Bunny Girls are Back

 

London Clubs International Limited (LCI), today announced plans to bring the Playboy Bunnies back to Manchester. On October 1, the iconic Playboy bunnies will once again make an appearance in the city after a 30 year hiatus and take a one off residence inside LCI’s Manchester235 casino.

‘The original Manchester Playboy Club opened in 1972 and closed a decade later when Playboy Enterprises moved away from casinos. However, following the recent and hugely successful return of the brand to London’s Mayfair in June there is little doubt that Playboy is well and truly back, and this visit to Manchester could be a hint of more to come.

‘The event will take place at Manchester235 casino on Saturday 1 October 2011 and is open to members of the public as well as a host of VIPs.

'Guests will see the famous croupier bunnies running the blackjack and roulette tables in the gaming pit as well as valet bunnies serving drinks. Legendary Bunnies combined with live singing from Manchester duo Taylor & Leigh, headliner Jim Whitely and his 5 piece band followed by a DJ into the early hours.

‘The event reflects the Playboy brand; good food and drink, pretty girls, and exciting entertainment. The most attractive feature of the return of the Playboy Club brand to the UK which was marked with the launch of Playboy Club London in June is undoubtedly the return of the Playboy Bunnies to Europe.

‘“Following our successful launch of Playboy Club London in June this year, the bunnies are returning to Manchester for a one off event in October,” says a company spokesman. “We will be testing the water to see how the bunnies are received in Manchester, and if our customers, VIPs and celebrities respond positively to the idea.”

Ipsotek What is it

The Ipsotek technology allows Gaming Floor Live™ to collect activity and event information from gaming tables either using table mounted cameras or the casino’s existing CCTV system. The information is then turned into data that can be used to trigger performance-related alarms as well as being stored in a central database, where it is used to analyze occupancy rates, turnover, player behavior and staff productivity. Gaming Floor Live feeds information directly back to floor staff allowing casinos to make real time decisions on game speed, game pricing, tables occupancy and hence improve productivity and the casino average win percentage
