The Ridge Casino – Fun for all the Family

 
07 January 2016 by Katy La Grange

Gone are the days where Casinos can market themselves as providers of adult only fun. Now they have to have a suite of child friendly add-ons to keep the whole family entertained.

When it comes to family fun the Ridge Casino and Entertainment Complex in eMalahleni (formerly Witbank) has it covered. Whether it is a movie, Putt-Putt and Ten-Pin bowling for the older teens, fun and games in the Magic Company or even the crèche for younger kids. The Ridge Casino has something for everyone!

Opened in 2002, next to the Highveld Mall, the Ridge Casino is part of the biggest Mall and Entertainment Complex in Mpumalanga. With three gambling rooms, including the main non-smoking room, the smoking lounge and the Salon Prive for VIP guests, one can see why the Ridge has built up its large and loyal fan base. 

With 450 slot machines and the ever popular roulette tables, five blackjack stations and three poker tables, the Ridge has earned its reputation as Mpumalanga’s Vegas! Certainly the big money jackpots and numerous high value prizes on offer across the casino ensure there is always an air of anticipation, a touch of glamour and the feeling that winning big is just around the corner!

Yet the Ridge Entertainment Complex is not all about gambling. It’s a place to bring the whole family, where you can view the latest 3D Hollywood blockbuster on one of the 6 big screens, or play an 18-hole round of putt-putt on their crazy golf course and have change from R30. Why not challenge the kids to a game of Ten-Pin bowling, before heading off to the magic company. There is even a crèche for the younger kids.

Add to this the suite of eateries. Including the mouth-watering ‘live cooking’ buffets of the Billy G Buffet Restaurant which combines the freshness of a la carte with the convenience of a buffet, to the best hotdogs in town, courtesy of Hotdog Harry, and its clear to see the Ridge Casino and Entertainment Complex has all your entertainment needs on a plate.

With two fabulous hotels on site delivering a range of accommodation options, the Ridge Casino is the perfect night out where you won’t need to worry about the drive home. The beautiful Southern Sun Ridge Hotel offers an ‘out of city experience’, where visitors can relax in tranquil surroundings sipping cocktails by the pool. Or alternatively enjoy a night at the StayEasy eMalahleni that provides affordable, comfortable accommodation for guests more intent on the Ridge’s other entertainments. 

Whether it’s a night of opulence or simply a great day out with the kids, the Ridge Casino and Entertainment Complex is a one stop shop for family fun and a spot of “high-rolling”!
