12/20/11 : ATLANTIC CITY GAMBLER MAKES A MILLION ON A $20 BET
Unnamed woman hits the "Three Card Poker 6 Card" bonus jackpot at Harrah's Resort.
Sunday was a winning day in Atlantic City for a woman gambler who has chosen to remain anonymous; on a poker bet of $20 she took home the one million dollar "Three Card Poker 6 Card" bonus jackpot while playing at Harrah's Resort.
The promotion offers gamblers various cash prizes if they draw a royal flush. The payouts they receive depend on the amount they bet and whether their royal flush occurs in diamonds, hearts, spades or clubs.
Casino officials told the Associated Press news agency that the woman had been playing at the table for about two hours when she caught a royal flush in diamonds – the promo's top pay out – and only the second time it has been won since the promotion began September 26.
