Casino reaches new heights to celebrate birthday

Date Posted:25/09/2014

Casino MK zip wireThis month, The Casino MK celebrated its first birthday in style as it played host to the UK’s most extreme game of zip wire roulette.

On 5th and 6th September, visitors to the UK’s second Super Casino were able to zip wire from the top of the Xscape MK building onto a giant roulette wheel for just £5. More than 200 people took part to raise an incredible £805 for The Aspinall Foundation; the conservation charity established by John Aspinall, father of Damian Aspinall who set up Aspers Casinos.

Olympic badminton medallist Gail Emms MBE also took part in the zip wire roulette; “I never thought I’d zip wire from the top of the Xscape building. I was shaking; it was such an adrenaline rush!”

“The zip wire roulette was a fantastic event and raised an incredible donation for a cause close to our hearts”, said Luke Perkins, assistant general manager at The Casino MK, who also took on the zip wire challenge. “Being the largest Casino outside of London, we had to go bigger and better than ever when it came to celebrating our first birthday. We hope everyone enjoyed taking part as much as we enjoyed playing host to the extreme zip wire event.”

“These celebrations, and what we have achieved in the past year, have cemented our reputation as one of the region’s leading entertainment destinations. Following the success of our first year of operation, we are pleased to announce that we will be creating 20 new jobs at The Casino MK in the next few months.”
