CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland has revealed the winner of its second $1 million drawing.

The casino tweeted a photo of Oanh V. who became the casino’s second millionaire Saturday as part of the $3 Million Summer Giveaway.

As part of the giveaway, all Ohio locations are giving away a combined $6 million in cash during three different drawings. The last drawing will be held on September 1.

In Cincinnati, the casino awarded a million-dollar prize to resident Kevin Lewis, then realized it had made a blunder. During a final verification check, casino leadership discovered that a second Cincinnati resident with the same winning name, Kevin Lewis, was the true winner of the drawing.

“This was our blunder,” said Horseshoe Cincinnati Senior Vice President and General Manager Kevin Kline in a release. “So, consistent with our commitment to do the right thing for our guests, Horseshoe awarded a $1 million dollar prize to each of the men.”
