$1 million casino winner now broke and convicted Published: March 27, 2014

Kevin Lewis has had a heck of a year, says Seven months ago, he had $1 million in his pocket and a big smile on his face.

He had neither Wednesday, though, when he stood before a judge and avoided going to prison for drug convictions when he was placed on three years of probation.

In August, Horseshoe Cincinnati Casino awarded Lewis $1 million as part of loyalty rewards programs for regular customers. But when casino officials discovered they awarded the money to the wrong Kevin Lewis – both are the same age and live in Cincinnati – it let him keep the $1 million and gave the “right” Kevin Lewis another $1 million.
