Budget vs Mid-Range vs 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:

Galaxy casino chair and gaming stool
From $500
platinum 4-legged gaming stool and casino slot chair
From $590
Monte carlo casino chair gaming stool with quick-release seat and ezi-glide disc base and chrome centre-column

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

Which is best?

There is no right or wrong answer….it depends on your budget. However, the dollar spend should be weighed up against the following:

  • 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.
  • 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.
