You could win a (very) nice car at Isle on Saturday


Car giveaways are common at South Florida casinos, but not ones that are worth six figures. The Isle Casino in Pompano Beach gives away an Alfa Romeo 4c at 11 p.m. Saturday. That’s a handmade Italian luxury sports car, worth $150,000. Slot players have been earning entries into the drawing all month and everyone who swipes their player’s club car received a free entry each day they visited the casino.

Latin band Timbalive plays at 11 p.m. Saturday at Casino Miami. The casino also will have a Leap Day Scratch Off from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  on Monday. Guests can win up to $300 in free play.

 Calder Casino offers a free contest for those who like to predict NBA games. Each Sunday through 5 p.m. Wednesday, casino patrons can predict the winners of selected games for free. The top 20 scores each week win a share of over $1,000 free slot play. The top 100 scores for the season get a piece of $7,500 in slot play.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday are the last three days to enter the climactic event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino “Escalator” series.  February started with a $100,000 guarantee event at the poker room, now this weekend it’s up to a $400,000 guarantee. Players can enter at 11 a.m. or 6 p.m., with survivors vying for the title on Sunday. The final two players also receive a free entry into the $3,500 buy-in WPT Showdown championship in April. The card room also has a Mega Satellite tournament at 6 p.m. Sunday, with 10 seats into the Showdown guaranteed. Buy-in is $385.
