Lucky Texas Gambler Hits $1.3 Million Jackpot at Lake Tahoe Casino

Three Card Poker TableDorothy Boone, of Temple, Texas, has a lot to thank her friends for.

They told Mrs. Boone she should take a family trip down to Lake Tahoe with her husband. Instead of going to Laughlin as originally planned, she took the advice of her friends. It was a decision that paid off tremendously.

On Monday night, Boone hit a three-card poker progressive jackpot at the poker tables at Harveys Lake Tahoe, winning a total jackpot of $1,340,518. It was a warm welcome indeed, as it was the first Lake Tahoe visit for Boone and her husband.

When asked what Boone is planning on doing with the winnings, she says she’s “looking forward to using the money to buy a new house and take her grandchildren to Disney World or Disneyland.”
