The Ferrari legacy officially began in 1947 with the creation of the 125 S and has since become one of the most famous and loved car manufacturers in the world. Famed for their beauty, speed, and bright red colouration, Ferraris have been the envy of car owners all over the world for decades. Even now, over 70 years since the first official Ferrari model hit the road, people swoon not just over the latest cars, but also the classics and quirkier creations to don the prancing horse logo.
Few car brands demand the attention of Ferrari, and so an event wholly centric on the manufacturer's finest creations is very much warranted. Emperors Palace in Kempton Park is set to host such an event, with Ferrari Day being one of the most anticipated events on the casino’s calendar. It’s the perfect South African venue to showcase Ferrari’s because it exudes class, fun, and excitement.
The Palace of Dreams
Regardless of Ferrari Day, Emperors Palace is already a major attraction in the area due to its classy and game-filled casino floors. With over 1,710 slot machines and 69 table games, Emperors Palace has done well to expand the variety of games as well as introduce new games regularly to keep up with the competition. Land-based casinos have had to continue to update their games and diversify because the main competition consists of the online casino offerings available in South Africa, where many different variants like Lightning Roulette, Aztec Temple Treasures, Multi-Hand Blackjack, and Game of Gladiators keep websites fresh and engaging.
Emperors Palace has done so most recently by bringing in Blackjack Elevens to its casino floor, as well as the roulette game Double Spin. Within the gaming venue, there are many semi-private areas away from the main casino floor, including the glass-enclosed Velarium Casino for smokers, the luxurious Emperors Club Casino, and the more traditional-feeling Victorium Casino area. Hailed as the most exclusive gaming experience in Africa, gamers can also enter into the high-stakes realm of the Exclusive Privé areas if they so choose.
One of South Africa’s finest entertainment buildings, Emperors Palace extends its offering beyond that of a regular casino floor. There is a huge range of events taking place throughout the year, 12 restaurants to choose from, and four fast-food joints, even including Nandos. For a more relaxing experience, guests simply have to venture over to Octavia’s Day Spa in the Peermont D’oreale Grande Hotel or check out Marc Anthony’s Cigar Lounge. There’s a lot on offer at Emperors Palace, which is why it ranks as the top thing to do in Kempton Park with overwhelmingly positive reviews pouring in online.
Here comes Ferrari Day!
For anyone who loves cars, a classy atmosphere, or just wants to experience something exciting, Ferrari Day is not to be missed. Taking place on 13 October at the Emperors Palace, the venue is set to be swarming with the classic colouring of Ferrari, otherwise known as racing red or 'Rosso Corsa'. Anyone who wants to see the finest cars that Ferrari has to offer is welcome to venture down to the casino as it is completely free to the public. Gates open at 9:00 am with Park & View being available as well as nine categories of Show & Shine.
Much of the event surrounds the judging, which will take place from 9:30 am to 11:00 am at the fountain of Emperors Palace. The fountain will provide a stunning backdrop to this illustrious assembly of pristine cars, which will make for some excellent photos for anyone who attends. Everyone who comes will be hoping to see the prancing horse logo on their favourite model and the roar of the sublime Ferrari engines. Of the best Ferrari models of all-time, people are bound to show up to see the Ferrari F40, Ferrari 250 GTO, Ferrari F50, Ferrari Dino 246, and, of course, the car that started it all, the Ferrari 125 S.
It’s not long now until Emperors Palace hosts its very own Ferrari Day. People are sure to swarm to Kempton Park on 13 October to see the stunning collection of Ferraris on show, and many will likely spend the rest of the day enjoying the venue’s many entertainment options, from the casino floor to their incredible selection of top-class restaurants.
