Four months ago, a 28-year-old Michigan woman had a dream that she had won $4 million (Dh14.6 million) playing scratch offs. Motivated by what she saw in the dream, she started buying scratch-off tickets.
And recently, her dream turned real when she bagged a $4 million jackpot from a scratch-off ticket.
The elated woman told Michigan Lottery officials: "I know it sounds crazy, but about four months ago I had a dream that I won $4 million playing scratch offs." The Wayne County woman added: "Ever since, I've bought $30 tickets whenever I've had the chance."
She selected a Millionaire's Club ticket during her recent visit to a Valero gas station in Detroit, a UPI report said.
When the woman scratched the ticket off and saw the win symbol, she got gripped in excitement. "As I scratched off the prize and saw '4MIL,' I couldn't stop shaking and crying. I called my friend right away and asked him to come double check the ticket for me," she told the officials.
What will she do with the big prize? She reportedly intends to use her money to pay off student loans, save for her children's education, buy a new home and make investments.
"Winning this at my age is such an incredible opportunity for me and my family. I'm going to make good decisions so that I have this money for years to come," she pointed out.
