Harrods, the famous London luxury department store, plans to reopen its online casino (www.harrods-casino.com) as early as January. Harrods closed its casino last month after its software agreement with Gaming Internet plc terminated.
Kismet International (www.kismetstudios.com) will provide the software for the new casino. Kismet was formerly known as GoldPlay.
“We are delighted to be selected by Harrods, and look forward to providing a superior gaming experience, of the type players expect from Harrods’ luxury brand,” Kismet’s chief executive, Manu Gambhir, said.
Harrods has declined to provide data on the financial success of its online casino.
Piggs Peak Will Send Player on Safari
KINGDOM OF SWAZILAND — Something wild is going on at Piggs Peak Casino.
Instead of stuffing players’ stockings with the standard holiday bonuses, Piggs Peak plans to send one lucky player to travel through the wilds of South Africa on an all-expenses paid safari.
The winner of Santa’s Safari Sweepstakes will embark on the trip of a lifetime with his or her guest of choice: three nights at Sabi-Sabi game reserve and three nights at the luxurious Piggs Peak Resort & Casino in Swaziland. All flights, meals and safari drives, as well as $1,000 in spending money, will be included in the prize package.
“We want to give our online players a taste of our on-land Casino,” said Piggs Peak spokesperson, Francois Vorster. “We have a beautiful resort and Casino located in the breathtaking mountains of Southern Africa. It would be a pleasure to introduce one of our online players to the complete Piggs Peak experience.”
The Safari Sweepstakes is part of Piggs Peak’s campaign to give players a Christmas they’ll never forget. The Casino is also giving away five Microsoft X-Box Gaming Consoles throughout December in its X-Box, X-Mas Sweepstakes.
“We wanted to give our players truly special Christmas gifts,” Vorster said. “Other casinos are sticking to the standard points & cash giveaways, but at Piggs Peak we wanted to offer something a bit more exotic.”
Both promotions are running at Piggs Peak Casino and its sister casino, Jackpots in a Flash, until the end of the month.
