The New Year ushers in new life at Emerald!

This January there is a brand new dappled bundle of joy at Emerald Resort & Casino’s Animal World. The Resort is proud to announce the birth of their first giraffe calf.According to the zoo’s manager, Elana Smalberger, the calf and mother are both doing very well, although the calf is still not completely sure what he is supposed to do with his newly found long legs. Overall he is happy and healthy and is freely roaming around the Game Park.

Three giraffes (two females and a male) were introduced to Emerald’s Game Park about four years ago. After being in labour for just over two and a half hours, Emerald Resort & Casino’s first ever giraffe calf was born on Sunday afternoon at approximately 14h20 and already stands 1,5m tall.

The calf will be named by the Resort’s Facebook followers in a competition offering the person that comes up with the best name (as selected by Emerald Resort & Casino’s management team) will win Midweek Break for two that will include a game drive.Visitors to Animal World will be able to view the calf in the Game Park whist on a game drive. It may however be difficult to guarantee that the calf will be seen every game drive as he will still be hidden at times. For more information on the game drives please have a look at https://www.emeraldcasino.co.za/resort-experiences/game-drives.

When visiting the Resort’s Animal World, why not say a fond ‘hello’ to the resident teenage hippo ‘Bubbles’. This hippo, now six years old, has been hand raised by the Animal World team and can always be spotted with her best friend ‘Bok’ – the goat.To view all promotions, events and more, visitors to the casino are encouraged to stay close to their Facebook and Twitter pages, or guests can visit www.emeraldcasino.co.za for more information.

Please note that Game Drives begin and end inside Animal World. Entry to the zoo must therefore be paid in addition to the game drive fee. Game Drives cannot be booked as a stand-alone activity.

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.

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!”
