Hitting the jackpot is a one in a million chance. And Kevin Lewis was than one in a million. The bad news is that he was the wrong Kevin Lewis.
Recently the Horseshoe Casino in Cincinnati, Ohio, made an official announcement that Kevin Lewis won $1,000,000. However, it turned out that the winner shared his name with another citizen of Ohio. On the fateful day of the announcement the winner was staying at home in front of his TV. Fortunately for his namesake, the other Kevin Lewis was present at the casino. Since he reacted at his name’s announcement, the casino thought they were giving the million dollars to the right guy. As time passed, the management realized their mistake. Expectantly, the casino would have taken the matter to court. However, they made the news for something else – they also gifted the rightful winner with $1,000,000.
People say the house always wins. Well, they still did. Since casinos make such amount of money in no time, ever since the news broke out their generous actions granted Horseshoe Casino even more clients.
