Bucking the odds, a lucky player at Paris Las Vegas hit the 6-Card Bonus jackpot at Three Poker and is a million bucks richer for it.

Johnita Ejercito, an attorney and nurse from Woodland Hills, California hit the 6-Card Bonus jackpot on Feb. 19, 2012.

The million-dollar 6-Card Bonus side bet for Three Card Poker is available exclusively at Caesars Entertainment casinos, and gives players the chance to win the million bucks with a total wager as small as $15 if they hit a super royal flush (9,10,J,Q,K,A) in diamonds.

Our friends at Shuffle Master, Inc. (the company that licenses the Three Card Poker game) tell us the odds of hitting the big bonus are 1-in-20.4 million. Hey, if it were easy, how much fun would that be?

This is the first time the million-dollar bonus has hit at a Las Vegas hotel, although it’s hit twice already at Caesars Entertainment resorts in Atlantic City.

The dream's alive in Vegas, baby!

Ejercito, who was staying at Paris Las Vegas at the time of her big windfall, says she plans to use the money to send her two daughters to London to get their Master’s in economics, and to get a few flights to visit them, too.
