Hemingways Casino has cooked up a feast to satisfy the craving for fun and the thirst for entertainment these holidays. With a jam-packed menu of activities, promotions and specials, no one will be starved for entertainment in December.
One of the highlights of the casino’s festive season itinerary includes the Carols by Candlelight event with Rick Earth, at 5pm on Saturday the 17th of December 2011 in the Hemingways Amphitheatre at the Hemingways Casino Complex. Candles will be on sale at the event at a cost of R10 per candle and the proceeds will be donated to a deserving charity.

There are also a number of gaming promotions on the boil including the Top Dog Poker Tournament. There are 40 seats available in this tournament which takes place from the 16th to the 18th of December 2011. All entries will be taken on first come first serve basis. Entry to the tournament is R11 000. This includes R40 000 in competition chips, food and drinks at the heats and finals, and dinner on Saturday the 17th of December. There will also be a R2 200 Freeze out starting at 20:00 on Friday the 16th of December. Seats for this competition are limited to 20 players.

Another gaming promotion that is ongoing through the Festive season is Red Hot Chair. Club Festival members can earn double points when they sit at slot machine with a red chair on Wednesdays. Brave couples can win big prizes in Hemingways Casino’s frivolously fun “Check Your Mate” game in which R10 000 in prizes can be won every week until the 28th of December. It’s free to play. People can enter by filling in an entry form at the Club Desk. All entries will go into a lucky draw which takes place every Wednesday evening at the casino at 7pm. Six couples will be drawn from the tombola to participate in the Check Your Mate face off just after that. Participants will be asked to answer ten questions and the couple with the most points wins.

From an entertainment perspective, visitors can enjoy live music by Rick Earth every Sunday between 18:00 and 21:00, a choice of the latest movies at Hemingways Cinema, and numerous activities at the adjoining Hemingways Mall.

“We pride ourselves on delivering first class, non-stop entertainment for the whole family, and this festive season we’re going full throttle. Day or night, you will find something to do at Hemingways Casino,” says the casino’s marketing manager, Neville Austin.

He says that in addition to the array of promotions and events, visitors should also look out for the many food and beverage specials running throughout the holidays. These include, amongst others, the competition with Savanna in which there is a nifty trailer to be won. To be in the running, customers purchasing a Savanna Dry or Savanna Light at the casino before the 31st of January 2012 simply have to fill in an entry card and drop it in the entry box at the casino.
