Royal Flush Creates New Poker Millionaire

Lady Turns Twenty Dollars Into One Million Via Royal Flush Promotion


According to the New York Post, $20 was turned into $1 million recently when a lady got an early Christmas present at an Atlantic City resort. The new millionaire was playing three card poker (6 card) when she got a royal flush in diamonds.

The diamond royal flush gave the lucky player the top prize in the resort’s promotion, which offers various cash prizes if players draw a royal flush, depending on the amount bet and suit of the flush.

It was the second time a player has hit the royal flush of diamonds since the promotion began late September. The other suits mean a windfall of $100,000.
