As an exclusive offer to its Green Emerald Rewards cardholders, Emerald Resort & Casino has launched its ‘Drinks on Us’ promotion, only available in the casino.

We haven’t forgotten about our teetotallers, all Emeralds Rewards cardholders can still enjoy free coffee, tea and water whilst playing.

This is a great initiative by our team and has been extremely well received by our guests.”Once a guest earns 50 points after playing Slots, they’ll receive a message on the machine telling them they’ve earned a free drink. “Guests then simply take their Green Rewards cards to the self-service kiosk and print out their Drinks on Us! voucher. These can be redeemed at any of the bars on the casino floor,” says Tanuja.

Joining Emerald Rewards is absolutely free and is open to persons from 18 years of age and older, with three tiers of cards, namely Green, Gold and Diamond. Tier progression is based on points earned on slots and tables.

Emerald Resort & Casino keeps local girls in school

Young female students face great challenges in terms of hygiene and sanitation at school. To assist, and as part of its main Corporate Social Initiative (CSI) project, Emerald Resort & Casino will be supplying 600 school girls with a year’s supply of sanitary towels.

“Our support for this initiative is based on statistics. Many girls in South Africa will miss on average four days of school every month, which translates to over a month a year, purely as a result of not being able to afford necessities like sanitary towels,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “This means that they could possibly fall behind in class or even dropout of school altogether.

Directors Peter Ponoane and Dan Senekwala with Emerald Resort & Casino’s Tanuja Gangabishun

The lack of feminine hygiene products is an added challenge to pre-existing problems that lead to the high dropout rate of female students in primary and secondary schools.”

To date over 250 sanitary packs have already been distributed to Batloung Intermediary School, Tshirela Primary School, Dr Nhlapo Intermediary School  and Vukuzakhe Primary School. During the course 2017, a further 350 will be distributed to schools in the local Vaal area.

“It is important for the positive growth of education and our future that these girls stay in school, receive a proper education and to make the most of every day,” concludes Tanuja.

Should any companies in the Vaal area wish to assist with extending this project even further, they are welcome to make contact with me!”

Watch Manchester at Old Trafford!

Emerald Resort & Casino has given away three all-expense paid trips to Manchester, England – and there are three more to be won! Lucky winners will have the opportunity to watch one of the biggest premier football clubs in the world, Manchester United, take on Newcastle United in November 2017.

 The prize includes an all-expenses paid trip, accommodation and VIP suite tickets to the Old Trafford stadium.

“We know that Manchester United football club has an exceptional following and support base in South Africa,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “What better prize for a supporter to win than a trip to Old Trafford, the largest stadium in British club football, to watch the  action live and in person?”

For the dedicated Manchester United fans, here are a few facts. Statistics date back to 1895. In 163 games, Manchester United have beaten Newcastle United 83 times, drawn 39 games and only lost 41 times. Pundits are already predicting who will be victorious later this year in this epic battle.

This promotion is open for the entire month of September (draw takes place on Thursday 5 October).

Participants will be tracked according to points earned during their game play on tables and slots for each of the promotional periods and results will be displayed on a leader-board situated within the casino’s Salon Privé.  The top 20 on slots and top 10 on tables on the leader-board will qualify for the various draws. Draw tickets will be issued in the Salon Privé on the day of the draw and draws take place at 21h00.

“It is through our affiliation with Caesars Entertainment that we can offer South Africans and guests to Emerald Resort & Casino these unique prizes,” concludes Tanuja. “This prize is added to some of the very memorable prizes given away in the past. Guests have won cruises to Greek Islands; we’ve given away cars, trips to Vegas and seats to international casino tournaments just to mention a few.

Will home ground advantage help ManU add another win to their an already impressive stats? We look forward to sending guests to what will undoubtedly be a trip of a lifetime this November!”

Defeat the meat and eat for free!

Emerald Resort & Casino’s restaurants High Stakes and Breeze have introduced a challenge to all meat lovers – finish a meal that includes a 2kg  T-bone steak within an hour, get the meal for free and a place on the Wall of Fame.

Brave diners visiting the Resort are invited to take on the Emerald steak challenge – a steak that is 10 times bigger than your average 200g serving.

“It’s not a challenge for the faint of heart,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “Enjoy this T-Bone with chips, onion rings, creamed spinach and crumbed mushrooms and a choice of a draught or milkshake.”

This gastronomic gauntlet costs R500.00, but then again it’s free if consumed within an hour.

Here are a few tips to assist in conquering the challenge: besides being juicer and tastier, make sure that the steak is rare/medium rare – cutting, chewing and swallowing is a lot easier. Cut the steak into small pieces and eat the steak first. Above all, enjoy the meal and remember that proper dining etiquette is still required – no eating with hands!

“This meal is huge and could bring a tear to the eye of even the biggest of meat lovers,” concludes Tanuja. “Are you up for the challenge? We dare you!”
