Car giveaways this weekend at local casinos


July is coming to an end, which means casinos are completing their monthly car-giveaway promotions.

Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek, 954-977-6700, will give away a 1957 T-Bird on Sunday night, and, as is the casino’s custom, there’s some buildup involved. Every hour from 6 to 9 p.m., six players will be selected to pick an envelope. Five of the envelopes will contain free-play vouchers, and one envelope will contain a “finalist” invitation to play the final round of the evening. After the 9 p.m. drawing, the advancing finalists from each round will receive a lock and a key. The player whose key unlocks their lock will win the car, and the other three finalists will receive $1,000 in cash. Monday is the casino’s $10K Birthday Giveaway for July. Every hour from 5 to 9 p.m., a date will be drawn. Those people celebrating a birthday on that date in July will split $2,000 cash.

The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood, 866-502-7529, will give away a 2013 BMW 335IS at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Players are encouraged to swipe their cards daily for a free entry.

Seminole Classic Casino (4150 N. State Road 7, 954-961-3220, will give away a 2013 Lincoln MKZ at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

At 10 p.m., one player will win the 2013 Lincoln MKZ and the other finalists will receive $400 in free play.
