Seminole Hollywood Classic: Car in the air for 'Mobster's Month'


On April 30, as a grand finale to Mobsters’ Month at Seminole Casino Hollywood, someone could win $25,000 after an armored car drops to the pavement from its present position dangling from a crane in the casino parking lot.

Marketing director Rob Dearstine told Tribe publicists how the promotion will work: Every 30 minutes from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. on April 30, four winners will be drawn to select an envelope. All winners will receive up to $500 in casino free play and a chance at the Grand Prize Great Armored Car Crash Up drawing.

At the conclusion of the 10 p.m. drawing, nine players will get a chance to win up to $25,000 when they are escorted outside to watch the armored truck crash to the ground with cash and free play spilling out. Then, at 11 p.m., 20 additional winners will receive $200 free play in a "Share the Wealth" bonus drawing.

“We always give our players a unique experience and strive to make all of our promotions memorable, fun, and interactive,” said Dearstine

Other ongoing promotions this month include Sunday Steal Deal drawings, Monday Gangster Wheel Double Spin, Tuesdays Crack The Code - Bank Grab drawings, Wednesdays Bonnie and Clyde Slot Tournaments, Thursdays Cousin Vinny's TV Giveaway, and Saturdays $100,000 Ponzi Payout.

"Seems the only thing they’re missing is an appearance by Bernie Madoff!" the press release says

About the author
Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
