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