A lucky guest at Horseshoe Southern Indiana recently won $1 million on a $5 bet.
Allen Hicks of Elizabethtown, Ky., placed his bet on the 3-Card Poker 6-Card Bonus and hit a 6-Card Royal Flush of diamonds.
Hicks had been playing while at Horseshoe for the Celtic Woman concert on March 13.
"I was in disbelief," Hicks said. "It shows that anything is possible."
Hicks said he likes to play 3-Card Poker and plans to pay off his debt and take a trip to Hawaii. But first, he's on his way to Las Vegas to enjoy his winnings.
"We want to send our congratulations to our new millionaire," John Smith, general manager at Horseshoe Southern Indiana at Bridgeport, said. "It goes to show that Horseshoe Southern Indiana is the place to come for the biggest jackpots on our thrilling table games and slots."
Hicks won by playing a side bet as part of the Millionaire Maker game from Total Rewards. Now, eight players nationally have hit the one million 6-Card bonus bet on 3-Card Poker. Other Millionaire Maker games and events at Horseshoe Southern Indiana include Wheel of Fortune Millionaire Maker Sweepstakes, which is going on now.
