Seminole Casino Coconut Creek in South Florida has earned a reputation for its creative “outside the box” promotions including a free trip to outer space. That tradition continued April 14-19 when it hosted a record-setting $5 million traveling cash display, the largest amount of money ever publicly showcased in a casino. During the six-day promotion, Seminole Player’s Club members will have a chance to win $1 million simply by swiping their Wild Card at a designated kiosk at the casino.
Plus, to kick off the debut of the $5 million displayed on April 14 at 11 a.m., General Manager Steve Bonner tossed handfuls of “leftover” money from the display into a money blowing booth for select guests to grab.
The first-of-its-kind exhibit, which consisted of $100 bills encased in a 1,300-pound, custom-made $90,000 bullet-resistant Lexan showcase, is expected to be announced soon as a Guinness World Record.
“We’re confident this amazing display of $5 million in cash smashes the record books! We know you’ve never seen anything like this before, and you may never see this much money again,” Bonner said.
The display was manufactured in Las Vegas especially for the record-setting event; it is traveling nearly 1,000 miles within the state over the course of about 40 days, allowing as many visitors as possible to experience the once-in-a-lifetime sight of $5 million in cash.
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is also putting its unique signature on the display’s debut on April 14 with a money giveaway promotion at 1, 2, 3, and 4 p.m. A computer will randomly select lucky slot players who’ll climb into a money blowing booth and walk away with as many $100 bills as they can catch.
