100-year-old spending birthday in Vegas

In honor of her 100th birthday, Jean Krueger will be surrounded by her family hoping to win big.

Krueger, who lives in Hastings with her daughter Joyce Jarosik, is celebrating her centennial birthday today with family in Las Vegas, a place she and her husband used to visit three or four times a year.
