Celebs fly high at Tsogo Sun’s Roulette Masters

Tsogo Sun’s three Gauteng entertainment destinations, Gold Reef City, Silverstar Casino & Montecasino were the setting for the group’s Roulette Masters showcase.


Local ‘jet-setters’ – celebrities and leading media representatives – enjoyed a never-to-be-forgotten experience featuting

a helicopter round trip, gaming and dining at each destination before heading back to Gold Reef City for a grand final, prizegiving dinner and overnight stay.


The high flyers’ adrenalin-packed Tsogo Sun adventure included participating in the Roulette Masters tournament at each destination and enjoying a taste of the newly revamped Gold Reef City.

The guest list included some of SA’s hottest celebs, including Maps Maponyane, Jonathan Boynton-Lee, Katlego Mohauduba and Armand du Plessis.

Roulette Masters launched countrywide on 11 January at Tsogo Sun’s 14 casinos with prizes valued at a whopping grand total R2.5 million and a guaranteed first prize of R1.5 million.

Qualifying rounds are taking place at the respective casinos until 3 March and the unit finals will happen on 5 March, followed by the group semi-finals and grand final at Silverstar on 19 March.

“This tournament has become a hot favourite among our players over the three years that it has been running, and enabling some of our local celebrities to experience the nail-biting fun first hand at different destinations highlighted the thrills that Roulette Masters offers every player,” says Steve Hight, Tsogo Sun’s Director of Gaming.

A separate mini-tournament within Roulette Masters was part of the day’s entertainment, with celebrities competing against each other at the three destinations for the prestige of the top spot – and Tsogo Sun experiences – at the end of the three rounds.

“It was a breath-taking day of fun and excitement at every turn – for every person who took part in the experience,” says Hight. “It was a pleasure to show off the wonderful offerings at our three properties, particularly the new developments at Gold Reef City, while also giving our guests the chance to spin the wheel in our winning Roulette Masters tournament. We believe that once people experience the delights at our entertainment destinations, they’ll come back again and again for more. It’s our philosophy to make sure every experience is a memorable one at all Tsogo Sun’s properties.”
