Play and party: are you ready for the online casino festival?
Online casinos and poker rooms are always looking for ways to appeal to new players and timid gamblers. The Glastonbury Festival has previously hosted a live casino and poker site. PKR sponsored major musical events.
This week we’re matching the best festivals in Europe and the UK with the online casino game that’s right for them. It’s a dirty job but – we put on the rubber boots, set up the tent, head for the beer tent – and we do it.
1. Hot Chip in Glastonbury – Blackjack
Hot Chip electronic popsters are on display at UK’s biggest festival in beautiful Somerset. Glastonbury is the one everyone loves, which is why the world’s favorite online casino game is the perfect choice.
If your chips are hot when you flex your muscles at the game and play a few hands of Blackjack, you’ll be going from tent to yurt in no time.
2. Clean Bandit at the V Festival – Slot machines
Classically trained pop group Clean Bandit performs at several festivals this year, including the V Festival in late August. With a name so close to ‘one armed bandit’ we have chosen online slots as the perfect game to enjoy the Staffordshire or Chelmsford V festivals this year.
Headlines like Kasabian and Calvin Harris are the perfect excuse to grab your cell phone and see if you can recoup the cost of admission.
3. La Roux at Latitude – Roulette
La Roux, an androgynous 1980s sound, travels to Suffolk in July for the middle-class Barbour Latitude festival. We expect festival-goers to enjoy a little Roux-lette as they “tut-tut” to people pushing their way past the crowd.
Other Latitude highlights this year include Miserable Portishead, Half Oasis, and the Welsh Evergreens Festival, the Manic Street Preachers.
4. The Black Keys on the Isle of Wight – Craps
American duo The Black Keys will be rock and… roll… when they perform at the Isle of Wight Festival in June. Clearly the perfect group to play and play craps with online.
Other headliners at this classic rock festival are Fleetwood Mac, Blur and The Prodigy.
5. Kenny Rogers on the Country Music Cruise, Jamaica – Casino
Kenny Rogers played Glastonbury two years ago and wowed the crowd with his rendition of the greatest casino song of all time: The Gambler. We checked out Kenny’s itinerary for the coming year and he is giving the festival scene a boost.
However, if you want to enjoy Kenny a bit, he is at several state fairs in the United States this year. He begins 2016 on a cruise ship in the Caribbean, where it is likely that he will sing The Gambler. Now that’s a goal to aim for. Meet on board.
