Operators of the new Horseshoe Casino in Cincinnati are being credited for doing the right thing after making a mistake that cost them one-million-dollars.

The casino had a Saturday night drawing where it announced Kevin Lewis won a million-dollar prize.  Lewis was in the room and jumped for joy when he heard his name called out.  However, while he was being handed the giant check, casino managers realized it was a different man named Kevin Lewis who was the rightful winner.  After admitting their mistake, Horseshoe Casino operators gave each Kevin Lewis a million-dollar prize.
