Horseshoe Casino Awards $1M Prize to Wrong Winner Ends Up Paying Twice

The Horseshoe Casino in Cincinnati is currently holding its “$3 Million Summer Giveaway” promo, in which three monthly draws held from July to September awards $1 million cash prize to a single monthly winner. Yet by some stroke of luck in favor of a customer named Kevin Lewis, the casino committed a mistake in awarding the prize money to him last August 10. Further verification conducted during the casino’s second authentication process disclosed that another Kevin Lewis, who was not around during the August draw, was supposed to win.

Apparently, the two Kevin Lewises had a lot of things in common including the fact that both men are in their 50s and about to get married; more importantly, both men are regular guests at the Horseshoe Casino.

Instead of taking back the erroneously awarded cash prize, Horseshoe Cincinnati’s management decided to give both the wrong and right Kevin Lewis their million-dollar prize. Horseshoe Cincinnati SVP and GM Kevin Kline issued a statement confirming that a total of $2 million in cash prizes was awarded in the August 10 drawing, as the company is bent on honoring their commitment to their guests.

This denotes that on the next scheduled draw on September 01, Horseshoe Cincinnati patrons who are members of the casino’s Total Rewards program still have the chance to win $1 million. All they need to do to join the promo is to swipe their cards at the “$3 Million Summer Giveaway” kiosk. One swipe a day entitles a guest to one entry, while those playing at the slots and table games have greater chances of getting more entries for every 25 Tier Credits.
