Donna Clopp, of Mays Landing, on Saturday became the third person to win $1 million in the Millionaire Maker promotion this summer at Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City.

Clopp was picked from among 20 competitors at Harrah's Resort to claim the prize, joining two other New Jersey women - Patricia Sheik, of Lakewood, and Dorothy Muller, of Cherry Hill - as freshly minted millionaires through the casino program.

Clopp has served as an office manager for an animal hospital in Camden for the past 25 years, the casino hotel said.

She said she will use her winnings to rescue and help animals in need - and used the occasion to offer two kittens for adoption.

The final winner in the Millionaire Maker promotion will be drawn Sept. 1.
