A UK Lotto winner who took home £5.4 million 22 years ago has said that she’s certain it’s not the last we’ll hear from her after she had a premonition about winning again.
Deana Sampson, from Sheffield in England, scooped £5.4 million on the UK Lotto with a lucky ticket 22 years ago, and this week she returned to the same store, a post office in Sheffield, where she bought her first winning ticket saying that she’d had a premonition that she will win again within the next year.
“I know I will win it again,” Ms Sampson said. “I think it will be soon, within a year.”A group of couriers from Sheffield recently won £228,000 on the EuroMillions draw, while earlier this year we told you about a UK Lotto winner from Sheffield who became the UK’s most charitable lottery winner, giving away most of her £7.6 million winnings.
The 56-year-old glamorous grandmother said that she had a premonition in a dream in which her late brother told her that she will win another UK Lotto jackpot. “My brother’s watching over me and so are my mum and dad now,” she said. Just earlier this week we told you about a man from Maryland in the US who won his second lottery scratch card prize in the space of 18 months.
When she won her jackpot in 1996, Ms Sampson had been through tough times, as she’d lost her first husband to a road accident and her brother had passed away just weeks before she bought the UK Lotto ticket that would change her fortunes. It was her late brother, Glyn, who convinced Ms Sampson to buy a UK Lotto ticket in the first place, as he came to her in a dream back then as well. A man from Québec in Canada said that a premonition led him to his $7 million Lotto 649 jackpot win, while a UK Lotto winner from Essex in England said that a psychic predicted her first £1 million win, and then predicted another.
Just a few days later, she went to Stradbroke post office in Sheffield and bought her winning UK Lotto ticket from postmistress Balwinder Dhillon, who still runs the store today. “We were so excited when she won. She was one of my favourite customers, chatty and lovely,” said Ms Dhillon.
