Sun City revamp gaining traction


The multi-million rand revamp of Sun City Casino, in South Africa’s North-West province, is well under way, with the project scheduled for completion in November 2014. Over $4.5 million is being invested in refreshing and rejuvenating the casino which was Sun International’s first gaming facility, established in 1979.

The refurbishment of the casino will offer a greater choice of machines and an improved ambiance with more space and a better configuration.

The non-smoking gaming floor will offer 323 slot machines and 10 tables.

For the first time, there will be a Reward Centre located next to the MVG centre. To improve drinks service on the floor, there will be a walk-up bar and service bar in the middle of the non-smoking casino.

The upper center core will be reconfigured with a new, upmarket venue, Cherry Bar. The entire area will have an improved look and feel with new lighting and carpets.

Sun City’s accommodation options include the Palace of the Lost City; the 5-star Cascades Hotel; the 4-star Sun City Hotel & Casino; the 3-star, family-friendly Cabanas Hotel, and the self-catering Vacation Club. The resort offers a selection of restaurants, retail stores, take-away food outlets, night clubs, bars, cinemas, cafes, and two championship golf courses.
