On Thursdays in June, Mardi Gras Casino (831 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, 954-924-3200, MardiGrasCasinoFL.com) has a “Solar Flares” promotion every two hours from noon to midnight. Casinogoers who play their Krewe Card at slot machines get a chance at “Red Hot Rewards.” Mardi Gras’ new senior marketing manager, Ashley Foster, who previously was a manager in the casino, says, “We simplified the promotion so that our guests know exactly what they need to do to receive a reward.” Specifically, if guests earn 100 points, they receive $10 in bonus play. And 300 points equals $30, 625 equals $60, and 1,000 equals $100 in bonus play. Guests can win only once per day. Also at Mardi Gras, in its Big Easy Poker Room, $500 minimum high hands are awarded every half-hour from noon to 10 p.m. five days a week (and from noon to midnight Fridays and Saturdays). On Saturday in the poker room at Isle Casino Racing (777 Isle of Capri Circle, Pompano Beach, 954-972-2000, TheIslePompanoPark.com), there will be $500 high hands every half-hour from noon to 10 p.m. On Sunday, $100 high hands will be offered from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., and $300 from 2 to 7 p.m. From 4 to 10 p.m. Monday, June 20, Gulfstream Park
(901 S. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, 954-454-7000, GulfstreamPark.com) will have a “Quick Hit Slot Tournament” in which visitors can win their share of $40,000 in cash and free play, with the first-place winner taking home $3,500 in cash. To enter, you need 10 points, which you can earn by playing on slot machines and having points kept on your player’s card, which is free to get. The 30 players with the most points win prizes. On Sunday, June 19, from noon to 8 p.m., Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood, 800-937-0010, SeminoleHardRockHollywood.com) will again offer “Hard Rockin’ Sevens.” Every seven minutes, a player will win $777 in free play.
