Display-Based Games Parts Replacement

With new casinos being built from England to Vietnam and the recent US Supreme Court Ruling on sports betting the number of display-based games is increasing dramatically. This increase is not just due to new facilities and opportunities, but also because of monetary return.

David Schwartz, the Director of the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, states it best in his Forbes article, “How Casinos Use Math To Make Money When You Play The Slots.”

“Slot machines remain the most important money-making part of casinos in the United States. In many states, casinos make between 65 and 80 percent of their gambling income from slots. In Las Vegas, the percentage varies from 88 percent in casinos that cater primarily to locals to 50 percent on the Las Vegas Strip, where high rollers betting tens of thousands a dollar a hand skews the results in favor of table games.”

While these games offer greater customer interactivity and engagement, they come with different replacement part challenges. Navigating the shark infested waters of LCD panel sourcing can be dangerous. It is filled with scams, frauds, and unknowledgeable vendors. Whether you are a casino, sports bar, or repair shop, you need the right LCD panel the first time. Every second your game is out of order you’re losing money.

Industry LCD Shortage

Recently, the display panel industry has been facing new changes and developments that may affect the global supply chain. Through a series of market forces such as reinvestments, new more promising technologies, and the reallocation of priorities have caused there to be a significant impact on the production and subsequently the availability of small and medium-sized color TFT panels, in addition to premium IPS wide screens.

What happened?

In short, major Korean manufacturers of these mid-sized panels have recently gone through a change in market strategy, from developing small panels to researching and producing newer more profitable displays.


Due to a recent increase in the production of small panels in China, some of Korea’s prominent panel manufacturers such as LG and Samsung have begun to move towards large-sized LCD panels and OLED panels. Smaller TFTs will ultimately prove to be no longer profitable as the lower-cost manufacturing in China will reduce profits for Korean panel manufacturers.
