What do you do when you make a million-dollar mistake? If you’re the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, you make good on your word.

The Cincinnati casino made a huge mistake over the weekend. But unlike G.O.B. Bluth, the casino actually owned up to it.

The Horseshoe awarded a $1 million promotional give-away on Saturday. “Our next millionaire, our next millionaire is Kevin Lewis!” the announcer yelled to much excitement. When 52-year-old Kevin L. Lewis heard his name, he began to celebrate. Later, though, casino officials conferred and realized the mistake: This was the wrong Kevin Lewis — the winner was a 50-year-old man named Kevin Lewis. Same name, nearly the same age.

So how did the casino deal with the obvious blunder? It awarded the $1 million prize to both men, according to WCPO in Cincy:

And that’s why you should never gamble. Casinos make so much money from you losers that it’s just like, go ahead, take a million bucks.
