What are the odds of getting the 9 - A of Diamonds in Ceasars Entertainment Million Dollar Bonus in Three Card Poker. You must iuse your 3 cards and the dealers 3 cards.

I think it is 1 chance in 20,358,520 (or 20,358,519 to 1 against it on any specific deal of one player hand and one dealer hand).

Curious because it has hit twice since they started it at Harrahs Atlantic City in Sept.

Any guess as to how many player hands have been dealt in that period? That would be a first step in estimating how usual or unusual it would be to hit twice in that time.

Funny you should bring that up. I was at Harrah's Council Bluffs last night (they don't currently have the $1m promotion on the 6-card bonus yet). A guy got they Royal, in diamonds, with the 6 of diamonds as his sixth card, instead of the 9. Talk about a close call.

We see ads in Atlantic City saying that a player bet $19 in Harrahs and won one million dollars. The rules for the bonus state that the player must play the Pair Plus bet in order to also place a 6-card bonus bet. So, at a $5 minimum table, he would bet $5 on ante, $5 on Pair Plus, $5 on the 6-card bonus, and $5 on play. Shouldn't the ads say that he bet $20 instead of $19?

Yeah that is a mistake. You are correct, the minimum bet in order to win the million is $20.

TECHNICALLY, the minimum bet to win the $1m is $15, as the player is not REQUIRED to make the Play bet. However, the player's minimum hand is a flush, possibly a straight flush, so of course he/she would want to make the play bet.
