Winning cash for kicks

Two casinos are offering nice payouts for people adept at predicting World Cup winners.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino officials say they will award more than $300,000 in cash and free play through a variety of options too complex to list here. The topper is that each week, the player who makes the most correct picks will win up to $15,000 cash. Prizes for most correct picks for the entire World Cup will be awarded on July 13, and it's $30,000 for first place, $15,000 for second and $5,000 for third.

Daily drawings at 8:30 p.m. award $1,000 in free slot play to five patrons. Figure it all out at RockTheGoal2014.com.

The casino will host a party on July 13 for the World Cup final. As was the case during the June 12 opening game, two models will wear body paint in the colors of the competing teams near the main lobby.

Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, meanwhile, says its World Cup giveaways total $200,000. Every weekly winner gets $5,000, and $20,000 will go to the person who makes the most correct picks. Additionally, 100 random participants will win up to $100 daily. But that free play is only good for 72 hours after the drawing, so patrons must log in using their player's club cards at SemionoleCasinoCoconutCreek.com.

A $35,000 grand finale drawing will be held on July 13.
