Gambling Crook Gets $13 Million Slots Action Before Losing Everything

A hopeless gambling addict and unscrupulous daughter-in-law is now facing a long stretch behind bars after fleecing her husband’s elderly parents of their life savings and losing it all gambling.
In November 2008, Scott Dennison was given power of Attorney to handle his ageing parents finances to help make life easier for his 88 year old father and dementia suffering mother.
However, Scott then allowed his wife Jennifer Dennison, 42, daily control of the money who, unknown to her husband, had a severe gambling habit.
Over the space of the next two years Jennifer Dennison then proceeded to empty her parent-in-laws account of their $500,000 plus savings and gamble it all away at her local Seminole Casino in Tampa.
Jennifer Dennison’s lacerny was eventually discovered after Laverne Dennison’s cheque bounced after taking his wife to the dentist. Mr Dennison’s children soon discovered their parents’ accounts were empty and then reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Office.
“That’s when we learned we done been cleaned out. I didn’t sleep too good that night,” added Laverne Dennison.
Police subsequently discovered Jennifer Dennison had repeatedly forged her husband’s signature on cheques cashed at the casino and were then able to construct an accurate picture of her illegal gambling activities.
Apparently, over a two year period Jennifer Dennison spent the stolen $500,000 on slot machines which was regurgitated into at least $14 million before the money eventually drained away. As reported in local news source
“Some days Jennifer Dennison wagered nearly $290,000. She once won a car, earned more than $43,000 in profit on a single trip, and one day hit a $90,000 jackpot but still lost more than $3,000.”
As well as losing her in-law’s money, Jennifer Dennison also took a $300,000 mortgage out against her Brooksville home and in total she is believed to have spent around $734,000 gambling at the Seminole Casino in Tampa.
As Jennifer Dennison now faces a lengthy stretch behind bars, Mr Laverne Dennison, 88, has maintained his characteristically positive outlook and said he would now have to rely on help from his six children and his faith in God:
“He ain’t let me down so far. so I ain’t worried about him running out on me now,” added the World War II veteran and Great Depression survivor.
