A woman from the United States won a $25,000 lottery prize with numbers from her “sister’s dream”.
The 68-year-old from Baltimore city of Maryland state told Maryland Lottery that she used to pick numbers for picks 2, 3 and 4 from her dreams. The lottery winner added she decided to pick the fifth number from her sister’s dream.
The woman claimed her sibling told her about a dream in which she was riding a bus numbered number “23815”. The lottery winner bought a 50-cent ticket from a store with the numbers that were told to her.
The 68-year-old said she was stunned when she saw the results on the application.
“I was excited,” the lottery prize winner said. “I saw nothing in my Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets, but when I checked the Pick 5 it was straight across. I couldn’t believe it.”
The woman said she would use the cash prize to pay her bills.
Earlier, a man won a lottery prize of US$387,450 from a ticket which he was going to get rid of it in the trash while washing his clothes.
Marcus “Bezo” Barnes was washing his clothes when he saw an old Cash 5 with a ticket from the Virginia Lottery.
“I was about to throw it away,” the Hampton man recalled. “But then I decided to check it because it might be worth a few bucks.”
He matched all five winning numbers to win the money.
The winning numbers were 6-18-20-22-24. He used Easy Pick and allowed the computer to select the numbers on his ticket at random.
