What’s the second-tallest statue in the country, after the Statue of Liberty? It’s a 110ft tall diorama of Pegasus fighting a dragon at Gulfstream Park. While this isn’t the only attraction at this mixed entertainment venue, it’s certainly the most ostentatious. Gulfstream Park is another racino, with a one-mile-long racetrack in addition to a well-stocked casino, which is due to the popularity of pari-mutuel betting in Florida. Its regular promotions, which include chances to win a car or a large monetary sum, are something quite unique in FL.
The racetrack is the highlight of this facility, but it does offer a casino and plenty of dining options as well. The track was founded in 1994, and now holds daily thoroughbred races. A $100 sign up bonus awaits anyone willing to bet at the racetrack for the first time. The gaming room has socially distanced slots and electronic table games. Looking to get really lucky? Well then the Fantastic Lotto Series will appeal to you. Every Friday the event is hosted from 11 AM-Midnight, with the opportunity to win up to $5,000 each hour.
As far as games are concerned, The Casino at Gulfstream Park has some machines that use much more screen real estate than the standard fare, including Fantastic Dragons, a double 3×5 slot (or 3×5 x 3×5) that has 100 lines in play. Bingo makes an appearance too, albeit in virtual form. Unfortunately, The Casino at Gulfstream doesn’t seem to offer much in the way of table games compared to other casinos in Miami, preferring to focus on its racing, shopping, and dining ventures, instead.
Located 7 miles south of Ft Lauderdale Airport, Gulfstream Park Casino is a great location for out of state visitors looking to visit the internationally known racetrack. The 4 story clubhouse has tons of dining options and will fill just about any taste craving. When you finish with gambling, PlugIN Karaoke is nearby in Gulfstream Park’s village. If coming with a big group, you’ll have the option to book a private room, creating a warm, secluding experience.
