South Africa – TCS John Huxley delivers turn-key project for Mthatha’s first casinoBy Phil - 24 January 2019
TCS John Huxley recently competed a prestigious turn-key project for Mthatha’s first licensed casino, Mayfair Casino.
The project encompassed all live table gaming equipment for the brand new casino which is set to open to the public in early December. The R100m world-class entertainment centre forms part of developer, Billion Group’s ongoing mission to bring aspirational developments to areas that would not otherwise have access to them.
Comprising a shopping mall, four-star luxury hotel and casino, the new development has taken just under a year to complete. TCSJOHNHUXLEY worked closely with Billions Group throughout the project to ensure all the live gaming equipment reflected their vision for the landmark casino opening in the Western Cape’s third largest city. Located next to the newly opened Mayfair hotel the casino consists of two gaming areas, the main floor and a luxurious Prive.
TCS John Huxley designed and installed all gaming tables and a selection of their world renowned Roulette wheels. To mirror the modern aesthetic of the main gaming floor the tables feature mahogany gaming bases with vibrant red armrests and minimalist silver ombre layouts. Creating a feeling of opulence, the Prive showcase TCS John Huxley popular Burlesque tables with black glitterati upholstered bases and black leather armrests. Each gaming area also showcases Chipper Champ 2 chipping machines, Elite winning number displays, Fournier playing cards and Matsui chips and wheelchecks.
Patrick Beney, General manager of Mayfair Casino, said: “As Billion Group’s first venture into gaming and as the first licensed casino in Mthatha, Mayfair Casino was an important and prominent casino opening. We chose to work with TCS John Huxley as we knew that would be a fantastic partner, able to deliver world-class, live gaming equipment, which reflected the gaming atmosphere we were aiming to create. We have not been disappointed. TCS John Huxley’ attention to detail, service and quality products have surpassed our expectations and we are delighted with the end result.”
