Sun City unveils Party Power 2 grand prize

Sun City has unveiled the grand prize in its 40th birthday promotion, Party Power 2. At the final draw on 7 December 2019, coinciding with its official birthday, Sun City will give away a 2019 White Ford Mustang 5.0 V8 A/T Coupe valued at over R900 000. The luxurious car, which has been kept secret since the launch of Party Power in July, was revealed to invited guests and members of the media at The Crater at Sun City over the weekend.

The big reveal included a showcase of vintage Ford Mustangs, including a 1964 Mustang, 1969 and 1973 Mach 1 Mustangs and a 2009 California Special. Representatives from Ford regaled interesting facts about the iconic Mustangs.

In the countdown to its official 40th birthday celebration in December 2019, Sun City will have given away over R6.5-million worth of cash, cars and prizes in its Party Power and Party Power 2 promotions. There are weekly chances to win a share of R75 000 in cash every Saturday. Two of the five Fords up for grabs in Party Power have already been won. At the next car draw on 26 October, one lucky guest will win a Ford Eco Sport while another guest will get to drive away in a rugged Ford Ranger on 30 November.

Party Power 2 is exclusive to Sun MVG members. All members of Sun International’s Sun MVG Programme can be part of the promotion by playing their favourite slots and table games to earn points for draw tickets. Points earning criteria differ per membership tier.  To be in the running for the Ford Mustang in the final draw, guests must earn 500 casino points between 1 October and 12h00 on 7 December to qualify for one entry. Thereafter, guests will earn an additional entry for every 200 casino points earned.

Registration to the Sun MVG Programme is free of charge at the Sun MVG Desks at all Sun International casinos in South Africa or online. Sun International recently reinvented its well recognised Most Valued Guest (MVG) loyalty programme to deliver more rewards, exciting benefits and exclusive offers to guests visiting its casinos and hotels in South Africa.

A key enhancement of the new Sun MVG Programme is the opportunity it provides to customers to earn both casino and leisure points when playing slots, table games, staying in hotel rooms and dining at selected restaurants and outlets at Sun International properties. Casino Points can be used for playback on the slot machines and table games and Leisure Points for hotel accommodation, dining experiences or exciting entertainment.

Party Power and Party Power 2 are part of a super charged line-up of events, entertainment and promotions to celebrate the past four decades of memorable moments. Turning 40 is a most auspicious milestone for Sun City which has endeared itself as South Africa’s most iconic leisure and party destination to millions of visitors for four decades. It was a hot December day when Sun City was officially opened by hotel magnate Sol Kerzner. Emerging from the dry African bush in what was then known as Bophuthatswana, the resort instantly captured the hearts and imaginations of entertainment-hungry South Africans. For the first time, they could explore concerts by international bands and artists, and the thrill of glamour gambling.

Over time, Sun City has evolved into one of the most exciting and all-encompassing entertainment and leisure destinations in the country. Today, visitors have a choice of over 30 restaurants, lounges and bars (ranging from fine dining restaurants to casual and family-friendly eateries); state of the art conferencing facilities and a suite of spectacular activities that have broad appeal.
