Monday is a day off for some people, and the three Seminole casinos are urging gamblers to get an early start. Two of those spots are also offering an evening flourish.
It will start at 7 a.m. with “Free Play Frenzy.” Each casino is giving away $1,000 in free play every three minutes. The promotion will run until 2 p.m. at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, Seminole Classic Casino and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood, 866-502-7529, SeminoleHardRockHollywood.com).
Then, at 6 p.m., Coconut Creek (5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek, 954-977-6700, SeminoleCasinoCoconutCreek.com) will embark on a Presidential Lincoln Getaway. (See, it’s President’s Day, and Lincoln is on the $5 bill, and …) Randomly selected gamblers will have the chance to sit on the presidential scale and be weighed. (Scales of justice?) They will then select an envelope containing the image of Washington, Lincoln or Jackson. They will receive their weight times $1 cash (Washington), $5 free play (Lincoln) or $20 split cash and free play (Jackson).
Meanwhile, Seminole Classic Casino (4150 N. State Road 7, 954-961-3220, Seminolehollywoodcasino.com) is featuring the “All About the Benjamins” promotion. Every 15 minutes from 4 to 7 p.m., the casino will select five $250 winners. The prize will increase to $500 at 6:30, $1,000 at 6:45 and $2,000 at 7 p.m. Players can earn entries between now and the time of the drawing.
