Which Casino Chair base is best?

bases for casing chairs and gaming stools

Chairs for gaming machines are available with 3 types of bases, namely DISC (or flute), 4-LEGGED and 5-STAR. Which is best? With so many options on sale, choosing the type of base of your poker machines is a question of application, cost, practicality and aesthetics.

Disc bases have long been popular among gaming machine operators, but more recently, stools on 4-Legs have become fashionable. What are the other options and which is best? The answer is not as straight forward as it seems.

Where are the gaming stools going to be used?

The first criteria is to decide where the stools will be used and understanding the buying process for casino chairs.

Stools with bases that are easy to manoeuver and have a big comfortable seat and supportive backrest, will usually be ‘winners’ in front of any slot or gaming machines.

Table games like blackjack and roulette, usually require different types of chairs. These games are more social with constant interactions between players that crowd around the table. With limited space, chairs for table games usually have a smaller footprint and 4-Legged bases are the preferred option.
