To borrow from Diddy: It’s all about the Benjamins, baby.
And the Grants. Even the Lincolns and the Washingtons.
The Isle Casino & Racing in Pompano Beach is kicking off a promotion tied to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and Benjamin Franklin — the faces on the $1, $5, $50 and $100 bills — with special events and reduced restaurant prices.
“People are looking for value and that’s what we’re trying to hit,” said Joshua LeDuff, the casino’s senior director of marketing.
The casino’s new food deals include:
$4.99 breakfast buffet: 8 to 11 a.m. with Player’s Club Card (currently on weekends; daily offer starts May 3)
$9.99 lunch buffet: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday
$14.99 dinner buffet: 4:30 to 9 p.m. Sunday to Thursday
$19.99 seafood dinner: 4:30 to 10 p.m. Friday to Saturday
The casino draws heavily from local residents, rather than tourists, so the hope is these new prices will motivate them to visit the Isle more often, LeDuff said.
Meanwhile, the casino will have the $50K Grant’s Slot Tournament from 2 to 7 p.m. Thursdays in April. Each Thursday, 100 winners receive $100 in free play, making for the $50,000 total.
The casino also has a pose-as-the-presidents station near the buffet, where patrons can take photos with their faces inserted in life-sized cardboard cutouts of Lincoln and Washington.
