Grosvenor G Casino Manchester was on display for all to see at Boundary Park on Tuesday as Oldham Athletic took on Yeovil Town.
Casinos are often involved in sponsoring sports events, seeing it as an opportunity to spread name awareness to a wider audience. This was certainly the case on Tuesday, when the casino sponsored the match which was won by the home team, known as the Lactics, 1-nil, taking them a step closer to survival, in npower League 1.
The Sponsors Suite was turned into a casino for the night, giving people the chance to experience casino games, in a fun setting. As well as having a range of games to offer people, including the ever popular blackjack, there were also opportunities to win a range of prizes, including nights out at the Manchester G Casino.
There was a buffet and canapés to enjoy and there were appearances from players, both past and present, before and after the match. Also part of the ticket price was a bar, car park pass, team sheet, match programme and the chance to watch the match from the comfort of the Sponsors Suite.
There are now 36 Grosvenor casinos scattered throughout the UK and events like this are a seen as a way of raising their profile, in a very competitive field.
