A top UK online casino is pressing REWIND to give one lucky punter the thrill of his life!

Smart Live Casino — broadcasting on Sky Channel 869 and Freeview 22 — sounded the fanfare at primetime viewing last night to announce the winner of its VIP Summer Knights Joust promotion.

But when the casino phoned “colin752” to finalize the details of his prize — a SEVEN-NIGHT luxury holiday at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas with $1,000 stake money — they discovered he hadn’t been able to tune in.

Common Theme

Smart TV promotions chief Rob O’Connor told Casino Update: “He was delighted to learn that he’d won, and devastated to have missed his moment of fame!

“So we’ve decided to rerun the announcement tonight, just perhaps with not so much of a build-up!”

That may be difficult as the re-run will be handled by Smart TV presenter Jem Patel, well known for his showmanship in “set pieces”. Jem will be partnered by croupier Lisa, one of colin752’s personal favourites.

High Rollers

Rob added: “This whole promotion was a step back in time for us with the theme being knights on horseback jousting for a title, so slipping back just 24-hours for our VIP winner is the least we can do.”

The Summer Knights Joust was timed to promote Smart Live Casino’s new High Roller roulette wheel on Sky 870, with a bet limit of £3,000, and was based on highest punter turnover over seven days on any or all of the casino’s roulette wheels.
