bases for casing chairs and gaming stools

There are 3 basic types of bases that can be fitted to any casino chair, namely Disc, 4-Legged or 5-Star. A common question we are asked is, “which casino chair base is best?”

Choosing the type of base of your gaming stools is a question of  cost, practicality and aesthetics.

Disc bases have been popular for a long time, but recently stools on 4-Legs have become popular. The reason mainly relates to their cost, stability, ease of maintenance, and that they are suitable for all floor coverings. So, which base is best?

The answer is not as straight forward as it seems, so here is a table that compares the various base options and lists their advantages and disadvantages.
