New Milford, CT.- Carolyn O’Brien of New Milford Connecticut had no idea that a psychic reading she had done for her years ago would turn out to be true so many years later. During that reading, a psychic told her that she had seen her with “a check in your hand cheering ‘I did it!’” According to the CT Lottery, this is exactly what has happened to O’Brien.
The lucky lady decided to stop by the store on her way to see her son at school one day and purchased a “$3,000,000 Royale” instant ticket. She later found out that she was the grand prize winner and couldn’t believe it. She began sobbing with joy at the news.
“Everything she told me has come true,” O’Brien told the CT Lottery, referring to the psychic.
She also told the lottery officials that she planned on paying off the basic debts that most people are sidled with, such as mortgage, car payments, loans etc. and is going to spend more time with her dog Shea, as well as getting herself a ‘mani-pedi’.
“The pressure is off. We’re going to pay off our kids’ college tuitions, the mortgage and invest. You don’t make this stuff up!” O’Brien says enthusiastically.
The store that she bought the winning ticket from, AARI Foods Inc. on the New Milford Turnpike in New Preston, will be receiving a $30 check from the lottery commission. In case you’re wondering, O’Brien and her husband chose to take the lump sum option for her winnings.
