4 casinos, 4 cars this weekend

Four casinos are wrapping up June by giving away cars, and they’re spaced out enough over the weekend that you can make up to three of them:

Seminole Classic Casino (4150 N. State Road 7, 954-961-3220, SeminoleHollywoodCasino.com) will give away a Ford Escape at 6 p.m. Saturday. Slot players can receive one additional entry for every 40 points earned. Table-games players may earn one entry for every $200 wagered. From noon to 5:30 p.m., four players will be chosen every 30 minutes with one qualifying for the grand-prize Ford Escape at 6 p.m. All others will win $100 in free play. At 6 p.m., one player will win the car, and the other finalists will get $400 in free play.

In the most-complicated giveaway that mimics a race, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek, 954-977-6700, SeminoleCasinoCoconutCreek.com) will award an Infiniti G37 Convertible at 10 p.m. Saturday. Ten names will be drawn every hour from 7 to 9 p.m. Each finalist will pick a random hat from a bag. The six hats that aren’t black will be assigned a cube, and then the cubes will be rolled to advance one person to the finish line.  Depending on what color of the cube lands face up will decide which color car will move forward on the game board. The cubes will be thrown until one car makes it past the finish line. The two players’ cars that are in the lead will be awarded the finalist position. All other racers will be paid out based on their order of finish. At 10 p.m., the six finalists will return for a final race. During this race, the winner will be awarded the car.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood, 866-502-7529, SeminoleHardRockHollywood.com) waits until Sunday for its Mercedes SLK 350 giveaway. Slot players will earn one entry for each 200 points and table games players receive an entry for every $800 wagered.

Isle Casino and Racing (1800 SW Third St., Pompano Beach, 954-972-2000, TheIslePompanoPark.com) car is a Volvo C-70, at 6 p.m. Sunday. Other prizes are $250 in free play, given away hourly from 1 to 5 p.m. Casino Miami Jai-Alai (3500 NW 37th Ave., Miami, 305-633-6400, CasinoMiamiJaiAlai.com) has a $250,000 Summer Cash Drawing from 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday. At every hour, three names will be drawn to choose an envelope. Two players will get a consolation prize of $200 in free play, and one will have a chance to choose three money bags. If all three have a “$” on the bottom, the patron will get $250,000 in cash. If not, the prize is $500 in free play. It’s also the finals of a karaoke contest the casino has been running. Performances are from 9 p.m. to midnight.
