CINCINNATI - Cincinnati has a new millionaire.
Reatha Jenkins of Cincinnati won her fortune at Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Saturday evening as part of the casino's $3 Million Summer Giveaway promotion.
Surrounded by hundreds of other guests, Jenkins' name was randomly selected by casino officials, according to a press release from the Horseshoe Casino.
"I couldn't make my millions working so I guessed I would get it here at the Horseshoe," Jenkins said after claiming her prize. "If you believe it, it can happen -- I believed I could be a millionaire."
Jenkins is the first of three people who will claim $1 million prizes in Cincinnati as part of the casino's summer promotion, which was introduced July 5 during a block party.
Horseshoe Cincinnati's sister casino, Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, is also giving away three $1 million prizes.
"We are excited to be creating three new millionaires and continuing the legend in Cincinnati," said casino Senior Vice President and General Manager, Kevin Kline.
The remaining Cincinnati drawings are scheduled to take place at the casino on Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Sept. 1.
