Emerald surprises over 200 orphans in the Vaal!

This past week Emerald Resort & Casino hosted over 200 youngsters from orphanages across the Vaal and surprised them with a Christmas party at Aquadome while also taking the opportunity to donate a new pair of school shoes to each child.

“This year in particular has affected us all deeply in some way or another, but there are those that have been impacted even more harshly, none more so than orphaned Vaal children,” says Gloria Mokoana, Learning & Development Manager at Emerald Resort & Casino. “Not only do these kids deserve to get spoiled every so often, but it is important to ensure that they do not feel left out when returning to school next year!”

To make their year just that little bit more bearable, Emerald Resort & Casino hosted a Christmas party for over 200 of these underprivileged kids from local orphanages based in Vanderbijlpark, Bophelong, Sebokeng and Sharpville at the Resort’s popular indoor waterpark – the Aquadome. Orphanages included Lochvaal Emfuleni, Relebohile Children’s Home, Bophelong Children’s home, Haemona Childrens Home, Matwala Children’s Home, Childline, Good Hope Care Centre and VGSA.

Which child does not love to swim and play in the pool? At Aquadome, no matter their ability, the kids were spoilt for choice, water slides past an old ship wreck, a long slow drift in the lazy river and the shallow pools. At the party, and looked after by some amazing lifeguards and the Emerald team, the kids were spoiled with lunch, swimming and time on the jumping castles before each child was presented with a brand-new pair of school shoes.

“It was a special time to see their faces light up and really enjoying themselves at Aquadome,” concludes Gloria. “Many people take the small necessities, like shoes, and just being able to play in a safe environment for granted and we were pleased to able to bring some Christmas cheer to the kids.”

Local pub and grill Gas Monkey moves to Emerald!

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that Emerald Resort & Casino welcomes the popular and iconic, Gas Monkey Pub & Grill to the Resort! The move is currently underway with an expected opening towards the end of September.

Taking over the previous space that Sports Bar and Breeze occupied, Gas Monkey are in the process of converting the Breeze area into the new dining and bar space while the Sports Bar gets transformed into a space for music, entertainment, DJ’s and dancing over weekends.

“Visitors to the Resort will see some large scale changes happening where Breeze and Sports Bar used to be,“ says  Mark Hands, Resort Director at Emerald Resort & Casino. “Work has already begun on the transformation and we expect Gas Monkey will be serving their very first signature dishes and drinks as soon as the end of September.”

According to owners of Gas Monkey, Graham Duncan and Shawn Delport, discussions with Emerald Resort & Casino have been ongoing for over 12 months as they had outgrown their current location and with the further need for social distancing, things just did not stack up.

“It is a rare opportunity to be able to work with a brand like Emerald Resort & Casino and we intend to grow Gas Monkey even further given the opportunity that we now have. Over and above this new space being a lot larger than our old one, there are a number of other advantages to the move. These include introducing a children’s play area, a large outside area under the Lapa which will not be affected by the rain or cold, the opportunity to have live entertainment again, separation of the dining area from the dancing area and more importantly a much better experience for our valued customers.”

The menu has had an overhaul too with many new dishes added. The dining area will focus on family and the new menu reflects this dining experience. “We’ll also be taking over the wood fired oven outside to serve pizza, which is a totally new aspect to our offering.”

As before, signature dishes include various delicious Jaffles and Monkey Pots of different sorts. The speciality Gatsbys and Signature Burger is something that everyone must try, not forgetting the popular Hulk/Monkey juice. The pub and grill is renowned for this secret alcoholic slushy which is bound to get visitors coming back for more. Yet another first on offer will be their thirst quenching cocktails, available on tap.

“The whole ethos of Gas Monkey in terms of catering to families, fits in so well with our views and offerings that families have come to expect at the Resort,” concludes Mark. “We look forward to working together closely with Graham and Shawn to provide our guests with even more entertainment and culinary experiences.”

Graham concludes: ”We would like to take a moment to thank Emerald Resort & Casino for this great opportunity and especially our loyal customers for their support over the past three and a half years, we truly appreciate everyone’s support and hope to see everyone enjoying themselves at our new venue and home – soon.”

Emerald hosts first ever virtual Casino draw

For the first time ever, over a period of two evenings, Emerald Resort & Casino hosted their very first virtual winners draw that saw the culmination of the Revved Up casino promotion.

With this in mind we decided that the best way to celebrate the reopening of the Casino would be to host our first virtual draw,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino.

“The Casino Promotion, “Revved Up” where gamers earned points into the draw and the opportunity to participate in exciting Slots and Table action, gave us the perfect opportunity as the promotion had already ended and it was time to celebrate our Rewards cardholders.

The Casino is open every day from 08:00 to 21:30 and I’m pleased to announce the launch of our newest casino promotion, Mega Points Chase, where R250 000 in cash and Freeplay are up for grabs. The final draw will once again be livestreamed on Saturday, 12 September,” says Tanuja.

With the Hotel and Bush Lodges now open for leisure travel within the province, Emerald Resort & Casino takes pride in delivering a great guest experience. The company has been working hard behind the scenes to create environments where guests and team members feel safe, comfortable and are still able to enjoy themselves.

“Congratulations to all the winners! We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Resort as the lockdown restrictions ease and even more activities are opened,” concludes Tanuja.
