Heading down south from Johannesburg, many a traveller has come across the Emerald Resort & Casino. Not only is this conferencing, gaming and relaxation venue the real jewel of the Vaal, but it also offers something for every person of every age. The kids can enjoy the animal world, the Aquadome and a number of other facilities, while grown-ups can visit the sports bar, dine at the many restaurants, relax at the African Spa or even try their luck on the extensive casino floor. Who could ask for more all in one amazing package? Add to that the premium accommodation and conferencing facilities, and you have something that beyond incredible.

The casino is one of the leading gaming hubs in the entire country and with both smoking and non-smoking rooms, both of which are packed with games, has something to offer everyone. The classic and video slot machines are aplenty with those that take as little as just a cent to those that go up to R50, ensuring that both new and more experienced players are catered for. Don’t forget those progressives either. As for the table games, there are 27 on the floor, which means you can skip from roulette to blackjack to progressive jackpot poker in just a few steps. This kind of gaming convenience is all neatly packaged in the beautifully designed casino, but what really sparkles has to be the Prive Lounge, a members-only section in Gold and Diamond cardholders can enjoy VIP treatment and private gaming to their hearts’ content.
