Casino Sunborn Grand Opening in Gibraltar

Peppermint Marketing and Design had the pleasure of organising the launch party for Gibraltar’s latest entertainment attraction – Casino Sunborn on board the five star super yacht hotel, Sunborn Gibraltar, in the Ocean Village marina. 

Peppermint didn’t just orchestrate the Grand Opening, it is also providing Casino Sunborn with full service marketing support ranging from social media campaigns, outdoor print advertising and public relations. Peppermint even created the casino’s hashtag–#wherepassionmeetsplay—which you’ll see on all Casino Sunborn advertising and social media. It’s a great addition to Peppermint’s portfolio of work.
Many Marbella and Gibraltar press, radio and TV representatives attended the evening and enjoyed a press tour with Hans Niemi, Executive Director of Sunborn and Jade Thompson of Peppermint. We released the following press release post-party and we’re pleased to say that it has got the press’s attention. That’s the result we want for all our clients!

Casino Sunborn Press Release

The Grand Opening of Casino Sunborn, was held on Saturday 16th May aboard the five star super yacht hotel, Sunborn Gibraltar, in Ocean Village proved to be a massive success and a night to remember for both guests and hosts.

Guests were greeted with a glass of champagne and the opportunity to pose for a photo with the glamorous showgirls taken by Marbella’s very own top photographer, Johnny Gates, who snapped all the arrivals in true Oscars style on the red carpet. Sunborn Executive Director Hans Niemi along with Jukka Nikula from Paf received guests at the top of the gangway and warmly welcomed them to the evening’s special event. VIP guests included Gibraltar’s lovely Miss World, plus footballers David Bentley and Stephen Carr. Gunilla Nordlund (wife of Åland Finance Minister) also had the pleasure in welcoming and registering the first guest as a member of the casino.

Guests gathered in Sunborn’s Aurora ballroom to listen to some traditional Spanish guitar music whilst enjoying free flowing drinks and a sensational buffet provided by the Sunborn’s five star chefs. Dinner was followed by brief speeches by Casino Manager Dominick Stenson, Sunborn Executive Director Hans Niemi and Åland Finance Minister, Roger Nordlund.

The Marbella Big Band and its Rat Pack show then took to the stage and gave a performance worthy of Vegas itself! The grand finale of “New York, New York” complete with showgirls, received a standing ovation from a delighted audience. A live DJ, saxophonist, violinist and card magician also performed throughout the evening and a laser show beamed out across the bay for all Gibraltar to see.

Later in the evening, the casino became the focus of everyone’s attention, with hubs of activity around the tables and slot machines. Dominick Stenson (Casino Manager) Ian Radford (La Sala) and David Bentley (Footballer) took the first spin on the roulette table to start the evenings play. The excitement and tension was palpable and even those guests who weren’t playing gathered round the tables to see how Lady Luck would treat those who were putting their chips down.

It was a great start to Casino Sunborn’s commitment to being a major Gibraltar entertainment attraction and further confirms the Sunborn super yacht hotel’s reputation as a leading Gibraltar destination. It seems Lady Luck is favouring Gibraltar: it’s time to visit Casino Sunborn and get to know her better.
