Frank Sinatra when crooned, “luck be a woman tonight.” At the Horseshoe Gambling establishment Cincinnati Saturday night though, luck can be discovered in a name.
Before cameras and a group of pregnant guests, an announcer expanded: “Our next millionaire, our next millionaire is Kevin Lewis!”.
Cheers went up as Kevin L. Lewis, a 52-year-old Cincinnati native, was called as the second of three winners of a $1 million promotional give-away by Horseshoe this summertime. He hugged his fiancée to commemorate his instant wealth.
The winner told the gambling enterprise his fiancée kept saying he was visiting succeed due to the fact that they wanted to go on a trip.
“When I heard my name I said God finally offered me a big succeed … a lot of screaming and happiness, being at the right location, at the right time,” he stated.
Things was Lewis, the man caught specifically on camera by 9 On Your Side, had not been the exact same Kevin Lewis the casino was trying to find.
As Jennifer Kulczycki, Communication Director for Horseshoe parent company, Rock Game LLC, explained Sunday early morning: There were 2 men, with the same name, from Cincinnati who had gotten in the free gift.
The second man, likewise named Kevin Lewis, 50, as well as a Cincinnati native, was at house when the winner was announced.
“I didn’t think it initially,” Kevin Lewis told Horseshoe. “(My fiancée) called me and said they called your name. I was calm. I soothed (my fiancée) down.”.
It was only after Kevin L. Lewis stood prior to cameras to accept his prize that gambling enterprise leadership realized that the 2nd Kevin Lewis was the rightful winner of the $1 million prize.
“This was our mistake,” stated Horseshoe Cincinnati Senior Vice President and General Manager Kevin Kline.

“So, consistent with our commitment to do the right thing for our guests, Horseshoe awarded a $1 million prize to each of the guys,” Kline said.
Both men informed the gambling enterprise that the $1 million profits, before taxes, was the biggest reward either have actually ever received. Both said they are Horseshoe regulars.
