Dorothy Boone of Texas celebrates her big win at Harveys Lake Tahoe.

Presidents’ Day Weekend came to a thrilling close for Dorothy Boone of Temple, Texas, as she hit the three-card poker progressive jackpot at Harveys Lake Tahoe on Monday resulting in a win of $1,340,518.

Dorothy had been playing for about an hour when she hit the progressive jackpot with a Royal Flush in Spades on the three-card poker table at Harveys. It was a first time Lake Tahoe visit for Boone and her husband, which almost didn’t happen as their group had originally planned to visit Laughlin.

Boone talked about using the money to “buy a new house” and take her grandkids to Disney World or Disneyland. Her reaction when the big jackpot hit was, “Huh… Really?!” and advised her friends and other players to always, “keep the faith.”
