LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Let's call this the "Tax Day Miracle."

Caesars Entertainment announced Monday a winner of its table games-exclusive $1 million jackpot at the Flamingo hotel-casino on April 15.

According to the resort company, San Diego resident Veera Devabhaktineni hit a six-card Royal Flush in diamonds during a hand of Crazy 4 Poker. With a $5 side bet on the hand, Devabhaktineni hit the $1 million jackpot after an hour of play.

Caesars offers the static $1 million jackpot on all poker-based table games at its Las Vegas Strip casinos. The six-card Royal Flush pays out $1 million if the player's hand and a set of side cards make the hand in diamonds. For all other suits, players win $100,000. A $5 side bet for each hand makes a player eligible for the payout.

Last year, Caesars' table games promotion made eight players into millionaires.
