The bespoke taxi - complete with both live and online game play will arrive outside Grosvenor Merchant City Casino this Friday 17th June, following its launch by Phil Tufnell in London, as part of a three-week journey across the UK.
Passengers will have the choice of being taken to their local Grosvenor Casino free of charge, or to be driven anywhere in the city for an optional donation to Carers Trust – the company’s chosen charity. To request a ride in Grosvenor Casinos’ World’s Smallest Travelling Casino, consumers just need to tweet @grosvenorcasino with #playyourway and say where they are and where they want to go.
Grosvenor Casinos’ World’s Smallest Travelling Casino includes a gaming table where the dealer will give quick free play lessons in Blackjack and online gaming using a tablet. It will also have TV screens showing sports events and a bar.
Following the launch in London, the taxi headed north visiting Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds. It will reach its final destination this Friday 17 June in Glasgow.
Phil Tufnell said: “I’m happy to be a part of such an exciting and innovative experience. The whole idea of it is just fun; summer’s here, we’re bringing fun to the people and offering to take them anywhere, in five of the UK’s biggest and busiest cities.
"We’ll have games, beers, and of course there’s the charitable element too – it’s just a wonderful opportunity for the whole country to get involved and unify over our love of sport.”
Jo Blundell, Sales & Marketing Director at Grosvenor Casinos, Scotland commented: “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of what we believe to be the world’s smallest travelling casino and reward our loyal customer base with some complimentary rides, as well as welcome some new faces. If you see the Grosvenor Casinos taxi in your town, please hail it down or you can tweet your journey request – it is truly a unique experience.”
