Mardi Gras gives away turkeys, hams

The fourth Thursday in November is Thanksgiving, but the first three Thursdays is a time to be a hunter-gatherer at Mardi Gras Casino.

The Hallandale Beach casino is giving away turkeys and hams. Slot players who earn at least 60 points between 11 a.m. and midnight receive a gift certificate for either a turkey or a ham. But there's a limit of one per day, because the idea of having bountiful food is to be able to share it.

Meanwhile, on Tuesdays is a Fat Tuesday Slot Tournament. Every 15 minutes from 3 p.m.- 8 p.m. Earn 50 points for a chance to be in the Halloween Fat Tuesday Slot Tournaments. The top winner from all rounds will win $2,500 cash. 19 Finalists will win a share of over $3,000.

 There's a Black Friday/Saturday Car Giveaway with a midnight drawing. Earn 50 points for a chance to win a 2013 Kia Soul. Must validate entries on day of promotion. One day only.
