It was officially confirmed last week that Casino Estoril will host ‘An Evening at Casino Estoril’ on Friday 24th June, a party night where competitors, guests and sponsors will enjoy live music while awards for the World Final Licensee and Guest Competitions will be presented by WCGC Ambassadors including Luis Figo.
Casino Estoril, the largest casino in Europe, is located in Estoril, a village located 11 miles southwest of Lisbon, Portugal. During World War II it was reputed to be a gathering spot for espionage agents, dispossessed royals, and wartime adventurers. As a result it was the inspiration for Ian Fleming’s 007 novel Casino Royale.
Nuno Sardinha from Casino Estoril said, “We are delighted to host ‘An Evening at Casino Estoril’. We are honoured to welcome WCGC competitors and all of the guests to Europe’s largest casino, where they will enjoy an extremely special evening.”
Jose Guerra, WCGC Chairman commented, “We are extremely grateful for the support of Casino Estoril at this year’s World Final. The casino is iconic for very different reasons, but the setting for this event and our competitors, guests and sponsors are a great match. It will undoubtedly be a night to remember for all of us.”
