How’s this for a Christmas miracle? A Lakewood native won $1 million on just a $5 wager at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Saturday.
It was the first time in the resort’s 15-year history a $5 wager netted such a prize.
According to the casino, the man put $5 on The Three Card Poker “6 Card Bonus” bet.
The winner was dealt a 10, a Queen and the Ace of Diamonds, while the dealer held a 9, Jack and the King of Diamonds.
That gave the winner a six-card Royal Flush of Diamonds.
Experts say the odds of hitting the flush are one in 20,348,320.
