Royal Windsor Racecourse is thrilled to announce that Britain’s premier casino and sportsbook operator GentingBet has signed a deal to be the title sponsor for the ever-popular Gentlemen’s Day on Saturday, 29 June, 2019.
The Genting Bet Gentlemen’s Day Ft. Ministry of Sound with Basement Jaxx is one of the highlights of the summer season at Windsor, along with the famous Best Dressed Gent Competition, which will again offer some incredible prizes to be won.
A top-class card will feature the Listed GentingBet Midsummer Stakes, won last year by the Amanda Perrett-trained Zhui Feng, whose previous success came in the 2017 Royal Hunt Cup. This will be the 16th running of this mile contest for horses aged three years and upwards.
GentingBet is one of the Great Britain’s largest casino operators, with over 50 years of gaming experience, offering the very best in premium casino gaming, live casino and sports betting via its mobile, apps and website products.
Dan Michelson, Marketing Director of Genting Bet, said: “We are delighted to partner with Royal Windsor Racecourse to be the title sponsor of GentingBet Gentlemen’s Day, which is always a highlight in the calendar.
“Windsor is synonymous with excellence and a variety of top-class racing. The course executive always strives to offer an enjoyable, fun experience for its customers, which dovetails well with the GentingBet ethos.
“The incredible variety within the GentingBet suite of casino games, its diverse array of casinos within the estate itself and the extensive sportsbook offering, places GentingBet at the head of the gaming entertainment field.
“We are looking forward to some fantastic on-course action on June 29, along with what promises to be some incredible after-race music from the Ministry Of Sound, who have an incredible line-up, featuring Tim Cullen, Full Intention and a headline DJ set from Basement Jaxx.”
The Genting Group launched its first online casino in 2008, while the GentingBet sports book was launched in 2013. Both verticals have grown consistently over recent years supported by Genting’s considerable casino retail estate.
GentingBet is an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Genting Malaysia Berhad. Genting operates 41 land-based casino premises in the UK across England and Scotland and also operates a casino in Egypt – Crockfords Cairo – through a subsidiary.
In London, GentingBet runs the Crockfords casino which has its origins in the private members gaming club established in 1828 by William Crockford.
