Winning Is in the Bag

When’s the last time you got a chance to compete for an easy $1,000? And by “compete,” we mean sit on your rump, have a couple of drinks, and play slots. This Friday, for your gambling pleasure, Gulfstream Park (901 S. Federal Hwy., Hallandale) is holding a Free-For-All slot tournament in their Finish Line Casino from noon to 4 p.m. The cost is, um, free, and prizes totaling $5,000 will be awarded, with the grand prize winner taking home a cool grand in cash. Contestants must be enrolled in the (also free) Good Luck Player’s Club, a program that entitles members to daily casino specials and contests. Not yet a member? Just show up about twenty minutes early, IDs in hand. Play your cards — er, slots — right, and you could also win a genuine Louis Vuitton bag to carry home all those winnings. Visit, or call 954-454-7000.
Fridays. Starts: Sept. 26. Continues through Oct. 31, 2008
