Virginia man turns $20 into $1 million playing one hand of Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus at Bally’s Atlantic City


ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — (PRESS RELEASE) — Caesars Atlantic City has announced that Wednesday at 3:23pm its Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus hit at Bally’s for $1,000,000.

Anthony Miles, of Powhatan, Virginia, got the jackpot of a lifetime when he looked down at his hand in Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus and saw a royal flush, all in the diamonds suit. That one bet of $20 helped add $1 million to Anthony’s Atlantic City trip.

The Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus began back in 2011. On Sunday October 23rd 2011, Caesars Atlantic City crowned the first ever $1 million jackpot winner when the man flashed a royal flush all in the diamond suit. Since that date, Caesars Atlantic City has awarded six other winners various jackpot amounts, including another Virginia native, John Routsis of Virginia Beach, $100,000 in 2013.

The 6 Card Bonus side bet on Three Card Poker gives players the chance to win $1 million with a total wager as small as $15 if they hit a Super Royal in Diamonds: 9, 10, J, Q, K, A. Additionally, $100,000 payouts will be available for the Super Royal in Hearts, Clubs or Spades.

Originally launched in Las Vegas, Atlantic City is now currently offering the opportunity to win this impressive jackpot. The game offers the first table-game payout of this size without an escalating progressive jackpot in a traditional brick-and-mortar casino. For years, slot players have enjoyed the opportunity to win mega-jackpots, and now, Caesars Entertainment Corporation is offering this same opportunity to table game players where any player can win, on any day, at any time, in just one hand.

To be eligible to make the 6 Card Bonus $1 million wager a player must place an ante wager and a Pair Plus wager based on the posted table minimums. The 6 Card Bonus wager is offered at $5-$100 with odds paid on all hands of 3-of-a-kind or better, except for the $100,000 and $1 million Super Royal hands, which are fixed payouts (see pay table below).
