LAKEWOOD, NJ — A New Jersey man turned a $5 bet into $1 million with just one hand of poker, a casino said Sunday.

A man identified by the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa as “Harold M.” won after betting only $5 on three-card poker.

The casino said Harold hit a six-card royal straight flush, his first time betting at that location.
