Margate casino goes for gold
A Margate casino will celebrate a special 50 years anniversary with a party night on Saturday 22 August.
Genting Casino Margate in Zion Place will have live entertainment from local band Hotsy Totsy, free canapés and a glass of bubbly for guests, plus a gold balloons promotion offering the chance to win prizes. Those attending can also donate £5 to receive extra balloons with the funds going to the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution).
The winners of a free prize draw will also be announced during the evening. The top prize is a stay at Resorts World Birmingham, a £150 million development which is the UK’s first integrated destination leisure complex and opens later this year.
Marketing advocate Dan Davis said: “We wanted to celebrate 50 years of Genting with a fun night. All are welcome to join us.”
It is 50 years since Genting’s founder Tan Sri Lim was inspired to create a hill resort during a visit to Cameron Highlands in Malaysia. Genting casinos around the UK are holding special events for the anniversary.
