind this trend relates to cost, ease of cleaning, and that 4-legged chairs are suitable for all floor coverings. For more information, see comparison of casino seating bases.
