LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A woman described as a "downtown Las Vegas regular from Hawaii" hit a six-figure jackpot at the Fremont hotel this week, and then another $5,000 while waiting for her money.
Louise regularly visits the California hotel-casino downtown, Boyd Gaming says.
On Wednesday morning she decided to stop by the Fremont and play Aristocrat’s Buffalo Inferno slot game.

It was there when she hit a $789,062 progressive jackpot.
At first, she thought she won $79,000, Boyd Gaming says, but quickly realized she had actually won 10 times that amount.
While waiting to be paid on her huge win, the company says Louise hit a second jackpot of more than $5,000 on a nearby machine.
