You’ve heard that some people have all the luck, right?

That may very well apply to Louise (no last name given), a regular visitor from Hawaii who stopped by the Fremont in downtown Las Vegas.

She hit a jackpot of $789,062 on Aristocrat’s Buffalo Inferno slot game about 8:35 a.m. Wednesday.

The lucky guest thought she won $79,000 at first but quickly realized she won 10 times that amount.

While waiting to get her payout from Boyd Gaming, she hit for $5,000 on a nearby machine.
