PLANTATION, Fla. — Until the moment he pulled into his driveway, it seemed like one lucky night for 74-year-old Thomas Gigliotti.

After several hours playing Texas Hold 'em poker at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Gigliotti and his wife Josephine came home to Plantation early Saturday with about $4,000 in cash. But just steps from their front door, at least two armed, masked men ran toward them, pulled Gigliotti from his car, knocked him to the ground and stole the cash.
