The casino equipment and rental industry can be divided into a few main categories: the manufacturer, the company offering the equipment, gaming companies, and standard casinos.
The first, and most important, part of this industry is the manufacturer. This is the place where the slot machines, blackjack tables, and roulette wheels are actually made. These factories may work closely with large casinos to customize orders, or they may work on an individual basis, selling their equipment in the retail market. They may also have an online site that provides party rentals of poker tables, chairs, chips, and other merchandise for gambling parties.
The second part of the casino equipment and rental industry is the physical retail store, where the rent and sell equipment. These stores can be large party stores, or can be smaller, custom stores that deal only in gambling products. They should have all the supplies for those looking to host a poker tournament, or have a casino themed party night. Some of their standard merchandise includes cards, dice, chips, and other gambling materials.
We then have the traveling casino companies, which can be hired to bring all of the equipment to the party, set up, and even provide dealers to help manage the party. These companies are hired for the night, and typically have their own craps tables, roulette tables, and games. This means you do not have to rent this stuff individually.
Finally, we have the large casinos, which stock everything from slot machines to blackjack tables to keep their customers happy and entertained. These companies should rent or buy all of their equipment directly from manufacturers, so they typically do not influence the retail market.
