SLOT SEATING
Many things have changed in the casino industry since the early days, not the least of which is
that slot machines, affectionately referred to as one-arm bandits, were originally designed to
play while standing up.
It was in the 1950’s that a young entrepreneur, George Gasser, while making a sales call at
Harvey’s casino in Lake Tahoe, noticed that several gamblers were taking stools from the bar over
to the slot area in order to sit while playing the machines. He quickly realized that players who
had seats would generally play the machines longer and, armed with that new-found knowledge,
returned home to Youngstown, Ohio to build one of the casino industry’s first slot stools – a
simple round seat and basic 4-leg frame with a footrest, the Gasser model #218.
It didn’t take long for operators to see that providing seats to slot players generally resulted in
increased playing time at the machines and, therefore, more revenue for the casino.
Gasser has been an innovator since its earliest days in business... creating new styles, improving
functionality and humanizing comfort... always to solve a seating problem, enhance an operation
or simply make life easier.
Gasser chairs don’t merely perform... they
dazzle!
