Our old-fashioned family philosophy…

Our business began in the 50’s and our philosophy is this; Treat each customer as we would like to be treated. It’s old fashioned, but tried and true. It has built our reputation. Ask our customers.

A little more about us…

 In addition to our retail store, we are licensed to supply charitable gaming supplies to clients all over the Chicagoland area and surrounding states (Wisconsin & Iowa. You can click HERE for more information on license distribution).  Many of our customers come to us because they are raising money for their charity, church or community group. This is a unique opportunity for us to see people/groups in their area at their very best!

We have customers representing the cultures and businesses that represent Chicago – customers who we have known for over 50 years. We pride ourselves in helping them meet their needs and we enjoy watching them grow.
