Three Card Poker, 6 Card Bonus: The Fresh(ly Minted Millionaire) Maker

Who's the big winner? Johnita Ejercito is one of six big winners.

Forget Megabucks. Caesars Entertainment wants you to know that if your goal is to become mega-rich, the game to play is Three Card Poker 6 Card Bonus.

The gaming giant says six people have become millionaires since introducing the game (exclusively) just over a year ago both here in Vegas and in Atlantic City. Gamblers win when they place a side bet on the possibility of a six-card bonus in the form of a Super Royal Flush in Diamonds (9, 10, J, Q, K, A).

So far, gamblers have hit it big by wagering as little as $15. (Although, Caesars is conveniently not saying how much some of these lucky six have had to shell out on the other end of the spectrum before becoming millionaires, too.)

And, while this is the game to play, Vegas may not be the city to play it in. Only two gamblers hit the bonus here (at Paris and Flamingo) compared to four players in Atlantic City (at Harrah's and Caesars). But, even if you're in AC, you'll need to be on one helluva lucky streak. Pulse of Vegas blog says the chances of someone hitting the $1 mil payout are "1-in-20.4 million."

Love it

It may be a "sucker bet" but I love the 6-card bonus game... it's the only time where you can fold a horrible hand and still win a lot of money.  Full houses (which pay $125 on a $5 bet) are not uncommon... I hit three in about 30 minutes last weekend... and that was the only thing I was really getting.  It certainly keeps you playing...

Plus, if the dealer has three of a kind, you win!  And, of course, if you have the 4th, you win a lot more.

Typically Three Card Poker is pretty quick - you look at your three cards and you either play or fold - there's not much thought process with it - this makes it last a little bit longer since you play the 6-card bonus even when you fold - and, like I said, a horrible hand (4, 5, 7 for example) can turn into a great win (add the dealer's 6, 8 for a straight).  Fun stuff!
