TUNICA, MS -

(WMC-TV) - Karen Christian is the second Memphian to win $1 million in just two weeks after entering the Millionaire Maker drawing at the Horseshoe Casino and Hotel in Tunica.

She is very thankful to have won, but is still having a hard time believing that it actually happened.

"I'm still trying to pinch myself like, 'This is real, Karen. This is real. This is really happening,'" she said. "I thank God, I really do. It's truly a blessing he sent my way. And I believe it was meant for me."

Karen said one of the first things she plans to do with her winnings is take a vacation.

The casino draws a new winner every Saturday.
