Like Video King, Happy Valley Casino in the Kingdom of eSwatini strives to give their guests the royal treatment.
Happy Valley ‘Royal’ Retreat
Casino Transports Console To Africa
The Kingdom of eSwatini, also known as Swaziland, officially welcomes their guests, as their slogan suggests, with “A Royal Experience.” It is one of the few remaining African monarchies – endowed with a rich, cultural heritage all their own.
So it seemed only fitting this nation’s Happy Valley Casino requested a bingo console from Video King, which also strives to give our customers the royal treatment – in terms of craftsmanship and service.
How did this casino, located many continents, oceans and seas away, near
the southern tip of Africa happen to hear about Video King,
headquartered in the central U.S. So happens, the director of Happy
Valley Casino, known as “The Vegas of Swaziland,” travelled to the neon lights of Vegas.
Once upon a time in a land far, far away there was a
company that rented our electronic bingo, card-minding devices. These
devices helped bingo players to manage more bingo cards than they
otherwise could physically play.
Over the years the company developed many models of this device,
smaller, faster, more bells and whistles and continued to deploy units
throughout the United States, Canada, the military – anywhere where
bingo was played.
As the years went by, bingo players looked for other forms of entertainment and turned to casino gaming, mainly slot machines.
Vanguard Music and Performing Arts, funded by Vanguard Bingo, is regarded as one of the best in the nation.
Video King Plays Major Role Bingo Funds Fuel Vanguard World Champs
In an industrial area, one bingo hall, outfitted with Video King gaming equipment, is making big noise. On at least one note. The nonprofit it funds, Vanguard Music and Performing Arts, is regarded as one of the top performing youth arts organizations in the nation.
Just how good are they?
Drum Roll Please ...
The Santa Clara Vanguard, the program’s flagship, has won seven Drum Corps International World Class Championships, the most recent in 2018.
While the Vanguard Cadets have claimed six DCI Championships in the Open Class Division. That takes a lot of practice, skill, determination, as well as ball calls, backed by a synchronized formation of dedicated staff, parents, friends and other family members, who act as volunteers.
there’s a will there’s a way. That could also apply to Will Martin, a
veteran, who now fights through advocacy to protect and preserve
charities, who depend on bingo funding in the state of Texas.
Veteran Fights For Charities
Advocacy His Strongest Defense
A soldier to the core. That’s how one could describe Will Martin.
And he’s mad. Fighting mad. A decorated veteran, since retired, he’s
tempered his anger. All he wants to do now is level the playing field,
make it a fair fight, not in a war zone, but the gambling landscape,
which rakes in billions of dollars for the state of Texas.
His cause, charitable bingo. His M.O. lobbying efforts – aimed to
protect and preserve charities, which in turn, enrich the lives of
countless others. Martin serves as co-executive director of Conservative Texans For Charitable Bingo,
a nonprofit group of Texas charities and supporters forged to help fund
local charities through the game of bingo, as regulated by the state.
“More than 900 charities across Texas raise money for children,
veterans, education, fine arts, special needs citizens and more,”
according to Angela Hale, who also serves as co-executive
director. “Total charitable proceeds for the people of Texas now exceed
more than $1 billion dollars,” she said.
