South Florida Casino Offering Space Trip As Grand Prize
People go to casinos for a variety of reasons. Some people go just to get away from everyday life for a few hours. Other go with the intention of hitting a jackpot and becoming rich.
At the Seminole Coconuts Creek Casino in South Florida, gamblers might soon be going to the casino for a different reason. They will have a shot at winning a trip to outer space.
The idea, itself, sounds like something someone from another planet might come up with. It is, however, a real idea and a real grand prize at the Coconut Creek casino.
Space flights could be available as early as 2009. When they do, the casino will be ready to give away the $200,000 trip as part of their "Million Dollar Giveaway". People are already getting excited about the chance to win a trip to space.
"I would rather win the space trip than a regular jackpot for $200,000. The money will come and go, but the space trip memories will be something nobody can take away from you. I think it's a great idea," said John Lindstron, a slot machine gambler who is frequently at the casino in Coconut Creek.
The casino has hired an outside travel agency to book the flight. they also have a backup plan if the winner does not want the trip. they will be offering $110,000 in cash instead of the trip to the winner.
