What is the difference between our Budget, Mid-Range and High-End Casino Chairs?

budget vs VIP gaming stools

There are so many options available, but what is the difference between casino chairs when comparing Budget, Mid-Range and High-End stools?

Before answering this question, it is important to define what is meant by ‘budget’, ‘mid-range’ and ‘high-end’. Every supplier will have their own definition that is based on their pricing structure. As far as Karo products are concerned, we use the following broad definition:

Which is best?

There is no right or wrong answer….it is a matter of how much money you have available to spend on your new gaming or pokie stools. However, the dollar spend should be weighed up against the following:

a)  The comfort you are going to provide to your patrons. A budget chair may not provide the comfort that your patrons demand.
As recently described by William Sokolic, a more comfortable stool may increase the length of time an average patron spends in your venue, and this can improve the profitability of your gaming room. In other words, a comfortable but more expensive stool, may increase your gaming revenue and pay for itself.

Before selecting a budget or high-end VIP stool, have you tested various stools on your gaming floor and asked your patrons what type of stool they prefer?

b)  The expected life of the stools. Beware of cheap stools that may only last a short time before needing replacement. A better quality, but more expensive stool, may actually save you money in the long-term.
