Karo casino chairs for poker machines and table games

The profitability of many clubs, pubs and casinos is influenced by these unglamorous, taken-for-granted objects…..the poker machine chairs on your gaming floor!

One of the questions you may ask when you are about to purchase new chairs for your club, pub or casino is, “how do I choose the right poker machine, or pokie stools, for my venue?”

Your budget obviously plays a major role, but other factors include comfort, durability and the aesthetic design of the stools. Karo has been manufacturing high quality office and poker machine chairs since 1986. We sell a broad spectrum of stools to gaming venues across the globe. Because slot stools may have such a profound impact on the profitability of your venue, we want to ensure they meet your requirements and keep your patrons comfortable.

Do poker machine chairs really matter in clubs and casinos?
YES they DO!

“To a large degree the fortunes of gaming establishments, from the smallest neighborhood pub or hotel, to the largest club or casino, literally sit on this item.”

Thomas Moore, The Las Vegas Sun

Thomas is of course referring to the rather humble gaming stool, so YES, poker machine chairs DO matter! These rather simple-looking chairs can have a significant impact on the comfort of your patrons, not to mention the profitability of your venue.

Comfort is critical

A player’s first interaction with any poker machine game is the chair. Not the control panel, look of the machine, flashing lights or anything else. It’s the chair, and that’s why the comfort of the chair is critical.

If a patron is sitting on an uncomfortable chair or has a sore back, they will soon move to another venue where the stools are comfortable. A more comfortable stool may increase the length of time a patron spends in your venue, and this may improve the profitability of your gaming room.

For any poker machine room, chairs that are easy to move and have a big comfortable seat, will generally be a ‘winner’ with the patrons. Our moulded foam technology enables us to produce automotive-grade foam seats and backrests that provide exceptional comfort. To improve the manoeuverability of our chairs, in 2013 we developed our Ezi-Glide Disc Base that enables our chairs to “glide almost effortlessly” across the floor of your gaming room. Furthermore, for greater durability and luxury, the standard seat upholstery on our VIP ranges is leather and not vinyl. Leather vs Vinyl Upholstery for Casino Chairs – Which is Best?

When we design new poker machine chairs, we draw on our vast experience in manufacturing ergonomic office chairs. By understanding what actually happens when you sit, we are able to design our products with human physiology in mind. Our objective is to manufacture chairs that:

  • Offer superior comfort to your patrons to improve their gaming experience.
  • Are extremely durable.
  • Reduce your maintenance costs.
  • Provide the best possible return on investment.

It’s all about COMFORT

The comfort of any poker machine chair is largely determined by the quality and design of its SEAT FOAM.

Moulded foam technology

The seat foam plays a significant role in creating a comfortable stool. When we design our poker machine chairs, the seat foam is initially hand-sculpted to create the perfect shape. Once the shape has been tested and proven to be ergonomically correct, we develop the tooling for the moulded foam seat. Moulded foam has long been recognised by ergonomic experts as being able to deliver the best support and cushioning for anyone that sits for an extended period of time.


We are not a retailer of another manufacturer’s products. At Karo, we manufacture all our poker machine chairs in-house and sell them directly to you. Without the middle-man, we ensure that you receive the most competitive price. What factors influence the price of casino chairs?

Upholstery of Poker Machine Chairs

Our gaming stools can be upholstered in either fabric, vinyl or leather. The variety of options is simply huge. At the top-end of the scale is leather upholstery, which is both luxurious and extremely durable. As a standard, we now upholster the black seats of our VIP ranges in genuine Italian leather, and not vinyl. If you prefer vinyl or fabric, we can of course upholster your seats in the material of your choice!

Design Innovation for Poker Machine Chairs

To keep ahead of the competition, we constantly develop new and innovative components and products. For example

  • Our pedestal base pokie stools are assembled using a unique ‘taper-lock’ system. Because they are not welded, the chairs will never wobble or accidentally separate. This distinctive feature allows us to pack the chairs in a highly compact manner to reduce freight costs. On-site assembly is quick and can be accomplished in less than 10 seconds without the need of any tools.
  • The Quick-Release seats on our poker machine chairs enable you to exchange a soiled or damaged seat cushion within minutes right on the gaming floor. The damaged cushion can then be cleaned or repaired without any significant stool down-time or impact on your gaming revenue.
  • Our glue-free upholstery process means that the re-upholstery of your gaming chairs is simpler, cheaper and environmentally friendly.

Customise your poker machine chairs

We offer many options and finishes so you can customise your chairs to suit your gaming environment. For example:

  • embroidery on the outside backrest of the stool.
  • PVC edge protection.
  • fabric, vinyl or leather upholstery.
  • various swivel mechanisms and gas height adjustment.
  • powdercoated, chrome and brass plated finishes.
